My bro Ted Mosby...
The TV show How I Met Your Mother brings great joy and happiness to my life. My good friends Emilee and Josh had always told me how funny it was but I just hadn't picked it up until a few months ago.
I had recently finished watching the tenth season of Friends and had caught up with both Downton Abbey and Mad Men. I needed a new TV show. Enter HIMYM and the beauty of Netflix. I'm pretty sure I watched all six seasons in less than a month.
All of the characters hold a special place in my heart (yes, even Barney), but the character I identify with most is Ted. Yeah, the title of this post kind of gave it away. I am the female version of Ted. The quote below from the pilot episode sums up who Ted is and what he wants out of life. My feelings are mutual.
Ted: You know what? I'm done being single, I'm not good at it. Look, obviously you can't tell a woman you just met that you love her, but it sucks that you can't. I'll tell you something though, if a woman, not you, just some hypothetical woman, were to bear with me through all this, I think I'd make a damn good husband, because that's the stuff I'd be good at. Stuff like making her laugh and being a good father and walking her five hypothetical dogs. Being a good kisser...
Robin: Everyone thinks they're a good kisser.
Ted: Oh, I've got references...
Ted longs for the day when he will get to be a husband and father. There's nothing I want more out of life than to be a wife and mother. Ted isn't good at being single and neither am I. Unlike a lot of my peers, I want commitment. I'm not afraid of it, I just haven't found it yet. It takes a lot for me to fall but when I do I'm all in. I see the big picture just as much as the right now.
Mosby and I...we see eye to eye. We're totally bros. Even though the series is still going, we know Ted is victorious in the end. I mean the show is called How I Met Your Mother. If Ted can get his happy ending one day there's hope for me too. Love ya bro...keep the hope alive!
