Ted And Robin
You still have feelings for your first love. And secretly, you hope that it’s mutual. You love the idea of someone pining after you for years after you break up – you’re a big fan of ‘dash to the airport’ scenes in movies and heartfelt ‘I never stopped loving you’ confessions. In fact, you may even have delivered one or two of them in your day.
You’re a little preoccupied in most of your relationships, because you’ve never gotten over ‘the one who got away.’ You have a box full of their stuff back home and every time you go through a breakup, you bust it back open and wonder what they’re up to these days.
Ted And Victoria
You’re a practical romantic. You lowkey daydream about meet cutes, but you also know that if your interests aren’t aligned with someone else’s, it’s just not going to work out.
Once you get into a relationship, you give it your absolute all. You want the person you’re with to know that they have your entire heart and that you’ll do everything you can to make them happy. You believe that romance still has its place in modern society, and you’re just aching to find someone who shares that view.
Ted And Stella
You have horrible taste in everything.
You jump into bad relationships before you’re ready, because you’re horny and/or desperate to get married. And then they blow up in your face and you just cannot figure out why.
Seriously though. Ted/Stella was the WORST.
Ted And Zoey
You mistake conflict for connection. You have a fiery temper and are always looking for a similarly ‘passionate’ partner who wants to stay up ‘debating’ (read: fighting) until the wee hours of the morning.
Most of your relationships are stormy, unstable and short-lived. Your sex life is off the hook, though. So, props to that one, I guess.
Barney And Robin
You want to marry your best friend. You think that romance is overrated and your main goal is finding someone who is just as awesome as you are to chill out with you for the rest of eternity. You’re everyone’s favorite bro (regardless of your gender/sex) and you just want a relationship that includes as little drama as possible.
The problem is, you aren’t a huge fan of putting effort into relationships. You prefer to just let things happen naturally – which means you often end up either (a) single, or (b) with someone who wants to chase you relentlessly – which instantly becomes a turnoff. Hm.
Barney And Quinn
You’re one independent lass or lad. You don’t want your partner to be a ball and chain – you want to have your own life, and be with someone else who has theirs.
The problem is, you’re not particularly willing to compromise when it comes to relationships. Your work, your ambitions and your independence are always going to come first. Which means you’re either going to end up with someone who’s willing to compromise in all the ways you aren’t, or else you’re going to just keep flying solo.
Barney And That Random British Girl Whose Name I Can’t Be Bothered To Remember
You’re attracted to people who are the polar opposite of you, with hopes that you’re going to ‘change’ them (or that they’re going to change you, depending on who in the Barney-British girl dynamic you identify with). It’s a recipe for disaster, but you probably need to learn that the hard way.
In relationships, you’re a nagger. Or someone who secretly likes to be nagged. But there’s definitely nagging involved. And a lot of it.
(Yes, yes, I know her name was Nora. She’s just so damn forgettable. Don’t @ me.)
Robin And Don
You often have trouble determining whether you want to be someone or if you want to be on them. You’re naturally attracted to people you feel competitive with, which means you often end up with partners who share your same strengths and weaknesses.
In relationships, you find yourself power clashing every now and then. You want to be the top dog and you find it hard to compromise – but at the same time, you only want to date other top dogs. You’re still working on figuring that out.
Robin And Kevin
You’re attracted to people you think you can fix. You’re completely well adjusted but you’re constantly finding yourself in relationships with people who are… well, a little less adjusted.
In relationships, you’re used to putting in most of the effort. You’ve been accused of having a ‘savior complex’ but you prefer to think of yourself as a natural therapist. You might even be a real therapist. Like Kevin.
Ted And The Mother
You self-identify as a hopeless romantic. You get a vision in your head about how you want a relationship to look and then try to warp the relationship to fit it, instead of letting things take their natural course. You highkey believe in fate/soulmates.
When you get into a relationship, you go ALL in. You need a partner who can handle your intensity and devotion – because you aren’t just devoted to them… you’re devoted to the idea of them, which you’ve been relentlessly chasing for years.
Lily And Marshall
You are actually incredibly stable. You probably have a secure attachment style and grew up with positive role models. Congratulations.
In a relationship you’re a stable and healthy partner. You’re independent yet loving, and everyone wants to be with you. We get it. You figured this love stuff out. Show us your ways!
