Swara Bhasker travels to Delhi by road after her mother suffers a fracture

The lockdown has left many away from their families for over two months with barely any way of meeting them due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Now that the Lockdown 4.0 is upon us, the government has given a few leniencies and has opened up opportunities for those who need to travel for emergencies. It was only recently that Swara Bhasker learned that her mother has suffered a fracture in her right arm.

Swara Bhasker travels to Delhi by road after her mother suffers a fracture

Needless to say, it left her restless and she was waiting for the permissions to open up before she could apply to leave Mumbai. As soon as the permissions were sorted, Swara left for Delhi via road since opting for a flight is not an option yet. It took her two days to reach Delhi with an overnight stay and now she’s with her mother to help her out. She’s very grateful for the authorities for allowing her to travel and she has taken all the necessary self-isolation precautions and has followed the protocols.

Coronavirus outbreak has put all our lives on an indefinite halt. While all of us are trying our best to adhere to the norms laid out by the government, it is very difficult to identify the carrier. Prassthanam actor, Satyajeet Dubey’s mother has recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently being treated in a private hospital in Mumbai.

The actor recently announced that he is currently under complete lockdown with his sister, but since they both have been asymptomatic, they haven’t been tested for it. He also mentioned how being an actor worked as a privilege for him to get a bed for his mom in the hospital. He says that he had to make some calls and pull some strings, he is thankful for the work that he does and those that helped him out during this difficult time. He is constantly in touch with his mother over the phone and she helps him out with a lot of things at home.

Satyajeet further mentioned how the doctor said that even a currency note could be a carrier. He’s hoping that his mother and all those affected by the pandemic come out stronger than earlier.

The Bachelorette’s Tyler Cameron Honoring Late Mother With Charity Fundraiser

Tyler Cameron from The Bachelorette is honoring his late mother with a charity fundraiser. Andrea Hermann Cameron, 55, died February 29 from a brain aneurysm.

The Jupiter, Florida, real estate agent was beloved by many for her warm personality and charitable endeavors. Tyler told the Palm Beach Post that, “she was a mom to so many” in the Jupiter community. In the wake of Andrea’s sudden passing, Tyler and his brothers Austin and Ryan have created a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising the money needed to start a foundation in their mother’s honor. To date, more than 130 people have donated nearly half of the fundraiser’s $20,000 goal.

The family released a statement detailing the tribute: “We are developing a charitable foundation so that she can continue to impact others as she has always done; we feel this is the best way to continue her legacy of giving. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to the GoFundMe account so we can begin our quest of serving others like she had her entire life.”

Andrea was first taken to the hospital on Feb. 27. As a result, Tyler was forced to cancel a group run that he was scheduled to host for Good Morning America. Although he gave very little detail about the cancellation, he appealed to well-wishers to pray for his mom and family. On the day of her death, Tyler posted a touching message on Instagram in remembrance of his mom. Support poured in – even from other members of Bachelor Nation – including a heartfelt message of condolence from The Bachelor season 23 winner Cassie Randolph: “I’m so so sorry. Truly breaks my heart. Sending love and prayers.” Fans might remember Andrea from her son Tyler’s hometown visit when Bachelorette Hannah Brown journeyed to meet her boyfriend’s family. During his season, it was revealed that Tyler’s father had endured some health-related issues, and had even fallen on hard times financially. The money issues were said to have contributed to the demise of Andrea’s marriage to Tyler’s dad. Thankfully, Tyler and his brothers have their dad and extended family members to rely on during this period of mourning.

Tyler has shown amazing grace during this tough grieving period. He has honored his mom’s legacy in a way that would surely make her proud. His kind words about her on Instagram, as well as his family’s desire to continue his mom’s caring actions through a charitable organization in her name are great examples of love. Andrea’s death at such a young age shows us that life is definitely fragile and each day isn’t promised to anyone. May she rest in peace, and may her legacy of kindness, compassion, and service live on through her soon-to-be established charity as well as her doting family.

How I Met Your Mother: 10 Biggest Ways Marshall Changed From Season 1 To The Finale

For an entire generation of millennials, How I Met Your Mother was the go-to sitcom to learn about life and love in your twenties. Built around the simple premise of a father telling his children about meeting their mother for the first time, the show was surprisingly subversive and unexpected, thanks to some solid writing.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: Top 10 Hilarious Marshall Eriksen Quotes

Another big strength of the show was the solid cast of main characters. The nicest of those characters was undoubtedly Marshall Eriksen, played by Jason Segel, the gentle giant from a small town who became a big city lawyer and married the girl of his dreams, Lily. Here are 10 significant ways the character of Marshall evolved from the first season to the last.

10 Becoming A Dad

One of the biggest arcs for Marshall was his marriage to Lily and the birth of their son Marvin. It was Marvin who prompted Marshall to take a look at his life and assess what drastic changes he had to make in order to support his son and his wife.

It was also Marvin that forced Marshall to give up on a lot of his reckless bachelor ways from before and become a more mature and responsible person. Marshall went from being an adult with a childlike disposition towards life to a grown man who accepted that his first priority in life was no longer his own well-being, but the well-being of his family.

9 Compromising At Work

Marshall had always been an idealist when it came to his work. He wanted to become an environmental lawyer and help save the world. But with the start of his own family, Marshall was forced to consider the downside of working with environmental law firms in return for very little pay.

He even switched sides for a while and started lawyering for Barney’s big, bad multinational corporation. He returned to being an environmental lawyer soon after, but the experience did make Marshall start seeing his work in less idealistic terms.

8 Going Full Italian

Lily had always had an obsession with what she saw as the glamorous life of Italy. Marshall did not share her enthusiasm, having only learned Italian for one year in school, and having forgotten most of it by the time he was an adult. In the future, it is revealed that Marshall and Lily moved to Italy and stayed there for a full year.

In that time, Marshall learned to appreciate the upsides of living in Italy and emerged from the experience a more knowledgable and cultured person.

7 Looking Beyond Lily For Love

Marshall and Lily were the ideal couple of the show and the ultimate example of true love that inspired Ted to look for his own soulmate. But there came a time when Marshall broke up with Lily, and he actually started looking elsewhere for love.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: Marshall’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

This was a huge step for Marshall, in acknowledging that there are more options in his love life than the only girl he had ever been in love with and that he needed to look at what else life had to offer beyond Lily.

6 Matured Lovelife

Marshall and Lily did not stay broken up for long. But when the two did get back together, it was with a renewed appreciation for the special bond the two shared. Lily, in particular, had in some ways started taking Marshall’s unthinking devotion for granted.

With the breakup and their subsequent reunion, the two enjoyed a more mature kind of love, love that had passed through the forge and emerged a stronger, more balanced emotion than the heady, high-school romance puppy love that the two had shared in the past.

5 Accepting His Shortcomings

Young Marshall in high school had a lot of dreams for what his adult life would be like. He saw himself as a dashing professional with a hot beau and an even hotter ride. Young Marshall wrote his future self a letter to the same effect, which older Marshall read and immediately went into a shame spiral because of all the ways his present self was not as good as he had imagined he would be.

By the end of the episode, Marshal had accepted that he was not going to have as perfect a life as his younger self had envisioned, but he was at peace with what he had achieved in life.

4 Giving Up His Bachelor Ways

Married life was not all smooth sailing for Marshall. One of the biggest sacrifices he had to make was giving up his carefree bachelor ways of hanging out at Ted’s apartment and constant clubbing and boozing to settle down to couples nights with Lily.

At first, Marshall made an attempt to hold on to his carefree ways by ditching Lily and going with Ted and Barney to a party. But eventually, he realized that he was no longer interested in having fun if it did not involve Lily, and willingly gave up his bachelor lifestyle.

3 Growing Close To Robin

Robin and Marshall had less one-on-one interactions with each other than the rest of the group, because of a personal hangup that Marshall had about getting attracted to Robin without intending to. So for the most part, in the beginning, Marshall kept his distance from Robin and only interacted with her in group settings.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 10 Biggest Ways Robin Changed From Season 1 To The Finale

Eventually, however, Marshall got past his fear, over the course of a single episode exploring the concept of the ‘Mermaid theory’, and the two have remained closer friends ever since.

2 Making Peace With His Father’s Death

One of the most heartbreaking arcs for Marshall had to do with him coming to terms with the death of his father, who had always been incredibly close to him. Marshall had to face the prospect of not being able to speak to the man who had raised him ever again, even as Marshall himself prepared to become a father to baby Marvin.

A late-night chat with his father’s memory in a car helped Marshall manage his emotions and become hopeful that he could follow in his father’s footsteps and become a good dad.

1 Becoming Less Naive

Marshall started out as the most naive and optimistic member of the group. By the end of the series, he was still optimistic, but his naivety had been sanded off to a considerable extent thanks to years of living in the big city and being friends with people like Barney.

Through all the experiences that he gained, all the heartbreak and all the regrets, and seeing his friends and himself stumble from one personal crisis to the next, Marshall became a wiser and better person.

How I Met Your Mother: Marshall’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

Marshall Eriksen is every woman’s dream guy. He had all the good qualities, he was the redeeming factor that kept HIMYM  going on. Marshall was the perfect guy, he went to Columbia Law, he lawyered people left, right and center. Marshall was strong and athletic. At the same time, he had a warm, sensitive side too.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: Lily’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

Marshall was overshadowed by the two characters of Barney and Ted. HIMYM was mostly about Ted and Barney trying to get their ducks in a row. This, unfortunately, meant injustice to the wholesome character of Marshall. As a start, let’s count ten times Marshall said something way too profound about love.

10 I’m Marrying That Girl

“Yeah, I’m scared, okay? But when I think of spending the rest of my life with Lily, committing forever, no other women, doesn’t scare me at all. I’m marrying that girl.”

The fact that Marshall was the yin to Lily’s yang was established in the pilot episode. Sure, their relationship went through bumps, but Marshall was always sure about Lily. He could always speak his heart out to her. Right after proposing to Lily, he chose to tell her he actually liked olives. He’d been keeping it a secret since he was eighteen. Lily’s olive theory was debunked there and then but it didn’t matter. They both liked olives and each other. How rare is that?

9 Our Relationship Is Based On Mutual Trust

“So, the ring’s really off, huh? Awesome. Well, just tell her I called and tell her that she’s awesome. Really really awesome. Our relationship is based on mutual trust. I can’t breathe.”

Marshall was heartbroken to discover his fiancé Lily had taken off her ring while in a pub. As a result, he started to tear up and sing to himself. No wonder Lily called him Marshmallow.

The incident takes place in “Sweet Taste of Liberty.” Lily and Robin are drinking the night away at MacLaren’s. Lily gets jealous of all the male attention that Robin’s been getting. She calls Marshall who blames the ring on her finger. Lily takes the ring off at Marshall’s advice. Poor Marshall tears up.

8 Fiance’s Hot Backside That You’re Dabbing!

“You wanna mess, pal? That’s my fiance’s hot backside that you’re dabbing! Baby, Please Don’t ever take that ring off again, no matter how awesome I say that it is.”

RELATED: HIMYM: 5 Reasons Robin Should Have Dumped Barney (5 Reasons He Should Have Dumped Her)

The scene is in continuation of the previous scene. Marshall is the kind of guy who’d advise Lily to take her ring off and have fun at a local pub. But his jealousy quickly gets in the way. Which means that he sobs to himself while singing. Meanwhile, Lily accidentally sits on a grape and a gay man helps her remove the stain. Marshall waltzes into MacLaren’s and is horrified to discover a man dabbing Lily’s back. He’s relieved to learn the man is gay.

Turns out, Marshall was the jealous type, no matter how awesome he said taking off the ring was.

7 Come On Bro, Don’t Bogart All The Funyuns

“Come on, maybe the only sentence I know is ‘come on bro, don’t Bogart all the Funyuns,’ but I know in my heart that you understand me anyway. Because no one I know has better-understood anyone better than you and I understand each other. Is this trip going to be scary? Yes. Do I like the idea of not knowing the language? Of course not, but I believe we can do this. I love you, Lily. I love you.”

Marshall convinced Lily to take up Captain’s offer to join him on an assignment in Rome for a year. Lily was afraid to tell Marshall, and scared to throw away a perfectly comfortable life in New York. But Marshall convinced her while repeating one Italian sentence he knew. He encouraged her not to say no to her dream job in his love language.

6 But If It’s The Right Person, Then It’s Easy

“Being in a relationship is hard. And committing, making sacrifices it’s hard. But if it’s the right person, it’s easy. Looking at that girl, and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world. And if it’s not like that then she’s not the one.”

Marshall didn’t only know how to put a strong defense, he could also communicate thoughts about love with eloquence. This time Marshall lent a piece of advice to Stuart who almost backed out of his wedding with Claudia. Whilst Ted selfishly tried to assure Stuart about going forward with the wedding, Marshall had something else to say. According to Marshall, if committing to Claudia was such a big deal, Stuart shouldn’t have to do it in the first place.

5 There Are A Million Reasons Why I Love You

“Lily, there are a million reasons why I love you. You make me laugh, you take care of me when I’m sick, you’re sweet, caring and you even created an egg dish and named it after me. She puts a little Italian dressing on the eggs before she cooks them, it’s called Eggs Marshall and it’s awesome. But the main reason is you’re my best friend, Lily. You’re the best friend I’ve ever had.”

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 10 Reasons Why Ted & Lily Aren’t Real Friends

Nothing can beat Marshall’s spontaneous wedding vows made to Lily. Marshall and Lily got married in “Something Borrowed.” Their wedding was almost ruined due to unforeseeable circumstances. There were no flowers, nor a photographer. Marshall shaved his head and Lily’s obsessive ex Scooter was at the wedding. The two decide to get married outdoors. Barney officiates the wedding, Robin and Ted act as ring bearers.

4 Love Does Not Boast

“Love is patient and kind. Love does not envy or boast. It is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way. It is not irritable or resentful. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Weeks prior to their wedding, Marshall and Lily decided to compile a list of horrible wedding clichés that they would keep away from. Barney cited the example of the Bible verse, first Corinthians as a regular wedding feature. Robin wanted to know what the verses were. The most telling moment was when Marshall recalled the verses.

3 Night Night Lily

“Hey Lily, I thought since we’re going to be apart for two whole weeks, I would sing you your night-night song. Night-night, Lily Night-night, Lily It’s time to go to bed, oh, my silly, little Lily Time to rest your little head Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la..”

Before their wedding, Marshall and Lily decided to live apart for two whole weeks. Finding it hard to be apart, Marshall recorded a night-night song for Lily. Marshall wrote the song, Ted appeared behind the camera, recording it. What’s lovable is how Marshall made Ted join in on the chorus.

2 No Questions Asked

“I’ve never asked Lily to do anything ‘No-questions-asked’ because I’ve never wanted to. She’s the love of my life. I never keep anything from her.”

The gang had a No-Questions-Asked rule which meant they asked of favors from each other without having to explain the premise. All five of them were in a No-Questions-Asked agreement with each other. But not Marshall. Turns out he never asked Lily to do anything ‘No-questions-asked’ because he never wanted to. It was there and then Marshall told Lily he’d accepted a judgeship in New York even though the couple had agreed to move to Rome.

1 Love Died

“Love died. The love that made you all believe in love, that’s dead now.”

Marshall utters the devastating words at his law school party. He tells his friends how Lily called off their wedding in the summer to go to San Fransico. His friends immediately jump in with the lawyer-speak. They remind him of the precedents by Smith v. and Rosenblatt, ’74. Furthermore, if Lily’s name wasn’t on Marshall’s lease, he wasn’t obligated to give her half the deposit when he moves.

Marshall tells them that’s not the part he’s worried about. He was mourning his dead love.

How I Met Your Mother: Ted’s Middle Name Explained

Ted Mosby’s middle name, Evelyn, didn’t gain enough attention throughout How I Met Your Mother, leaving many fans wondering the story behind the gag. The character, played by Josh Radnor for all nine seasons of the sitcom, served as the central character as he shared the story about how he ended up meeting the mother of his two children. Over the course of the series, many details about Ted’s life were uncovered, but How I Met Your Mother never fully explained Ted’s middle name, so we drew our own conclusions.

Prior to the events of How I Met Your Mother, Ted attended Wesleyan University, which was where he met his future best friends, Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin. Going back even further, Ted grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, with his parents, Alfred and Virginia, and a sister named Heather. Whereas Heather was more of the rebellious of the two, Ted played everything safe and by the book. Viewers only got brief glimpses into Ted’s early life, but those flashbacks were very telling.

Related: How I Met Your Mother: The Actor Who Almost Played Ted Mosby

The character’s full name, Theodore Evelyn Mosby, was first revealed in the season 2 episode, “How Lily Stole Christmas.” After Ted and Lily get into a fight, the latter took all of the decorations out of the department to ruin the holiday spirit. This action caused Ted to call Lily a “grinch”, which was the PG-substitution to the real name he used. Lily then called Ted’s mother who in turn contacted her son about his bad language while referring to him with his full name. The use of “Evelyn” was referenced a few more times, but the origin behind the name was never given. It was most likely used as a long-running joke.

One of Ted’s closest friends, Barney Stinson, had a history of not letting things go when it pertained to amusing details about those around him. Just like how he constantly made fun of Robin for being Canadian, Barney had a tendency to bring up Ted’s middle name and purposely using Vivian instead of Evelyn. Many viewers thought that Evelyn was a female name, which remains true in today’s culture, but it was once common for both genders. Ted was very old-fashioned in his personality and views on the world, so it was fitting that he had a middle name with an interesting history.

Ted’s middle name of Evelyn also balanced out the fact that Robin’s middle name was Charles. Robin’s full name was explained in a series of flashbacks revealing her father initially thought he was going to have a son. Even after Robin was born, he gave her his namesake and raised her as a boy. These two middle names give both characters more amusing backstories in How I Met Your Mother. Evelyn could also be a nod to Friends character Chandler Bing, whose middle name was Muriel. Chandler explained that it was a family name so maybe that was the case with Ted’s situation.

How I Met Your Mother: Robin’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

Robin Scherbatsky is goofy! She’s done some pretty eccentric things over nine seasons of HIMYM. She grew up in Canada as a teenage pop star, Robin Sparkles. Later, she came to New York to be a journalist. We first see Robin through Ted’s eyes at MacLaren’s, dressed in green, talking to a friend. She instantly befriended Ted’s group of friends.

RELATED: HIMYM: 5 Reasons Robin Should Have Dumped Barney (5 Reasons He Should Have Dumped Her)

Robin’s love life wasn’t a straight path like Lily’s. She went from being best friends with Ted to dating him for a brief. She slept with Barney, dated him, ended things with him, chose Kevin over him. Robin eventually married Barney, divorced him in a controversial ending of the show. Robin grew wiser each time, obviously, there has to be a learning curve with a love-life like that. Here are Robin’s best quotes on love.

10 “Closure Doesn’t Exist”

Robin is a wisecrack. She demonstrated that ability numerous times on the show. She lent pieces of advice to Ted, Barney, Lily, and Marshall. She also handled her breakups with grace.

From “Unfinished,” Robin realizes she may not be over her co-worker and boyfriend Don, after all. She had a bad break up with the guy, he’s settled into his new job in Chicago. Each time Don pops up on Robin’s TV, she drunk dials him and leaves him indelicate voicemails. Lily tries to lecture her into not doing that, but Robin defends her actions by saying: “I am never going to have closure. Okay, closure doesn’t exist.”

9 “You Are Going To Miss Out On Something Great”

The womanizer of the gang, Barney Stinson has come up with a new Law in the episode, “The Duel.” It is called the ‘Lemon Law’. It entitles a person on a date to call it off, without facing any repercussions. So when someone says, “I’m going to Lemon Law you”, that person left within 5 minutes of the date.

Robin Scherbatsky feels the Lemon Law is a symbol of everything that’s wrong with our no-attention-span society. She thinks it takes longer than 5 minutes to know someone. She says “you keep giving up on people so quickly, you could miss out on something great”.

8 “But Timing Is A B***h”

Ted doesn’t feel excessively okay at Punchy’s wedding. All his friends from high school are with their wives or kids. His date for the night is his sticky magazine. He’s soon joined by Robin at the balcony. Ted talks about not believing in destiny anymore.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 5 Times Robin Should Have Dumped Ted (& 5 Times He Should Have Dumped Her)

Every day Ted believes a little less and less. It’s not a pretty picture in his head. He asks Robin for advice.

Robin: “You start believing again.”

Ted: “In what, destiny?”

Robin: “Chemistry. If you have chemistry, you only need one other thing.”

Ted: “What’s that?”

Robin: “Timing. But timing’s a b***h.”

7 Isn’t That Worth Hanging On To?

Even when Ted imagines Robin’s face in every girl, the imagination talks sense. In “Good Crazy,” all of the girls that Ted meets remind him of Robin. At the end of these dates, Robin appears at MacLaren’s, dressed as a bartender and a grandpa. She gives Ted an alternate view of love and guides him into mending their relationship.

“I know our relationship isn’t exactly what you want it to be. And I know I may not love you the way you love me, but I DO love you. Isn’t that worth hanging on to?”

6 “You Stole A Blue French Horn For Me?”

Ted and Robin announced their break up at the end of “Something Blue.” The break-up is ticked by a number of things, starting at the restaurant. Robin accidentally holds a champagne glass with an engagement ring meant for someone else. She freaks out and sounds a lot like Ted is trying to set her on fire, rather propose her. Her reaction leads to an argument between the two. And if that wasn’t enough, the manager of the restaurant realizes Ted indeed was the one who stole the blue french horn.

At the end of their talk, Ted sees himself married in five years and Robin sees herself in Argentina, or Tokyo or Paris. They quickly realize they have to break up.

Robin: “You stole a blue french horn for me?”

Ted tells her he would have stolen her a whole orchestra.

5 “Reacher And A Settler”

Words like these are the reason we think Robin’s the best bro that the gang could have ever had. In “Jenkins,” Robin dishes out on her reacher and settler theory of relationships.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: Lily’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

The premise of “Jenkins” is Lily’s nonchalance upon finding Marshall’s quirky co-worker isn’t a man, but a woman. Robin reminds Marshall why that is. “Every relationship has a reacher and a settler… That’s why Lily is not jealous. The settler is never jealous of the reacher because, where is the reacher gonna go? The settler Lily is the best thing that the reacher Marshall is ever gonna get.”

4 “The Journey Is The Best Part”

Ted says he’s looking forward to growing old in “Murtaugh.” To be honest, Ted’s always been an old soul. The premise of the episode is the Murtaugh list named after a TV icon Detective Roger Murtaugh. The list contains things that Ted is too old to do anymore. So he uses Roger’s catchphrase each time an impossible task comes up – I’m too old for this stuff. The Murtaugh list came into being around the time Ted turned thirty.

The list gets Ted eased about his future. Ted no longer lives in his present. He’s thrilled not worrying about who he is going to marry because he is going to turn old and all that stuff will have happened by then. Robin reminds him of something very important. “That’s pathetic. You can’t just jump to the end. The journey is the best part.”

3 “Okay, I Have Missed You”

Robin is mad at Ted for he’d lied to her about not having a girlfriend. She’s been avoiding him since the night she found out Ted actually had a girlfriend. In “Best Prom Ever,” the five of them crash a high-school prom to go see a band Lily and Marshall want to book for their wedding. The episode gives us the first look at Ted and Robin’s relationship. They dance together at the end. Robin makes the confession:

“Okay, I’ve missed you. Not in a we’re-going-to-make-out way, not even in an l-forgive-you way. Just in an I’ve-missed-you way.”

2 “Is There Any Part Of You That Wants To Try Again?”

Robin considers confessing her feelings to Barney in “The Best Man.” Which she does, only indirectly. The thing is, Nora finally calls back Barney at the wrong time. Barney and Robin have just finished their dance, they realize they have chemistry. Enter: Nora.

Barney seeks Robin’s help in getting back Nora. It’s killing to hear Robin as if she were narrating a script. Truth is, whatever she said, she felt it for Barney. “I know we didn’t work out the first time and I know it doesn’t make any sense but I can’t shake the feeling that we belong together. Is there any part of you that wants to try again?”

1 “It’s A Mistake”

When it comes to having no boundaries, best believe Robin and Barney have no match. As Ted’s going to get back with Zoey, Robin and Barney tackle him down on street. This happens at the end of “Challenge Accepted.” The two convince Ted that it is a bad idea to get back with Zoey. Robin says the following words: “The future is scary, but you can’t just run back to the past because it’s familiar. Yes, it’s tempting”

Barney finishes her by saying, “But it’s a mistake.”

How I Met Your Mother: 5 Reasons Robin Should Have Dumped Barney (5 Reasons He Should Have Dumped Her)

It’s interesting how history repeats itself. In 2003 Friends hit its 10th season and fans became a little contentious when Rachael and Joey got together. Then, fast forward to 2009 and season 5 of How I Met Your Mother saw characters Robin and Barney enter a romantic relationship. The girl next door was dating the comedic ladies man all over again, fans weren’t happy either time, history had repeated itself.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: Barney’s 10 Best Quotes About Love

Arguably, Robin and Barney actually worked better together than Ted and Robin ever did, but that doesn’t mean they were the best TV couple ever. In fact, their relationship had a lot of problems, problems that should have resulted in a definitive breakup way earlier than the show’s final episodes. Let’s list them…

10 Robin – Barney Manipulated Her Into Marrying Him

“The Over-Correction” was a season 8 episode that saw Barney play out an incredibly elaborate play that would set Robin up perfectly for his proposal to her. Forgetting that as soon as he starts dating Robin’s arch-nemesis, Patrice, and acting very out of character, Robin should have known what was up, he’s actually being incredibly manipulative.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 5 Times Lily Should Have Dumped Marshal (& 5 Times He Should Have Dumped Her)

Over the course of the episode, Barney uses all of his knowledge about Robin’s likes and dislikes, what would hurt her and what would motivate her to get her in such a position that when he does pop the question she’ll say nothing but “Yes”. That level of planning and manipulation is next level sociopathy and Robin should have run a mile.

9 Robin – He Didn’t Burn The Playbook

Back again to “The Over-Correction”, during the course of the episode, Barney tries to really sell that he’s committing completely and totally to Patrice by burning The Playbook. For the uninformed, The Playbook is likely one of Barney’s most cherished possessions, used to chronicle all of his sexual conquests.

When Barney finally reveals his hidden agenda to Robin, he confirms that he had indeed burnt The Playbook, but not for Patrice, for Robin.  Except he hadn’t. By season 8 episode 18 – only 8 episodes later – The Playbook makes a grand return. Robin lets it slide when it gets destroyed yet again, but let’s be honest, she really shouldn’t have.

8 Barney – Robin Tries To Run From Their Wedding

In the first episode of season 8, titled “Farhampton”, Ted is called in to talk to a talk Robin out of her wedding day jitters. It turns out that these jitters are less “jitters” and more “the sudden urge to climb out of the window”.

Now, How I Met Your Mother often depicts overreactions in its characters, but this isn’t one. Barney is also shown to be worried about the wedding in later episodes, but his manifest in changing his tie, not jumping out of a window and running for the hills. Barney never finds out about the attempted escape, but it’s likely he’d start to rethink a few things if he did.

7 Robin – Barney Cheated On Nora

In the season 7 episode “Tick Tick Tick” Barney and Robin slept together, potentially rekindling their relationship. The only problem? They had cheated on their respective partners, Kevin and Nora. After a little soul searching the pair agree they want to be together and that they’ll end their current relationships to do that.

This isn’t the first time Barney’s been unfaithful to someone, by the end of the shows run the guy’s slept with over 200 women. Robin should have known then and there, regardless of her involvement that being with Barney was a bad idea. But then again…

6 Barney – Robin Chose Kevin Over Him

Not everyone came out of that sticky situation looking like a saint. While Barney may be un-trustworthy and a creep throughout the shows run, at least he stays true to his word. Following the heart to heart in “Tick Tick Tick” Barney follows through and splits up with Nora.

Unfortunately, Robin doesn’t stay true to what they agreed was best. When Barney runs to meet her at MacLaren’s, in a scene that really makes you feel for him, he walks in on Robin and Kevin sat together, as a couple. Robin looks over to him and slowly shakes her head. He should have known then a there that she wasn’t the woman for him.

5 Robin – Barney Once Sold A Woman

Barney does a lot of reprehensible things over the span of How I Met Your Mother‘s 9 seasons, but the one that might spring up the reddest flags, regardless of Neil Patrick Harris’ charm, is when he admits to having sold a person. In season 3 episode “The Bracket” the gag goes over what women out there might be out for revenge against Barney.

He lists a few, but the most jaw-dropping has to be “At one point I am pretty sure I sold a woman. I didn’t speak the language, but I shook a guys hand, he gave me the keys to a Mercedes and I left her there.” Forget breaking up with him, maybe just avoid a relationship altogether?

4 Barney – Robin Was Blind To His Emotions

While Robin and Barney were initially separated, Robin moves into Ted’s apartment for a while. Arguments over the little quirks of living with a roommate solve themselves in an inevitable way, the two become friends-with-benefits to release the tension.

The episode, aptly named “Benefits”, sees Barney act increasingly stranger in reaction to the news. Turns out that the two having casual sex is driving him insane because he’s still in love with Robin. Every single one of the core group figures out what’s ailing Barney, except Robin. This lack of emotional blindness to someone she’s also supposed to still have feelings for is probably grounds for Barney to move-on all together.

3 Robin –  Barney’s A Creep

Out of the core cast of How I Met Your Mother, it’s likely that none are more quotable – and by the end of the series – more lovable than Barney Stinson. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t done, said, and implied the doing of some pretty creepy actions.

The first thing he says upon seeing Robin is “You just know she likes it dirty” not exactly the most romantic of first lines. Among that he’s sold a woman (as previously mentioned), slept with an uncountable number of others (mostly through lying), and has acted more irresponsible than any other human being on earth.

2 Barney – Robin Still Had Feelings For Ted

The final episode of How I Met Your Mother, titled “The Last Forever – Part Two”, was somewhat of a contentious finale for fans. Due to the two actors that played Ted’s future children having to commit the very human act of aging, their segments of the episode were filmed way back in 2005 with the rest of season 1.

This meant that the conclusion of the show was set in stone years prior before it became obvious that they weren’t right for one another. Regardless, the episode is still the conclusion, and it implies that Robin had always harbored feelings for Ted, especially considering their deal to just marry each other if they were both single at 40. Something Barney should really have questioned.

1 Mutual – They’re Terrible For Each Other

There are a lot of breakups, get-togethers, and re-returns over the course of How I Met Your Mother’s TV tenure, so you’d be forgiven if you’d forgotten that Barney and Robin had a pretty dramatic break-up prior to their eventual divorce. In fact, when they were together initially it was only the span of 7 episodes.

In the season 5 episode “The Rough Patch”, Barney and Robin are shown to have driven each other into pretty bad respective conditions. Barney loses control of his weight, and Robin gets seriously agitated. This episode is proof that they should just mutually split something they do in the final scene.
