Ted Mosby from ‘How I Met Your Mother’, is a natural antidote to any dating disaster I’ve ever experienced in my life. I mean, after watching the series, the character stuck to me so hard, it was just difficult to live my life without finding a Ted Mosby to be a part of it. And why not? He’s just the perfect friend/lover/boyfriend material all rolled into one, that really helps me negate all my dating history, put together!
Honestly, it’s just getting from bad to worse out there. The last date I had with a guy, he’d invited me to his apartment to have wine with him because it was going to expire. I mean, seriously? Are you not even going to try anymore?
I need a Ted Mosby in my life because he will balance out all the bad karma I’ve accumulated by going on bad dates most times and also because he’s THE MAN. You know, kind, compassionate, funny and loves watching robots and wrestlers fight each other! Everyone needs a Ted in their life. Men women alike. But women more so and subjectively so.
Everyone has a different reason for why they need him but here are 5 prominent and relatable reasons as to why women need a Teddie Westside and if you can relate to being the Ted Mosby in your girl’s life, then read on:
1. He Is Very Accepting Of Other’s Faults
He’s always accepting of the faults of others, especially his lady love’s over the years. They can leave him at the altar, or reject him or even go completely neurotic on him, he will still forgive them or accept them as they are.
2. He’s Big On Romance
If you really want to be the Ted in someone’s life, you need to up your romance game a bit. Remember the time Ted stole a blue French horn for Robin from a restaurant? Or how he tracked down Victoria, even though she didn’t leave him with an address to find her? Girls dig that kinda stuff. The unpredictable romantic sorts.
3. He’s A Great Friend To Have Around
Ted has an exceptionally great knack for maintaining friendships and he always puts his friends first. Be it Lily, Barney, Marshall or even Robin, he lives by ‘bro’s before ho**’, for life and he’d give up just about anything or anyone for his friends.
4. He Takes His Chances
By far, Ted is the biggest risk taker I’ve seen in a character and the kinda risks he takes with women, lands him in a lot of trouble at times. Like when he said ‘I love you’ to Robin on their first date, or when he’d just dress up in the same costume every year on Halloween to find his ‘slutty’ pumpkin.
5. He Never Gives Up
Very hardly you’ll see instances where Ted actually gave up. Like when he had to break-up with Zoey or when he gave up Robin for Barney. But if there is anything he sets his eyes or his mind on, he will never give up on it. So, it’s always a bonus to be a Ted Mosby in someone’s life and if you think you have all these qualities, then you’re already good to go, mate!
