Hello, and welcome to Barney and Robin: A HIMYM Romance. If you are unfamiliar with the show How I Met Your Mother on CBS, we'll catch you up. How I Met Your Mother, or HIMYM for short, is narrated by Ted Moseby (Josh Radnor and Bob Saget as the voice of future Ted) in 2030, who tells his children the looooooong story of how he met their mother, his wife, in a series of flashbacks set in today's time. Ted has been friends with Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segal) since college, and since their engagement, Ted realizes that what he would like most, is to start a family. Unfortunately for Ted, his friend, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), doesn't have that in mind. Barney is a player, sleeping around from woman to woman, and would like Ted to join in on the fun. On Ted's hunt for his soul mate, he sees Robin (Cobie Smulders), and it is love at first sight. Now, we know what you are thinking. Ted and Robin? I thought this was about Barney and Robin! Now it's time for the extremely fast catch-up: Ted likes Robin; Robin doesn't like Ted; Ted dates someone else; Robin now likes Ted; Ted and Robin get together; Ted and Robin are happy, then split up; Robin and Ted are now both single. Whew! Now here's where our blog comes in. In Season One, during Robin's crush on Ted, Robin and Barney go on a "boys night out" and find that, surprisingly they get along very well. Barney misinterprets this and thinks that he and Robin will...you know... Unfortunately, this doesn't happen. However, their chemistry is too apparent to pass up. This blog is dedicated to the inevitable romance that is slowly blooming between Robin and Barney. So stick with us and we hopefully have an legion of Barney and Robin fans. Thank you.
