How I Met Your Mother is a sitcom which showed us the hardships one faces during ‘Adulthood’. This show is about five friends who try to stay together while handling their professional and personal life. The protagonist, Ted Mosby, narrates to his children about his unrealistic dreams of finding his soulmate and in the process, falls in love with Robin Scherbatsky.
Cobie Smulders who played the character of Robin Scherbatsky became an integral part of the show and our lives by being the fierce and modern woman she portrayed in the show.
So, here we are giving you 10 reasons why we are heads over heels in love with Robin Scherbatsky
1. She is an independent woman
She was on her own and surely, did not need a man to pay the bills. She showed us the real meaning of ‘being a women before being anyone’s daughter, wife or mother’.
2. She has zero tolerance for kids
She runs away from kids even when they are in the womb and surely, does not want to deal with them or handle the crying lot.
3. A glass of wine is all it takes
Be it a hectic day or a very emotional one, all she had to do was kick her shoes, grab a bottle of wine and celebrate with her love – dogs.
4. Her first love is food and only food
Remember the time when Robin couldn’t eat a burger because they were not able to find the joint where Marshall ate the best burger of New York? How irritated she was when she couldn’t have her food in peace and how she felt when the burger finally reached her mouth. Just the way she looks at food; doesn’t it explain our relation with food? Can’t we relate?
5. She is basically the walking and living definition of ‘Sarcasm’
Robin Scherbatsky comes up with the wittiest and smartest comebacks. She can brilliantly shut up anyone with her sarcastic replies. As she said, ‘You can either be yourself or be nice’.
6. How she hates to talk about the past silly mistakes
Remember the Canadian pop star ‘Robin Sparkles’? ‘Let’s go to the mall’ and how can we forget ‘Sandcastles by the sand’. She is embarrassed when Barney finds the video tape and shows it to the gang revealing her teenage years as a pop star.
7. Sensible in every way
Full of optimism, Robin is a person who would prefer to look at a situation in a practical way than to be emotional over it.
8. Boss Babe
We envy how she can smoke cigars and shoot guns better than any man out there. Her taste for an old scotch which is old enough to order its own scotch is something we all should admire. And aren’t we in love with her just because she doesn’t sit and cry or crib – be it over a breakup or be it rejections.
9. She is straightforward.
No bullshit, No lies. Just plain truth on your face. She doesn’t need to be given false praises nor does she herself reciprocate anyone else with fake lies. If I don’t like you, then I don’t. It’s that simple.
10. At the end, she is a strong and a sexy woman
Be it physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. And she is awesome and she knows it.
