Ted Mosby was always a great character to me.
He was so much of what we should all be in the world and still have plenty of flaws.Despite all the inanities, the trivialities, and the twists and turns of writers that have, by most accounts, taken a show beyond it’s natural life-span, Ted Mosby’s story remains an engaging one. He’s a man who’s looking for love in a world that seems almost wantonly set against him at times.
As the audience, like his poor, much maligned children, we know that there’s a happy ending, but Ted, in his story-bound world, does not. Those of us who live in an infinitely more complicated world, with more obstacles and no guarantees of living happily ever after, have to struggle through without that certainty. Ted Mosby and characters like him can give us a little hope that something, maybe something magical, is waiting out there for us. I think that’s worth something and what’s more, something worth waiting for.
In its own microscopic way, seeing this smiling face was one of those gentle, small reminders that good things are out in the universe.

These are some of the things that I think about every day. I like these things.
You can never know anyone as completely as you want. But that’s okay, love is better.
