Robin and Barney- good or bad pair?

I really just have toask as my curiosity is just killing me. Am I the only one that doesn't like the whole Barney/Robin pairing? I mean maybe it's only because I've just never really liked Robin to begin with, but there's just something about the pairing that I'm nnot particularily fond of.


I mean they're okay, but I wouldn't exactly call it my idea of a match made in heaven as far as the two are concerned, am I the only one that holds this aversion to the idea of the two of them together?

i dont think they end up together anywayi remember seeing drawings by ted's kids, & when "auntie robin" was drawn, there was no uncle barney. & usually, kids would draw them togetherbut who knows... i dont like them as a couple though

I wouldn't completely discount the possibility based on the drawings, I don't think the show is that thought out in advance, or with that much attention to detail.
I don't know how i feel about the whole Robin/Barney thing, i think it would be interesting if he liked her and she didn't want anything to do with him, see if he changes his ways for her.

If you rewatch the older seasons, Robin and Barney always had a strange connection, and there are plenty of moments between the two of them that can indicate good chemistry. Although a non-single Barney may hurt the show overall, I am somewhat convinced that Barney and Robin end up together.

look at the start of each episode they show u lilly and marshall 2gether, ted alone and robyn and barney 2gether.... maybe it's me or this is a hunch, but i think they will end up 2gether! And to talk about what JME said sometimes the kids don't put the uncle in the pics if they don't spend much time with him... they could spend more time with robyn then uncle barney, i mean let's face it barney's not the kid type lol!

everyone hooks up eventually in a sitcom depending on how long the show lasts and how starved for new plotlines the writers are... they may not end up together but im sure they will get together at some point if only for for a while

my guess is Barney will stay single for now, maybe him an Robin will hook up for a couple of episodes and break up again, but it will not be before the end of the final season that they get together. But then they will, i would bet on it ;)

I agree that they shouldn't end up together, but the writers should keep using the tension between them....

She suited up for him. Go back and watch the episodes this has been coming for a loooooooooooong time. I think the show has come damn close to jumping the shark and before getting canceled the writers are trying to get the few set character arcs done. The show is now more like a duty date, watching just to see how it ends kinda like LOST.Its just sad how much the writer's strike has hurt every show. Almost every show I was excited to see return has really been real let downs, not outright terrible but it seems like the magic has gone.

I agree,
they don't make a good pair at all. But if you remember the episode where Ted throws up on robin's door mat and at the end she is standing there looking at a new mat, i think Barney gave it to her .. they will end up together ...

I think that thre should be some progress in their relationship and yes it would be quite fun if they end up as a couple. Worst case scenario is if the writers just keep using the tension and nothing happends. That would be just sooo anoying. But I miss Robin in a relationship she gets well funny she is such a weirdo and when combined with Barney I think the possibilities for good entartainment would be a lot.
