I like the show but the drawn out attraction between Ted and Robin is getting old. He refers to her as "Aunt Robin" to the kids so we know he doesn't end up marrying her. He better fall totally in love with the "mother" (if we ever get to see her) or else I'll feel like he settled instead of having his true love Robin, which would just cheapen his marriage. I'm guessing Victoria isn't here for the long haul. I doubt we'll meet the mother for a few seasons at least. I know, I'm putting way too much thought into this
And why is he telling his kids all this anyway? Maybe he's leading up to a "I'm divorcing your mother and running off with Aunt Robin". Now THAT would be something!
