Ted And Robin Aren't Soulmates In HIMYM | ScreenRant
Almost a year ago on March 31st, , How I Met Your Mother fans First, let's take a look at Ted and Robin's relationship, starting from the. "Something Blue" is the 22nd and final episode in the second season of the television series With Marshall and Lily's wedding reception in full swing, Ted and Robin begin discussing a big announcement, Barney is again disgusted by this idea, not on the terms of their relationship, but due to concerns of his being lonely. 10 years after How I Met Your Mother premiered, we explore why Ted and Robin ending up together was the only way the show could end.
Perhaps Ted should have looked before he jumped, otherwise things would never have gotten better. Whether he is trying to make it rain or creating a "Symphony of Illumination", he is always willing to do what it takes to express his feelings. However, sometimes when he does so it pushes the boundaries.
Once he has resolved the fact that Robin and Barney are getting married, he makes a big deal that he is "letting Robin go". This means that he is publicly letting his feelings for her go so that she can move on with her life. Ted needs to realize that by this point Robin has already let him go, he just hadn't realized it yet. Robin is already dedicated to her relationship with Barney, and was not thinking about Ted.
A grand gesture was not needed and it was just a waste of time on his part. In fact, he rushes out to help her in order to gain her favor before she marries Barney. Robin is understandably committed to Barney at this point, but Ted tries to sweep in anyways. By the end of the ordeal, it is actually Ted trying to talk her out of giving in to her doubts about Barney.
Ted may be considered a great friend, but he was not looking out for his future at all. In order to help Robin, he left a very important architecture meeting behind. This may be very admirable, but he did it for the wrong reasons. Sometimes his romantic nature does him more harm than good. Unless it is looked at from Ted Mosby's perspective. However, even though it took two "to tango", he only directs his anger at Barney.
Ted is not the least bit upset with Robin and is only upset with Barney.

In fact, he even ceases speaking to Barney and tries to remove him from his life. Considering that Robin was a willing participant in the relationship, it makes little sense that he would place the blame solely on Barney. Isn't Robin just as much to blame for his heartbreak?
While he did eventually get over his issues, it is hypocritical that he let her off the hook so easily. Since both Ted and Robin have failed relationships, they decided to make an agreement together.
They promised each other that if neither of them were married by the time they each turned 40, that they would marry each other. While this is sometimes seen in movies and other shows, there is one big question - does it ever end well?
Through a flashback to the episode Showdown, they explain that they decided to hold off announcing the breakup because of Lily and Marshall's impending wedding.
