Intro Sample...


It’s funny to see how people react when I tell them that the show How I Met Your Mother changed my life, and I wish I could see the look on your face after reading that. But while it may sound weird, or even a little childish, it’s 100% true that How I Met Your Mother gave me the confidence I have today in regard to the social aspect of my life.

Now most guys will say that their dad laid a few jokes or two on them when they got to high school about getting a girlfriend, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

Of course, I wasn’t paying attention though, no sir, I was already planning how on Earth I was going to meet this girl. But every time I wanted to ask her name, or introduce myself, I turned into that chubby 6th grader I used to be. Scarred, nervous ...
