Our story’s hopeless romantic is a 27-year-old aspiring architect trying to find love in New York City.
After Lily and Marshall, his roommates and best friends from college, get engaged, Ted becomes determined to find his soulmate.
) HIMYM revolves around a series-long mystery, constant use of flashback and flashforwards, a comprehensive mythology, polarizing seasons towards the end of its run, and even time travel.
