Buzz In: Is HIMYM Giving Up on Barney and Robin Too Easily?

How I Met Your Mother, why must you toy with my emotions?! After just seven episodes of dating seriously, Barney and Robin are broken up and tonight Barney will be back to his old ways of lovin' and leavin'. What's more annoying is that their time together hasn't been crazy in love, and their break up is such a depressing way to end any TV relationship: with Barney gaining weight and Robin letting herself go. As the audience, you wanted them to break up, and I don't think that's fair.

When I asked you guys if you thought Barney and Robin would make it as a real couple, many of you expressed fear that the writers would break them up after a short time, so it's not like we all didn't see this one coming. Still, we went through a whole season of Barney pining over Robin, and tonight we're already back to them being single again. I didn't expect these two to have the easiest route, but I just wish they'd given them a fair shake. What do you think? Do you think they'll be back together by the end of the season?

I think the writers and producers have realized how much audience viewers like Barney (or NPH)....and now the show is all about him - smart for them, bad for the rest of the cast, who seem to be background characters. I wish it would go back to being about Ted!

I think they kinda had to make the audience want them to break up - or they would have had more angry fans. So, we wanted them to break up for NOW, but I think they will ultimately be together in the end... Aunt Robin and Uncle Barney to Ted's kids. And this way there can be more tension. Hopefully it works out between them in the end!

single Barney is much more entertaining

It did seem kind of early in the season to break them up, but like others have said the show was getting a little boring this year. I missed old Barney. I want them to be together, but at the end like Ross and Rachel.

I was kind of bored of the relationship. It hasn't been funny lately. I don't think they're that compatible, it just seems like everyone on the show is paired up-Lily/Marshall, Ted/the future mom, and who's Robin and Barney left with? Each other. So they make the two characters like each other. And I still want Ted and Robin-even if that's never going to happen lol. barney seems like the eternal playboy lol. I want to know who the mother is!! Can it be someone we've seen before; I don't think I could handle a 2 episode arc where Ted falls madly in love and marries her lol.

I was not a fan at all of last week's episode. I think they just needed to write in a silly story line (Barney's gets fat, Robin lets herself go) in order to break them up. So they will then realize at some point in the future that they really are perfect for each other. I do like Robin and Barney together but I wouldn't be upset if they don't end up together.

I think they will end up back together- it may not be this season but I think they will end up together. They are the perfect match!

I think that they will get together again, eventually. But, despite being a rabid Barney/Robin fangirl, I was actually okay with the break up. The relationship hasn't felt like the Barney and Robin I wanted to get together, they were trying too hard, and losing themselves in the mix... and just before the break up, it felt like two completely different characters than teh ones I like.

This ep. was one of the best so far in the season. Like people have said: it's been flat. It seems like they're trying too hard the for the generic/cheesy laugh (a-la 2 1/2 men). It used to have a lot more character. Hope it gets better and back to its funny self.

Not sure how I felt about the break-up. Not sure if I think they will end up together. But the show has been a little flat, so perhaps this will liven things up!

Yeah, I think they'll end up together in the end, but I'm actually glad that they split up for now. I think the show's better when they're not a couple.
