Marshall and Lily are excited that Robin and Barney are dating as they now have friends who are a couple with who they can double date.Marshall and Lily don't have such friends because, unknown to them, they, to use Ted's vernacular, suck at being couples friends since they are so intense about making it a good time.Barney and Robin have no idea into what they are entering when they accept Marshall and Lily's invitation to spend a couples night at their place.After what they consider the worst night of their lives on that couples night, Robin and Barney don't have the heart to tell Marshall and Lily.“While you are waiting on your Boaz, be sure not to settle for any of his relatives; Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheating-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az, Cheap-az, Locked UP-az, and especially his cousin, Beatingyo-az. If I represent the Good Girl Team, then where are all the good men ready to get to know a sista? ‘Cause I already know my girls and me are the bomb…What’s up with the dudes? Talk about you on a text message about how you are feeling him hard. This fool accidentally sent it to me instead of his brother….. Yep, he told me we weren’t on the same page and I dismissed him and told him that we weren’t even in the same book.Wait on the man God is sending to you and make sure he respects Yoaz! So here are some Non- Player-Rific things that men should not do during the get to know you phase. They all got booted real quick…then they had the nerve to wonder why. Accidentally text you to invite you to lunch when it was meant to go to someone else…. Again, he outta not been so arrogant, because he didn’t have me yet. Guess who showed up to my office….multiple times…kinds scary! Be married and trying to get a prepaid phone just so they can talk to you. He told me he was divorced, but didn’t know I knew a mutual friend who put me on game. Ask you to sleep over at your house, but on your sofa.

It’s something I’ve struggled with, over the last eight months, this tension between my seemingly instinctual and certainly genuine desire to find love and companionship, and the expectation imposed by people like Sarah that I, at this point in my life, should be focused solely on myself and on having fun — which, of course, means having commitment-less sex as often as possible.
