People like to relate themselves to characters on TV shows. Multiple friends have done this to characters from How I Met Your Mother. One good friend considered herself Robin and her ex to be Ted Mosby. She used to say that B and I are like Marshall and Lily. Another close friend and her husband consider themselves to be Lily and Marshall. We can't all be Ted and Robin and Lily and Marshall. But I do it too. I've questioned if I'm even Ted Mosby. It seems like a testament to a good show that people can relate so much.
