There are plenty of great “How I Met Your Mother” concepts. Every so often, the writers come up with ideas that connect with their fans. Sometimes the concepts are funny and sometimes they’re lessons or names for things that we go through. If I named all of them, this list could go on for a while, but let’s take a look at seven “How I Met Your Mother” concepts.
1. The Olive Theory
This is my favorite “How I Met Your Mother” concept hands down. It’s a really sweet idea. The Olive Theory is based on Lily and Marshall’s relationship. The theory is that if one person likes olives and the other person in the relationship doesn’t, then they have perfect balance and are meant to be together. This might sound a little weird, but I think it really makes sense and that the olives are just a metaphor for opposites attract. I love this concept!
