1. The main character on HIMYM. While Ted is sweet, awesome, and romantic, he can also be rather douchey (and that's douchey, not douché) as a reflection of his personality in college. His main goal during his late 20s and early 30s is to find a wife, and he pursues many ill-fated relationships to fulfill this goal.
2. A man whose life is way too focussed on getting married and having children.

Everybody else: Dude! Don't be such a Ted Mosby. Besides, you are a guy, you don't have a biological clock.
