  1. I agree with this so much and I think it is a point that is missed by many. I think the times where Amy had complained about the lack of physical intimacy in their relationship made people think she was a lot more sex crazy than she actually was. I think a lot of it had to do with having the experience and of course falling in love with Sheldon. But, I think people are equating her sex drive with what is considered "normal" when it's probably more likely that she is closer to Sheldon's that some people would like to admit. I just think it is hard for people to wrap their mind people that have lower sex drives.
  2. I don't think it was intended to be a joint couples trip, so which couples are more alike doesn't matter here. Not to mention that being more alike doesn't automatically make them closer friends. Penny picked someone to go with her instead of Leonard. Bernie has a newborn at home. And whether some here like it or not, Penny and Amy are very close. I think it makes sense that Amy went with her.
  3. Why would it have been better with Bernie?
  4. I wouldn't have a RA in my relationship, but I think, at least for a little while, it worked for Shamy. Whether or not it will work for Lenny will depend on a lot of things. What kinds of things are in this RA? How strict is it? Maybe it's just more of an outline for structure. Who knows? We'll have to see how they play this out.
  5. Maybe that will happen. I'm just not really sure what that has to do with what I was saying.
  6. I don't have any blinders on. Yes, there is a lot of focus on Sheldon. But that doesn't mean that TPTB are trying to turn Lenny into Shamy. Just because people use a similar technique does not mean that they will employee said technique in the same way or that they will have the same result. Shamy and Lenny are fundamently different people/couples. RA or not, Lenny will never work like Shamy and Shamy will never work like Lenny. And, it looks like this was Lenny's suggestion and Sheldon didn't offer up any advice to fix their relationship (unless you want to count Sheldon being snarky to Leonard). Sheldon didn't fix shit. Sheldon just helped them do something that they asked of him. I don't think I'm the one with blinders one.
  7. I was responding to a comment that someone refuses to watch Lenny turn into Shamy 2.0. My point is that there was nothing in the TR to suggest that was the case and the person who went to the tape also said that wasn't the case. I'm not trying to convince anyone that this will be a good storyline for Lenny or that them having a relationship agreement will be good for them.
  8. And that's fair. And Sheldon and Amy's crazy contract worked for them because it spoke to their specific brand of crazy. There is no reason to believe the same things will be in Lenny's agreement.
  9. That may be so. However, that is no way means they are trying to turn Lenny into Shamy. All that means is they decided to use a technique that Sheldon has used in the past and see if it will work for them.
  10. She says in her post that they aren't trying to be like Shamy or that the goal is to turn them into Shamy. And I didn't see anything in the original TR to suggest that was the case, either. Just that they asked Sheldon to help them write up a relationship agreement. No one said that agreement mirrored Shamy's and wasn't based on who Lenny are as a couple. Looks to me like they want to get back to what Lenny are all about.
  11. I disagree here. I think it was a really crappy thing to say and I am sure hurtful for Sheldon to hear from his mother of all people. There is a difference between Mary maybe saying that she didn't think he would ever come around to wanting to be in a relationship and saying that because of the personality and the traits he displayed at the ripe old age of 3 that she pretty much came to the conclusion that no woman would want to be with him. It's also one thing to go through life making the "choice" to remain single and focus on other things and another to have you mother, again, believe that no one would find you worthy to be in a relationship with should you choose to do so. I don't believe there was any intended malice on Mary's part in feeling the way that she felt. But that doesn't mean that Sheldon doesn't have every right to be offended and/or hurt by all.
  12. But that story was about Leonard and Sheldon. That's the issue with counting screen time. Yes Shamy might have been in scenes together, but it wasn't about them. Not even a little bit.
  13. Why should they ask her? Amy had no personal stake in 4A. She can support Sheldon if he decides that's, where he wants to live and she is on board. But as far as Lenny are concerned, they owe Amy nothing in regards to that apartment .
  14. To be fair, he discussed with her options about where they would live together, then had his freak out. However, at no point it is shown that Sheldon made the decision to live in 4B without Amy's input. Hell, we are still not 100% sure that's where they are gonna stay because we haven't been told. Odd to be upset about a scenario that we don't know happened. So far this has been portrayed as a joint venture for the 2 of them. Jumping to the logic that she suddenly had no say in the matter is rather odd.
  15. I think everyone, at the end of the day, is responsible for the changes they make in life. The progression that Sheldon has made over the years is because, no matter long it might have taken him, he choose to take the steps to improve upon what he believed he needed to improve on. Amy and the rest could be the best people in the world, but if Sheldon doesn't allow their influences, it means nothing. Also, Amy is more than just Sheldon's savior. It should not be hers or anyone else's on the shows burden to make Sheldon better. I think there are some who think of Amy as more than just Sheldon's girlfriend and think she has a worth as a character all her own. But what I think @serena_1995's main point is that it is rather insulting to characterize Sheldon has someone who was half a man, just because he didn't approach life and relationships the way others have. Now, that doesn't mean he doesn't have deeper issues that may make him feel that way. But sometimes it is presented on the show that the basics, the surface, of who Sheldon is needed for him to change so he can be a "real boy". He was always a real boy, a real person with perfectly valid methods in the way he lived his life. He shouldn't be better now because he has a girlfriend, is in love, and had sex. He should be in a good place (and/or be better) because he found something that makes him happy that just so happens to be his girlfriend, who he is in love with and had sex with.
  16. I completely agree with all of this. However, there does seem to be this idea that it is OOC, or even something wrong, for Sheldon to act as he has in the last 4 episodes or so. I disagree with this. There is nothing OOC or wrong about it. Sheldon is just happy and enjoying this part of his life, and as he does with everything, he's gone all in. Once Sheldon gets there, he's setting up camp and getting comfortable. It's happened with the idea of having a girlfriend, or handing hands, hugging and kissing. Why should this be surprising to people? My main want for Sheldon and Amy is that they are happy in whatever path they choose. If they decided that they would just be besties for the rest of their life and are happy with that, great. If they decided to be life partners, yet without a sexual relationship, awesome. If they decided to leave themselves open to a sexual relationship, allow it to develop and then decide they wanna go all in with it, fantastic. All the cute little scenes in the episodes we've seem or have info for are great. But the best part of them is that they are happy, and that's all that matters to me. @Tensor I agree that the second half didn't do much to foreshadow where Shamy are right now, but it didn't do much of anything, even negate what is happening right now. It stayed unbelievably static. Chatting with people like wowbagger and such, we've come to feel that what is happening now really should have been the follow up to Opening Night. I think it kinda goes for the show as a whole. You can pretty much, save a scene or maybe an episode, do without the second half narrative of season 9. But I think before that, the signs of progression in their relationship were there (which made the breakup a bit jolting). And I can see how living together can expedite a lot of this stuff as well. So to me the story line itself isn't a tough sell, but the management of it (particularly the timing) is.
  17. Maybe so, because that is the only way that comment works.
  18. No, Leonard and Sheldon were there first. Penny was added during the second try. And even if you wanna start from there, Sheldon was there in the beginning right with Leonard and Penny. And honestly, in the beginning the show was mostly focus on Leonard and Sheldon, then Penny, then Howard and Raj.
  19. Never had sourdough bread from Germany so I don't know what the difference is, but I freaking love sourdough bread and buy it often without going to some artisan bakery. not sure what the popularity of bread Germany has to do with the fact that Sheldon didn't need to get a non terrible recipe from Germany to make good sourdough bread. But hey, it's your headcanon.
  20. Just an FYI, sourdough bread is very common here in the US. No need for him to travel to Germany to learn about it or pick up a recipe. It is sold on the same aisle next to regular sliced bread. Sorry to be a buzzkill.
  21. This all started with Nograv when someone said that kissing wasn't cheating and I responded that some believe that it is. Then he responded and somehow ended up talking about Sheldon. Spin all you want. But this had nothing to do with Sheldon at all. Nograv decided to throw him into the conversation, basically because he doesn't like him and wanted to make that point. Again, whether or not one likes Sheldon or whether or not he is an asshole had absolutely nothing to do with whether or not some people consider a kiss cheating and some do not. The extension of that conversation as to whether or not Penny thought it was cheating and if she forgave him, again, has nothing to do with Sheldon.
  22. Not really. People often develop OCD behaviors because doing a certain task helps ease their mind or makes them feel safe. Sheldon may have started the knocking because of the encounter with his dad and his lover, but the could have become obsessive on his want to avoid something like that from happening again. The knocking then becomes an OCD behavior in a way to help manage the fear or anxiety . OCD is not a black and white condition. It has many different forms and is brought about in many different ways.
  23. That's fine. No one says you have to like him. just trying to figure out what it has to do with the topic at hand. I'm pretty sure the answer is "nothing".
  24. Ummm, what? Sheldon is still very much an atheist. The joke was that he was going to pray because he wanted the tickets that bad, in hopes maybe it would work. but they got them before he even finished and declared he would continue to deny the lord's existence .
  25. And that's all well and good, but correct me if I'm wrong, but she considered it a form of cheating did she not? I didn't make a statement on whether or not she forgave him out of she should or shouldn't. I responded to the comment that the kiss wasn't cheating. Her forgiveness doesn't mean she didn't feel like he cheated or it wasn't a big deal. It just means that she was able to move on from it.
