BipolarBear Posted March 7, 2014 Posted March 7, 2014 That is the problem. I didn't find any humor in their story. I find Raj/Amy have ZERO chemistry and only bring out the "pathetic" in each other. I really dislike watching that. Amy is not pathetic. She does have a man that loves her, and while he may be slow at showing it, he does in his own ways show her that she is important to him. Likewise she has a successful career and is happy with her friendships. Yet Raj constantly drags her down by trying to remind her of what she doesn't have. That is not a good friend. Likewise he was upset with her for "ruining" his chances with Emily (which were pretty non-existent from the get-go) and never thought about how she was trying to help him. I just find that their story did not work and it appears from what I am reading around the net, that others do agree. Raj/Amy remind me of toxic relationships. Raj brings Amy down and he is already down on his own. He wants her to commiserate with him and thus has to bring her down. A good friend would lift her up, which is what she is trying to do with him, but he just continually reminds her of how little affection she is getting from her boyfriend. That isn't very healthy. While I get that the writers were bringing the "dating match sites" full circle (how Raj introduced Sheldon to Amy and now she was introducing him to someone), it just didn't work well. Why can't they just let Raj decide that perhaps he needs to find peace within himself that being single is an okay thing and there is nothing wrong with it and embrace it. Why keep him pathetic all the time. It drags the show down. This story really robbed time from the other stories and the pacing was off. It was very off and rushed in important places and dragged in this story. You hit the nail right in the head with this, there are so many ways Raj could be a fun character just being single and accepting who he is. Why being single immediately equals pathetic loser; first of all it's not true and second of all, it's only funny for so long before it starts to become a real downer. I think Rajesh has so many good qualities, I don't like how pathetic he has become. He is young, handsome, smart, has a great job I mean come on. Why doesn't he plan a party in his apartment and invites people from the university, a big party at Raj's would be fun and create funny situations for all the rest of the group.
