Hello!   Just wanted to come say hi, i'm still new to the forum.    I wanted to thank all the shamys for being so patient with me last night. Last night was big! I'm going to try to write more BTS

I'm still reeling, I cannot think straight today. Man, I can't believe how perfect this whole milestone was, and I can't believe how consistently good the writers are at knocking *every single milesto

THE FACE THE FACE THE FAAAAACCCCCEEEE

The stories about Sheldon's "childishness" are not only creepy but also a direct contradiction to his character who would typically be ultra-rational, anti-touch, and intellectual rather than emotional. And I don't like them either!

I agree with you Phanta. The emotionless robot stuff is just a defense mechanism. I honestly believe he is the most emotion of the 7 and is not even really a close contest.

I'm not always a fan of babying Sheldon and I think that Leonard and Penny coddle him at times. However, I definitely understand why Sheldon is the way he is. He will, and has, continue to grow but some of that will always be a part of him. It's who he is.

A lot of mothers consider their children (sons specially) as their babies although they are adults, with their own families.

But I can´t accept a young couple like Lenny still consider a grown up man, smart , with 187 IQ and older than them, like "their toddler" and treat him like a silly little child! 

They must read Mayim´s book about raising children!

I think it's pretty close between him and Raj actually, as to who is the most emotional. Raj just shows it more. I said in a review recently that the relationship between Raj and Sheldon (being left to fend off rats aside!) can be quite 'gentle' with each other and that can come as quite a surprise considering they aren't one another's respective 'besties', and think it's because Raj understands all very well the emotions that are going on underneath.

Absolutely agree that the 'emotionless robot' thing is a defence mechanism, and probably the actions of a little boy trying to please his daddy. Bearing in mind that in some ways Sheldon was pushed into the adult world before he was really ready, it's not surprising that he clings to childhood sometimes. Then there's the emotional deprivation that Leonard had growing up, which maybe makes him want to look after his 'little buddy' the way he would have wanted to be.

Personally, I think Sheldon is a little childish. BUT, that's okay. It only shows how much more he grows and matures, especially for those he loves, esp Amy (more to come on that front). I think that Sheldon's robot like countenance and behavior is what he does to get attention. Kids, Teenagers, and sometimes adults act weird in order to get attention and recognition from other people. That's okay too, but I would like to see him move more away from that (which he has) and into being more adult.

 

Last night, I was watching the episode where Sheldon takes Raj on Amy and he's date. (Forgot what its called). It hurt me  (just a little) when he said, "Amy I need you!.... Yes, your my ride". That kinda sucked. Then I watched Prom - how much he'd changed over the years and how, instead of thinking more from his perspective, he was trying to please Amy for once. 

 

Just my take on things.

 

Happy Birthday, SHAMY <3! Hope you get lots and lots of BBT merch!  :icon_biggrin:

It wasn't long ago that he was willing to break up with her because he realized she was changing him. He still has a lot of growing to do but has definitely come very far. 

I see season 6 as Sheldon fighting his growing feelings for Amy. He never wanted a relationship or all those "hippy dippy" feelings. So when he found himself falling for her even more, it pissed him off and he took it out on her. And don't forget that spider man speech at the beginning of the season. I really think there was some truth in those words.

So by the end of the season, during the D & D episode, he realized he needed to assure her that for him, what they had was real. By then, I think he had already come to terms with his feelings for her but he wasn't ready to tell her. I think for him, telling her he loved her = sex and and he wasn't ready for that. But during season 7, it sure the hell was on his mind a lot, wasn't it?

That's why I think her taking the pressure of sex off his shoulders, he no longer worried about telling her he loved her.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing s6, I was simply comparing two moments that really show how Shelly has grown… and how much I loved prom.
