13 Celebrity Couples Where He’s Reaching and She’s Settling [Dude’s List]


In honor of the 8th season premiere for the sit-com that proved you could still have a successful sit-com on network television, “How I Met Your Mother,” I wanted to do a Dude’s List based on one of the greatest concepts the show has put forth. In every relationship, one person is the reacher, one who is dating above their level of attractiveness, and one person is the settler…which is a bit more self-explanatory.

In light of this milestone achievement to the show’s many other fantastic additions to our cultural landscape (“legendary,” “suit up,” John Lithgow as your father, crazy vs. hot scale, the bro code [available on all major online shopping outlets], Barney Stinson, the Naked Man, and Cobie Smoulders) here’s a Dude’s List of a 13 celebrity couples where he’s reaching and she’s settling…

And there you have it, ladies. 13 men who’ve successfully reached and 11 women who have settled for them for one reason or another. Did I miss any? Who could you think of? Maybe next time we’ll examine this from the other side of the tracks…

Suiting up!
