I also think there is a bit of the age of the cast that I can relate too. I'm approximately the same age as the characters and went through life a bit like they did. Finding my way and love with my friends.
That makes sense. I'm 29 now and was in my early/mid-teens when Friends
was at its peak, so that could be one reason I relate to HIMYM more.
I think that's my situation, too. I was a teenager when Friends was on the air. It's series finale aired my freshman year of college. The characters in HIMYM are right around my age and are dealing with issues that I can relate to a lot better.
