Karen and Ted in College

While dating Ted in college, Karen cheated on him with her Philosophy professor.

Both Marshall and Lily hated Karen in the past because of her incredible pretentiousness and her tendency to bring it out in Ted. Lily admitted that she particularly hated Karen because she "lingered" her gaze on a nude Marshall when she walked in on Lily doing a nude portrait of him. They also hated her because she frequently cheated on Ted.

In 2009, Karen and Ted started dating again, even cheating on her boyfriend at that time with Ted, until she finds Robin's earring in Ted's bed. Later Ted discovers that Lily was responsible and has been meddling with his relationships for years. She and Ted reconcile after Lily confesses the truth to Karen. When Karen expects Ted to never see Lily again, however, he breaks up with her for good, deciding that while it doesn't matter what his friends think of his girlfriend, it does matter what his girlfriend thinks of his friends.
