Barney Stinson: I Hear That Guy's Awesome

And he seems to just get off on the challenge of it all, like trying to hook up with a young girl as an old man, or trying to pick up lesbians. Sure, there are easier ways to get women, but it wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable.

Barney's objectification of women is about self preservation.

So that leaves the only explanation being that he uses all his crazy characters and backstories to get the adrenaline rush that goes along with them. Plus I'm sure the attention and respect he gets from his friends when he's succeeds (minus Lily, of course) doesn't hurt.

I am planning on testing my Barney game this weekend.
I will take my best buddy out to the city with me and we´ll see if we can score Barney style. I had to buy a suit for my sister´s wedding recently, which I will wear, borrowed one of the expensive Audemars Piguet watches from my dad, got myself a clean haircut and some got pickup lines. I am wondering how well I will do...

Though “Suit up!” has entered the annals of instantly recognizable TV catchphrases, it’s always the perfect two-word command for summoning Barney Stinson’s gusto and conviction. Barney is dapper, hilarious, gleefully hypocritical, a self-vaunted “bro,” and one of the few people whose love of magic tricks doesn’t make us sprint for the door. It helps that Neil Patrick Harris is perhaps the most charismatic sitcom actor of the past decade.

I know somebody further up declared that he didn't use illegal drugs on women, just alcohol. However, I would argue that using alcohol in order to lower someone's defenses just in order to sleep with here, while not illegal is morally reprehensible.
I could buy him being with somebody long-term if he had started where he is now and slowly started to develop a more respectful, less objectifying view of women. As it is, I feel bad for any woman that ends up with him.

It's kind of obvious they still think this last season how they write him is hilarious but a lot of the jokes are downright offensive. An example was how they used to dress him up previously and land women, it used to be silly costumes but him impersonating a cop and forcing someone in bed in such a way, there's a line they shouldn't cross.

Even though he's arguably a sociopath towards most women (excepting Lilly and Robin), so far, we haven't seen him do much worse
In "The Bracket" he says that he once sold a woman. And he said it when apologizing to that blonde woman and not to impress anyone, so I'm guessing it's true.
The police and judge "joke" went way over the line for me as well. That's pretty much coercion.
It's definitely gotten to the point where I don't want him to marry anyone, especially Robin. I was okay with Quinn because she played him as badly as he played her.
