Can Raj find love on 'The Big Bang Theory'?

Poor Raj, he seems doomed to live a dateless existence, a fact which was made even more clear on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory."

For one brief, shining moment, he seemed to hit it off with a friend of Penny's, a deaf girl, who sadly was only in it for his money.

That's right, the Koothrappalis are "halfway between Bruce Wayne and Scrooge McDuck," according to Howard. Who knew?

It was great to see Howard as sort of the Cyrano de Bergerac here, using sign language to communicate what Raj was saying to his date. However, his wandering eye and Raj's dating issues still seem to be pointing to some kind of future plot development around Bernadette. We shall see.

Even so, any guy who can say that a woman's "eyes shimmer like opalescent lilies in the lake of the palace of the celestial maidens" can surely find a date, eventually. Though as we know, Raj has multiple problems in that area.

Sheldon's roll of the role-playing die to determine his face was a fun little distraction (especially seeing him with a mustache – the die determines all!).

Both relationship issues and "Dungeons & Dragons" are here to stay on this show, no doubt about it. Like Sheldon said to Raj when he refused to play because he was angry over his dating prospects: "If that becomes a reason not to play Dungeons & Dragons, this game's in serious trouble."

Do you think Raj will ever find love? Share your thoughts on iReport or post a comment.

    Poor Raj,

    Can't talk to women on his own at all and booze will make him go overboard and anti-anxiety drugs make him do bizarre things. Ever wonder how he got this way in the first place ?

    And his parents pretty much rule his love life – their way or the highway....Indian girl or nothing....

      and yet he's the only guy Sheldon's superhot sister was interested in and the only guy who almost hooked Summer Glau. I think God had to give him some kryptonite cuz come on.

      You must be working in the sewage to be that ignorant and stupid. There is a difference between Indians and West Indians. Did you not manage to get a book through the rubbish you collect and have someone read to you about Geography?

      Sure you can be a racist. Just because you've been the object of racism doesn't mean that you can't have preconceived notions of people from another race and have unfounded reasons to hate them...

      No Lamar you are not racist. Neither am I when i say all black people are gang members, drug dealers living things who God designed to be inferior in looks,caste and nature. (am saying this because i met a handful of you, but nops am not racist!)

    RAJ is a dooodoooo head. If his family is rich it is because they stole the money from the opressed peoples of india. I bet he is g@y or a druggie like that kumar guy.

    Hating people from India doesnt make you a racist. It just makes you normal. I bet indian girl has never been within 1000 miles of India. If she had she would know it is a cesspool. The nastiest country on the face of the earth. It makes Haiti look like paradise.

      Am sure Betty is a very wise, learned world traveler whose gone around the world and can now give a pronounced and very pragmatic view on the countries of the world...OR a dried up old/fat fart that has never crossed the threshold of her own home, let alone travel but wants desperately to contact the other bigots of the world! Either way, well done to you!
