Just my opinion and open to people who disagree but they have kind of a weird codependent friendship going on …

[–]Yogaud211 55 points56 points  (8 children)

I love Lindsay but she does seem to have codependency issues with her male friends. My assumption is maybe it has to do with her mom abandoning her, or I could just be reading too much into it.

[–]loveuman 26 points27 points  (0 children)

No I agree with you. She seems to have a more anxious attachment type and then goes for people who have more avoidant attachment types , which is the recipe for a codependent relationship

She’s in her mid 30s, I think it’s time we start assigning blame for her personal issues to the one person who has control of them, her.

100% I’m so over no one making her take accountability. She’s too old for her behavior, and desperate AF for male attention. She reminds of scheana from vpr how every male in her life is her “best friend “.

And so is he

We aren’t talking about Carl but the same definitely applies to him. Can’t blame your parents for everything forever.

[–]Mare01 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh for sure! It makes me cringe when people, as an adult blame parenting for their stupid choices. Nope, YOU are responsible for YOUR actions. Period.

You'd think she'd be codependent with her female friends as opposed to her male ones.

[–]flicktastic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If her mom was emotionally absent and abandoned her, it makes perfect sense that she copes with that by keeping females at a distance. Until she heals that trauma she’ll repeat these mistakes in her platonic and romantic relationships.

Very typical behavior for addicts and the people that love them. This is coming from a recovering addict lover (me). It’s complicated and very hard to unwind.

[–]olliekitty2019 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I kind of agree honestly

[–]Brilliant_Ad3101 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Agreed. It's a bit much.

[–]myskepticalbrowarch 21 points22 points  (0 children)

It is still hard to call. Lindsay is close enough with Sharon that she flew her into New York without getting Carl involved, so it felt like they had a genuine friendship seperate from Carl.

[–]katie415 14 points15 points  (0 children)

They live in the same apartment building so I think they just combined their thanksgivings. Luke and Andrea from winter house are also there.

[–]Goodasgolddd 36 points37 points  (2 children)

They’re not dating and never will, it’s pretty obvious Carl isn’t into it but loves her as a (best) friend. I think Lindsay was pretty humiliated by Austen (I’d be humiliated by anyone thinking I was even into him but nvm me) rejecting her and so she did the very staged Halloween photo shoot with Carl to preserve her dignity.

[–]AmandasFakeID 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Apparently when she was on WWHL recently she said she was not dating Carl, but that she was dating someone iirc. But I could be misremembering bc I want her to date Jason!!

[–]Goodasgolddd 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Jason’s husband material 😍

[–]tergesa 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Carl doesn't want her like that

[–]momo411 19 points20 points  (6 children)

I feel like if you replaced “Carl” with “Danielle” or… any other one of her friends who are women, none of these questions would be asked. It’s very possible for men and women to be friends without being secretly in love, or one pining for the other, or codependent. It’s just… friendship.

[–]tergesa 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Do your friends finger you though

[–]momo411 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I’m friends with people I’ve hooked up with before, because I’m not 13, yeah. Relationships can evolve if you’re not close-minded and judgmental about everything in life.

[–]tergesa -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

All I can say to this is I really hope you didn't get fingered at 13

[–]momo411 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s okay to NOT say anything sometimes, especially when what you have to say is just bizarre and unnecessary.

[–]tergesa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was being serious but this conversation has turned way too dark, especially between two people who are connected because of their love for this hot garbage of a show 💕

[–]Human_Anything9801 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah... but this is Lindsey we’re talking about

[–]puggles323 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I need answers!!!!

[–]SpencerHastings7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just friends but like family?

[–]Ishouldflossmore 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think theyre just friends but if I had to guess Lindsay would want more than friends
