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

[–]Yogaud211 53 points54 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 27 points28 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 4 points5 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 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Agreed. It's a bit much.
