In response to the point you were trying to make though I can see where you're coming from, but my thought on it was that like after Back and Forth they were more back to friend status, since she maybe saw banging those bitches as a sign that he might not want to date her, as compared to when they were getting really close before that, right after the Another Shoulder chapter. Granted they have had bonding moments like Carry Me, but I think it's still not as obvious as it once might have been to Lucy especially with her mind being preoccupied on Mike's D-isgust of her.
That's an interesting consideration. My problem is that I feel like if Lucy really did love Paulo, she'd have gotten over that. It is pretty apparent (even to the cast) that Paulo feels differently about Lucy than he does about anyone else. That includes Rachel, Dusty (I can't remember the name of the female dog, but she looks like a "Dusty" so let's go with that), and even Jasmine. The difference is he loves her.

What Lucy needs is someone who will help her stand on her own and offer support, but not be her crutch which is all Mike, Paulo and now Augustus are ever going to be. LucyxSelfesteem every-fucking-day.
In regards to everything you said, it is all very interesting, though I don't know if I entirely agree. I don't feel like there is enough information to know whether or not Paulo's desire to spend more time with Jasmine is "abnormal." How much time are they spending together, really? It is completely natural to want to spend time with your other when you're in a relationship -- yes, even for the male. Honestly, I would say in today's society it is "abnormal" to want a relationship more focused on not being around each other! But my point is, it is hard to say how often they even are together; all we can conclude is that Paulo did (and possibly does) have a problem with it.
Also, even if Paulo is abnormal in the sense he wants to spend a lot of time with his number 1 hoe, I don't think it changes much. It seems I've stumbled into a discussion on who a finger should be pointed at, and while I can't say who is at fault, I can say Paulo simply wanting a girlfriend he can be around a lot -- abnormal or not -- does not indicate he is at fault.
Also, ha, how is Augustus a crutch? If anything he is rat poison in the temperamental world known as Lucy.
