Situation diffused, I guess. Is Paulo based and respectingwomen-pilled?

I think I’d he knew what Lucy has just gone through he would be a little gentler with his wording lmao, but tact has never been his strong suit.

Nawww dude, she manipulated him several times in the past and he's just over it now.

I agree that he’s pretty sick of getting his heart played with haha, and I’m glad he’s sticking to his guns! I moreso think that if he knew about the Mike Drama that just went down he’d pity her. He still cares about her in a friendly way based on his actions in previous chapters…just doesn’t want to be roped into more romantic drama.

I mean, re-read After You and High Expectations and tell me Lucy didn't make her own bed here. She can't tell Paulo a million cruel things and expect him to be googly-eyed over blatant manipulation.

I think Lucy's fine but she still has a lot to learn. She shouldn't be shielded from that, and Paulo isn't throwing a December here. It'll make her better in the end. Promise, y'all.

I get where you're coming from but MIKE has treated him just as worse :/ Like Lucy obviously treated him horribly and Paulo moving on is for the best (Despite me being a PauloXLucy shipper sobb)

I like how he isn't trying to actively tug her hand away- there's like this weird familiarity still there that makes me smile

I'm sorry, I know Daisy likes Paulo, but I still ship the lucy/Paulo boat at full speed- however... if Lucy were to start dating Augustus, I think I would be ok with Paulo/daisy ship. Js.. ❤🌼

Augustus doesn't like Lucy like that, either.

Bargaining /is/ the third stage if grief.

Oof. I don't disagree that it's a good thing for Paolo to be getting over Lucy and not falling in as a replacement again but the fact that he's falling back into the old 'the only thing I ever liked about her is that she's hot' thing is a big oof. Being objectified constantly is the reason for soooo many of her self worth issues and he's been hurting her with that as far back as 'confrontation'.

Lucy's hardly blameless in hurting Paolo back but I think the biggest reason they never worked out is because he kept leaning on his playboy persona and casually implying his attraction to her as purely physical so much, she kinda just believed it. He stubbornly insisted that she wasn't special to him, so when she was at her lowest she often thought 'He doesn't really love me either. What's the harm in us using each other?'. Honestly I just love the tragedy of all these intertwined misunderstandings so much.

Was High Expectations the last major Lucy/Paulo interaction we saw? Have they even made up from that?

They actually did, in the very last pages of Witch Hunt! In ch. 107 Paulo‘s also happily celebrating Lucy‘s birthday together with her and the others (he‘s also seen playing football with her there), and also he defends Lucy in Eternal Flame when Mike shittalks her

"She's still the hottest girl in the world, but that's it." Jesus fucking Christ Paulo

Tact has never been Paulo's strong suit. I'm sure once they're in private, and if she mentions something, he'll feel bad for how he worded it. Though I still support him getting over her. She really does need more interpersonal relationships that don't revolve around attraction. Paulo's that guy that you're like " He talks like an asshole, but he has a heart of gold and will do anything in his power to help a friend"

Lucy hasn't really shown Paulo who she is besides being a pretty face. The only ones that have seen who she is on the insode is her family, August and Mike. I could be wrong here

i don't rlly see this as Paulo just saying he only sees Lucy as hot and nothing else, it reads more as "she's really attractive but i don't feel that way about her anymore" lmao
