We’ve had many, many up to the minute updates about Ben Affleck and his new lady Lindsay Shookus. Like how they got together, how they really might have gotten together, how Jennifer Garner feels about the situation (not great!), and how Lindsay is handling being a famous-adjacent person now. But the question remains: how are Ben and Lindsay really doing.
There is an update to add to the ever-growing list of things to know about Ben and Lindsay. UsWeekly says they’re “going strong.” As if there was any alternative? I don’t think anyone would ever be like “Oh, it’s so tragically weak. Like the enamel of a fruit punch drinker. Their relationship is practically covered in zip-ties and duct tape to prevent it from falling apart.”
Several sources have spoken to UsWeekly with some insider details, and I don’t know if their relationship is strong so much as it just sounds like it’s fine?
The two-time Oscar winner has been “casually dating” Shookus since April, says an Affleck insider, “and he’s very happy with her.”
“Lindsay is an incredibly intelligent woman,” says another Affleck pal. “They have really good conversations and just like hanging out with other.”
I don’t know if those sources even had to come out and say it. It’s very obvious that Ben and Lindsay like hanging out with each other. It’s evident in those matching outfits! That shot above was taken Wednesday night after Ben and Lindsay checked out of their hotel in New York City. I would say a relationship is officially worth it if you’re willing to risk missing your scheduled check-out time so you can spend an extra 45 minutes picking out perfectly coordinated cool blue-and-gray ensembles.
