Lindsay confirmed the romantic news in a recent interview with Page Six: “We’re definitely dating!”
Carl similarly confirmed the relationship in an interview with Us Weekly. “I’m happy to report, we are dating and things are really good,” he shared. “We’re very happy. She’s someone that’s been an incredible support and part of my life [for years].”
Last fall, fans began speculating that the longtime Summer House pals may be giving dating another try after things briefly got romantic between them in Season 4. The pair kept it coy when asked about the dating rumors in an interview with ET in October, with Carl ultimately referring to their "friendship" as being "very tight."
Lindsay later shot down the speculation during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in November. "Listen, Carl and I have been, always have been, still are, and will be best friends. I mean, we hang out together," she said at the time. "I think a lot of people don't necessarily know we live in the same building, so we do a lot of things together. I'm, you know, single, if that answers the question."
Though they have now confirmed that they're dating, Lindsay and Carl are still not at the point where they're calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend just yet. “We don’t really talk in labels, Carl and I," Lindsay said in her latest interview with Page Six. "[But] we’re very much together. We’re very happy.”
Lindsay also told the publication that she and Carl were "in such very different headspaces" when they previously tried to pursue a romantic relationship. "I honestly feel like I tried to cover up my feelings, but I don’t think those feelings ever died," she said.
Carl noted to Us Weekly that he and Lindsay started spending more time together last year, particularly in the fall after Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula's wedding, where he noticed a shift in their dynamic. “There’s just been more feelings. We hang out all the time. I can’t tell you how many friends of ours have said, ‘Oh, what about, you know, like, deep down, always wondering [about] me and Lindsay.’ And I ran from that for some reason,” Carl said. “I was scared cause dating your best friend [is] really freaking scary.”
Carl also credited his sobriety for helping to evolve his relationship with Lindsay. “Lindsay’s and I’s relationship has grown immensely in the last year because of my sobriety and where I’m at. Things have gotten more romantic,” he shared. “I’m very happy. Where we are right now, we’re just happy.”
Lindsay also spoke about the importance of continuing to support Carl on his journey as they explore this new relationship. “His sobriety has been a huge priority for him and it’s also been a huge priority for me,” she said in her interview with Page Six. “Obviously, we know everything about each other as far as friends — and that’s what makes such a solid foundation for us to be able to navigate his sobriety and [figure out] what his needs are in that capacity, in a new romantic relationship.”
Though Carl said that turning their friendship into romance hasn't been "easy," both he and Lindsay shared how the fact that they have known each other for years has aided in the transition, noting how much they make each other laugh and how they feel like they "speak the same language," as Lindsay put it in her interview with Page Six.
Lindsay also told the publication that she and Carl "wanted a little bit of privacy" before they went public with their relationship. “Being able to do it again, but just blocking everything else out and really focusing on each other and spending time with each other without outside distractions, has been really helpful,” she said. “We wanted to keep our privacy private [for as long as we could]. We don’t get honeymoon phases anymore!”
But Lindsay did tease that we will "see a new evolution" in their relationship this season, with Carl also telling Us Weekly that we will see their romance "play out toward the end" of the upcoming Season 6 of Summer House, which premieres on Monday, January 17 at 9/8c (trailer above).
According to a first look at the Summer House Season 6 premiere shared exclusively with Bravo Insider members, Lindsay comes into the house "casually dating" Jason Cameron after romance bloomed for the two during their time in Vermont on Winter House. "But we're not exclusive," she says in the clip. "I am independent and free flying, and I want to keep my options open."
Carl also confirms in the sneak peek that he is single and "excited about the summer." "I've been finally kind of ready to start dating, I think," he says.
