Oh, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. How many of these things are we gonna have to write about you, buddypal? First, there was... Whatever, we don’t even want to go back that far. But most recently, there was... We probably don’t even know. The notorious ladies’ man has likely had more than his fair share of groupies — both IndyCar and Bachelorette related — and a few cute friends have become more than friends of late. Is Lindzi Cox the latest?

Both Arie and Lindzi have kept the Bachelor Nation strong by dating in their inner circle — Arie briefly romanced Courtney Robertson, and Lindz was tied to Bachelor Pad 3 love Kalon McMahon until recently — so it doesn’t seem far-fetched that they’d date each other next. However, the sheer square-ness of that love rhombus makes us feel a little weak in the mid-section.

The same night that this picture popped into our lives, Arie tweeted one of two plates of sushi with the caption “Made sushi tonight... I think my date liked it.” Nevermind the fact that homeboy made some perfectly respectable looking rolls. What we want to know is, does Arie have OCD was one of them for our girl Lindzi?

So, what’s the deal? Well, as far as we’ve heard, the two are just friends. Although Lindz and Court were the least of friends on The Bachelor Season 16, and Arie (like everyone else) hated Kalon on The Bachelorette Season 8, this isn’t a revenge hook-up... As far as we know.

Nope, it seems that Lindzi and her girls (including Kacie Boguskie) were chilling in Scottsdale and happened to run into tight shirt-wearer Arie. At least, that’s how it seems. Thoughts?
