Affleck and Shookus have continued to spend time together since news broke of their relationship. On July 10, the duo grabbed pizza in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles. They also spent time together in Las Vegas earlier this month. Affleck even visited Shookus at 30 Rock, where she works as a producer for Saturday Night Live.
"Lindsay is an incredibly intelligent woman," a friend of the actor's told Us Weekly. "They have really good conversations and just like hanging out with other."
It's unclear how long Affleck and Shookus have been dating. Sources told People that cheated on their spouses with each other back in 2013. But other insiders said the couple didn't get together until after Affleck and Shookus separated from Jennifer Garner and Kevin Miller, respectively.
Either way, tabloids have speculated that Affleck and Shookus are ready to take the next step. One mag even alleged that Affleck was thinking about starting a family with the producer. But a friend of the actor's told Gossip Cop that the report is completely "false."
In fact, Affleck is enjoying not having too many personal responsibilities righ tnow. He is having fun with Shookus and likes spending time with her. But he just got out of a 10-year marriage, and he already has three young children. He's not looking for an ultra-serious relationship at this minute.
Shookus is in a similar position. She also recently got out of a marriage, and she has a young daughter.
