She seemed very confident in herself—too confident in her ability to handle Potts. I never would have taken the risks that she did. I also don’t think that her living arrangements with her mother and what that entails would allow her the freedom that it did—to work and to have any kind of relationship with a man.
I was puzzled too about Ingrid, but then when I read your comments, it dawned on me that perhaps it is precisely because of her lack of freedom that she hooks up with Potts - she is not really looking for a long-term relationship, or rather she is but she knows it wouldn't fit in with the demands of her life, therefore she take the only opportunity she has to meet someone. Thinking about it it's quite sad really, for Ingrid, however at least it is a potentially positive for Potts.
You make a good point here, Peachy. One I hadn't thought about. Maybe it is an element of human nature to be drawn to certain types of people or people in certain situations because they fit into our own situations or needs at the time.
