A fan labeling Miguel a 'narcissist' wrote on Twitter, "So lyndy has adhd what's the problem is she incapable of true love? Miguel needs to calm down & do his stupid rap in front of a mic in the group so everyone can tell him he is great! Narcissist #marriedatfirstsightsandiego #MAFSsandiego."

Another fan claimed that Miguel is now trying to make Lindy break up with him, "Miguel is doing everything to get Lindy to break up with him #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFSsandiego #marriedatfirstsightsandiego." One fan slamming Miguel wrote, "Miguel is leading Lindy down the road of false reassurance. He wants her to think everything is okay so he can maintain the upper hand at all times.

Calling out Miguel on his fake ignorance, a fan wrote, "Miguel needs to stop acting like he doesn’t “know” stuff. That fake ignorance isn’t tricking us… might trick Lindy, but not us! #MarriedAtFirstSight #mafs #mafs15 #mafssandiego #MarriedAtFirstSightSanDiego." One fan asking the experts to step in wrote, "I just want LINDY to show Miguel her True Self! Then let's have @Pepper_Schwartz talk to them! He is being very dramatic in the vineyard scene & she's holding her breath I hate this! Be You Lindy & someone out there will love all of U! #MAFSsandiego #marriedatfirstsightsandiego." Asking the couple to split on the Decision Day a viewer tweeted, "You DON'T WANT TO be the husband Lindy needs, Miguel. Break up on Decision Day so you can be with someone that doesn't annoy you & Lindy can find someone who isn't annoyed by her very existence lol #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFSsandiego #marriedatfirstsightsandiego." Criticizing Miguel on his lack of empathy, a viewer said on Twitter, "Miguel’s problem is, he doesn’t see it as Lindy voicing her feelings when hers contradict his. He sees it as an attack + accusation. And that sound like a Miguel problem. He lacks empathy and a desire to really understand her in those moments. -Princess #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight"
