E537 Ask Nick - There’s No Medal For Staying Friends

Update: 2023-02-06


Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back to answer your burning questions about the world of dating and relationships. Before getting to our callers, we discuss Amanda’s trip to Vegas, Ali matching with a British man on Hinge, and we Yay-SMR a listener who ended a 10 year long situationship. Finally, we have our most recent Breakup Song of the Week submission. Our first caller is debating pursuing the woman her ex girlfriend cheated on her with. Do they have a connection, or is the instinct out of spite? Our next caller has a long distance boyfriend that has a lot of opinions and criticisms of the outfits she wears. We discuss that it might be less about the outfits, and more about a lack of trust in their relationship. Our final caller is debating how to handle running into her fitness coach now that their relationship has ended. Should she leave her gym, or try to muscle through? 

“There’s no medal for being friends with someone you have feelings for.”
