E556 Ask Nick - My Boyfriend Scammed Me Out of $400

Update: 2023-03-20


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 friendship and how hard - but rewarding - it can be to find your people. We then get our latest Breakup Song of the Week submission. Our first caller has a friend with benefits that has a list of “girlfriend criteria.” We go through his list and find out just how ridiculous his expectations and requirements are. Our next caller has a crush on her co worker’s client, and isn’t sure how to shoot her shot without stepping on toes and making work awkward. Is her friend being an unknowing obstacle, or is she interested in her client, too? Our final caller’s boyfriend scammed her out of $400 and refuses to give it back. How has he continued to dodge her requests, and why are they still in a relationship? We get into all of the details. 

“If you don’t take big swings in life, you won’t have great things either.”
