E631 Ask Nick - How Do We Give Up Our 6-Year Situationship

Update: 2023-08-28


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 whether or not you ask waiters for their opinions on the menu, and parenting strategies in bringing up “the birds and the bees.” We also read a submission from someone who thinks she may want to be an F Boy. As a single divorced mother, her life is very fulfilled. Except for one thing–sex. She doesn’t want a relationship, and is wondering how to fulfill her sex life while still being a good parent. We then get to our callers. 

Our first caller is moving in with her ex who won’t speak to her. In a few weeks, she’ll be studying abroad through her grad program, and living in a house with 20 other students, including her ex who hates her. Our second caller’s person left to find herself in London. Fresh off the devastating breakup from someone she dated for a year, and has known since they’ve been children, she’s unsure whether to keep the friendship in the hope of rekindling one day, or cutting off communication. Our final callers have been in a 6 year long-distance situationship and can’t seem to fully commit or break it off. He is currently in a relationship, but they plan to see each other this weekend. They don’t want to cross that line, but can’t seem to cut ties fully with each other. 

“We have to prioritize the quality of someone wanting to be with us.”
