    Ask Nick - Bad Sex, Good Connection

    Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back again to bring on our callers and help them navigate the crazy world of relationships. We bring on our first caller who is considering breaking up with her boyfriend but struggles as she considers the hurdles of moving out, having been financially dependent on him. Now she wonders the best way to find her own independence. Our next caller is seeing a guy that’s having trouble performing in bed. With this guy being hardset about how the relationship should work, our caller wonders how to navigate expectations and if she should overlook sex for the time being if the connection is strong. Our last caller is dealing with the end of a situationship and wonders the best approach to move on from a short but emotional situation.

    Timelines and Receipts - Bachelor In Paradise Finale Recap

    Timelines and Receipts - Bachelor In Paradise Finale Recap

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor In Paradise Edition! On this episode, we’re joined by Natalie Joy as we recap the dramatic two night finale of this season as we get the answers on who stays in love and who will leave brokenhearted. Before we get into the Bachelor drama, we start things off by drawing attention to the situation in Iran. We then break down and react to breaking news about SK and Raven from Love Is Blind, involving a potential court case and another woman. We then get into some Bachelor Tea, addressing the social media posts from Kate and Logan after their breakup, Logan going along with the joke, Ali making her Bachelor Nation debut, and Sierra’s reactions to being specifically requested to return to the beach. We then dive into the two day finale itself, breaking down the last moments of paradise and the reunion show. We get into Wells recapping the season, Mara leaving on her own accord, Jesse having trouble addressing emotional hardship, and the final rose ceremony that has Kate breaking up with Logan. We also dive into the twins going home, Shanae unintentionally being mean to Joey, Aaron communicating that he wants to end the relationship with Genevieve, and Tyler and Brittany leaving Paradise happily together. We then move to the reunion to get the updates on how everyone is doing since leaving the beach. We recap the reveal that Tyler and Brittany have split, Brittany claiming she couldn’t get the space she needed, Eliza saying she felt like she made a mistake regarding Rodney, Justin looking Eliza when he was in Los Angeles, Johnny coming out to talk about his breakup with Victoria, Victoria’s accusations of what Johnny called her, the timeline of their breakup before Victoria starting dating Greg. We also recap Tyler and Johnny talking about Victoria outside the studio, Greg appearing and showing off their new matching tattoos, why they chose to go on a date in Rome, and the happy engagement with Brandon and Serene to end the season. 

    “She saw the signs and stepped away.”

    Ask Nick - You Don’t Need to be Happy for Them

    Ask Nick - You Don’t Need to be Happy for Them

    Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back again to bring on our callers and help them navigate the world of dating. Before getting to our callers, the group talks about avoiding burnout, Ali shares about her first date, and Amanda announces this week’s break-up song, with a couple of honorable mentions in preparation for the upcoming Turkey Dump. We then get into it, welcoming our first caller, who is planning to visit a hook-up overseas. She wants to have fun and keep it casual while also getting to know the deal on if things will be moving to the next level. Is it worth having the awkward conversation and possibly ruining the vacation? Next, our next caller needs advice on how to get over a secret situationship from within her friend group that has recently ended, after the guy started dating his ex, who is still in this group. With nobody in the group knowing about the previous situationship, our caller wonders if she should feel pressured to keep the secret and how she can properly move on. Lastly, we speak with a caller who decided she wanted more from a guy she thought she was casually dating. When she told him she’d been dating other people but wanted to be exclusive with him, he responded by acting confused and not knowing if he wanted to commit or not. Is there such a thing as the right guy at the wrong time, or are they simply just not communicating expectations effectively? 

    “Is this helping me heal?”

    Going Deeper with Jason Nash Plus Conversation With A Sociopath

    Going Deeper with Jason Nash Plus Conversation With A Sociopath

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we are joined by YouTuber, podcast, and comedian, Jason Nash! On this episode we kick things off by wrapping up our recap of Love Is Blind Season 3, digging into the cuties scene. We then react to the breaking news of Pete Davidson dating Emily Ratajkowski and what we think of his dating life overall. We then welcome Jason himself to dive deep into his new podcast, how he got his start with YouTube, being a dad, navigating social media, and his biggest fear. We then have Kanika Batra, an influencer diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder, call onto the show to give us an honest and transparent look into her life, dating, and what she wished women were better at doing. We then get into some pop culture news, talking about disappointment from Selena Gomez’s kidney donor, Chris Evans dating, and the Taylor Swift Mastermind TikTok trend. We then welcome our Texting Office Hours Callers to give them advice as they navigate the dating world. Our first caller is wondering how to deal with a guy breadcrumbing after it seems like things have fizzled out. She asks for advice on how to create some new sparks. Our next caller has been in a situationship for a few months and wonders how to get the guy to take it seriously. Now she must learn how to shoot her shot and state what she’s looking for.

    Bachelor In Paradise Recap w/ Jake Miller

    Bachelor In Paradise Recap w/ Jake Miller

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor In Paradise Edition! On this episode, we’re joined by singer, songwriter, and Bachelor Fan, Jake Miller, as we return to paradise to recap the latest of the love, the heartbreak, and the drama. On this episode, after talking about Jake’s proposal, we kick things off first by getting into some Bachelor Nation tea. We talk about Rachel entering the dating world again, and we also break down Jesse Palmer’s statements about the upcoming season, with Zach feeling like a throwback. We then get into recapping the two episodes themselves, starting off with the aftermath of Rodney’s emotional exit, Brandon’s questioning of love, and then breaking down Eliza’s trip to Baltimore to pursue Justin. We talk about how valid Justin’s statements are, if he would pursue Eliza after the show, and if he was just trying to win in the moment. We also talk about how everyone is talking about wanting to be picked this season, Mara’s explosive entrance, and Johnny opening up about his family problems. We dive more into Kate’s statements regarding Logan, what her requests for him to do more actually mean, and a surprise entrance by Gabby and Rachel to shake up some drama. We talk about if Kate actually needed to be “saved” from Logan, whether or not Genevieve and Aaron are truly compatible, and the drama behind the itch versus pain argument. We close out with the Sadie Hawkins Dance from Hell, with Jessenia trying to get closure from Andrew, Ency attempting to intervene in them talking, Andrew admitting his heart is still with Teddi, and the departure of Jessenia, Andrew, and Ency from the show.

    “If you’re not into her, just say it!”

    Ask Nick - My Mom Leaked My Pregnancy

    Ask Nick - My Mom Leaked My Pregnancy

    Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re back again to bring on our callers and give advice about dating and relationships. On this episode, we bring on our first caller who is having trouble when her mom wants her to post about her pregnancy, while the caller wants to keep it private for the time being. Our caller tries to get advice about the best way to communicate with her mother, and not succumb to the pressure of what her family wants. Our next caller is currently stuck in a situationship with a man 15 years older than her. Feeling like she’s more mature than this guy, she wonders how to communicate that he’s not capable of giving her what she wants in a relationship. Our last caller feels like the other woman after finding out that the guy lost his last girlfriend in a car accident. With this guy still calling his late girlfriend his girlfriend, our caller wonders how to help this man move through grief and if instead she should actually move on to let him mourn on his own terms. 

    “I just want to enjoy him for now.”

My Favourite Podcast

I love this podcast “Ask Nick” is my favourite gets me through work!!!

andreageekgirl ,

Disappointing

Decided to listen for the first time after seeing a few clips on IG. After listening to 20 minutes of bashing James Corden I gave up. I tuned in to listen to a podcast, not to listen to two people slagging off someone else. Bad form

Love Ask Nick!

Ask Nick is brilliant company and has made me feel like ive been socialising in lockdown.
