We ask Michelle how she balances her personal life with her students after the show, her career plans for the future, and if she plans to be moving from Minnesota. We then ask about the season, getting her read on Martin's “high maintenance” conversation, her active eye for red flags, and her relationship pet peeves as we move forward in the season. We then ask about recent rumors surrounding Nayte, and get a read on how well our guesses for the final contestants have been. We get into the real questions, so let's dive in, and talk to Michelle!  “It's not always going to feel good to listen to that red flag/gut reaction, but in the end it's in your benefit to make those tough calls.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

They ask how to deal with someone you love when they constantly blackout and become aggressive when alcohol is a factor. Then we talk to a caller who is navigating if it is appropriate to have sex on the first date, citing that their sex-positive nature and eagerness to have sex on the first date is turning men off from the idea of continuing to date our caller. Lastly, our caller attempts to figure out if they can turn a casual flirting situation into something more serious, or if someone that started out as passive and casual is doomed to stay that way forever.  “Whether you're with her or you're not, you're going to wish you would have given her this much energy.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit https://www.viallfiles.com today!

Turns out she has some internal work to do to figure out how to be a better friend, if she decides she really wants to be one. Next, we speak with someone who is keeping her situationship on ice, but her expectations may lead her to mourning a relationship with someone she's never even dated. Lastly, we speak with someone who has developed a friendship with someone in her industry, only to realize they might be interested in more.

    It's Monday and that means another edition of Ask Nick! Today we first speak with someone who was sleeping with her half-sister's not-blood cousin, and while it's now over, his side of the family knows and she's wondering if she should tell her sister. Our next caller's boyfriend has recently rekindled a friendship with another girl despite our caller's discomfort with it. Now she is trying to untangle whether it's her insecurities or if he really is fighting more for a friend than he is for their relationship. We then speak with someone who had split from her baby daddy and now after some time he wants to try again. She's not sure if he's changed but would like to try to have that family unit for their daughter and thinks maybe getting engaged is the answer. Finally, we speak with someone who is new to dating and acknowledges that her neurosis got the best of her on a date. He has since told her he doesn't feel chemistry and she would like to call the guy and tell him that she agrees and why.   “Do you even like this guy, or do you just want to be liked?”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don't miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!
