Quotes:“I spent a lot of time getting to know my ego” - Nick Viall "Someone who doesn't want to be with us is not our person...We should be with people who want to prioritize us.""I've definitely felt emasculated...We all have to have that space to be able to admit when we don't feel enough. We are enough but sometimes we quite literally don't feel that... I think it takes a lot of guts for a man to admit that.""I feel that you are doing the work in ways that I love hearing that men are doing...I hear a lot of accountability and ownership, emotional willingness to have conversations. So I think you're exemplifying honestly some of the ways that men can learn from. I'm glad you're doing the work you're doing." - Jamey HeathAbout Nick Viall: Nick starred in the 21st season of ABC’s The Bachelor, and now hosts the People’s Choice nominated podcast, The Viall Files which explores dating in the modern age.
