Nick Viall claims that his girlfriend is a DM REPELLANT!
Not every DM will result in a romantic relationship. Nick Viall, on the other hand, was extremely fortunate.
The Bachelor alum and host of The Viall Files podcast discussed how DMs led to his romance with Natalie Joy on the latest episode of E! News’ digital series Down in the DMs.
“I think DMs are a fantastic place to meet people,” he said. My current girlfriend managed to find her way into my direct messages. It said, very cleverly, “You’re unreal.” It was amusing, I suppose. “I was more curious about why I wasn’t real.”
Nick joked that after almost two years with Natalie, she can sometimes act like “DM repellent in the best way possible.”
“If anyone was trying to get into my DMs in any romantic way,” he continued, “you’d probably know after one look at my Instagram that you’re wasting your time.”
The reality star has learned social media etiquette over the years, such as sending only one follow-up message to an unread DM before calling it a day.
Every Thursday, a new episode of E! News’ digital video series Down in the DMs is released on YouTube.
