S4E7: How Toxic Relationships Lead To Toxic Financial Habits ft. Brian Lim, Relationship Counsellor
/

How Much Is Love Worth?

When relationships sour or take a bad turn, they might bring out the worst in us. Cases of financial abuse – or just abuse in general – happen more often than we think, often leading people to overcompensating in different ways to save the sinking ship. How do we know when to call it quits? How do we resolve issues without resorting to spending money on arbitrary gifts and holidays?

In this episode, our hosts ask Brian, a relationship counsellor, for some advice when relationships become toxic (or what “toxic” even means!) and bring about bad financial habits.

It’s Pay-to-Play, Not Pay-to-Love

As events migrate online, and YouTubers and game streamers become more popular, our hosts talk about what it means to support content creators, boundaries between fans and creators, and how to make sure you don’t blow all your money on someone who’s just doing their job.

What’s the most you’ve spent supporting an online personality?

All We Need Is Love — Or Not

Relationships are hard enough. Long distance? Even harder, we suspect.
