A Russian influencer whose boyfriend chose his career over their relationship has explained how she took revenge in a TikTok video.
Polina Nioly, 25, who shares videos @nioly explains in the captions to the video: “He broke up with you to focus on his career and now you’re going on a date with an owner of the company he works at.”
In the video we see the woman standing on a set of stairs, dressed to impress. At first Polina is gazing upwards before looking at the camera and then descending stairs for her night out.

However not everyone is impressed with her story.
“Why is this a flex?” one asks. “There’s nothing wrong with a guy that wants to focus on his career especially if he has invested thousands of dollars on his education.”
“I actually respect him for his decision,” adds another.
“At least he’s working i see nothing wrong here ppl aren’t obliged to stay, he put himself first,” another writes.
“How do people glorify this,” one asks.
“That’s exactly the difference between successful men and successful women,” another comments. “A man will find any woman he likes not looking her financial situation.”
“Why are ppl looking down on him for wanting to prioritize himself and his work as if he missed out on anything,” explains another.
Polina does not take the criticism lying down, responding in the comments that she is independently wealthy and not looking for a man with money, as is being suggested.
“Besties I am a millionaire with a 100+ employees, am I suppose to date someone less than I am?” she says. “No thanks.”
She also defends herself against those who have taken the video more seriously than she intended.
“Where do you see me flexing tho?” she asks. “I am sharing a fun and random situation.”
“Sweetie, you’re doing it right,” one person writes.
“I claim this energy,” adds another.
“If that is not a boss move I do not know what is,” another comments.
