57 | Dating Coach: Ruby Le
Dating is hard, especially now when meeting-in person is almost impossible. Dating within the Asian American community is even harder since there are unfair dating dynamics at play for Asian men and Asian women. One out of three Asian Americans marry outside of their race where Asian women are two times more likely than Asian men to marry outside their race. Media’s portrayal of Asian men doesn’t help either. To dig a bit deeper into dating dynamics, Lucia sits down with Ruby Le, a professional dating coach and founder of The Good Gentleman. She prides herself in rooting for the nice guys. In this talk, we dissect some of the biggest mistakes men and women make while dating. Ruby also opens up about her choice to pursue a career as a dating coach to the chagrin of her parents, and talks about the silver lining of dating during COVID.
