S4, E30: Boo’ed Up Abroad: Why This Woman Left America to Date Internationally

After years of dating in the U.S., Bako felt like men weren’t pursuing her, so she left to work and date abroad. She’s sharing some of her hilarious tales from dating in Japan and dispelling some myths about Asian men. Tennesha and Bako also discuss how she’s been able to separate sexual connections from emotional ones and why her happily ever will always include a suitcase.
