I really never knew or appreciated what that meant until I got to a minority-owned agency. Some of the smaller places I’d been early on—usually short-term contracts for a few retainers—were definitely getting culture out of a brochure: pet friendly, open layout, games, beer, a cool guy “hang out” space, Drake on the office speakers. The only culture I saw was “peaked in college.”

Don’t know if I can really explain it well, but now I’m in a place where I can be myself. Where we can speak as ourselves and not have misunderstandings unrelated to the work, and we only use our presentation voice when it’s expected and appropriate. I can be comfortable in that duality among people who also get it.

I work on a mostly female team on a high profile brand for clients of highly demanding nature (and notorious in the industry for it). Everything you’d imagine the culture to be is true - (cont.)

Someone is trying to set me up with a guy (who seems nice…but I don’t really know him beyond texting a few times). I was born and raised in America, and he was born in india, and was raised in India until he was 15. It’s a no pressure situation, but I’m so hesitant to even move forward (ie going on a date) because of the culture gap. Am I being unreasonable? I’m 27F and hes 30M.
