Breaking up with longtime boyfriend Danny Chan (陳炳銓) in 2020, Ali Lee (李佳芯) has remained single. Feeling weary in starting a new relationship, Ali spoke extensively about her previous relationship and what went wrong.
On the most recent episode of the variety show Walking with You 3 <仨心友行3>, show host Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) welcomed Ali, Mayanne Mak (麥美恩), and Tiffany Lau (劉穎鏇) as guests. Openly discussing their views on love and relationships, Mayanne and Tiffany both admitted to being too friendly and often causing the opposite sex to overthink their gestures. On the other hand, Ali shared that her personality is rather direct. This personality trait stems from her youth, as her mother often strictly forbade Ali from doing anything that would mislead others. When she realizes she may be too nice to someone of the opposite sex, she would immediately stop. Due to this, Ali feels she does not have a lot of pursuers.
Ali shared, “If I like someone, I will bother him all day long even if he doesn’t pursue me. If I don’t like him, I wouldn’t accept any gestures from him and would act like a man and say to him ‘It’s okay. No need. I can carry this myself.’ I am very afraid of people misunderstanding me.”
Hoping that her other half would understand and support her, Ali further added, “I come off as someone who is very strong. It’s easy for my other half to feel that I don’t need him, because I am not someone who will whine or sweet-talk. Now I’ve learned that a simple ‘I don’t know how to do this–what would I do without you?’ can make someone feel needed and happy.”
Although she did not disclose the reason for breaking up with Danny, Ali admitted that there were many issues which had been brewing for a long time. Due to the pandemic and isolating, they were able to spend more time together, causing the issues to surface and forcing them to face the matters head-on. Despite this, the ex-couple ended on good terms, with Ali expressing that they continue to remain friends who stay in touch. “I’m very grateful that we’re able to find an alternate way of maintaining a relationship as friends.”
