Wait until next week: it really is a low-grade birthday breakdown. It will be uncomfortable to watch but I put it all out there

Taking Jake to the GLAAD Awards was hilarious. He really isn't a closer. Dating and finding a man is its own art, and has very little to do with looks. It's all about confidence and strategy. Meeting a man in a bar or at a party is like a chess game: you need to focus and make moves when the board changes. Jake had ADD and had no idea how to focus on what was right in front of him. Catch fish, then cook it, and eat it.

Our double date was perfectly inappropriate. I had never been on a double date with two men, and I highly recommend you try it. I love that Jake was totally himself with his date, just as he would be with me.

I'm so proud of the show. We really do go there this season, and it is often uncomfortable to watch. I really let you guys into my life -- so much that it is difficult at times.

I have to thank you for buying and reading A Place of Yes. It really does tell it all, and it will give you insight as to why I am the way I am, and how I really did get here in love, work, and in everything.
