3 Dan is somewhat of an expert about the world of online dating. He is the author of Love in the Time of Algorithms all about what technology does to meeting and mating.
4 Matt Lauer came to greet me outside the Today Show studio. Matt was very excited about the dating segment.
5 I kept thinking - What am I getting myself into?
6 Gymnast and Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas was on the Today Show before me to promote her new book, 'Raising The Bar'. At seventeen, she's quite a lovely young woman!
7 Before our segment, Today Show news anchor, Natalie Morales, shared the headlines.
8 Dan was recently married to my niece, Sophie. Here he is with Match Inc. CEO, Sam Yagan.
9 Discussing segment details with Matt Lauer
10 This recent photo from the latest issue of New You Magazine is what I wanted to post with my online dating profile.
11 Before my segment, I had a lovely chat across the studio with Gabby Douglas.
12 You may recall that Gabby won gold for both the individual and team all-around competitions.
13 Gabby described 'Raising the Bar' as a big scrapbook, highlighting her life, including the fun things she's done and the celebrities she's met over the last year.
14 Moments before showtime
15 Matt always paces before going on air.
16 I was happy to have Dan beside me on the couch.
17 The ball was in motion and there was no turning back.
18 The episode began with the taped of when Matt recently came to visit me at my farm.
19 During our chat, Matt asked me about my dating life and I told him that I love dating and even thought about going on Match.com! This fact sparked great interest.
20 And that's how we came to be here. Sam Yagan didn't think I should use photographs on my Match.com profile, but I disagreed.
21 Dan reminded me that when he and I first met, I told him all about my past suitors.
22 Judging from our faces, we were obviously having a lot of fun with the segment.
23 Sam Yagan told me that he could find me some really fun first dates.
24 Here I am with Yael, a producer from the Today Show, and her two sweet children.
25 My segment was followed by Dr. Oz, who was doing a week-long focus on detoxing.
26 After the segment, we gathered at the Witchcraft in Rockefeller Center to hatch a strategy. Apparently, it takes a whole team of people to find me a boyfriend.
27 When you listen to Sam Yagan talk about dating, you understand why he's the CEO of Match Inc.
28 After our table discussion, we wandered across the hall to Blue Bottle Coffee, a fabulous joint from Oakland, California. Here I am with my long-time publicist, Susan Magrino and Sam Yagan.
29 Sam asked for this photo to send to his mother.

31 These hip baristas know their way around a steamer.
32 And here's the proof, a gorgeous café latté.
33 At the last minute, I decided to transform my order into an iced latté. It was delicious!
34 The next stop was my office in the Starrett Lehigh building where we created my Match.com dating profile.
35 Today show producers Kerry Byrne and Jaclyn Levin discussed the next phase of the process with Sam.
36 The Today Show camera crew set up their equipment.
37 Dan, Sam and I were ready to make this Match.com profile!
38 Shortly after the Today Show segment aired, I received a number of emails from potential suitors.
39 Some of them were very amusing!
40 In very little time, we had my Match.com profile up and running! Next came looking for a date...
41 There are so many choices!
