I would encourage anybody struggling with their sexuality to go with their heart. If it's not an appropriate time, there will be one later. Never, ever try to rush into anything - do it in your own time.
I dated a lot of girls all through high school, and in college I dated a young lady for about eight months.

It wasn't until I could get out of Stanford that I could sit down and think about my life, to do the things that most kids do, which is to ask who am I, what do I want to be when I grow up. I never got to do Dan Pintauro.
In New York, I much prefer playing older because as characters get older, they get more interesting.
