Despite her fruitless search for the perfect Prince Charming on last night’s season premiere of The Millionaire Matchmaker, 26-year-old Manhattan entrepreneur and proud mom Bryce Gruber insists she is ready for romance — with her tight chastity belt in check! “Of course I want to be in a healthy, happy relationship,” she tells In Touch, “but I am hesitant when it comes to intimacy. I think it’s something you do in a loving relationship. There are a lot of risks involved with sex, and I know the consequences!” Bryce, the founder of the popular women’s website, claims being a single parent to 21-month-old son Ben accounts for her often closed-off demeanor. “It’s true that I have acted that way, but once you become a parent, you have to be diligent about who you let into your life,” she explains. “But I do surround myself with loving people!” After sparks failed to fly with hunky math teacher Keith on the hit Bravo show, Bryce is now smitten with a new man — though he’s not exactly a spitting image of her lifelong dream man! “He is super-nice, age-appropriate and very handsome, but he looks nothing like George Clooney!” she laughs.
