Two years later, Connor is ready to bring to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera. In this diary-like look at his life since A Work in Progress, Connor talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love, and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values shares and likes over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment—with others and himself.
Told through short essays, letters to his past and future selves, poetry, and original photography, Note to Self is a raw, in-the-moment look at the fascinating interior life of a young creator turning inward in order to move forward.

Connor Franta, whose YouTube channel has more than 5.6 million subscribers, is in Vancouver to promote his memoir, ‘Note to Self’. He’ll answer our questions and yours today during his visit to our studio.
Connor has grown from YouTube personality to global trendsetter, entrepreneur, New York Times bestselling author and dedicated LGBTQ+ philanthropist with an audience of more than 17 million across YouTube and social media. His new book, “Note to Self,” is a diary-like look at his life and talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values shares and likes over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment—with others and himself.
Let’s be honest, being single can be great and playing the field is exciting, but first dates can be totally awkward sometimes. For example, how do you continue a conversation when the first thing out of your date’s mouth is, “I’m boring?” Do you just “light yourself on fire” and run away, or do you painfully play it cool until you find a way out?
YouTube sensation and resident coolest kid on the block, Connor Franta, sat down with me, had a drink, and doled out some advice for when it comes to nailing that first date and avoiding any cringe-worthy conversations.
Avoid answering questions with just a simple “yes” or “no”. You always want the person to feel like you’re interested in them and vice versa.
There’s nothing wrong with an escape plan. Everyone’s heard of the “emergency call” situation where you have a friend ready at will to call you in case you need an easy out. If you choose to use this lifeline, odds are, your date will get the message things are going poorly if they haven’t already.
A cheesy pick-up line might not be the worst thing in the world. It’s actually something that could grab their attention and say a little bit about your personality.
Try to think of something else to describe yourself other than “BORING.”
If things aren’t vibing after a date, in deciding between ghosting and just being upfront and honest, try to just tell them like it is and be a kind person.
Don’t be afraid to get into your passions and talk about what you want to do in life.
Hey, it’s OK to kiss on the first date.
Make sure you’re smelling fresh and clean before your date.
To be frank, there’s no turning around a bad first date. ONTO THE NEXT.
And as for second dates, try an activity, or just get ready to open up a little more with deeper questions, and if they get freaked out, it’s on them.
