Handler captioned the photo, ‘Do you know how hot it is to have a man be turned on by my honesty, strength, and confidence? Someone who loves the fact that I’m not going to take anyone’s sh*t and isn’t intimidated or emasculated by my fierceness? Jo has renewed my faith in men.
‘For everyone who is still looking for their person, do not adjust who you are or make yourself smaller to find them. Be patient and never settle for anything less than you deserve. Your person is coming and sometimes—they’ve been standing in front of you the whole time.’

The pair opened up about their relationship on Handler’s podcast Dear Chelsea last month with The Chelsea Does star saying Koy though their chemistry was ‘sexual’ while she though it was ‘comedic.’
Koy disagreed with that idea, saying, ‘Never did I ever say that! That’s not how it went down.’
‘What makes me sad is that you don’t remember any of the things I remember,” Koy added. ‘In my head, it’s such a beautiful story. And when I finish telling it, you go, “Really? That happened?”‘
