When even dating “experts” have no luck with relationships, is there hope for anyone?
Laurent got into the matchmaking business seven years ago.
“I haven’t been in the matchmaking business this long because I don’t know what I’m doing,” she boasts. I think that women don’t realize guys are rejected everywhere they go.
“I certainly do and I’ve had a lot of success, but at the same time just because we’re experts does not mean we’re perfect.
“And I’m really tired of people not really admitting that.
That’s kind of like the biggest secret among experts is: Guess what, we also are human beings. to really put that out there and say, ‘This is my passion.
This is what I do best.’ But I also have my own fears and vulnerabilities that I need to work on.” Allison says that while she can stink at maintaining relationships, she’s good at getting dates. “A lot of women don’t realize how closed down they are. They put on their sunglasses, they have their i Pod in. Julia Allison, 31, approaches appearing on a reality television show similarly to how she embarks upon practicing yoga.Before Allison started shooting “Miss Advised,” a Bravo series about three women hunting for boyfriends, she set her intentions.Which are, she says: “Be authentic”; “Don’t take yourself too seriously”; “You can make a lot of mistakes and still be happy.” It has long been Allison’s intention to get famous, as she herself would tell you, or at least to get a reality show.Living in New York after graduating college—she went to Georgetown University and while there wrote a dating column for the student newspaper and built a website about herself so her family could read her columns–there was nary a media-industry party she didn’t attend or wish to and hardy a camera she wouldn’t smile for.
