Yulia: Another one bite the dust

Seriously? Why can't Poofy just shut it and let it unfold (she need to tattoo that shit on her FOREHEAD).

She twit:

Date likes me. He told me I could Twitter this.

Home, FTW! (Okay, he dropped me off at 2:05 am, if you want to be all accurate about it.) There will be a second date with this one.

@FreedomFactory - First date! Totally blind! (Friend set up) I literally knew NOTHING about him until tonight, other than his first name.
about 5 hours ago from web in reply to FreedomFactory

@mickhagen - Can't! I don't think he'd be into that. He's 37, never been married, and a hedge fund guy. No photos! (Yet.)

  1. about that: do these matchmaker things really only work in one direction, that is, guy picks from menu and "orders" date? because even if it is not an escort service, julia's constant being called for dates really does not sound much different. why does she never call them and picks someone? at first, i was finding the repeated allusions to her being pimped out somewhat uncalled for, but having watched this for a few days, i now see what you mean.

  2. AND double post - sorry, not my day.

  3. Who are these douchebag guys replying to her Tweets? They come off as creepy and she does when she replies to Demi and Ashton's Tweets. Only Julia answers them!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Are you people still at this? Well, I'm not really surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I thought she HATED finance guys. LOL. And "hedge fund guy" sure doesn't mean what it used to. Good luck with that.

  6. Women who date bankers and hedge fund assholes make me ill. These people gutted the world economy and are now looting the U.S. Treasury. I'm sure the fact Mr. Big worked for A.I.G Financial wouldn't change the opinion and desires of three quarters of the women in NYC - a city that used to have something interesting to contribute.

    Sounds like a perfect match for the souless Julia or Vapid Mary. Grow up. Read a newspaper.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yeah for the "hedge fund guys" thing, check the existence and subsequent tearing down of the women of DABA "dating a banker anonymous" or whatever. She did say she hated finance guys in the past (ranted quite extensively too) so it's funny that she has appeared to state no such reservations now. Then again, she's still going on dates and she's already been with two doctors... no luck there Toolia?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love that she just has to TELL THE WORLD, via twitter, that he's a hedge fund guy $$$$. Classy, JA. Also shows that you know little about the markets and how hedge fund works. My bro is a "hedge fund guy" and, let me tell you, it's not very lucrative, exciting, or even special these days.

    And, no JA, I'm not jealous. I have my man.

  9. What's the matter, Don Juan? Lots of bad experiences where you got rejected in favor of a REAL man making REAL money? Poor baby!

  10. 3 things:

    1. Amazing that Julia tweets "he liked me!" as if that's the only thing that matters. There is no "I liked him." Oh no. Because we wouldn't want to stop and consider whether we like someone or not. But If they like YOU for some miraculous reason, run with it. Stand on the top of the internet mountain top and shout it out loud.

    2. Telling my date about Twitter. "So you write something and you're fully exposed?" - him

    This is especially brilliant. Yes Julia, you invented blogging (oh, i'm sorry you invented "lifecasting.") And you invented Twittering. And facebook, vimeo, and tumblr by proxy too. And you invented oversharing. And you invented the concept creating an illusion of transparency but actually being the most obnoxious phony there ever was.

    3. It's always healthy to bank on a wonderful future on the first date. Really. Really. Really. Healthy.

    Anddddddd scene!

  11. Date likes me. He told me I could Twitter this.

    Okay, a guy shrugging his shoulders and going "Yeah, sure" when you ask if you can twitter this, when he probably has NO IDEA what Twitter is? Not explicit permission.

    ReplyDelete
  12. One more thing. She can't talk date any more "tech" guys not only because she's been through them all, but they can see right through her bullshit! Do you think any tech dude is going to marvel at her world of tweeting and tumbling? A hedge fund guy, on the other hand, is not going to roll as deep in the world of Web 2.0., Valleway, etc. So it's easy to pull the wool over his eyes and talk about making your "fuck you money" by way of phony-transparency.

    Girl is so hungry for a husband it's pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  13. And the funny part of it all is that she won't ever get the type of husband she wants, but the type she wholly deserves (if ever, that is). So sad.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The pre-blind date crew at Stone Rose: FoxNews’ Courtney Friel, CBS morning news anchor Michelle Gielan, and [redacted hedge fund’s] Ann Browning. Love these girls!! They screened my poor date, who took it all in stride (points for that!)

    From her blog. You know what? If you can't just introduce your friends by their first name and leave it at that, that speaks volumes about your desperate need to be associated with people more successful than you. Know what's funny, though? NOBODY posts photos of her on their blog and says "This is me with TONY Dating columnis/NS Founder Julia Allison." It reminds me of that scene in My Best Friend's Wedding when Julia Roberts is Chasing after her BF Dermot Mulroney as he tries to catch his runaway bride to be Cameron Diaz. Roberts is on the phone with her friend Rupert Everett, whining for the umpteenth time that Mulroney is going to marry Diaz and not her, and Everett says, "You're chasing him, he's chasing her, but nobody is chasing you. Get it???"

    ReplyDelete
  15. Also, that photo of her in her pink polka dotted PJ's sitting in the chair next to some huge stuffed teddy bear?

    Okay, seriously, I hate doing the whole psych evaluation thing but...what. the fuck. Girlfriend, you're pushing 30. Grow up. That's the reason why men hate sleeping at your apartment. It's decorated like a 10 year olds. It's creepy and reeks of someone with a repressed sexuality and potential sexual issues. Get to a shrink ASAP.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Also, does this pseudo high profile welcome committee convey any other message to the actual dating partner than "trying too hard to impress"?
    Men have a surprisingly well developed sense for picking up on these things and, as we all know, are not beneath using this to their benefit.

    ReplyDelete
  17. They screened my poor date, who took it all in stride (points for that!)

    Okay, sorry, but that guy - the one who met her at 10:00 at night - was going to put up with anything as long as he thought he could get laid. Men do that.

    Bottom line, and at her age she should know this by now, men who make dates on Friday nights at 10pm or later are not looking to get to know you. They're looking for sex. I don't get her manic need to go on 4 dates a week, other than she feels like she has to so she can blog about it.Maybe if she put half that energy she puts into dating into working out, she wouldn't be living in sweat pants and tutus.

  18. Oh, Paul-ia! Stop! You're killing me!! You're so witty!!!

  19. Miss Cast, aren't Paul and you both trolls who come here to tell us how jealous and vapid we all are?

    ReplyDelete
  20. "Paul",

    Still coming by here to see what we're still saying? Why am I not surprised?

    And then commenting twice? Why am I not surprised?

    Dismissing a valid argument as a jealous hater who is poor and single? Why am I not surprised?

    Not understanding that some people might be proud of having depth or a reason for people to like them other than "REAL" money? Why am I not surprised?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Its not real money. That's the fucking point. You stiff. Go get a pedicure.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love that she interpreted "I haven't had a horrible time!" as HE LIKES ME!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Christian,

    Did you recently move to NYC? I'm a JA HATER but lots of dates, parties & events take place at 10pm on Fridays in New York City. You're wrong re: booty calls.

    Stick to the things we actually know about JA and NS. There's enough real and verified crap, lies, bs, and stupidity to criticize without making up pseudo stories about what we think happened and presenting it as an absolute fact.

    ReplyDelete
  24. lots of dates, parties & events take place at 10pm on Fridays in New York City. You're wrong re: booty calls.

    Sure, lots of dates, parties, etc start well after 10pm on Fridays. But first blind dates set up by friends or matchmakers? Not so much. If a guy sets up a first date - a blind date - at 10/11pm he either is so busy that he doesn't have time to have an actual relationship and/or he's looking to get laid. Anybody over the age of 25 knows that. The only woman who runs out to meet a guy she's never met before at 10 or 11 at night is either looking to get laid herself (totally fine) or desperate. The only reason she's accepting these "dates" are because these guys are doctors, lawyers, hedge fund guys. If Joey Broke Wannabe Actor asked her out for 11pm, you can be sure she wouldn't be hopping out of her pink polka dotted PJ's for him.


    This whole blog is speculation and assumption. Climb off your high horse and you'll see that.Don't like my opinions? You can skip past them and read everything else.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dates, parties and events that likely aren't pre-arranged (or haphazardly thrown together, what have you) in the fashion these "dates" appear to be. If I were paying for the services of a *matchmaker* (not to say JA is, I'm sure it's part of the "for press" exchange), I'd be questioning the latest apparently late-night specific dates, and I know how the NYC scene works.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Blueprintthongs....as someone who lived in NYC for 10 years (basically for all of my 20's) and understands that things don't start until much later...I still think 10pm for a first date is pushing it. 9pm or even 9:30, no eyebrows raised there, not at all. 10pm... there's a subtext there, sorry to say. 10pm with a friend or 10pm with a boyfriend or hookup, that's fine. 10pm with someone you're just going out with for the first time? He's hoping to up his chances that it leads to sex, basically he's hoping you're easy.

    And the fact that JA is looking for someone more marriage material than just some fun fling, and the fact that she always let's us know what a "prude" she is - she seems like the kind of girl who would turn down a 10pm date. That's why people are criticizing her. She's trying to do the Madonna/Whore thing but putting the Whore before the Madonna.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Christan and Anon 3:41, it's certainly sounds last minute and that's been the case with previous dates. The guy she dated on birthday weekend was last minute also. All three NS girls are "inventory" for the matchmaker(s) as stated in their TMI video. Meghan may not be, but MA and JA stated it as fact. They could be last minute, replacement dates for other options that fell through? Or maybe these guys pay to have dates ready on a moment's notice? That's rather tacky and not very "matchmaker" in the truest sense of the word.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That 11pm date was last minute, according to Julia. Last minute? So, this guy called the matchmaker and asked to be set up on a blistery Sunday night because he felt like meeting a future wife? Let's say the woman originally scheduled to meet this guy got sick and that's why it was last minute. The guy couldn't reschedule??? If this woman was supposed to be a potential match for him, then why not just reschedule given the weather? Or did he just have an itch that he wanted scratched and he called that matchmaker to help him scratch it?

    That smacks, to me at least, of a man calling an escort service and ordering up a girl for the night.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's what I was say, Christan. It doesn't seem at all like a "matchmaker" service. It's like a quite dating/hook up service. No wonder this matchmaker hasn't produced that many weddings-she's sending her clients on 10/11pm first dates.

    ReplyDelete
  30. If I were the matchmakers I'd require that Julia not blog about her dates in any way. She's making these services look bad.

  32. Oops. JA did say that this date was a friend set up. Let's say JA requested they meet at 10...it is possible. What message is she sending? Dating is not a priority, you (the date) are not my priority but I'll fit you in for a night of free entertainment and no sex, at 10pm, after I've done all my important fauxtographing for the day.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Christan, didn't you also go out at 11pm on a date that same night with a guy that texted you saying you could come meet him to hang out, yet you twittered about how unclassy JA is for going out on a date at 10pm?

    How do you reconcile your hypocrisy?

    Umm..no. But weird that you condemn us for jabbering about Julia when you're obviously someone who commits to memory my day to day activities that I write about on a private, not public, blog. So you're so anxious to know what I have to say that you set set up a fake facebook profile to access it? What's that you said about hypocrisy?

    If you read that particular post, you would have seen that 1. It wasn't the first time I had met that guy and 2. It wasn't a date, and I stated as much.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Paul...how do you reconcile your hypocrisy of commenting here to slam us for commenting here to slam Julia?

    Please do tell.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Come on. So obvious who Paul is. And it's not Julia. It rhymes with Hairy Kary.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fairy Gary???? I love him!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I agree with [redacted] NonEntity: Come on, we all have friends, right? So which one of our friends would set us up on a blind date and tell us "literally nothing about them but their first name". So, I call b.s. on "friend". Another JA lie. Julia=inventory, not friend.

  40. Scary's Obviously Photoshopped iChat PicMarch 7, 2009 at 4:59 PM

    Scary Mary. She's a blogger who created a blog to ridicule Mary but then switched to ridiculing Julia. She started critiquing Julia because she thought it would get her Tumblr deleted like all the others and she could get attention. She wore out her welcome here. She's come back under different names, all pretending to be disgusted by this blog and being trollish in general. Yawn.com.

    ReplyDelete
  41. And, again Julia demonstrates another step on the "Desperate before turning 30 hit list" (in fact, she's writing the list!
    Last time it was bringing a guy she just met (at 11 oclock on a Sunday night!) to her pink little girl apartment to pet her baby surrogate, take his picture and post it!
    This time, she explains to a guy what twitter means broadcasting your personal thoughts to thousands of random strangers, and then asks him "can I twitter that you like me"? Desperation, your name is Julia Allison Baugher.
    No doubt he didn't get laid as hoped/expected but is probably having a riot telling his friends about the looney toons he met last night.

    ReplyDelete
  42. why does she never call them and picks someone?

    Because she's not paying the service fee. The men are the ones who pay, at least for most matchmakers. I don't think the men "pick" women. I think they tell the matchmaker what their ideal mate is like and the matchmaker then sets them up.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Paul is one of three people:

    Julia
    Scary Mary
    Kelly Kreth

    My bet is on Scary Mary

  44. I'm still waiting for Paul or whoever he/she is to reconcile his hypocrisy. Paul? You're slip is showing.

    Wha the fa?? I've never said a word about comments or commenters on this site (well, except to commend a few for their brilliance). I save my mal mots for you-know-who (you are).

    What are you smoking? Pass it over.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Scary Mary trolls here occasionally under various names. When nobody responds, she creates a sock puppet to "support" herself. Then she pretends that one of her legions of fans over here sent her an email warning that she was being trashed by us nasty RBNS commenters. Then she comes her to write a tl;dr comment "defending" her shiny reputation.

    There is definitely more than one Paul-troll, but today I think it's SM.

  47. Internet Snark MachineMarch 7, 2009 at 6:36 PM

    I was loving how nobody took the troll bait for a while and "Paul" had to try a more direct tactic, mentioning another commenter by name.

    Anon 2:29, in defense of Miss Cast, she was snarking on Paul; she's not a troll. Maybe you're thinking of Miss Matched? Also not really a troll, but a person who likes Julia and expresses an opposing viewpoint here.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I apologize Miss Cast. I confused the to user names.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yeah, i think Miss Cast is a Gawker commenter. Miss Matched on the other hand was here a while ago supporting Julia Allison Baugher, but has not been back in awhile.

    But what do i know -- i was without the interweb for over 30 hours recently!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't be too critical of Julia here. I requested that, as a dating columnist, she actually write some content on dating. Fine, she is now doing that. The problem is that the content sucks. Can't she find a balance between violating her date's privacy and sharing a little something about the mechanics and context of the date? I know that it might be hard to strike such a balance; however, IT'S HER FUCKING JOB (please read w/ a John Malkovich intonation). Anyway, this shit-show is just about over as Julia is moving back towards TV-land, Meghan is AWOL, Mary is in denial.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Julia is Plan B-ing it. She's looking for a boyfriend/husband she can move in with and leech off of. That's why she's on a manic dating frenzy. She doesn't "need" to settle down nor is she a slave to her biological clock. She is, however, broke and in need of shelter and a bankroll.

    ReplyDelete
  52. She's also "appears" to be reconnecting with media buds and filmed commentary for a VH1 feature this week. Mary and Meghan have stated that their funds are seriously "dwindling." Mary is living New Canaan with her older gay buddy. Julia is getting free dinner by working as "inventory" for a matchmaker. Maybe she's hoping to buffer her meager TONY salary with some media work again.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Anon @ 6:46: Exactly, if you claim to be a professional writer then write like one! Follow the basic rules, like, you know, have a POINT you want to make, just to name one. It pains me to see a perfectly good opportunity to compose something remotely interesting wasted when I read this "hahaha, look at my tv-famous date-screen girlfriends"-nonsense. But as I am not paid as a writing coach here, I will just play out the piece in my mind. This is what truly annoys me, though, that this person has the AUDACITY to claim she's a journalist, maybe even author and then is not even ashamed to produce crap like this.

    Christan:
    I've been thinking that too. It really looks like the dating binge is more part of an acute survival strategy than exit stragey towards Long Island. Let's face it, she couldn't stand to be "reduced" to being Mrs. (maybe even Mrs. Dr.) X unless Mr. X was so high profile that being his wife alone gave her celebrity status. But I doubt that these guys shop at the profanity fair that is JA.

    ReplyDelete
  54. But I doubt that these guys shop at the profanity fair that is JA.

    Seriously...what is up with her constant cursing at the most inappropriate times? Is it that she wants to seem cool and like one of the boys, while dressing like a 1950's housewife with depression a la January Jones in Mad Men?

    She's definitely dating with the intent of finding someone who will bankroll her or at least let her move in with them. TONY is over. She hasn't written for them in about a month.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm lost.

    What does "tl;dr" mean?

    I know who Scary Mary is. I know who Julia is (obvs) but who is Kelly Kreth?
