Clearly, this is my favourite new show!
I was relieved and refreshed to see this Bravo show debut. The premise? Like this blog, Miss Advised follows the disastrous dating lives of… you guessed it… fellow dating experts! No joke!
The divine dating doyennes are:
* Julia Allison, a dating columnist in Los Angeles
* Emily Morse, a sex expert (hello!) in San Francisco
* Amy Laurent, a matchmaker in New York City
All are smart. All are seriously sexy. All are single.
The show follows the gorgeous gals as they negotiate their way through the complexities of dating in the curious, confusing context of modernity. They seem to live in different cities (New York and Los Angeles), yet the story remains the same. The mating minefield obviously exists everywhere. We watch as they experience the heady highs of a great first date and the languishing lows of realizing that their dream date has turned into a douchey dud. We see the similarities in our struggles. Should they be taking the same advice they give their clients, or should they try to navigate through newness and innovation in techniques? The perplexing problem posed is why it’s so much simpler to give advice than to take it. It’s riveting, romantic and freakily familiar as they, the experts, try to negotiate the super scary scene.
I urge all my sexy singletons to check this out. There are so many fabulous women out there with so much to offer and I’m so glad it’s finally being documented on tv.
The only problem with the show? They forgot to include me!
