Julia Allison is a journalist, entrepreneur, public speaker, social media addict and ostensible "relationship expert," having recently starred in BRAVO's "Miss Advised." In other words, she owns more self-help books than you. Formerly a nationally syndicated technology and social media columnist and relationship columnist at ELLE.com, Allison has published several hundred dating columns for AM New York, Time Out New York, Cosmopolitan and has written for Newsweek, The Chicago Tribune, New York magazine, Men's Health, Seventeen, Teen Vogue and The New York Post, among others. She has also made hundreds of appearances as a commentator, expert and host on NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, VH1 and MTV. Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, she graduated with a spectacularly unprofitable government degree from Georgetown University, lived in New York for six years, then headed back to Chicago for a year of gorging on deep dish pizza before she moved to LA, where she is probably right now as you read this being forced to discuss people's screenplays. Her father is still waiting for her to get a "real job" with health insurance. You can find her on Twitter @JuliaAllison and on Facebook.com/JuliaAllison, where, in her weaker moments, she writes and deletes humble brags to make herself feel better. What, like you've never done that?! Oh.
