I think there are an awful lot of assumptions being made about the ex and the realtionship. JP was evidently devastated to the point that his family was very concerned (it seems) and obviously they were not on the same page in the relationship.

If this girl keeps her mouth shut, no one will know who she is. If his ex is the same Laney Crowell from the articles, she is certainly an interesting character and I got a chuckle out of the articles. If she is not that person - I still think the articles are interesting - gutsy girls

Not about them.

I assumed this was JP former gf if the tweet is correct

ETA: if this isnt JP ex-gf, it is still interesting reading

LOL wow!!!! DABA sounds scandalous - can't believe people are starting to put their dating lives out there and talk clearly about their gold-digging ways like that... you're right interesting reading indeed. Also interesting that DABA girl would date JP -- which would mean he's doing quite well for himself...? (or he wasn't doing so well for himself so she "blew him off" in her words)
I found it humorous that she responded she "doesn't kiss and tell" to possenista who asked her if she was referring to herself and JP in her tweet about JP falling in love without regard to reality when she did evidently "kiss and tell" on a regular basis on this DABA blog!!

So if your monthly Bergdorf’s allowance has been halved and bottle service has all but disappeared from your life, lighten your heart with laughter and email your stories to dating a banker anonymous

a few more snipps

Survival of the fittest, that’s my motto, or was until my FBF broke up with me. He explained my termination as follows:

“Princess, we need to talk. How do I explain this? You are a costly investment. During better economic times, I was happy to spend a little extra to buy American, but now we are all being forced to make tough decisions and, well, bottom line: I can quite literally get more bang for my buck if I invest with a foreign model instead. Do you understand what I’m trying to tell you?”

And that my fellow DABA girls is how my girlfriend services were outsourced to an underage Russian model who was willing to provide services admittedly substantially equivalent to my own but at well-below market value and without the regulatory hassle. F*cking Mercenary.

I thought the whole DABA thing is something that Laney and her lawyer friend just made up for publicity and kicks; not like it's an actual club with members who met regularly. And the NYT got snookered into believing it was legitimate and then had to retract the article.

She's obviously a bright woman, but sounds extremely jaded, kind of cold and bitchy, and basically out for a good time and to promote herself. It's a typical NYC type I'm well aware of, from living in Manhattan forever myself. She also seems like the type who would be into playing a lot of games with the guys she dates. Fun and exciting, but not the kind of girl you settle down with, not that she couldn't change in a few years (she's 27 I think). From where I'm sitting, JP is far too sweet and sincere a guy for her, but she probably thinks that he found her irresistable and therefore, couldn't possibly be interested in a sweet, less sophisticated girl like Ashley.

Yeah, DABA was just a joke but the two of them really sound like it's their lifestyle. I wonder if they know Julia Allison as they're all of the same ilk. Ugh. Ashley is nothing like that and he's so much better off with her sweet, sensitive, and caring nature than the Julia Allison/Laney types of women who are complete gold diggers and love the games.

I think you may be right -- she has a new blog out where she gives fashion advice... quite ridiculous that NYT did a feature on them and were forced to retract it... ohh some ppl these days do anything for exposure and to get 'ahead' Rolling Eyes -- it's almost like a REALITY blog -- it's just not on TV...

kind of telling the JP was dating these types in his past...so glad he found someone as genuine and real as he is to be with! Remember JP's comment about how the NY dating scene has gotten a bit stale? No wonder he would say that if he was dating the Laney types :Nod:

OMG Julia Allison is exactly who I thought of when I read this story in the 1st place and IMO that's who these girls were aspiring to be! I totally remember this story when it came out but I'd forgotten the names of the people involved so it didn't even click at first. They sort of want to be Sex & The City next gen and they're kind of about social climbing.

No wonder JP gave Glamour that quote about no more drama!

I definitely have opinions about that whole scene in that it's one I've made sure I steer clear of being a New Yorker. Though I can understand why it might have some initial allure for some people. If JP really said that scene had gotten stale like emusha's saying then I totally get it, I've seen friends go through that whole thing. I always liked JP for being a hometown boy but now suddenly it feels like I understand him even better as far as being able to put things into context LOL. I know that sounds crazy. Ashley's not that kind of girl at all from what we've seen and she'd be so much better for him!

Might be why he falls so hard and so fast for AShley. She is like no-one he has ever met. After that, she'd be too good to be true.

Her parents live in a very wealthy suburb here in Chicago and she's friends with the Lettuce/Melman family that Jed is also friends with so she's around a lot, and I've seriously never heard a kind word about her. no no

JP is so much better off with a sweet, nerdy girl who doesn't care about his money and jumps around squealing when she's happy. LOL. They're both very lucky to have found each other. :nuzzle:
