Once burned, twice shy?

One First Dates diner is back for sec­onds, writes TIFFANY DUNK

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

SHE’S back! Af­ter fail­ing to score a se­cond date first time around, Lau­ren Parisi re­turns to the First Dates restau­rant this week.

The 28- year old mar­ket­ing man­ager po­larised view­ers in the de­but episode of the se­ries, hav­ing – among other first date no-no s–de­manded a three­year plan from her be­mused din­ner com­pan­ion.

“As Kim Kar­dashian says, ‘ If you don’t have neg­a­tive feed­back, then you’re not do­ing it prop­erly’,” she tells TV Guide.

“[ Corbin turn­ing down a se­cond date] didn’t af­fect me in the slight­est .”

Hav­ing felt she’d been matched up with some­one who “wasn’t a great fit” for her first din­ner, Parisi says she felt more nerves en­ter­ing the restau­rant doors se­cond time around. “There was all this pres­sure,” she says. “I was con­cerned about what per­son they were go­ing to put for­ward this time – be­cause they put for­ward the wrong per­son ( be­fore) when I told them what I was look­ing for. I was quite ner­vous.”

But de­spite the nerves and the pos­si­bil­ity of a se­cond knock- back, Parisi says she never con­tem­plated say­ing no to com­ing back for an­other shot at love. “You only get one chance in life,” Parisi rea­sons. “You get one shot so get in there, run with it and see what hap­pens. That’s why I came back.”
