She reveals in the season premiere that she usually relies on her ‘physical appearance’ to meet men, which is why she decided to try this different method of dating.
‘That’s one thing I do that I shouldn’t. And that’s what gets me in a lot of trouble… Where it’s like, “boom, bam, thanks ma’am,” she says during her intro.
‘It’s not what I want and it’s not what I’m looking for, but for some reason I vibe it on dating apps.
‘I have people sliding into my DMs just asking [sex] and it stinks.’
Despite wanting to slow things down in her dating life, Lisa isn’t throwing away her sex toys.
The Perth native, who lives with her mother, is matched with podcaster Patrick, 31, and railway worker Matt, 32.

As she learns about her struggles via text, a ‘massage gun’ and two pink and purple vibrators are visible on a shelf in her bedroom.

“I couldn’t get you out of my head last night,” she texts Patrick.
‘I woke up more excited than usual,’ he replies.
Lisa tells producers in an on-camera piece that she ‘tried to meditate a bit’ before going to bed, but her mind was racing and she only had a few hours of sleep.
“So I tried to slow down my thoughts by touching myself,” she adds with a laugh.
Lisa didn’t hold back in asking Patrick a very intimate question in the morning. “Did you touch yourself?” she asks him, to which he responds with a zipper emoji

Patrick, who is tall and handsome with dark hair, seems to make fun of Lisa’s interests, including meditation.
‘Most of the time I’m out killing things,’ he tells her. ‘I don’t watch TV shows… I’d rather watch a TED Talk.’
Lisa tells a producer that she regretted choosing Patrick, whom she nicknamed Patty, and wondered if things would have been different if she had chosen Matt.
“I feel like the vibe isn’t there,” she says. “At this point, if I didn’t move in with him tomorrow, I probably wouldn’t give him another date.”
As the date progresses, the pair dive deeper into getting to know each other and eventually develop an emotional connection.
They share a hot and heavy kiss at the table with ‘a little bite’ before Patrick asks Lisa where she lived and suggests they go back to her place.
