New Zealand-born singer Daniel Bedingfield is convinced his second album failed to match the success of his debut disc because his lack of a love life affected his song-writing inspiration.

The IF YOU'RE NOT THE ONE star is disappointed with the sales of his SECOND FIRST IMPRESSION follow-up - but he is beginning to test the dating waters again and even stepped out with a British publicist for six weeks.

The singer says, "I've chosen to love again. I'll get my heart broken again, but it's better than closing it off."

And Bedingfield admits his once flat love-life is starting to hot up.

He adds, "I've had a very rich and varied dating life in the last six months."
