Australian actor Josh Lawson has signed up to a popular international dating site.

The 32 year old was left heartbroken last year (12) when his girlfriend Rachael Taylor dumped him for fashion photographer Lincoln Pilcher.

But Lawson has found new hope by creating a profile page on in a bid to find eligible single girls living in his area.

A representative for the actor insists he is not on the site for personal reasons but is using it for research on his latest film, The Little Death, which focuses on sex and fetishes among modern day couples.
