She visited The Couch with a list of what she says women are doing wrong - and how to find Mr. Right.

"The first 8 weeks, when you meet a guy that you really like, are the most trying times for women to get through," Laurent said. "Women screw things up either in week two or week four. We start panicking, we start getting insecure, we start doubting ourselves, we have sex too soon, we keep texting him and we go crazy, because we're in love."
