Hi Patty, I don't know if Irv is still looking for his soul mate, but if he is, the perfect candidate is sitting here right now. I am intelligent, well educated, and I love dogs. I can look like a princess when I dress up, but I can also get down and dirty. I, too, love gardening. I lost my husband 3 years ago, and I'm turning 60 this month (but i really dont look or feel it). I want to date but it is really scary. I actually found Irv attractive years ago when Denise had her reality show, so this match seems almost made in heaven. So, if he's still looking, let me know. If not....I'll keep my heart open.
