She's been single since the death of her wildlife warrior hubby, Steve Irwin, 12 years ago.

"If you're looking for love, may this be the year that you find it. #DatingSunday" the mum of Bindi, 19, and Robert, 14, wrote.

"Terri turns 54 this year and she feels it's now or never if she is going to meet Mr Right," a friend told the mag. "As far as she's concerned, the search starts now."

Fans also think it's a sign she's ready to fall in love again, with many sharing their hopes with the American.

"May you find it as well," one wrote in response, while another said they really hoped she found herself a new man too.

Terri was married to crocodile hunter Steve for 14 years before his sudden death in 2006.
