Hopping back on the dating saddle is never easy. Kate Gosselin, star of Kate Plus 8, has been divorced from Jon Gosselin for 8 years, and now she's ready to give love another chance on the new TLC series, Kate Plus Date.

"I'm nervous, I'm excited, and I'm forcing myself to do this," she told People Magazine about the upcoming series.

"As we're talking about Mady and Cara going off to college which is becoming more and more of a reality, it's gonna happen, it almost became like a worry for them, too, like 'Mommy, you're gonna be all alone soon,' " Kate added. "But it was very apparent, now that they're older and talking about dating and how they're all gonna get married someday ... it became apparent: they want someone for me. They want me to have somebody in my life."

Kate is looking forward to this new chapter in her life, and is actually more comfortable dating in front of a camera than dating online! When it comes to the type of guy she's looking for, she has a few boxes her potential mate will have to check.

"I do want someone with a set career, who is confident. A grown-up with their own life, their own agenda, who knows who they are. If someone travels for work, that would be great, because I'm used to being on my own and being self-sufficient."
