Kate Gosselin
Wants A Mature Man

Kate Plus 8 reality star Kate Gosselin reveals what she is looking for in a man -- and those under the age of 40 need not apply! The busy mom of eight has been called many things -- but "cougar" is not one of them.

Kate Gosselin is single... and ready to mingle. The 36-year-old mother of eight told People that she is "not dating" but is "open to the option" of a relationship with a more mature man.

"I want somebody who is older, at least in their 40s," Gosselin says. "I can't be bothered with these little boys."

The reality mom had been rumored to be seeing her bodyguard, Steve Neild, who is estimated to be in his late 50s, however, she has never confirmed the two have a personal relationship.

"It would be really great to find somebody in real life who can handle the stress around here and who can love my kids the way I do," she reveals. "I want someone who is strong and smart and driven. I think those are the best qualities."

"I'm at the point where I'm like, 'Okay, there's got to be somebody out there who would work,'" Gosselin says. "If it's meant to be, it'll be. And if not, then whatever. I'm happy as I am."

What about her ex-hubby Jon Gosselin? She reveals that things have leveled off between them. "It's just naturally gotten more peaceful, which is good," she admitted. "He's working now, which is great. He has somewhere else to put his attention, which is good."

Gosselin, whose show Kate Plus 8 comes back to TLC on Monday, admits she is too busy to worry about being alone.

"I think everyone who is single worries that they'll grow old alone," she admits. "But I don't have a lot of time to worry about it."

"Picture is worth ten thousand words." Nice couple at the beginning. The most lovely pictures are the ones when Kate was pregnant. The wife, the mother with on her side a caring husband and father of her kids. She blew all that away being more concern about being with her body gard and being famous. She forgot to whom she was related to. I would have fight for my husband and keep my family instead. Money can't buy happiness. After "all" Jon was a good father for his children.

Perhaps little boys are tired of dating insanely naggy girls who can't figure out how to stfu because they're too stupid?

And why, pray tell, would a mature man, ever want *her?* She'd best stick to boys.

And why, pray tell, would a truly mature man ever want *her?* She'd best stick to boys, methinks.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Kate wants a more mature partner, but she is not that mature herself. She is very much a "me" person. Marriage is a partnership and if it was easy anybody could do it. I have been married for 38 years and not all of them have been easy. We both (after many bad episodes) realized that marriage is something that requires a lot... of work. If she and Jon are not willing to put in the work then they will never find a partner. It sounds like neither of them are willing to work at it. I am sorry for the example they are setting for their children. Good luck!!
