Kate Gosselin: I Need a Man ... Who Can Put Up With My Kids!

EXCLUSIVE

Kate Gosselin is looking for love ... but first, they gotta be able to handle the 8 that go along with it.

Kate was out in NYC promoting her return to TLC with "Kate Plus 8" when she mused about the type of man she's looking for (HINT: basically the opposite of Jon)

She also describes her perfect first date ... and the kids aren't in the picture.
