It's never easy for second-time brides or previously married gals who are suddenly thrust back into the choppy waters of the dating pool. The same goes for Kate Gosselin, who is still on that quest for love after six single years since the end of her first marriage. But it sounds like that might change soon — if only she could figure out how this whole dating thing works!
"I don't get it!" Gosselin said of the dating world in People's sneak peek of the new season of her TLC reality show, Kate Plus 8. "It's a completely different world." Yup, the rules have certainly changed since the famous mom last played the dating game! "We had pagers," Gosselin reminded E! News of the throwback gadget that she used to communicate with her past loves. "Remember 143?" she asked. Wait, what?
For those of us who never toted a pager around on our bell bottom belt loops, the numerical sequence stands for "I love you." That's one letter for I, four for love, and three letters for you. Consider it the "bae" of the '90s! A super short phrase you'd text to your sweetheart, to let them know that they are forever on your mind.
Despite the crazy changes in dating technology (wonder if she's on Tinder yet...), Kate and her eight are ready for the new chapter in their lives that's sure to be full of lots of love, noise, and — from the looks of her show's sneak peek — even blind dates! "I'm sure that every single parent who finds themselves eventually dating again would also agree that it's just weird and exciting but strange," said Gosselin. Just let us know when you want us to start planning your second wedding, Kate! We'll be waiting!
