(CBS) Kate Gosselin has been unlucky in love since divorcing her husband Jon in 2009. She talked about what it's like being a 36-year-old single mother while on "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers" this week.

"The odds are so against me," she said about meeting a guy. "One mom, eight kids ... I am lonely. I clean up the house, put the kids to bed, and there I sit."

Gosselin isn't giving up hope just yet though. "Ideally I'd find that person," she said.

The mom-of-eight told host Drew Pinsky she doesn't need a man to support her financially. She just wants the companionship and someone who can co-parent her children.

When asked what has become of her ex and father of her kids, Gosselin said, "He basically lives his life and I live mine."

"It's more peaceful," she added. "Probably not anything that I'm doing differently. Possibly he's working now and so he feels like he's living a regular life again and maybe a little happier with himself, so that boils down to peace between us. The kids are now okay going there."
