Poor Jen! Her latest romantic suitor is claiming that they’re just – sigh – ‘friends.’

Jennifer Aniston just can’t catch a break when it comes to her love life. She’s either dating a friend’s ex-hubby, like Chris Gartin, or having a man claim she’s just a good ‘friend.’ Sadly, this is the case when it comes to her latest potential love interest, Josh Hopkins.

“I am a Southern gentleman,” the 40-year-old Cougar Town star said after running a triathlon in Malibu, Calif Sept. 12, adding, “So I had to [pay for dinner. We are just friends, I am not dating anyone…I am single.”

He added – quite sensibly – “There are worst people to be in a rumor with! I have other friends I would rather go to dinner with less!”

BOO! We were really rooting for this one! The meet-cute scenario couldn’t have been more perfect – Josh works with Jen’s BFF, Courteney Cox and gets along with Courteney’s hubby, David Arquette. The two could have gone on the best double dates EVER! But here’s holding out hope that Josh and Jen will at least – one day – graduate to the level of friends…with benefits.
