Jen, you may have found your problem: You don’t like dating! At least you haven’t given up hope. But BFFs, do YOU think Jen will ever find her dream man?
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t exactly been lucky in the love department. In fact after a failed marriage to Brad Pitt, and dating men like player John Mayer and now-married Vince Vaughn, the 42-year-old actress now embraces the single life.
“But no, I’m not a big fan of dating,” Jen tells the U.K.’s Red magazine. “You have to normalize it! You would die otherwise.”
“I have dinner with male friends and it’s instantly, ‘That’s the new man,'” Jen explains. “The phone is ringing off the hook from your publicist saying, ‘Did you have dinner with so and so?’ — and it’s ‘Yes, I did and no, I’m not.’ So you sort of just meet people.”
But Jen hasn’t given up hope. She’s still hoping to meet “the love of her life.”
And Jen has a reasonable outlook on love. “The truth is, you can’t just have the love, either,” she says. “You have to have a balance in life. You also have to have your own personal love: what inspires you, what excites you when you wake up in the morning.”
Most of all, though, Jen knows that friends are the most important assets in a gal’s life.
“Where would you be without friends?” Jen asks. “Where would you be without people to pick you up when you need lifting? Your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.”
