No relationships for now! Jennifer Aniston recently spoke about her dating life and her feelings on possibly finding love again.
“Am I on OkCupid? No. I have zero time, to be honest,” the 50-year-old told Harper’s Bazaar in an interview published on Monday, May 6. “My focus has been [on my show First Ladies], so dating has not been one of my first priorities. I feel like whatever [romance] looks like, it will present itself, and it’s not about seeking it out, you know?”
However, while the Friends alum isn’t exactly spending hours on various dating apps, that doesn’t mean that she has closed the book on love. “When it comes knocking, it’s going to be welcomed. I’m not like, ‘No, I’m done with that. That’s never going to happen again,’” she said.
“My time on this planet has been about … It hasn’t looked a certain way. It’s my way; it’s what I’ve been given this round. But I would say I don’t find any of my past has given me a reason to harden up and create a shell or a wall of, ‘No more, that’s it, I’m closed,’” the actress explained. But the We’re the Millers star doesn’t believe people are meant to be with only one person.
“I think we have many soulmates. I don’t think there’s one and one only. I think we have soul clusters,” Jennifer said. “I’ve had some of my friends for 35 years. I think we’ve all made some sort of unconscious agreement. It’s like when certain groups of people meet, they form a little soul cluster — a sort of common group of souls who have been put together.”
When Jennifer eventually does start dating again, there are some traits her partner will have to have. “A sense of humor. Strong sense of self-worth, confidence, kindness, generosity. Good people surrounding them,” the Golden Globes winner said.
Jennifer, who was married to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005, and then to Justin Theroux (they split in 2015), once talked very positively about her relationships, despite of how they ended. “My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion,” she told Elle. “And when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore.”
