Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she feels she is “ready” to begin dating again after not wanting to for a “long time”.
The Friends star spoke openly about her love life during a show on the SiriusXM podcast Lunch with Bruce with host Bruce Bozzi, after she was asked whether she is dating anybody.
While Aniston said she is not dating anyone currently, as she hasn’t had time and “no one of importance has hit [her] radar yet,” she said that she feels ready to “share” herself with another person.
“I think it’s time,” the actor said. “I think I’m ready to share myself with another. I didn’t want to for a long time, and I loved really being my own woman without being a part of a couple.
“I’ve been a part of a couple since I was 20. So there was something really nice about taking the time.”
During the conversation, the 52-year-old, who restated that she is not open to dating apps such as Raya or Tinder, also shared the qualities that are important to her in a partner, such as humour and generosity.
“The ease at which the conversation flows the first time, that’s kind of a good indicator. Confidence, but not cockiness. Humour, please, I beg of you, beg of you,” Aniston said. “Generous, kind to people. You know, it’s just very few necessities.”
Aniston was previously married to fellow actor Brad Pitt for five years before the pair divorced in 2005. She was also married to Justin Theroux for more than two years, however, the couple separated in 2018 after more than seven years together.
