Jennifer Aniston is ready for an old-school romance.
The Morning Show actor dished on her love life during an appearance on the SiriusXM podcast Lunch with Bruce. After confirming that she is not currently seeing anyone, the star revealed that she is ready to start dating again.
“No one of importance has hit my radar yet. But I think it’s—I think it’s time. I think I’m ready to share myself with another,” she said.

The Friends actor has remained publicly single since her split from ex-husband Justin Thoreaux in 2018, though there have been a couple of dating rumours. On the podcast, however, Aniston revealed that she has enjoyed the time to herself.
“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,” she explained.
After asking host Bruce Bozzi if he had anyone to set her up with, Aniston clarified that she wants to meet someone the old-fashioned way. “No Tinders and no Rayas, please. I’m an old-school girl,” she said.
The notably private actor also opened up about what she looks for in a relationship. When asked about the first thing she looks for in a man, Aniston said that she focuses on chemistry. “[The first kiss] is pretty important. That, and also the ease at which the conversation flows the first time,” she said. “That’s kind of a good indicator. Confidence, but not a cockiness. Humor, please, I beg of you, beg of you. Generous. Kind to people. Just very few necessities.”
She also noted the importance of staying in shape. “Fitness is important and not just about, like, how you look. I want to be around here for a long time and not be in a wheelchair when I’m 80,” she added.
Though Aniston prefers meeting in person over swiping anonymously, she’s taking it slow when it comes to in-person socializing. The star skipped this year’s Emmy Awards, despite the Friends reunion being nominated, revealing in a Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance ahead of the ceremony that she isn’t jumping into overly crowded post-quarantine appearances just yet. “This is a big step for me to just be here. I’m just [taking] baby steps,” she said.
