Jennifer Garner wants a boyfriend now that her ex Ben Affleck has gone public with his new girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus. It’s no secret that many exes feel jealous when they see their ex-partner hooking up with a new love interest. And for Jennfier Garner, it has to hurt twice as much seeing Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus’ romance make headlines in all of the major media outlets and publications. That’s why she wants to find love to.
Of course, a lot of people believe that it will only be a matter of time before Jennifer Garner is spotted with a new man by her side. If Ben Affleck can move on, then Jennifer surely can, too. But for Jennifer, it won’t be so easy. She takes care of her three children most of the time. She’ll be very careful about who she decides to date, especially if it’s someone from the entertainment industry. She doesn’t want to make the same mistakes she’s made in the past or do something regrettable with her new man. She’s got her children and their future to look out for.
As someone who is always taking care of her kids, helping with homework and school projects and shuffling them from one extra-curricular activity to another, she doesn’t have time for dates or one-night stands. Many believe Jennifer needs someone who can keep up with her and her hectic schedule and demands.
There’s a very good chance that Ben sees things differently. After all, multiple reports indicated that he cheated on Jennifer with his children’s nanny back in 2015. Ben might not be looking to get into a serious relationship. In fact, a lot of fan wouldn’t be surprised if Ben is just casually hooking up with Lindsay at this point. Ben is either doing one of two things: rebounding from Jennifer or looking for someone to simply have fun with.
So far Ben Affleck has not made any comments about his new romance with Lindsay Shookus or his Jennifer Garner divorce for that matter. Time will only tell how long Ben and Lindsay will last, though. Now that he’s a free man, he wants to have fun, go wild and relive his old Bachelor days. For Jennifer though, she might be looking for a serious boyfriend more than a meaningless hook-up.
