AceShowbiz - While Ben Affleck reportedly ends his fling with Shauna Sexton, Jennifer Garner is in contrary going back into the dating game. Single and ready to mingle, Jennifer is said to be dating a mystery man now that her divorce from Ben is finalized.
"Jen has been wanting to move on and now when the divorce is finalized, she finally can," a source tells PEOPLE. "She has had no choice but to be patient since Ben needed to finish his rehab treatment. But she was ready to sign the papers."
The insider says that the "Peppermint" actress "doesn't want to be single for the rest of her life, so she is open to dating." The source continues, "She has been on dates, but it seems she isn't serious about a guy. As always, she is mostly focused on her kids and her job."
Another source claims that "she hasn't had anything serious yet, but she's been on several dates," adding that "she loves it." However, it's said that the mother of three is staying "far away from celebrity dating." Rumor has it, Jennifer is seeing "a handsome former pro football player."
For the actress, "her kids come first and she'll always love Ben," a friend says, "but it's time Jen began moving on with her life." Another source reveals that "her closest friends are in full support of Jen moving on and finding someone special to spend her life with."
"She truly deserves the very best," adds the source. "After everything Jen's been through, her friends and family are rooting for her to move on and live her life without Ben, and finally she seems 100% on board."
With all the support she has been receiving from friends, the 46-year-old beauty is reportedly doing great. "She feels very lucky," concludes the source.
