Jennifer Aniston's love life is more complicated than figuring out the Netflix cliffhanger ending which prompts us to Google why did Tully and Kate stop talking in Firefly Lane?

But while die-hard fans would love to see her reunited with ex-husband Brad Pitt, after it's revealed Brad's mother was rooting for him to reunite with Jen, many would just love to see her settle down. 

Jennifer had the 90s hair cut everyone wanted in sitcom Friends and as we all stock up on Jen's signature lipstick shade, there's a lesson we could all learn from The Morning Show star. While Jen is looking fabulous at 52, it appears the single star has given fans a big insight into her relationship deal-breakers and it's not what you're expecting...

More from woman&home:

For most women, the ultimate deal-breaker would be cheating but for Jen, it's something else.

The actress posted snippets of a documentary about singer and actress Eartha Kitt on her Instagram Story. In one clip, a reporter asks Eartha, "If a man came into your life, wouldn’t you want to compromise?”

Eartha replied, “Stupid. A man comes into my life and I have to compromise? You must think about that one again. A man comes into my life and you have to compromise? For what? For what?”

And Jennifer, who is currently filming Season two of The Morning Show, showed her support for what Eartha was saying when she posted a series of laughing emojis, which gives us the biggest clue yet that she will not be compromised by anyone in a relationship.

It could explain why Jennifer's not yet settled down for good with two failed marriages behind her - after divorcing her first husband Brad in 2005, she split from husband Justin Theroux in 2017 reportedly because neither could agree on where to live. Justin wanted to remain in New York while Jen had set up life in LA.

And while most men would like a shot at dating the star, there have been reports of a new "handsome" mystery man on the scene. A source told InTouch, "They have tons in common. He’s down to earth, handsome, he makes her laugh and he makes her feel safe. She trusts him."

Let's hope he doesn't mind compromising!
