Jennifer Aniston Wants A 'Great Man'

Jennifer Aniston's "dream" is to start a family with a "great man".

The 41-year-old actress - who is rumoured to be dating her 'Bounty Hunter' co-star Gerard Butler - has admitted her main goal in life now is to settle down and become a mother.

She said: "I've had some wonderful experiences. I hope I've reached a point where I'm ready to enjoy being with a great man and having a family together. That's always been my dream."

Jennifer has dated several famous hunks since she split from her ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2005, including John Mayer, Vince Vaughn and Paul Sculfor.

The screen beauty believes romances don't always work because people are too "demanding" and have such "high expectations" about new relationships.

She mused in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We're all a lot more complicated. We've also become more wary and more demanding, maybe. Men and women are developing higher expectations and sometimes that creates too much pressure because your partner is not always going to be everything you want.

"We have to learn to appreciate our differences and enjoy the fact that we all evolve differently over time. If you're open to that, it can be interesting and you can make that part of your journey together. Relationships are not static things. You have to keep communicating and trying to understand your partner."

For Jennifer, a successful relationship relies heavily on the ability to work through problems together.

She explained: "Love is the beginning of the process that draws you together, but the intensity and the nature of love is something that evolves as well. We all know that things change over time and you're constantly dealing with different issues and conflicts. You have to be willing to work things out and try to do it as harmoniously as possible. That's the tough part.

"We all come across obstacles and it's how you deal with conflicts that is probably the most critical part of staying together and focusing on all the things you love about the other person. The biggest thing is being able to face up to all the changes and challenges. It's hard."
