What Ben wanted before meeting Ana
Ben Affleck was married to Jennifer Garner for 10 years before they decided to split in 2015. Affleck dated Lindsay Shookus after Garner and prior to Ana de Armas. They had an on-again, off-again relationship and decided to split for good in 2019.
Before Affleck started dating de Armas, he said, he wanted a deeply meaningful relationship. He also shared that he was not into dating apps.
“I am on no dating [apps]. No Tinder. Grindr. Bumble. Humble. I am not on any of them,” Affleck told Diane Sawyer in a previous interview per Yahoo! Entertainment.
“I don’t have judgment for people who are, great. I know people who are on them and have a fun time but that’s not me,” he added.
Ben and Ana enjoyed a motorcycle ride
Ben Affleck took his girlfriend, Ana de Armas, out on a motorcycle ride before sundown in June. The couple drove in his black Harley Davidson Livewire electric motorcycle in Pacific Palisades. De Armas was sitting on his back and wrapped her arms around his waist.
On Saturday, Affleck celebrated his 48th birthday, and de Armas gifted her boyfriend with a new BMW motorcycle. They were later photographed enjoying their new ride with matching helmets, People reported.
A friend of Affleck said the two were “enjoying their time together.”
“He makes her laugh and she’s a great influence,” the friend said.
“They safely visit with his family and he works to make sure he is healthy and present for his family. His priority will always be his children and making that work.”
