Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are to divorce after two years of marriage.
TMZ, the US showbusiness website, claimed Jolie has filed papers citing “irreconcilable differences”.
A legal representative for the actress confirmed she has filed papers to dissolve the marriage.
“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” attorney Robert Offer said in a statement.
The couple have been together since 2005, and married in 2012, and have six children.
TMZ claimed Jolie has requested physical custody of the children and that September 15, 2016 was the date of separation.
Just last year, Jolie told the Telegraph the couple would “stick together whatever comes” but admitted: ““Brad and I have our issues”.
She added: “To be clear: we have fights and problems like any other couple. We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space.”
Jolie and Pitt have been one of the most scrutinised celebrity couples of recent years, since rumours the actor left his former partner Jennifer Aniston during the filming of Mr and Mrs Smith.
Its hard not to be on the rebound months or even years after a relationship and I say this with caution. It’s all about comparing the new person with the last person and really accepting that no person is perfect. You will find one thing that is certain and that is the fact that is that people are different and their qualities are different.
Its hard not to compare people with each other because this is how the human brain works and its natural to do this. Accepting the choices you made and the reasons why you made them is really important as you know that the one you picked it deep down the best one for you.
Forgetting the past is hard and its easy for girlfriends to tell you just get over him he was a *&%&^… well the bad news is that it’s a long journey to truly move on and if anyone disagrees then they never had anything to lose. It’s difficult as you lose a friend or perhaps a fatherly figure. If you wonder why it still hurts be honest with yourself and move on when you are ready.
My best advise to you is learning to forget the past is not always the best way but learning from it is much better and understanding why you liked that person will help you to move on!
Thanks to my friend who tried 17 online dating sites and 17 dates! She did not want to be named!
So it’s becoming much easier to meet new people now I have tried on-line dating for the second time. We start to go through the same route; message a little, then send some text messages and we meet ( it’s all becoming more normal)
Second site and its Plenty Of Fish .. This site looks cheap like its been knocked up in the garage by some kid on a weekend. However its easy to use and more importantly its FREE! I think that this was the first free site that started up and it became much bigger than expected.
First Impressions of POF
- It’s easy to use and user-friendly but looks cheap and I think it attracts stranger people than Match
- Its seems less sophisticated than Match.com and really has an edge of desperation
- However I managed to get a date so lets see what happens next
I managed to get a date with a surgeon who told me he liked cake, when we met up he seemed nice he had a flashy car and was good on paper so far… so good… Immediately after talking for a while I found out he was moving to Manchester soon so why did he want to date me in London. Anyway we had a drink and there was no spark! I hate to say it but so far the Match.com date was better even though he was not my ideal man! This site seemed to attract a different class of male yet was Free! This was not for me TW – Time wasters
I found myself single and out on my lonesome so I have decided to become one of those animals that tries online dating for the first time..Thanks to my friend who tried 17 online dating sites and 17 dates! She did not want to be named!
Match charges you money so I hoped that the quality of men would be better than any of the free sites, well I hoped.. Here goes…. At first glance the logo is attractive and the site is user-friendly many of the men are attractive and well-educated on their.
Every Time you take a look at a person on the site they know you have seen them I do feel like a bit of a stalker already. I have started to talk to quite a few different guys on the site and actually I have my first date lined up.
Who is he?
He is an Oxford graduate not very tall yet he looks cute and well harmless so lets give him ago. We plan to meet at Charlots Bistro in Chiswick for our first date its near my house and actually feels safe. We exchanged numbers and he text me a few random messages about meeting… Feels strange talking to a stranger as I have never been on-line dating before!
We meet for the first time!
I get a drink and wait at the bar feeling a little nervous but I am excited and well my mission to find a man is on I am excited and ready! I work out a plan in my head how the date will go and actually the date goes the complete opposite way. We meet and talk and after loosening up we go and get very drunk together, shots and wine follow… He invites me in for coffee at the end of the date but I tell him I am off home and he is not getting any “coffee”
End of date one
Great date, Match was a great source of men there were plenty of my type of men on there the ones who seemed normal yet a little middle class and pompous that is just how I like them. It’s easy to use and not too pricey! Worth a try
Will I meet him again!
Yes – But it won’t go anywhere!
7 out of 10 *******
How to ensure you push them away in one date
1) Becoming too pushy and keen for the first three months is a massive no no! Look, even if the guy is a saint he will not be keen if you are way too keen! Even if guys tell you this is not true I do believe that the only way to get them eating out of the palm of your hand is to stay COOL!
2) What does it mean to be cool?! Being cool means not sending texts to him every day, it means being busy and it’s just being unavailable now and again!
3) Start to talk about being in a relationship on the first five dates – no!!!!!!
4) You only let him pay for the first and second dinner and you never offer to go half
5) You eat with your mouth full, lick your fingers after dinner or spit on him over dinner ( big no no!)
6) Key lines to try to avoid – Where do you see yourself in the future? What was your longest relationship?
Do you want kinds? Is your mum mad? Are you into religion? Do you want to get married?
7) Do not sleep with them on the 1st – 6th dates

Women’s idea of the perfect man? A 6ft, £48k-a-year, beer-drinking meat-eater with an Audi
Many men would suggest that women are a difficult to please bunch.
But in actual fact, it transpires there’s an easy way for men to make themselves irresistible to women.
They just need to be able to tick every box on a checklist of demands women have said contribute to the perfect man.
According to the list, the perfect man eats meat, drives an Audi and phones his mother twice a week, a poll of women revealed today.
He also drinks lager or beer, not wine or spirits, and earns a comfortable £48,000 a year.
The ideal male will also be 6ft tall, have short dark hair and smart dress sense – similar to that of U.S. X Factor host Steve Jones.
Vegetarians were revealed to be a turn off, while being clean shaven and in possession of a smooth, hair-free chest (take note, Simon Cowell) were said to be a bonus.
Hot wheels: Driving an Audi was said to contribute to women’s notion that a man was ‘perfect’, according to the study
A demanding 15 per cent said they would insist on a suitor having at least a master’s degree or a PHD.
But 70 per cent of girls said they would prefer to date a man who earned more than them.
Although 86 per cent of girls want a man who is sensitive, 64 per cent only want him to say ‘I love you’ when he really means it.
The poll found 39 per cent of women would want her man to love shopping, but a third said they would like a man to leave the shopping side of things to her.
Interestingly women would rather her ideal man enjoy watching sport at the pub than watch soap operas and reality TV shows with them.
Surprisingly two thirds of women would rather Mr Perfect admitted it when he is eyeing up other girls, rather than trying to cover it up.
