The Top Seven Reasons No Man Will Love Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston seemingly has it all: fame, fortune, good looks, and a killer body. She’s the ultimate catch, yet she is eternally unlucky-in-love. So why is it that the actress can’t land a guy who sticks around?

7. She’s Too Successful

Men have an innate fear of successful, powerful women. This makes finding a partner difficult for Jennifer Aniston, as she has to be one of the most successful and most powerful women working in Hollywood. The actress has amassed a large fortune from the success of Friends and has stared in numerous films that have opened number one at the box office.
But men generally see successful women as a major turnoff and women know it. According to a Match.com survey, “74% of single women think men are intimidated by dates with high-powered career women.” Experts believe that “highly accomplished men tend to marry women who are lower on the professional and educational food chain than they are, traditionally choosing women over whom they can exert control.” So basically Jennifer is screwed. She needs to find someone who’s richer and more successful. She had this with Brad Pitt, but can she find it again? The older she gets, the more success and wealth she amasses, and the more difficult it gets for her to find love.
Then again, Aniston could do a Demi Moore and snatch a much younger man and find true happiness. Stranger things have happened.
6. She’s Too Desperate

If a woman is too needy or too desperate, a guy will run. It does not matter if that woman is the hottest woman on the planet, or if she works on finding a cure for cancer and is filthy rich. That dude’s going to run -- and run fast. Jennifer Aniston has this problem.
She is desperate for a meaningful relationship, desperate to be happy, and desperate for a baby. That’s a whole lot of desperation. This desperation is channeled through how she looks and what she wears. Fashion expert Tim Gunn of Project Runway ripped into Jennifer Aniston, telling OK! magazine, “Sometimes I think she has 'desperate character' written on her. The clothes we wear send a message. And I think that’s the message — I don’t think that’s her intention though.”
Her recent sexy cover shoot for GQ where she posed naked except for a tie seemed to be a desperate cry for attention. It’s like she wants to tell the world (and Angelina Jolie) that she’s still hot and that she can bag a younger man even though she just turned the big 4-0.
5. John Mayer’s Been There

John Mayer is the kiss of death to any woman. The smooth crooner has a way with women. He has an uncanny ability to swoop in when a woman is in her prime and leave them devastated, heartbroken, and a shell of their former self. His conquests, apart from Jennifer Aniston, include Vanessa Carlton, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, and Cameron Diaz. These women were never the same after John Mayer went there.
John Mayer has a reputation for being a great lover and for leaving women pining. Like a vampire, he has the ability to suck the life force out of women. Women who date him are left in a mess. After Mayer, Jennifer Love Hewitt gained weight and could only land a job on The Ghost Whisper. Similarly, Jessica Simpson gained weight and turned to country music. John Mayer is an omen and a curse to women. He leaves them alone, vulnerable, and unable to love.
4. She’s Not Hot Enough to Forgo the Lack of Privacy

It will take a very strong man to fall in love with Jennifer Aniston and stay with her. Jennifer Aniston’s love life is the source of constant speculation. Tabloid magazines and television shows feed off her private life. While she dated John Mayer the tabloids went into overdrive, spitting out daily updates on the nature of their relationship, when they were getting married, whether she was pregnant, and if they’d broken up or not. This sort of attention, harassment, and speculation would send any person packing.
The tabloids are obsessed with Jennifer Aniston's "desperate" and "lonely" love life because it contrasts the seemingly perfect life her ex is living. The media has created the ultimate showdown between her and the perfectly happy coupling of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Aniston has been cast as the sad, eternally lonely spinster. This image of her is fast becoming indented in the public mindset and looks like becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The problem with the media’s intrusive behavior is it scares guys away. Her relationship with Vince Vaughn is said to have ended because the funnyman could not handle the constant media coverage and speculation. The reverse of this is she only attracts people who are interested in the publicity (John Mayer, anyone?) and nothing else.
The real problem for Jennifer is that her love life is such a public commodity that whoever she ends up with will know her entire relationship history. That’s a tough way to start any relationship, no matter who you are.
