It has been a year and a half since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their shocking split, and after some serious downtime, sources claim that Pitt is in a much better place now – and has been for a couple of months. And, even though the 54-year-old is remaining extremely discreet, he is starting to enjoy life again with his friends and has even gone out on dates.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Pitt won’t be settling down again anytime soon, but he is casually dating and having fun.
“He is in no way ready to get serious with anyone,” says an insider. “He invites his dates over to his house and never takes women out in public. While it’s been a year and a half [after their split], it still feels too soon to him.”
While he is starting to be social, dating is still not a priority for the Fight Club star. Instead, his focus is on spending more time with his six children – Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, Knox, 9, and Vivienne, 9 – and improving himself.

The kids are living with Jolie full-time until the former couple can put together a custody agreement they are both happy with. However, the children do visit Pitt a few days a week for a few hours each time, and nannies and bodyguards always accompany them.
Pitt has been spending time with his musician friends and learning to play the guitar, and he has also gone out to dinner with close friends Bradley Cooper and Sean Penn. After spending months staying at home and being down about the split, Pitt is now going out more and living life.
He has been on numerous dates in the past few months, and reports have surfaced that he has even met up with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. After she split from her husband, Justin Theroux, Aniston apparently had a secret meeting with Pitt and it reportedly “seemed like old times, but better.”

Pitt’s mom, Jane, is all for the exes rekindling their romance and has always had a soft spot in her heart for the Friends star, and the two have kept in touch over the years since the divorce. Jane was not a fan of the way things ended between Aniston and her son, so she is happy that they are back in touch and mending fences.
Jane thinks the world of Jennifer Aniston and would be “over the moon” if her son got back together with his first wife.
Brad Pitt has not commented on the rumors surrounding his love life.
