Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches, and Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger says that Oscar winner Ben Affleck is looking for a date on Raya. Stanger told Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood podcast that the 47-year-old Affleck is quite active on the celebrity and VIP dating app.
“He’s on Raya. I’ve seen him a million f—king times on Raya,” said Stanger. “There’s a reason he married Jennifer Garner. … she’s a mother to him. She’s the catch of all catches.”

Stanger added that the Justice League star needs to realize that he’s going after 20-somethings and he’s getting bored with them. Her advice for Affleck is to find someone in the middle, who has the nurturing mother side, but who will also put up with his “sh*t.”
Stanger says that Affleck has yet to find a “boundaries girl whose got spine.” And, she believes that the ideal age for Affleck when he’s looking for a partner would be between 38 and 40.
Affleck confirmed that he was on Raya back in October via an Instagram post when rumors were swirling about his love life, but he attempted to shift the focus from that to his philanthropy.
“HA, you got me. I’m dating,” wrote Affleck before telling his Instagram followers that he was making a donation to The Midnight Mission, which is an organization that “helps those in need with housing, training, development, and recovery.”
Affleck explained that he was making a donation because there are people who are battling addiction everyday, and they need help because they don’t have the resources. The actor also tagged Raya in his post to persuade them to donate, too. And, he asked who else was with him.

HA, you got me. I’m dating. But let’s be serious for a moment and talk about something that is actually important. I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others. @themidnightmission is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery. I’m making a donation today because there are people battling addiction every day that don’t have the resources and need help. @raya, you in? Who else is with me? Click the link in my bio to donate.
As fans know, Affleck was married to Jennifer Garner for ten years and they share three children – Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 7. They split in 2015 and finalized their divorce in 2018. Since the split, Affleck has had an on-again, off-again relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, but it appears that they are off for good.
Before he went to rehab in August 2018, Affleck also had a brief romance with Playboy model Shauna Sexton, who was more than 20 years his junior.
In addition to her advice for Ben Affleck, Stanger also talked about the newly-single Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. Stanger said that Giudice “is a catch,” but she doesn’t want to see her with anyone in the real estate business or flipping business.
Instead, Patti Stanger wants to see Teresa Giudice – who just split from her husband Joe Giudice after 20 years of marriage – with “a Wall Streeter.”
