Just when it looked like things had started heating up between Jennifer Garner and her reported businessman boyfriend, John Miller, they now appear to be “slowing down.”
Initial reports from Us Weekly implied that the couple’s budding romance was “getting serious,” but according to sources at ET, the 46-year-old has pressed pause for the time being.
“Jen has slowed things down with John Miller since word got out that they were dating,” ET’s source said. “Jen’s children, career and Ben [Affleck] are her main focus at the moment and she is not ready for anything too serious.”
The actress was first linked to Miller, 40, who runs CaliGroup, back in October, three years after splitting from husband Ben Affleck. The couple’s divorce was finalized in November, but perhaps the 13 Going on 30 star wasn’t quite ready to re-enter the dating world just yet.

A source told the outlet that Garner supposedly “doesn’t want to be deeply committed at the moment.”
“She wants to focus on family, career, and getting Ben back on track. She enjoys her time with John but she has concerns of moving quickly because she doesn’t want to be disappointed,” the source adds. “Her friends are in full support of her stepping back a bit because they all know relationship take a lot of work and right now her plate is full.”
Since Affleck left his third stint in alcohol rehab back in October, Garner has been busy acting as a support system for her former spouse, communicating with the 46-year-old “almost daily” as he “leans on her a lot.”
Despite the fact that they are no longer together, there is no bad blood between them. The pair, who share three children together (Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6), make an effort to frequently spend time together, even celebrating Thanksgiving as a family.
Per ET’s report, “The good news is that they work incredibly hard on keeping their family unit working for the children, despite the fact they are no longer married.”
