Some were surprised when Stephen Huvane and John Pisani stated on Dec. 5th, 2006 that "After Jennifer's trip to London several weeks ago, Jennifer and Vince mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be good friends today...".
In 2005, Top Synergy had already given this relationship the thumbs down as a long-term love relationship with rating of 57RQ. They did, however, predict that a strong friendship could flourish here. But does anyone ever listen?
According to their report, the main challenge is in the lack of passion on Jennifer's side. When things heat up, passion is all around; however it takes more than that to sustain the fire after the first few months of courtship and exploration.
Another deficiency in this relationship is Vince's lack of true openness. It is hard for Vaughn to expose himself, his fears and insecurities even to Jennifer whose kindness he so appreciates. At this time, Top Synergy doesn't show other relationships for Vince, so it is hard to know if his difficulty with intimacy is across the board or with Jen only.
Jennifer, however, demonstrates such powerful intimacy that it is considered good enough for the two combined. What it actually means is that Aniston's ongoing willingness to play her cards face up and keep her vulnerabilities exposed could gradually help Vince to share his own. That may still happen if the two maintain a long-term dynamic friendship.
Wait a minute. A glance at Aniston's relationships with Brad Pitt (77RQ), Matthew Perry (77RQ), Matt LeBlanc (43RQ), Paul Rudd (33RQ), and Tate Donovan (33RQ) shows that there is nothing new under the sun. None of these relationships elicited passion on Jennifer's part! The rest is for you to figure out.
