As previously reported, Angelina was making it hard for Brad to see his six children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9 — over the holidays.
"Angie is using the kids as pawns against him," an insider explains.
"Fight back and get angry every time she pulls a stunt, which would only impacts the kids, or handle it like a mature adult.
If that means he won't see the kids as much or at the holidays, he has made peace with it." This attitude adjustment could be a result of the 53-year-old's new social life.
Despite the wealth of digital tools that allow people to search for potential partners, and even as one-in-ten Americans are now using one of the many online dating platforms, the vast majority of relationships still begin offline.
Even among Americans who have been with their spouse or partner for five years or less, fully 88% say that they met their partner offline–without the help of a dating site.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
One-in-five online daters have asked someone else to help them with their profile.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
Many online daters enlist their friends in an effort to put their best digital foot forward.
