Kris Jenner recently opened up about dating, following her separation from her estranged husband Bruce.
The Kardashian matriarch, 58, has been linked to former "Bachelor" star Ben Flajnik, 30, in recent months however she danced around dating questions during a candid interview with ET Online. Jenner
announced her separation from Bruce, a former Olympic champion, 63, after 22 years of marriage in October.
"I guess I'll know when it happens," Jenner said when asked whether she is ready to find love again. "I don't plan it. I've learned not to plan anything anymore."
Jenner and Flajnik have been photographed together on various occasions recently, fueling speculation that they are dating. The reality stars have a 28-year age gap.
"You find who you fall in love with in life," she said of potentially dating a younger man. "If they happen to be a certain age, they happen to be a certain age."
Flajnik, a winemaker, reportedly met Jenner for the first time when he appeared on her daytime talkshow "Kris" during the summer. Jenner and PR guru, Jonathan Cheban, spent time at Flajnik's winery in September.
"I extended a warm welcome up to the winery and shot an episode of the Kardashians with her and Jonathan (Cheban)," Flajnik told People.com, noting that when he and Jenner got to talking, ideas started flowing.
"We started to conceptualize these new businesses. We're very much prospectively working together. There's some exciting stuff to come," he said.
Jenner and Bruce, who have been subject to divorce reports for many years, shares two children together, Kendall and Kylie, in addition to other children from previous relationships. In a recent statement the pair, who separated long before the formal announcement, revealed that their family is their number one priority.
"We are living separately and we are much happier this way but we will always have much love and respect for each other," the couple told E! News.
"Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our No. 1 priority," they added.
