Regarding his romantic life, a friend says "he is not dating anyone."

While the former couple continues to sort out the details of their pending divorce, Affleck is doing his best to stay positive.

"Ben is doing great," adds a source close to Affleck. "He is as happy as he can be in this position. I don't think it's that easy, and definitely not that easy to do it in the public eye."



And as always, he relishes his life as a father, making sure to spend as much time with his three kids as his hectic schedule will allow.

"He's putting on a united front out of respect for the children and for her and for each other," adds a friend of the couple. "On that Ben has never wavered."
