Even though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are officially broken up, there's still loads of speculation about the state of things between the on-again off-again Twilight couple. Just the other day, Rob and Kristen held hands in public which oh so totally means they're getting back together, right? Ehhh, not exactly. Rumor has it that Kristen indeed wants to get back together but Rob isn't ready. So her solution? She wants the two of them to try being just friends. Yup, Kristen wants Rob to be her friend or at least try to. Well gee, isn't that cute.
Sigh. Friends. Not exactly an easy thing to do after you've been in a full-fledged relationship for years.
It's a hard thing to do, go back to being just friends after you've had a sexual relationship with a partner. It's hard to be with them and not think about the intimate times you've had, or have the urge to do intimate things once again. So many questions arise. What happens if you guys are friends and another romantic interest comes into the picture? How will you handle that? Can you bring them around one-another? The answers, well, they aren't so clear.
It is possible, though. One-hundred percent. I have a great relationship with a man I dated years ago. Now, he's one of my best friends. However, it took a good crop of time apart for us to put aside our past and just be friends. We needed time to let the issues that caused the demise of our relationship to settle.
I don't know if Kristen and Rob have had enough time to let the dust settle, so to speak. What I do know, though, is that the two of them seemed to work well together for a very long time. Something tells me there's still more to come.
Do you think Rob and Kristen can be just friends?
