Kristen Stewart Wants to Be Friends With Robert Pattinson but Is It Too Soon?

GossipMonger 24

Robert PAttinson and Kristen StewartEven 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?

Kristen Stewart has picked the right time of trying to become friends again with Robert pattinson now that the dust has settled.

I believe they are friends and always will be friends. Awkward friends maybe. When they eventually start dating other people they will have to keep their distance though because i don't think it would be fair to their new partners.

Eh, I'm still friends with a few guys I used to date, including my date to my senior prom... we've been friends for years (decades really, which makes me feel older than old...).  We're much better as friends - most of them are married, and one I'm teasing about how he should pop the question to his GF this X-Mas (she's very good to/for him =))  that being said, this type of thing requires that both people know how to be grown-up about it... I don't see either of them as "grown up" at all - so I wish them luck....

I think they will always be friends. I think it's a smart thing to do. Trust needs to develop again. I think people don't understand the pressure and stress they've had to endure. I believe they will find each other again. Time heals everything. I'm mature enough to believe that they are giving each other space. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Another day, same old nonsense.

There is however a great new Wall Street Journal article today on the privacy and security issues that celebrity address search websites create. If you give a damn about the celebrities you claim to support, its a must read. See Hollywood's Worst Kept Secrets at

In other Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart news, see a new analysis that shows that the tabloid press has failed to prove a Rob & Kristen breakup at Its the only fair conclusion that can be reached given the evidence.

Wait till September or October.

Rob is not worthy of Kristen's friendship. He did not even stand behind her when the world was against her. The to take Katy Perry's advice. The was a slap in the face to Kristen. Kristen deserves a better friend than Rob.

I'm still trying to figure out why they broke up? Sounds like maybe some time away from each other would be good for them both, maybe even dating other people so that they'll realize that they're still soul mates. I honestly hope that they'll find each other again once the dust settles, and that includes renewing the friendship that was the basis of their relationship. I think it might take some time, though, and rushing something would not be beneficial to either of them. Rob needs to just get over what happened in the past and they both need to move on together. He obviously still cares about her or he wouldn't be so mad at her.

I think they should get back together and people should mind their own business they have a history together. Please them alone they are in love.
