Anyone itching to see Robert Pattinson cozying up with rumored new love interest Dylan Penn may have to wait a long time to spy any juicy PDA. In fact, it could NEVER happen ... if Rob has his way. The actor has reportedly made up his mind that his new relationship with Dylan is going to be very different from the one he had with Kristen Stewart -- especially in that it'll be much more private, according to HollywoodLife.com.
“He wouldn’t want to be photographed with Dylan because he has learned a lot from his dating life with Kristen to avoid these types of situations,” their source reveals. While that's definitely a bummer for the curious gawking masses, it is probably the best possible scenario for a real shot at romance.
I mean, can you imagine if you were in these celebs' shoes and constantly being stalked by paparazzi? Just how much of a toll could that potentially take on your ability to build intimacy?
Furthermore, making a conscious decision to steer clear of photogs with Dylan and avoid living out his relationship in front of the public eye proves Rob's learned a lot -- and has no intention of repeating past mistakes. Cheers to that! Think about it: How many times have all of us at some point or another found ourselves experiencing getting stuck in a toxic (or at least ill-advised) relationship pattern? Even when we think we're not going to end up with this kind of partner or in that sort of emotional trap, learning from previous missteps and actually moving in a different direction is easier said than done.
That said, plenty of celebs who've vowed to keep their relationships out of the spotlight have been successful. Just look at Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds! Not everyone needs to be Kimye ... or what Robsten was. Still, he is Robert Pattinson, so for that reason, I hope Rob's actually able to make this new, "privacy first!" approach work. If so, his chance at making things last with Dylan will be so much greater.
What's a relationship pattern you found yourself repeating time and again? Do you think Rob will be able to keep his relationship with Dylan private?
