Robert Pattinson Explains Exactly What He Needs to Fall in Love Again


robert pattinsonGiven how the reported details of Robert Pattinson's love life seem to change from hour to hour, we might as well just face the facts. The man's post-Kristen Stewart romances may be destined to remain a mystery. What torture!

Thankfully, he's not a completely closed book, because there's ONE thing we've learned about the supposedly single guy: What he's looking for in a potential girlfriend. Or should I say smelling for?

Apparently Rob told the Portuguese magazine Activa that he needs to be attracted to a woman's scent. He explained:

It doesn’t necessarily have to be perfume. I like the smell of people. It is really strange, and I’m sure it has to do with pheromones. We like people because subconsciously we like the way they smell. I always find this very interesting to observe.

Ha. While it may sound sort of bizarre to admit that out loud, I'd argue that it's actually not so strange at all. I'd guess he's quite right about the pheromones bit, too. This is speaking from personal experience ... I can without a doubt recall how I dated guys whose natural, basic smell/scent/natural manly odor or whatever you want to call it felt off to me. And I can remember back to when I first started dating my husband, feeling like his scent even at its most natural -- not his cologne, body wash, soap, deodorant, etc., but just HIM -- smelled familiar, comfortable, attractive.

I've heard other couples admit the same. An attractive scent is one of those ways you just know it's right with someone ... And as points out, Kristen was downright obsessed with Rob's scent, having told Vogue last year, "I love the way [my boyfriend] smells. And him me."

Wow, sounds like a match made in olfactory heaven, huh? Well, since Robsten's potential for a romantic future lookin' majorly bleak these days, here's hoping Rob finds someone else whose smell he adores as much or more than Kristen's!

How does someone's scent factor into how you're attracted to them?

Rob is dating Dylan Penn, PEOPLE confirmed it. Twilight was a showmance and Rob never claimed to date bella girl.

Kristin stewart was talking about her married director Rupert Sanders in that armpit smell comment, that quote is from last July when she was lying in his casting couch and they licked each other's armpits too. Eww.

Dodo -Are you crazy seek professional help quickly if you believe boulevards are naive and are probably not mate in the header pomotane, Kristen'll not sleep, just kiss him, major crimes, plus it was about kissing sweat with Pattinson, so you straighten it in the header If you have something there to laugh, a big idiot

Dodo - what an appropriate screen name, like the bird.  Twist it anyway you like, everyone knows she was talking about Rob because interviews are conducted months in advance of their publication.  You are way to obsessed with Kristen.  Get help.

...well,...if it is only about smell, i might be a priority,..of course, i use best French scents(perfume),...but my ex-boy-friends used to say that there is something in me,..some of them asked me not to use scents, because my natural smell is better than perfume, of them said that it is very elegant as if came from Heaven,...he said that it was driving him mad,..i never feel much smell in me,..i don't have sweat or dirt because i take shower in the morning,..& bath in the evening(every day),...but sometimes i think it is still there(just little),...i never feel it,..but men get crazy- i really don't know what it is,....i do agree that every person has his/her specific smell...& i think - it is good,...
