When you're first getting to know a new guy and have high hopes that it will lead to a relationship, one thing you might wanna check out first: Whether or not that guy is just getting out of a long-term relationship. Rebounding is real, my friends, and there is nothing like finally getting out of a sputtering relationship and starting up a new one to suddenly forget all of the reasons you got out of the last one and start to miss it. Maybe it's just easier, and human beings are essentially lazy creatures. So Dylan Penn, who is supposedly dating Robert Pattinson, needs to be careful. Especially when we keep hearing about how Rob is going over to Kristen's for unknown reasons. And didn't they just take a minivacation together? Many outlets are insisting they're about to come out again as a couple.
Well, who knows how much of that stuff is true, but apparently enough of it is that Dylan's friends are worried for her. A source close to Dylan told RadarOnline that her pals are worried that Rob and Kristen will "break [Dylan's] heart." He or she reportedly said:
We are all hoping he is the one for her and does not break her heart, because she is such a lovely and sweet person. She is a real beauty, so I would definitely say she is in his league if not even higher.
Beauty or not, it's hard to compete with history. Ideally, you should wait until the person you like has been out of a relationship for at least six months, but that's not always easy to do with the lack of suitable candidates out there! Wait too long and someone else will snap him up. Get involved too fast and you're left crushed when he suddenly misses his ex and runs back to her.
For now, Dylan and Rob apparently do not consider themselves a couple, but are merely having a "romance" -- which sounds suspiciously like a friends-with-benefits situation. Unless both parties are totally on the same page (and how often does that ever happen), it sounds like Dylan could be cruising for a bruised heart.
But what is a little collateral damage to have one of the country's favorite couples back together?
Have you ever dated a guy who just got out of a relationship? Do you think it's wise?
