I think there's no denying it anymore: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are 100 percent NOT dating right now. They didn't spend Thanksgiving together. They haven't been hanging out. Rob's over in London prepping for the holidays with his family, who, if you remember correctly, aren't exactly Kristen's biggest fans. With that said, though, it's not exactly surprising that there are loads of rumors saying that Rob is trying to woo Kristen back for the holidays. Yup, according to reports, Rob's inviting Kristen to London and planning all sorts of special things trying to reignite the spark.
Even though I personally think it's a crock of bull, there's something to be said for couples that get together over the holidays. I mean, who doesn't want someone to deck the halls with, gawk at while the turkey is being sliced, and kiss as the clock strikes midnight and a new year begins? The major issue: life goes on AFTER the festivities are over.
Friends of mine used to joke about this time of year being "cuffing season." What's that mean? Well -- essentially men and women everywhere find someone to snuggle up with when it gets cold outside so you can enjoy all the things that come along with winter: pigging out, family get-togethers, and awkward holiday parties. As exemplified in by Rob and Kristen, often it's easy to go back to someone you're already comfortable with. You know, an ex.
So that's when lovers need to make the call: Is a holiday and winter romance a worthy romance? We all know about that certain magic that comes with this time of year, but it's easy to let that magic and desire blind daters to old issues and problems. The problems being the reason you ended things with an old flame in the first place. Before diving head first into holiday cheer with an old partner, you owe it to yourself to think of the repercussions. Think about your worth and if that person really makes you feel good, or if you're just trying to fill a void.
Believe-you-me -- if you're just trying to have someone play a part, then an ex isn't the best holiday choice. Look for new love under the mistletoe, and you may be pleasantly surprised.
Have you ever gotten back together with an ex over the holidays? Did you regret it?
