Kristen Stewart has come under a whole lot of fire since word–and photos–got out that she cheated on Robert Pattinson with her married director, Rupert Sanders. She even issued a public apology to R-Patz, despite previously never officially even acknowledging their relationship in an effort to get him back. She’s now stepping her game up by stepping out. This time, though, she’s not stepping out with a skeevy, older, married father–she’s stepping out in Rob’s clothes.
Kristen Stewart has been sporting Rob’s Baltimore Orioles cap as well as a gold ring that he gave her. Since the girl is one of the world’s highest paid actresses, chances are it’s more an effort to get him back than it is a lack of other wardrobe options. Experts over at Hollywood Life even said that Kristen wearing Rob’s duds is likely her way of trying to keep Rob close to her, with one even gushing, “Kristen Stewart is still wearing Rob Pattinson’s hat and ring because she cannot imagine her life without him!”
While we totally feel for her broken heart–granted, we feel much worse for Rob’s (so does Jon Stewart!)–we’re not entirely sure if trying to get him back is the best idea.
Trying to get a guy back in general is a roll of the dice. If you and a dude split up and you’re determined to get him back, you need to take a look at why you want him back before you take any kind of action. Are you lonely? Is the thought of adjusting to life without him too much for you to think about? Do you hate being single? If the answers to these questions are “yes,” take a step back and think about why your relationship ended in the first place. Chances are one or more of you were unhappy, right? Is that something you really want to go back to?
In the case of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, chances are she was really unhappy, which is why her trying to get him back seems a little weird to us, even though he is one of the hottest guys on the planet right now. Think about it: If you were satisfied in your relationship, would you mess around with someone else? Someone else who’s married with kids? In a car? When paparazzi follow you everywhere you go? It really sounds to us like Kristen Stewart was trying to sabotage her own relationship with Rob, so the fact that she’s trying so hard to get him back may be a symptom of her fear of being alone–or of her career going down the tube (which, for the record, we think is totally unfair, because we kinda think Rupert Sanders seems like a huge scumbag for going after a younger girl that was working for him). While it’d be awesome for Bella and Edward’s real-life counterparts to be together forever, Kristen Stewart dealt such a huge blow to Robert Pattinson’s trust that it may be hard for her to ever get him back, even though he reportedly adored everything about her.
That said, if you really do miss an ex and want to get him back, you both need to go into things honestly: The two of you need to be willing to recognize, take responsibility for, and work on the problems that plagued your relationship in the first place. Otherwise you may wind up in exactly the same situation again!
