After a brief split in 2018, it seems that Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs have patched things up and are now dating again. On May 22nd, Pattinson was photographed dining with the British singer at a Parisian restaurant. The former couple had previously spent three months together in a London courthouse before calling it quits in April. Their split came after a very public falling out in October 2018, when Twigs accused Pattinson of cheating on her with multiple women. In response, he called the claims “slander.”

Pattinson has been linked to several other women since then and was previously in a relationship with Mary Elizabeth Williams. Twigs’ statement in October 2018 was the first time the two had publicly spoken about their reconciliation. “I think that, in time, we will grow old together and face the end together, as friends,” she said in a statement. “I hope you feel the same.”

After their breakup, Twigs went on a tour with her band, the Vagabon, but she was unable to perform or promote the album. In March 2019, she released the single “Prayer,” which was followed by her first album in three years, titled, Fool’s Gold.

Pattinson has also been seen with several women since the end of his relationship with Twigs. In December 2018, he was spotted at a London bar with Elle MacLeman, a former child actress. They were later photographed on the balcony of a Paris apartment building. In February 2019, it was reported that the actor had ended his three-year engagement to actress Mia Rose and was now dating British singer and songwriter Mariacarla Trovato. The couple has been described as “very happy.”

Why Are They Dating Again?

It seems that after years of being on the rebound, Pattinson and Twigs are finally finding their footing. Here are a few possible reasons why they might be dating again:

They Have More Common Ground Than In the Past

Although they haven’t always been on the best of terms, it seems that the two finally found common ground. According to their reputations, it’s no secret that they are both high-maintenance, eccentric romantics who are attracted to the complex aspects of a relationship. In the past, that might have caused problems, but the diva attitude of Twigs and the aloofness of Pattinson might actually work in favor of the pair. They can both be introspective and thoughtful while also being completely devoted to each other. While it might be easy for other romances to unravel under the weight of such profound introspection, it’s likely that their relationship will be just as strong as ever.

They Want To Spend More Time With Their Kids

One of the biggest draws of a parent-child dynamic is that it allows for more one-on-one time. If parents want to enjoy a romantic night out without worrying about their kids, they can make that happen by taking them to a movie or eating dinner at home. Similarly, families can get away for a school holiday without having to worry about meals, laundry, or other daily tasks. While it might be hard for families with small children to live as a couple, it’s clear that Pattinson and Twigs want more time with their kids. Her debut solo album, titled, Vagabon, is entirely dedicated to her children, as is her music video for “Prayer.” In the song, she raps, “They say time is fleeting, but if you spend it with the ones you love, it goes more quickly.” Even if they don’t want to admit it, it’s clear that the former couple is glad to have their family back.

They Want To Be More Open-Minded

Pattinson and Twigs have both struggled with mental illness and addiction in the past. Having been through a rigorous recovery process, they are now interested in exploring new ways of thinking and being. They want to avoid falling back into their old habits and are open to new experiences. That being said, openness can also be a double-edged sword. While it can lead to exciting discoveries, it can also make a relationship more vulnerable. Being transparent about one’s mental health can help a person’s partner understand where they’re coming from and how they’re feeling. It can also help the family member understand that they’re not alone in this world. (This story was originally published in December 2018.)

They Want To Try Something Different

When you’re a couple that has tried almost every other romantic option, it’s only natural that you’d want to try something new. Although they haven’t publicly stated it, it seems that Pattinson and Twigs have put their romantic woes behind them and are now ready to try something bold and different. They want to give it a go and see how it turns out. That being said, nothing ventured, nothing gained. The more they try, the more they’ll learn and the more they’ll enjoy.

They Want To Try Something More Traditional

Pattinson and Twigs have both gone through extreme highs and lows over the years. They’ve had their ups and downs just like every other couple, but because of their history it’s clear that they’re looking for something more traditional. After all, tradition is key when it comes to lasting love. However, the road to romance doesn’t have to be filled with rainbows and butterflies. It can be a bumpy ride, just like in the movies. If they’ve learned anything from their past experiences, it’s that nothing will ever truly feel good until it feels right. (This story was originally published in May 2019.)

They Are Finally Ready To Trust Each Other

As difficult as it might be to believe, it seems that after years of not being able to trust anyone, Pattinson and Twigs finally found a way to trust each other. The two were constantly seeking validation and would find it in the wrong places. However, as their relationship developed, they started to see each other in a new light. They began to see their mutual problems and learned to trust each other’s promises. Now that they’re ready to let go of the past and embrace a new future, it’s evident that they’re both willing to put their faith in each other and let things take their course. (This story was originally published in April 2019.)

Despite the publicity around their breakup, it seems that Pattinson and Twigs have maintained their privacy. The two haven’t made any public appearances together since their dinner in Paris in May and haven’t shared any intimate details about their relationship. Their low-maintenance styles and no-fuss approach to parenting have also helped. It’s clear that they’re better off as a family unit and want to maintain their newfound freedom without having to be constantly mindful of their public image. That being said, they’re both aware that their kids are still a part of their lives and are committed to being a good role model.

It’s been a bumpy road for Pattinson and Twigs, but it seems that the former couple is finally content. They found each other, got through their break-up, and are now committed to being a part of each other’s lives. While it might be tempting to speculate about the future, it’s better to let things happen naturally. After all, for two people who have been through so much already, what could be more natural than for them to want to take things slowly and enjoy each other’s company?
