Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, two superstitions that go hand-in-hand, have finally been confirmed to be a real couple! News agencies broke the story, citing “multiple reliable sources” who claimed that the couple had been dating secretly for some time. They’ve been relatively quiet about their relationship since they were teenagers, but have never denied their feelings for each other. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016, Stewart confessed that “I always think it’s funny when people deny that they’re in love with someone. It’s like denying you’re a vegetarian or you have a weird hobby. I’m really bad at denying things, so I don’t try. We’ll never really know. Maybe we’re meant to be together and maybe we’re not. But I think it’s pretty neat that people want to bet on it.”

The two are undeniably passionate about each other, but they’ve rarely opened up about their true feelings. Although they were both engaged to other people before they started dating each other, they’ve always described their relationship as “unofficial.” It’s only been in the last year that they’ve started to publicly acknowledge their affection for one another. In May 2017, they were pictured walking hand-in-hand in New York City, causing fans and social media users to speculate about their true feelings for one another. Since then, they’ve been affectionate with each other in front of the camera and kept their love life low-profile. But thanks to some insider info from Vanity Fair, we know a lot more about their relationship than we have ever known before!

Here Are All the Things We Know About Pattinson and Stewart’s Relationship

They Keep Their Relationship A Secret

The biggest secret about Pattinson and Stewart’s relationship is that they’ve kept it a secret from almost the entire world. Not even their closest friends and family know about their romance. And that’s a really big deal. It’s not everyday that you meet the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. There’s a reason why they didn’t want to tell anyone about their new found love. It’s not because they’re trying to hide their relationship from the paparazzi (although that has probably played a role in the past), but because they want to protect themselves and each other from potentially harmful influences. That’s a big deal, especially in today’s world, where cyber-bullying, harassment, and online attacks are commonplace. After all, love is stronger than hate, and togetherness is always more powerful than isolation.

They’ve Been Dating For A While

According to eyewitnesses and other reliable sources, Pattinson and Stewart have been dating for a while. It seems that they’ve been keeping their relationship under wraps for the most part because they’re both really private individuals who don’t like to reveal too much about themselves. Although they were both teenagers when they started dating, they’re both in their mid-20s now. That means they’ve been together for a while and have had the opportunity to grow and mature as individuals and as a couple. It also means that they’re already used to being in a committed, intimate relationship and have the experience necessary to make it work.

They’re Definitely Not Just Friends

One of the most interesting things about Pattinson and Stewart is that they’re definitely not just friends. Although they’ve never publicly admitted to being a couple, it’s not hard to tell that they have a special bond. Even their friends and family agree. When Stewart was 15 years old, she was bullied so severely that she developed an eating disorder. During this time, she turned to photography as a creative outlet and became infatuated with photographing food. When she got her first professional camera at the age of 16, she started documenting her daily meals and became obsessed with the number of calories she was consuming. She would measure her servings and track her daily food intake. This may have caused her to shunned food and lose a lot of weight, which is why she was so upset about her body image when she was younger. Luckily, she was able to recover from her eating disorder and started gaining the weight she lost. Even though photography was her initial inspiration for dating Pattinson, she eventually grew tired of the constant attention and decided to quit. Despite this, she never stopped loving and appreciating the time she spent with him back in school.

They Want To Keep Things Low-Profile

One of the reasons why Pattinson and Stewart have never really spoken about their relationship is that they don’t want to ruin it by making it public. They still want to keep their relationship under the radar, as much as possible. And that’s probably for the best. Not only is it nice to keep some things private (especially when you’re a celebrity), but it’s also smart not to draw too much attention to yourself. Just ask any of Stewart’s previous relationships. The more people who know about it, the bigger it will seem. And the bigger it seems, the more there is the chance of it getting ruined. That’s certainly not the kind of attention they want for themselves or their relationship.

They Want To Be Together

According to the eyewitnesses and other reliable sources, Pattinson and Stewart want to be together. And they’re not afraid to show it. During one of the many “comebacks” she has staged over the years, Stewart proclaimed that she will “always love [Pattinson] and he will always be my husband.” Although they’ve never admitted to being a couple in so many words, that’s probably because they don’t feel the need to. The more people who know about their relationship, the more likely it is that someone will find out and try to break them up. This especially holds true for Stewart, who has had her share of professional and personal setbacks in the past. But she’s still determined to prove everyone wrong, and in turn, make her man fall in love with her all over again.

They Want To Be Together Forever

Pattinson and Stewart aren’t just interested in being together for a few months or a year. They want to be together forever. And what’s more, they want to do it publicly. This time, they’ve decided to take the plunge and be completely open about their relationship, hoping that it will lead to greater acceptance and less judgment. They also want to show the world that there’s nothing “shady” or “secret” about their relationship. It’s a fairytale ending they’re hoping for, and they’re working hard to make it happen. But as anyone who’s been in a similar situation will tell you, it’s not as easy as it seems. There’s a lot of skepticism, scrutiny, and doubt that goes along with opening up to a new person. Especially when you’re still finding your footing in the world, it’s best to be extra care-full about who you trust and who you keep close to you. The sooner you can establish that you and your significant other are deserving of each other’s trust, the better. In a perfect world, what we have here is a textbook example of true love and commitment. But until then, we’re going to have to settle for the sweet, if somewhat unrealistic, fantasy that they’re creating for themselves.
