LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Does Playing Hard To Get — Like K-Stew Did With Rob — Keep Your Boyfriend Devoted Once He Has you?

Kristen Stewart seriously made Robert Pattinson WORK to become her BF. But now that the two are together, is her aloof act still as effectively keeping his interest?

We all know that the key to winning a guy’s heart isn’t by being completely perfect looking, having a ton of money or even an Albert Einstein-esque IQ. Nope, what really seals the deal for a guy is when you “just aren’t that in to him.” It’s a challenge,  a dare. If you aren’t all over him, he’s going to chase you — and want you all the more.

Such is the case for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. After meeting on the set of Twilight in 2008, the two realized they were into each other — but K-Stew, now 20, had a pesky boyfriend, Michael Angarano, to deal with. Although Kristen reportedly broke up with Michael in January of 2009 — just two months before filming Twilight Saga: New Moon — she and Rob did not start seriously dating until AFTER that film wrapped, and didn’t become a couple until the production of Twilight Saga: Eclipse began in August of that year. Essentially, she made him wait a LONG time.

But does playing hard to get in the beginning guarantee that your relationship will last? Yes and no. In the case of Rob and Kristen, he clearly cherishes her, and sees her as something of value — especially as it took this beautiful boy (who has no problems getting ladies, I’m sure) so long to win her heart. The downside of this is that Kristen can never really be too gushy, too effusive. She has to keep him on his toes, always have the upper hand.

Given K-Stew’s notoriously cool as a cucumber personality, I’m sure this isn’t much of a problem for her. But for the rest of us — God, that sounds completely exhausting! At some point in a relationship, we yearn for things to be equal, to love one another the same amount and to not have to play a semi-game of cat and mouse.

If Kristen doesn’t mind the power struggle, good for her — she’ll always have her man (as evidenced by their two romantic dates in two days this week). But personally, I want a partner — not a puppy dog.

Rob is deeply in love with Kristen, and Kristen is in love with him as well. I don’t know how much but they’re very much into each together…….Kristen is a beautiful girl, I don’t think she’s deliberately aloof, she seems very awkward, always thinking of a million things. When you got as much money as her, you would be quite distant too!

wow, you sure make a lot of assumptions based on gossip and photo assumption. Please, all the paps in Vancouver in 2009 during Eclipse shooting said Kristen was always hanging all over him when it was safe to do so and unpappable(in exclusive restaurants). She was practially sitting on his lap hugging him throughout a meal. from what Rob has said, it sounds like Kristen is just really frank and honest with him and does not kiss up to him, and I’m sure that’s a plus. everyone is kissing up to him right now, and he says he doesn’t trust it.

Seriously Laura, didn’t you hear what Rob said that Kristen is very sweet. In private, KStew is so sweet to Rob. See the KOL photos and most of all the Montreal kiss pics. It was Kristen who was all over Rob in that Montreal make out.

Laura, you’re being awfully tough on RPatz…I don’t think he’s any kind of dog…even a cute puppy dog… and I don’t think KStew is a ‘cool cucumber’…maybe just reserved, shy or private.
It probably is smart to play it a bit cool to begin with in a relationship, but the cat and mouse of the ‘chase’ is not how to play ‘forever’ when you’re really in love. Having the upper hand doesn’t win you anything.

HL needs to get a clue. Just because Kristen acts one way in public doesn’t mean she acts the same way in private. What you people need to understand is that Rob loves her just the way she is. Rob and Kristen are more alike than you realize.

Amen to that. They knew they were soulmates from the beginning. It’s just that Kristen is such a private person and had to get her own life in shape before she could be with Rob and I respect him very much for waiting on her. I absolutely think they will make it.

omg, preach it. All this lame pop psychobabble from GOSSIP columnists are lame. From most accounts, Kristen is reserved in public, but among friends, she’s a goof. Robert is similarly more relaxed out of the public eye. Trying to act like you know what’s their relationship dyanmic is LAME HL, especially when you don’t even have basic facts right. Kristen was seen publicly with MA by her side until spring of 2009, she said exclusively in the feb. issue of nylon that MA was her bf. You guys don’t even do basic google searches on basic facts, and you think we’re going to listen to you talk about their relationship????

Seriously HL, is Laura a licenced psychologist or something..? Just be careful…

…AND Laura, envy is the root of all evils. How much more if you can see Rob serenading Kristen with his guitar :):) Lets face it Rob is the sweetest and the most romantic BF. Kristen, is really one lucky girl. She won over millions of contenders:)))..and that includes you Laura:))

…AND Laura, Rob is not a dog. He’s just verrryy in love.

Once again, Hollywoodlife appears to be absolutely clueless about the dynamic of the Rob/Kristen relationship. I would never take any love advice from such liars.
