Should You Put Your Career Ahead Of Your Relationship By Enduring Long Separations Like Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Do?

R-Patz and K-Stew sometimes let a whole month go by without seeing one another. Is it smart to focus on their careers over their relationship?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are definitely in love, there’s no denying it. However, the hottest couple of the  moment are repeatedly separated for month-long jaunts to work on different projects now that the last of the Twilight films, Breaking Dawn, has wrapped. Should they be focusing on their mutual careers or more on making their love last?

The two had been apart for nearly a month while K-Stew, 21, filmed Snow White and the Huntsman in the 25-year-old British heartthrob’s native London. They reunited over Labor Day weekend when R-Patz flew to visit his girlfriend.

The last time to two were spotted together was during San Diego’s superfan convention, Comic Con, on July 24; she  landed at London’s Heathrow airport on July 31 holding his guitar for safekeeping. She hasn’t been entirely Rob-free in Londontown, though: since arriving in the U.K., she’s had dinner with Rob’s parents and sister, Lizzie.

Given that they’re often apart, are these two being smart to put their careers ahead of their relationship? Should you be doing the same?

I think Rob and Kristen’s situation is very isolated in the sense that it seems to be working for them, but it is working for a reason. They have been a couple for years now and had feelings for one another even longer; this isn’t some new and uncertain romance. Secondly, it appears that they have a one-month rule: meaning, they can’t go longer than one month without seeing one another, which is actually very sensible. Kristen employed a similar tactic by visiting Rob on the Toronto set of Cosmopolis. Yup, you guessed it — they had been apart for exactly one month.

K-Stew continued to do the right thing by hanging out with his family independently of him. It shows how strong their relationship is, and how confident she is that it will last. It actually seems like she enjoys being around his parents, which is always a tough step in any relationship.

Also, their careers are red hot at the moment. They’re beating older, more established actors for plum parts because of the fame they’ve gained from Twilight and it would be foolish to ignore their time in the sun in the notoriously fickle world of Hollywood.

But how does this apply to you? Well, if you’ve just started seeing someone and are unsure of where it’s going to go, then you need to be just as careful about your career. Don’t let your work fall by the wayside just because you think you’re in love, or you’re excited and enthralled by your new man. It’s all about finding the happy balance of work and love.

Definitely do as K-Stew and R-Patz have: these two know how to conquer any distances.

They are spotted at work events or staged dates, to which Rob brings a third wheel, every 6 weeks or so, because this is as long as the sheep can go with out PROOF of the love they think exists, and the standard of proof they accept becomes less and less, now all they need is the two of them being in the same country. LMAO

i really like how they work it out and it’s possible that they’ve been seeing each other w/out getting caught w/c i think is quite enjoyable on their part to be able to get away from prying eyes…

They had been apart for 35 days. KStew left LA on July 31st. Check your calendars, HL.

But that’s nothing new, Rob spent 7 weeks alone in Toronto this summer and he spent months on the set of Bel Ami last year while she was in the States. Unless they’re filming a Twilight movie they hardly ever spend any time in the same city.

Rob flew to London for the christening of Tom Sturridge’s nephew. Kristen worked with Tom on On The Road, a film they can’t find a distributor for or even get accepted at a film festival so far.

Pretty sure they fly private some times…There were pics of him at a private airport that were taken down in Toronto, so it is plausible he’s flown private from LA to London….Anyway, I actually think that they know they need to concentrate on their careers-Twilight is ending and now is the time they need to establish themselves.

Also, what is with the thing about OTR…Bel Ami was finished nearly two years ago and just know is getting a release date. OTR finished several months ago and they are still editing. If it is not released for Sundance, then maybe you might have a point. But for now, it doesn’t seem too strange.

Actually....

As usual, you are wrong Calendar Girl. Rob has already visited Kristen in London 2x since Snow White started filming. He flies private jet a lot. He is in London to visit family, friends, and attend the christening, and guess what? Also, to visit Kristen.

Consider a new hobby other than counting days that are not even correct.

Rob also did not spend 7 weeks alone in Toronto. Kristen flew (under the radar) several times to see him. Once again, just because YOU don’t see them together, does not mean they are apart. Just a thought……

Not that its any of our business, but I thought I would correct “Charmed”. Kristen, did indeed visit Rob in Hungry around April 2010 while he was filming Bel Ami. I believe it was the longest they had been separated, approx. 45 days. As far as Toronto is concerned, Kristen was there when he returned from promoting Water for Elephants & stayed until approx. a week after his birthday in May. He flew to LA for the weekend for the MTV movie awards June 3-6 & one month later on July 5, Kristen flew to be with him in Toronto for approx. 5 days. Again, not any of our business.

I agree…however, I think that just because you don’t see them visiting each other within that month, that does not mean that they do not see each other. I think they see each other more than they show the public, via private jet.
