Robert Pattinson and Riley Keough haven’t been spotted together since June 29, when they were seen hanging out together in the actor’s pickup truck. Because of that, there’s been speculation that the two have broken up. But fret not — Rob has just decided to slow things down a bit.
Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough Dating — Why He’s Slowing Down Relationship
“[Rob and Riley] are still seeing each other, however, it’s mostly physical. Rob was a little scared off that this new relationship was going to be a media firestorm, so he has slowed things down, so mostly it’s a physical relationship. They don’t consider it dating, but everyone around them does. And I wouldn’t say they are in love, but they could easily get there. He is afraid that he will will get hurt or hurt her, so he is treading lightly because he does genuinely like her.”
We’re so happy to hear that Rob, 27, is taking things with Riley, 24, slowly. Rebound relationships often don’t last, but by slowing things down a bit, there tends to be less pressure. Rob’s being smart.
Kristen Stewart’s Affair Affected Robert Pattinson’s Ability to Trust
Furthermore, after Kristen Stewart cheated on Rob with Rupert Sanders, his trust was irrevocably broken. Even though he’s dating someone new, it’s likely hard for him to trust anyone at the level he once trusted K-Stew, 23. That’ll take time, but we’re happy to see Rob having fun in the process.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Can Rob ever have a normal relationship?
