I've been gone all morning...
And when I finally got a chance to get online?
Over 300 emails.
And over what?
Robert on the Today Show.
I decided to watch the show for myself.
Come to my own conclusions.
So... I did.
And my first thoughts?
THIS is what all the 'hoopla' is about?
This is what he said after being asked if he
wanted to settle down and get married.
“I don’t think settling down should be the same thing as getting married.”
“I mean, I guess settling down just means not sleeping with everybody. I don’t like the idea of having to settle, though.”
"I would like to go on a date, I'm just saying. I'm just putting that out there because I never go on dates anymore."
People have said that he doesn't want to settle down.
I didn't get that at all.
In my opinion...
He said he doesn't like the idea of having to SETTLE... period.
Meaning that he doesn't think he should just accept
anything but what he truly wants and desires.
Honestly... who does want to just settle??
As for the date comment?
My first thought was that Rob was missing that part
of his life...
He never gets to do that anymore.
He's busy working a lot.
He's busy being followed and stalked relentlessly...
He would just like to experience the simple joy...
of going on a date.
I guess you could interpret any way you want to.
The haters will claim this is Rob's way of saying he's single.
All he said was that he wanted to go on a date.
I might add here that my DH and I
have to put aside one night a week
as a "date" night...
Because with our busy lives and
so many people wanting a piece of our day...
We have to make time for each other.
So could this be what Robert is looking for?
Time to spend with someone he cares about?
I can only imagine how difficult it is
for someone as high profile as he is
(and Kristen... of course)
To simply go on a 'date'.
Take his comments as you will.
Everything Robert and Kristen say is
analyzed to death, anyway.
I still know what I see.
And there is no disguising how Robert feels about Kristen.
How they feel about each other.
That's my opinion.
Whenever those two are together...
There are sparks flying everywhere.
If you don't want to see the sparks?
I've been seeing them since day one.
And they haven't cooled down since.
I'm not afraid to say that I think
they are together.
And I won't be afraid to admit when
I no longer think that they are.
But right now?
No doubt in my mind.
The other day a Hater said this...
"If they announce at a press conference that they're together,
it'll scream more PR than an actual confirmation."
You see what I'm getting at?
That it doesn't really matter what
Robert and Kristen say anymore.
Or don't say.
People are going to continue to believe
what they want to believe.
If Rob and Kristen announced they were together
right this minute on TV...
It wouldn't change a damn thing.
That being said...
This past week...
With the MTV Movie Awards...
and this press conference...
Has only reinforced that
Robert and Kristen
are indeed in a relationship.
I haven't seen Rob this giddy and happy
and goofy and charming...
Since the early Twilight days.
Before all the madness really began.
I like this Robert.
I've missed him... so much!
And I think Kristen has a lot to do with
his brilliant happiness.
Bye for now.
P.S. Haters are all over Gossip Cop for 'debunking'
the whole date nonsense.
"Who are they to tell us what Rob meant?"
But then again...
Who are you to tell us what Rob meant?
