Be honest, you don't believe it, do you? The Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are dating rumor. How could they be dating, or about to get engaged, when they're rarely within 1000 miles of each other most days?

And even if they wanted to, can you imagine how hard it would be for RPattz and KStew to have a relationship of any kind whilst being hounded by the paparazzi?

And things are no easier for their fictional alter egos, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. If you've read the books you know Edward was transformed into a deadly vampire in 1918.

Bella on the other hand is dull as a post. She's so normal it's almost paranormal, just another high school girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest, where - lets face it - there's no shortage of them.

For that reason Pattinson believes that Jacob Black is in many ways a better fit for Bella than Edward is. No matter that Black is a shape-shifting werewolf.

"Their relationship is so much easier, Bella and Jacob, because he's just a normal kid," Pattinson told the press this week. "Edward's got to remember, or learn, how to be a normal 17-year-old, because he's never bothered."

"The whole thing is him having to accept the consequences of being with Bella, which means catching up to the same pace of every other 17-year-old in the contemporary world, emotionally and intellectually and everything, and realizing he's quite a long way behind," Pattinson said.
