Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson, rumoured to be back with his ex-Kristen Stewart, is keeping things out of the public eye this time.
Pattinson feels that he needs to protect his privacy, but Stewart does not feel the same. She wants to be normal with him, the way they used to be.
"She wants to go to concerts and other places with him, like they used to. Rob on the other hand, is being a lot more cautious and isn't ready to have everyone know his business when it comes to who he's dating," sources close to the couple stated.
Pattinson appears unwilling to go public about the reconciliation.
"Rob doesn't want to hide his relationship with Kristen but doesn't see an alternative right now. Concealing their relationship is Rob's way of protecting their relationship," a source stated.
Stewart apparently is willing to compromise on this aspect due to the respect she has for Pattinson.
"He has been very adamant with Kristen to keep everything hush-hush between them, and even though Kristen wants to go public, out of respect for Rob, she will continue to keep their love for each other to themselves - at least for the time being," the source added.
The couple have been spotted together at several places of late.
Reports also suggest that the couple checked into a hotel in Palm Springs, California, for a few nights in order to spend some quality time together.
''They snuck away to one of their favourite hide-outs for a couple of nights. Both left their houses in LA under cover of darkness and Rob brought their two dogs as well. They're not back together yet but they desperately miss each other," a source told The Sun.
''Kristen still loves him and the ball is in his court. She drives him crazy but at the same time he can't seem to break things off.''
Pattinson and Kristen Stewart split a second time after she got back in touch with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. All hell reportedly broke loose between the perfect pair last year when Stewart confessed to having an affair with Sanders behind Pattinson's back. She later apologised.
