For weeks we've had confirmation that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a thing. Robert is clearly the more vocal of the two and, thanks to his British upbringing (and except for their bold hookups), appears to be pursuing Kristen in perfect gentlemanly fashion. Celebrity Love - Kristen Stewart: Robert Pattinson Is "My Husband"
The fashion in which one presents him- or herself in a romantic situation is clearly important to both Rob and Kristen—read that last line like this: they like to shop. Paparazzi caught them out this week at Vancouver's Retro Rock Vintage Clothing, a rock and hippie-inspired chain boutique featuring "Classic vintage style for your inner rock star." They took their time shopping for the standard fare like jackets, pants and t-shirts and apparently fans clamored for photos with the Twilight's-most-wanted duo, as did the shopkeeper. According to reports, Rob and Kris happily obliged.
However according to Showbiz Spy, Robert and Kristen are sick of living and loving in the public eye. One source was quoted saying, “Rob and Kristen hate being recognized wherever they go. They’re always polite to their fans, but they just want to be left alone so they can be a normal couple.” It's reported they keep their PDAs downlow when they're out and about so that the public won't speculate that they're more than good friends.
To that we say this: Kristen. Robert Pattinson went shopping with you. If the jig wasn't up a long time ago then it is now, because a man shopping with a woman equals he loves you. And we, your public, love you together. In fact the only person besides your fans who might be more excited than you being spotted at Retro Rock together is the owner of Retro Rock. Say cheese!
