The perennial bachelor takes his new girlfriend public, but is she OK with never being Mrs. Clooney?
Part of George Clooney's allure is that he's publicly stated that he will never get married again. It seems women only want him more now—it's the draw of the game that attracts women to him (maybe his good looks have something to do with it, too). They want to be the game-changer, the one to break the spell and transform him from singleton to spouse.
There's been much speculation that the 50-year-old actor's most recent ex-girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, whom he dated for two years, wanted a ring. The reason for their split was due to Clooney's unwavering adamancy in his stance on marriage. She wanted to take her relationship with Clooney to the next level, but he refused.

Perhaps Clooney is hoping for a romantic partnership without the whole marriage thing, kind of like Maya Rudolph and P.T. Anderson, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, and Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Maybe he can achieve it with his newest girlfriend, Stacy Keibler. George Clooney Rebounds With Former WWE Wrestler Stacy Keibler
The 31-year-old former WWE wrestler was spotted out with the silver fox in Toronto this past weekend partying it up at the Toronto Film Festival. A source tells Us Weekly they were, "Comfortable and affectionate and seemed socially poised as a couple. The two clearly work not only as a pair, but also independently. [Stacy] really stood on her own. George was not overprotective and didn't have to look after her."
The source also notes that Keibler is an independent woman: "One of the recurring themes of the night was that Stacy had her own conversations going on and that she wasn't following Clooney around like a puppy dog... She was confident in her own space. She would come over to [George] and rub his back, then separate from him again... I've never seen him more comfortable." 5 Signs That George Clooney May Actually Commit
It sounds like George has found an independent woman who fits his needs (for the moment). Do you think these two will have a domestic partnering in their future, or will Stacy fare like all the other ex-girlfriends?
