Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been forced to deal with one of the largest annoyances in Hollywood: the invasion of privacy.  Recently, the young couple were using a secluded lakeside home as a way to escape the limelight together during filming breaks, according to E! Online.  The home, a property nestled in trees and crafted with modern architecture, was “Robsten’s” alleged getaway retreat.  Unfortunately,  the property was soon made public by invading paparazzi and avid fans.  Although Pattinson and Stewart are no longer renting the home, they have reportedly moved to an even more secluded property, hoping to finally gain some privacy.

How can you ensure private time in your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Plan ahead: Take a look at your schedules and find a time when you both are free from all work-related stress.  Use this time to reconnect in your own home.  The comfortable setting will make your private time more intimate.

2. Learn to say no: No matter how many events you are invited to, you can’t always accept each and every one. Though it may be tough, clearing your schedule is sometimes necessary to have some quiet time with your partner.

3. Leave some space: Though seclusion from the outside world can do wonders for a relationship, too much of it can backfire.  Be sure to give your partner some space periodically.  You want your dates to be a breath of fresh air, not a mandatory rendezvous.
