Cupid's Pulse Article: Kristen Stewart Says She Understands That ‘Whole Love Triangle Thing’Cupid's Pulse Article: Kristen Stewart Says She Understands That ‘Whole Love Triangle Thing’

By Nicole Weintraub

Kristen Stewart sympathizes with her character Bella Swan’s love triangle from the Twilight series according to “There weren’t too many difficulties with the love triangle thing…if you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, then you can have what you want,” she explained regarding the love triangle in the franchise in which Bella Swan is caught between vampire Edward Cullen (played by real life boyfriend Rob Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob Black (played by Taylor Lautner). Though, perhaps she was seeking empathy for her character from her own love triangle that erupted this past July. Stewart was caught having an affair with her older married costar, thus ensuing in her breakup with Pattinson. Though, the two have reconciled recently and will be promoting the movie together as a couple.

What do you do if you find yourself as part of a love triangle?

Cupid’s Advice:

Love triangles — we’ve seen them in Twilight and in Stewart’s own personal life. Though, what do you do when you’re a part of one yourself? Here are some tips on what to do:

1. Take a step back: Before you get too wrapped up in a love triangle, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Are you currently in a relationship? Is someone else involved in the love triangle already involved with someone? Find out all of the details before you act on impulse.

2. Check yourself: Do you really want to be the person that breaks up someone else’s relationship or marriage? Do you want to be the other one? Before you throw all of your convictions out of the window, take a look at what you are planning to do. How would you feel if you were in the other person’s shoes?

3. Be cautious: Getting out of a love triangle can be very messy, so do your best to not to step on anyone else’s toes. You definitely do not want to make enemies. Keep your best interests at heart and sort out your own feelings before acting on them.
