It’s Sunday once again, and we reflect on how we fell for Rob…
This letter is long overdue. It’s a thank you letter. And it’s almost 3 months late. I haven’t wanted to admit this because I saw it happening to me and thought it was a little pathetic. But I realized it is what it is and everyone needs something to help them get over the hump sometimes.
What hump was that for me? A nasty breakup. Sounds simple. Not so much. A nasty, been on a roller coaster for all of my 20s, thought he was my soulmate, breakup. I TKO’d in the relationship…finally threw in the towel. I was devastated I finally saw that my guy was not meant for me. In the past, our many breakups would take me ages to get over. Together a year, take a a year to get over him. Together again, take another year to get over it. I was a wreck, you can imagine that kind of back and forth depletes you emotionally. So this final round, I was worried I’d go to a darker place than before since I was finally admitting we weren’t good for each other. But something saved me. Saved me from drowning. From losing myself for far too long. It was you, Rob.
This is when I feel a bit like a loser since you’re a celebrity and yes, I had a miracle encounter and got to meet you but I’m intelligent and I am definitely not one of your fans that thinks we were meant for each other if only you got to know me. That being said…this is how I fell for you.

I knew who you were vaguely when Twilight came out. It was huge so how could I not know. But I didn’t think you were special *walk of shame*. Those thoughts feel blasphemous now. I had a couple of friends tell me, “Read Twilight! It’s right up your alley!” “Yeah yeah”, I said. “Sure. Teen fiction.” But I decided to give it a read for the new year. Well not quite. I only bought the book on my iPhone to test out a new reader app I got. When I wanted to see how you buy books I couldn’t think of a book I wanted to buy. Then I remembered my friends said TWILIGHT! It was $7.99. $7.99 that changed my life. I didn’t read the book until 4 months later. In the meantime you went to the Oscars. I watch the Oscars. I adore the Oscars. I remember how KSTEW dissed the Oscars…but you didn’t and went anyway. I didn’t remember you much. Saw you on the carpet but was more into Penelope Cruz’s dress. Seems nuts now. I’d follow the lint you drop on camera because it was a part of you. Crazy.
Then April barreled down and I don’t know why I decided to start Twilight but I did. I haven’t been the same. The rest is a whirlwind. Like most fans, I finished the book in a week and a half (I stretched out BD because I didn’t want it all to end). I watched the movie immediately after. I thought you were great as Edward but wanted to know more about you, the cast, the movie, the series, the phenomenon. So off to the internet I go. When I love something I must know everything about it. So I searched and I searched and thats when I truly found you. It was right around the time that you had your birthday. I had seen old interviews (the laughter! the comedy! the charm!), heard your songs (the voice! the guitar! the talent!), looked at old pictures (those eyes! those lips! that hair! THE JAW!), and realized you were just a living god. It was around this time that things with my guy were heading south. He broke up with me right after you went to Cannes, got shirtless for the world in Italy, and the MTV Awards aired. Those 3 events were what did me in. No turning back. I was Robsessed. Things ended with my guy and I spent about a week feeling lousy and sorry for myself…but then you went to New York. And you filmed Remember Me. You gave me endless pictures. I discovered the best blogs about you. I discovered the heavenly hell that is Twitter. I discovered everything I could ever know about you (well only the stuff that’s publicly been put out there…no need to freak). And then my miracle. A month ago, I ran into you. Well you damn near ran into me but whatever. It was the pinnacle of what all of this meant to me. This random celebrity saved my heart and I actually got to meet him. Kinda chokes me up.
It’s still embarrassing that you were my healing method. I feel sheepish thinking about it. But I can’t care about that really. I can’t explain why you healed me up and made me move away from the bad relationship but you did. Maybe I wasn’t suppose to read Twilight any earlier than I did. I think I was suppose to fall head over heels for you exactly when I did. So I thank you, Rob. You’ll never know who I am and never read this story but the thanks must still be put out there in the universe. When I met you I told you “Congratulations on all your success”…you smiled sweetly and said “Thank you so much”……no Rob, thank YOU. So much.
A fan forever indebted,
I don’t think any explanation is needed tinkrbell! I have a feeling you’re not alone in calling Rob your “healing method.” What do you all think!?
