Nothing quite soothes the aching heart like picking up, dusting yourself off, and moving forward. Of course, Robert Pattinson has plenty on his plate now that he's officially split with Kristen Stewart, like hanging out with his dogs and a whole onslaught of film roles coming up — but that doesn't mean we can't play fantasy matchmaker and see what bright young stars might make Rob's
skin soul sparkle.
Naturally, we don't know Robert Pattinson or his personal taste in women, but we have communed with him on a spiritual level. We'll admit it: We can't perfectly predict what might happen somewhere in the future. (Or maybe is happening, right now, in an alternate universe.) Join us on a very scientific journey, where we rate who might be able to fill the empty, worn-in Converse in RPatz's heart.
Indie darling Brit Marling is quietly stealing our hearts with her subdued, intense performances and true creative chops. It's been no secret that Rob has been wanting to leave his Twilight days behind and venture into more heady acting, and Marling could be just the inspiration to do so...
...But Marling is a serious actor with a capital A. One of the reasons that Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson appeared to enjoy each other is because of their ability to have a good laugh in public, while Marling is as controlled and focused on her career as can be.

The strong and alluring Mia Wasikowska has been a charming — but elusive — figure since her Alice In Wonderland debut...and this is just the type of mystery we could see turning Pattinson into a smitten kitten. Also, the duo are playing opposite one another in the upcoming Cronenberg movie Maps To The Stars. We all know that RPatz likes to get close to his co-stars, too.
...But Wasikowska seems so outside of Hollywood that we are unsure if it would ever pan out. Also, though she is beautiful and alluring, she doesn't have the perpetual middle finger up that Robert seems to have.

Dark, mysterious, and often unsmiling, Mara's vibe sounds right up RPatz's alley. Except, of course, Mara is Oscar-nominated and has more than just "Best Kiss" at the VMA's under her awards belt. (Sorry, Kristen). Similar to Stewart, Mara is a red carpet queen who dresses down in real life, and has a hint of edge to her, as well. She might just be Robert's perfect match...
...But, Mara is currently in a relationship with another offspring of a powerful union: Charlie McDowell, son of Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen. This seems more of her speed instead of the super-famous RPatz and his horde of obsessive fans.

Secretly, we kind of think that Robert Pattinson might need an older woman who can teach him the ways of negotiating fame without selling out, choose larger roles while maintaining time to work the indie circuit, and be a brilliant angel of light sent here to charm us all with a heavenly complexion.
...But we can't really think of a why or a why not. The randomness of this pairing is both what makes it work and not.

Taylor Swift is the consummate serial monogamist. Robert Pattinson is the consummate serial monogamist. Also, Taylor Swift is the diametric opposite of Kristen Stewart. This just might make sense, and prove to be ripe for Swift song fodder for years to come...
...But, with Robert Pattinson being one of the most closely guarded, publicity-shy A-List celebrities (did he ever comment on his relationship with Kristen? We don't think so), the idea of the circus that comes along with Taylor Swift would be daunting. Robert might wither under the spotlight.

Zoe Saldana has both blockbuster and indie cred, and with Star Trek dropping, she has really been proving to the world what a shining — and beautiful — star she is. Saldana may be one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood...
...But heading from Bradley Cooper to Robert Pattinson is a bit like heading from the frying pan and into the fire, right?

If you recall, several years ago, in the days before Robsten, rumors swirled about Robert and his Twilight co-star Ashley Greene. Now, with Kristen out of the way, maybe Rob might retrace his steps and go back to visit what he might have missed? Sounds totally feasible, given the fact that Greene's star has only risen...
...But the last thing we would envision Pattinson doing is extending Twilight mania. Also, think of the death threats Twihards would issue if Edward started dating Alice? Though, the fan fic communities would really have a field day with this one.

We all know that Mr. Pattinson likes a good smolder, and no one can stop a paparazzo quite in their tracks like Cara Delevigne. Rob could take a page out of the book of DiCaprio and pursue one of the most interesting, punky, and sought-after models in the world, and one from his motherland, to boot. She's a great fit...
...But she seems a bit like a party girl for Rob, the die-hard romantic. Could you imagine him sitting front row during fashion month? Yeah, we can't either.

If Jennifer Lawrence and Robert Pattinson got together, the world would actually explode.
we don't really want the world to explode. Also: It's Unlikely

Look, these ladies are pretty, but they've got nothing on #1. And you just know that when R. Patz looks soulfully into the camera, he is staring into the depths of your being, whispering "Hey Kimberly, or Paula, or whatever your name is...I love you." Yep, sounds about right.
