Sydney: `Twilight` star Robert Pattinson has opened up about his dating life or the non-existence of it.

Pattinson, 24, who is rumoured to be romancing co-star Kristen Stewart, 20, confessed the huge success of the vampire franchise makes it difficult to date.

"I would like to go on a date," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying in an interview on the US Today show.

"I`m just saying. I`m just putting that out there. Because I never go on dates anymore," he stated.

Though by dating he does not mean that he is ready to settle down and start a family.

"I don`t think settling down should be the same thing as getting married," he said.

"I mean, I guess settling down just means not sleeping with everybody. I don`t like the idea of having to settle, though," he added.
