Emma Watson Says She's 'Self-Partnered' | 22 Words

Back in 2014, JK Rowling told Harry Potter fans what they'd always wanted to hear. "Hermione and Harry should have ended up together." Preach, Joanne.

We always kinda knew that an Emma/Rufus relationship wouldn't happen in real life - they're super good friends - but, for a while, we thought that another crazier one might have: Draco and Hermoine. Well... not really. It's a confusing one. Emma Watson's dating history has remained under wraps over the decade we've known her. The actress keeps all little details private.

However, all of our dreams have been crushed since Emma Watson recently announced that she is now "self-partnered," and she's very "happy" about it.

Keep scrolling to find out why she prefers to use this term over "being single."

Emma Watson's dating history has primarily been kept under wraps...

However, little details have seeped into the hands of the media, so I'm going to take you through some of her most iconic relationships that had us all shook.

1. Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson.

That's right. When these two were presenting an award during the 2018 Golden Globes, the whole world couldn't help but speak about the natural chemistry they had.

But they have actually been friends for a long time...

Did you forget that Pattinson was in fact, the cute Hufflepuff member, Cedric Diggory? The two met on set while filming for Goblet of Fire and have been friends ever since so that "chemistry" you were talking about, is more friendly than anything else.

2. Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet.

Just after the dating rumors with Pattinson had been sparked, fans quickly jumped ship to support the actual relationship she was in at the time with Chord Overstreet.

However, by October, it was rumored that the two had split...

The evidence came after Watson was seen cozying up with another man.

3. Emma Watson and Brendan Wallace.

Tech CEO, Brendan Wallace, was this "other man."

It was rumored that the two had dated until April the following year before calling it quits.

Wallace was seen getting close and personal with another actress at the time, Alexandra Daddario.

4. Emma Watson and Tom Felton.

But perhaps the most famous coupling of all these rumors had to be with her former co-star, Tom Felton.

The Harry Potter fandom has been shipping this relationship since this iconic punch.

Their relationship on-screen has always been that of a dumb little boy picking on his crush to get her attention, never anything more. Tom's character also sided with the most evil wizard in the world, so it's hard to forgive him for that.

The cast has been notoriously private about their relationships off-screen.

It's no surprise that we've learned very little about their little band of misfit wizards off-screen.

But now that they've grown up...

Things have started to change, especially after their more "grown up" projects. The cast has been more open with the public about their personal lives than ever before.

Emma Watson shared this photo on Twitter and Instagram.

Along with a heartfelt note wishing her former co-star good luck on his new YouTube Premium series. Of course, the Internet went crazy with this glimmer of information. That, along with a cute little video Emma also happened to share...

Emma also posted this adorable video of the two of them skateboarding in Santa Monica.

How cute is that? While neither star has provided an update on their relationship status, it certainly looks like the pair could be more than just friends and former co-stars. Either way, it's nice to see them getting along off-screen.

Sadly, it doesn't seem like this news is going to be confirmed any time soon...

I know, your "Dramione" heart is probably aching as you read this but it's okay. Both the stars are still good friends, and they're both happy being single.

Emma Watson recently confirmed her single status.

In an interview with British Vogue, the actress, who is turning thirty very soon, described what it's like to be reaching such an all-important milestone.

She explained that she likes to refer to herself as "self-partnered" as opposed to "single."

"I never believed the whole 'I’m happy single' spiel... it took me a long time, but I’m very happy. I call it being self-partnered," Emma said.

She also talked about the difficulties of having such a "perfect" life.

Watson, herself, had never claimed such a thing, but from the media's perception of her, that is what it seems to be. However, she mentioned how her fears of turning thirty were actually encouraged with the whole mindset that a woman must have a "husband, baby and stable career" by such an age.

"Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal."

"Vut to twenty-nine, and I’m like, 'Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious'," Emma said. "And I realise it’s because there is suddenly this bl**dy influx of subliminal messaging around. If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning thirty, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out... there’s just this incredible amount of anxiety."

Even despite her happiness being single, people were shocked to see this scene.

Watson was seen making out with a mystery man outside a bakery in London just under 2 weeks ago. I mean, she's a grown-ass woman, she can do what she pleases.

And between advocating for women's rights and her acting career, she deserves it!
