Robert Pattinson says he once tried to make a fan's dream come true by going on a date with her -- only to have her ditch him afterwards!

Robert PattinsonIf you think Robert Pattinson would be your dream date, you may want to think again. He's boring and spends the whole time talking about himself -- and that's according to him!

Pattinson revealed that in 2008 he actually made a random fan's dream come true by taking her on a date, but she was so bored with his conversation that she ditched him.

"I was playing Salvador Dali in Spain and there was this one girl waiting outside my apartment every day for about three weeks," Pattinson revealed to David Letterman. "There was one day when I was just so chronically bored I said to her, 'Do you want to just go to dinner or something? No one else wants to hang out with me.'"

"Her parents had a restaurant, she took me there I complained about everything in my life for about two hours, then she gave me the bill to pay and was never back outside my apartment ever again."

That's one way to get rid of a stalker. Since then, the Breaking Dawn star says he has started to rely on the more traditional celebrity escape mechanism: disguises.

"I attempt to [disguise myself] -- it doesn't particularly work ever," Pattinson said. "I started off just trying to make strange expressions, but that's not a particularly good tactic. You try and get little tics and things. You try and draw attention to the wrong part of your body, but that doesn't really work at all. The best disguise is repellent."

Getting recognized isn't all that bad, though. "It definitely feels like job security, in a funny sort of way, if you've been avoiding it for a while and you suddenly go out and people are still screaming. Whew," he said.
