Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford admit concerns about having a long-distance relationship


091811-nikki-main.jpgNikki Gil revealed that boyfriend Billy Crawford’s plans to pursue his international career again are getting more and more concrete. “Nagkakaroon na ng mga sulatan, tawag, nagkakaroon na ng mga petsa, so the reality of taking care of a long distance relationship, medyo nag-uumpisa na siyang mag-sink in,” she admitted. “Andun na ‘yung usapan naming [na], ‘Paano na ‘yan apat na buwan, limang buwan, anim na buwan [na mawawala].’ At saka hindi lang ‘yung what if, eto na, meron ng mga petsa.”

She confessed that the possibility of having a long-distance relationship is becoming a concern to them. “’Yun na nga ang malaking question. ‘Yun na nga [ang] sino-solve na nga namin ang isyu na ‘yan,” Nikki shared. She continued that she is worried because the distance would mean a big adjustment for the two of them. “Sinong ‘di kakabahan? Not that I don’t trust him or he doesn’t trust me, kaya nga relationship eh, kailangan nagkakasama kayo, kailangan meron kayong mundong parehong ginagalawan. Pero ‘pag nagkahiwalay kami ng sobrang tagal magkakaroon kami ng ibang mundo at mas effort talaga to make it work. You’re used to doing things together and then maga-adjust ka.”

Nevertheless, the singer actress is keeping optimistic and shared that she knows that long-distance relationships can worked. “I’m really not one who will keep him from going and I will not. Because gusto ko ito for him so if it means kahit forever go. Skype na lang tayo. Kaya nga may technology.”

For his part, Billy shared that he might go to Paris, France come January next year to focus on his career. He shared that he could have flown earlier but his commitments in the country have kept him from going. “Once nakakontrata ka mahirap umalis. Second, nag-enjoy ako dito sa Pilipinas, minahal ko ang Pilipinas ngayon more so kesa sa dati. Nakilala ko ang bansa ko at mas nakilala ko ang publiko na hinaharap ko araw-araw.” He said that his personal life, particularly with Nikki has been such a source of happiness to him. “So all in all blessing na rin. Bakit ko itatapon? Bakit lang ako aalis all of a sudden ‘di ba? Kung sa France I stayed six years bakit ba naman dito ‘di pwede?

More than running after fame, Billy explained that he is after a long-lasting career. “It’s a blessing din naman kapag nakahanap tayo ng trabaho outside the Philippines pero ‘yung longevity ng career ang hihabol ko hindi ‘yung kasikatan, hindi yung magiging star o maging leading man.” He added that his stay here in the Philippines helped him to be more recognized and be loved by his countrymen. “Dito mas natuto akong mag-host kasi sa France ‘di naman ako nagho-host. So nage-enjoy ka. Parang si Michael Jordan, you’re getting paid so much money everyday para maglaro ng paborito niyang sport. Ako naman ganon din. Nandito ako, trabaho ko ‘to at kasama ko pa nage-enjoy ako kasama ko pa ang mga kaibigan ko.”
