Maja Salvador says no PDA with boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli


011912-mat-main.jpgAlthough Maja Salvador has become more open about her relationship with Matteo Guidicelli, she maintained that the one thing she still can’t do is to be seen going out on a date with Matteo. “Actually, mas nahihiya ako lumabas. Kasi parang lahat iisipin, ‘Ay sila na talaga,’ kaya parang nahihiya ako. Hindi ko pa rin kayang makipag-holding hands, ewan ko, hindi lang siguro ako sanay. Bakit, nung hindi pa ba ako umaamin na kami na, PDA (public display of affection) ba ako? Hindi naman,” said Maja during the press con of Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin last January 17.

Maja also denied doing public display of affection with Matteo on the set of their movie My Cactus Heart. “Siyempre kami-kami lang yun. Hindi naman kami PDA. Hindi naman porket sinabing mag-boyfriend-girlfriend kami, todo PDA kami kung saan man kami magpunta. Siyempre kailangan din namin irespeto yung mga taong nasa paligid namin.” She added that there are ways for her to express her feelings without being vulgar about it. “Hindi lang naman sa kiss yun or sa hug naipapakita. Pwede rin sa pagbibigay ng food food, yung simpleng tanong lang na, ‘Kumain ka na ba?’ Marami naman.

As a matter of fact, Maja described her relationship with Matteo as “puppy love” since they just enjoy each other’s company without going on out of the country trips like what most celebrity couples do. “Sa relationship kasi namin ngayon parang puppy love lang kasi text mate lang kami, call mate… kasi never pa kami nag-date, as in grupo [kaming lumalabas]. Never pa kaming nag-out of the country, bihira lang din kami magkita. Kung magkikita man kami 10 minutes lang, hi lang, magda-drop by siya sa taping, ganon lang.

But what she likes about Matteo is that he extends his thoughtfulness towards her family. “Ako, ice cream lang ang regalo niya sa akin, mochi balls. Pero bongga naman ang gift niya sa mga taong nakapaligid sa akin, sa family ko. Kaya huwag ka nang aarte, at least, ang gift niya ay bonggang bonggang pagmamahal. Yun na lang yun. Walang sasaya pa kung grabe yung pagmamahal na ibibigay ng boyfriend mo sa pamilya mo. Close siya sa family ko. In fairness, may effort naman kasi nung nasa ibang bansa ako, tapos birthday ng mommy ko, gumawa siya ng paraan para ma-i-celebrate yung birthday ng mommy ko.”

At this point, Maja confidently stated that Matteo no longer has jealousy issues towards her leading men. Because if it would still be an issue between them, the pretty actress stressed that she’d rather have nothing to do with him anymore. “Kailangan talaga may trust and respect. Kasi kung talagang mahal ka niya at pinagkakatiwalaan ka niya, kahit anong gawin mong eksena, o kahit anong gawin mong proyekto, dapat nandiyan lang siya para suportahan ka niya at para iparamdam na, 'Kahit anong gawin mo, mahal kita.' Tsaka misunderstanding lang yun dati, wala na yun. At the end of the day, alam naman namin na sa akin siya, sa kanya ako.”
