Sam Milby says he hasn't been out on a romantic date with Shaina Magdayao


022813-sam_main.jpgSam Milby admitted that he greeted Shaina Magdayao last Valentine’s Day, but didn’t ask her out on a date. After dropping by the Valentine concert of Kahit Konting Pagtingin co-star Angeline Quinto, the Rockoustic Heartthrob claimed that he went straight to John Prats’s birthday bash. “Siyempre birthday din ni John Prats. May birthday party siya sa bahay, so lahat kaming mga kaibigan nandun,” he said in a recent interview with Push.com.ph.

When asked if he brought Shaina with him to the party, Sam clarified that they didn’t see each other that night. “Wala siya dun. Siyempre, bakit naman... ‘Pag nag-date kami, parang magiging awkward naman yun. Binati ko siya. Pero hindi kami nagkita.”

Sam shared that he and Shaina are just friends, adding that romance is something that develops naturally. “Like I’ve said before, may mga times na nag-hang out kami with friends. Pero yung kaming dalawa nagkita, wala pa. Hindi naman sa walang urge [ako manligaw]. Wala talagang time, everyday taping, tapos Sunday may ASAP. Although hindi naman excuse yun. Ayokong gamiting excuse.”

As it is, Sam admitted that he is the torpe type when it comes to a girl he’s interested in. Nevertheless, he believes that there’s no need to rush things since he’s yet to officially court the pretty actress. “Oo, sige, aaminin ko, may pagka-torpe talaga ako. Ganon talaga. I’m mahiyain. And I think siguro dahil siyempre ina-announce ko naman na may gusto ako sa kanya. Siguro nararamdaman na niya.” 

Sam added that he’s more comfortable going out on group dates rather than setting a romantic date for two. “Ako kasi, less pressure [kung group date compared to] kayong dalawa lang and alam mo na wala pang connection, wala pang mapagusapan…  I’m more of a shy person. Ayoko ng naiilang na nandyan lang na tayong dalawa lang nagdi-dinner. Ayoko nung tahimik. Gusto ko enjoy lang with friends, there's no pressure, so mas maganda yung ganon for a start.”

As much as possible, Sam said he wants to avoid talking about Shaina in press cons because he doesn’t want people to misinterpret his intentions. “There’s nothing to hide. Ayoko lang lumaki yung issue na may something na kami ni Shaina, pero wala pa talaga. Ayoko lang mahusgahan ako ng ibang tao. Basta kung magde-develop, magde-develop. I was just very honest nung may nagtanong, and I admitted that I asked Pratty [kung okay lang sa kanya kung sakaling ligawan ko si Shaina].” 

All he knows for now is that he’s attracted to Shaina, but wants to take things slow. “If you ask me kung may paghanga ako sa kanya, I do [admire her]. I find her very charming and good-hearted siya.
