Kim Chiu says she has Xian Lim to thank for her renewed trust in men.
Roughly two months after admitting that she and onscreen partner Xian Lim are already exclusively dating, primetime princess Kim Chiu has been a little more forthcoming in answering questions about him.
Apparently, according to Kim, apart from being her closest male friend to date, her Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo co-star has been instrumental in slowly putting back her trust in men. During the recently-concluded press conference for Wansapanataym Presents My Fairy Kasambahay, Kim revealed that “Isa siya sa mga taong tumulong sa akin.”
But apart from the good news that came with their pairing are several rumors about the actor; among them was his purported “pambabakod” of the first Pinoy Big Brother Teens winner. “Hindi naman po. Wala naman pong bakuran effect,” she clarified to the press.
Their admission happened on national TV, on the July 30 episode of Kris TV to be specific. During the episode, the two initially showed hesitation in putting a label on their relationship, but with enough prodding from the show’s host, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, they eventually replied in the affirmative that they were exclusively dating.
Nevertheless, the 23-year-old actress said she is in no haste to make things official between them despite the public and their KimXi fans’ ardent support for their real and reel life romance. “Siguro [kailangan ng] time para alam mong sincere yung tao,” she said, adding that, “… it takes time to know one, para mas tumagal yung relationship. Kasi pag mabilisan ganon mabilisan, para ka lang nagpalit ng damit.”
But the revelation may come sooner than what people have expected, as Kim noted that she is ready to fall in love and that she already misses having a boyfriend. “Darating din tayo dyan, hindi naman kailangan sapilitan. Kusa niyo po yung malalaman kung sino man po yung nagpapatibok ng puso ko?” she said with a smile.
Kim’s last relationship was with Bukas Nalang Kita Mamahalin actor Gerald Anderson.
Since her role on My Fairy Kasambahay is that of a househelp with a fairy godmother, the young actress was asked in parting if she has ever met someone whom she thinks was her prince charming. “Sa akin hindi mo matatawag yun na prince charming mo talaga unless kung nakasama mo na at nandyan na siya sayo habang buhay. Siguro nandun na yung prince charming po pag kinasal ka na dun mo lang masasabi na ‘ay siya pala yung prince charming ko!’” she supplied.
