Sam Milby also shares how they actually got to know each other.
After six years of not being in a relationship, Sam Milby has finally found someone new in the person of TV host Mari Jasmine.
“I think when you’re in a relationship for such a long time, it’s hard kapag nag-break kayo kasi sobrang sanay kayo sa isa’t isa. I’m glad that I stayed single for so long para makilala ko ulit ang sarili ko, to appreciate myself as a person,” he told ABS-CBN News.
His last relationship was with Anne Curtis which was very public since both of them are from showbiz. This time, Sam opted to keep his relationship private.
“It’s obvious naman na lumalabas kami. We are seen in public places all the time. It’s an open thing. Bakit kailangang i-deny? I’ve actually wanted to share it before. I wanted to tell you guys about it but mas private person siya and I really respect that about her,” he shared.
Sam also shared that he was the one who first approached Mari by following her on Twitter. Mari isn’t much aware with “showbiz life” in the Philippines. In fact, when Sam followed her, she didn’t know that he was a celebrity.
However, he is still thankful because Mari understands his job.
“There will always be yung mga away. There’s no perfect relationship. It’s just knowing how to fight for the relationship and for the love, just being mature.”
In the end, he said when he fell in love with her, “It just felt right. We have a lot in common also. It’s pretty much as simple as that. It just felt right.”
