Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber open up about why going into a relationship is not their priority at the moment.
With several fans speculating about the real status of their relationship, Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber were asked to clear up things between them once and for all during the press conference for Dreamscape's latest offering Hiwaga ng Kambat.
“Yung totoo ha, this world is so quick. I mean this from the bottom of my heart, this world is so crazy. I don’t mean living in the Philippines, in this industry. And if there’s one thing I learned sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya, it’s to take things slow. So discover lang as you go along. Don’t rush into things. Don’t dive in kasi you might not get out. So the best things in the world, the best things you should love are things that you gain slowly. So ‘yung totoo po, ayokong isipin. I don’t want to think about it too much kasi andaming, ‘You guys are a love team, get together na. Nakakakilig ‘yun, dun galing ang pera,’” Barber said.
Asked if he has had a girlfriend in the past, he answered: “Puppy love po nung thirteen years old ako. Pero kahit holding hands po, wala pa. ‘Yun lang po.”
When asked about her feelings for Edward, whom she fondly calls ‘Dodong,’ Maymay answered: “Ang damdamin ko po para kay Dodong ay sobrang feeling thankful po ako na dumating siya sa buhay ko dahil siya po ‘yung lalaki na consistent po talaga ‘pag may gusto, siya sa isang babae. Kapag sinabi niya niya hihintayin kita, hihintayin [ka niya]. ‘Di ba po ‘pag may mga lalaki ‘hihintayin kita’ ‘pag three months, wala na. Psshh wala na po.”
She then revealed: “Pero feeling ko ang ganda ganda ko po dahil hanggang ngayon po nililigawan po ang mga family ko."
Adding that going into a relationship is not their priority at the moment, Maymay said: “At tsaka talagang mas mabuti po talaga ‘pag kilalanin niyo muna ang isa’t-isa. Hindi pa po talaga time. Kagaya po nung sinabi namin kanina, priority po namin ‘yung family namin, ‘yung pangarap namin kung ano meron sa amin ngayon na blessings. Dahil ‘yung totoong maging official na, darating po ‘yun sa tamang panahon kapag stable na ang lahat,” she stated.
Entrata also revealed that she already had a boyfriend in the past which she considered a mistake.
“Yes po. Once po. Bale ‘yung tatlo. ‘Yung dalawa puppy love. Kagaya nung sinabi ni Edward na puppy love. Pero ‘yung first talaga na boyfriend, naranasan ko na po. At dahil hindi ako nakinig sa Lola ko, nagkamali po ako,” she added.
Meanwhile, Edward Barber gave some advice to young love teams, particularly those who plan to delve into a romantic relationship in the future.
“We know naman from people we’ve seen inside this industry and outside in our own experience na mas maganda talaga ‘pag nagsisimula talaga bilang magkaibigan. As in that’s where you know people directly. You get straight to the core. Kasi ‘di ba ‘pag relationship, you don’t need to be experienced to know this kasi of course, you show your best self to them. Tapos unti-unti lumalabas ‘yung mga flaws, ‘yung mga perks. So start from friends and go from there. Advice ko ‘yun sa mga bagong love teams,” he stated.
