A few Sundays back, actor Alfred Vargas insisted that he and longtime girlfriend LJ Reyes were fine and that he was very happy with their relationship.
Yesterday, November 11, Alfred was back in Showbiz Central, this time candidly revealing that he and LJ are indeed going through a tough time because of time issues brought about by their conflicting work schedules.
"We're just giving each other space. Kasi ngayon, siguro ang pinakamagandang gagawin namin is talagang i-admit namin kung ano ang priorities namin sa buhay. Tutal mga bata pa naman kami, lalo na siya," said Alfred to guest co-host Rustom Padilla.
Alfred and LJ have been quite busy of late because of their respective commitments. Alfred juggles his time between acting and his business ventures while LJ divides her time between studies and her showbiz career.
Asked if they see each other often, Alfred candidly confessed, "Lately hindi masyado dahil sa schedules naming dalawa."
For now, the hunky actor reiterated that he wants to devote more time to think about his future. "Lumalaki na tayo. I want to be prepared pagdating sa future. I really want to be stable and feeling ko, bawat lalaki naman, ‘yon yung hangad."
Though the sexy actor never directly admitted it, he seemed to hint that they're currently in a cool-off stage.
"Mahirap sabihin na on the rocks nga kami," he said, "kasi open yung communication lines. Our relationship is a very understanding relationship."
He added, "Open pa rin sa communication lines. We still talk a lot pero wala munang expectations."
Despite the imaginable tension, Alfred said that he and LJ seldom argue—something that he owes to familiarity and perhaps maturity.
"Hindi na kami nag-aaway," he proudly said. "We are way past that na kasi we know each other too well para pumunta doon sa bahagi na nag-aaway kaming dalawa."
