Erich Gonzales is not ready yet to be engaged with her non-showbiz boyfriend despite the proliferation of showbiz engagements this year.
“Siguro darating naman yon pag pareho na kaming ready. Huwag naman po nating i-pressure na porke’t uso siya ngayon, gagawin na. Meron naman tamang time at panahon for that,” answered the Kapamilya actress at the ribbon-cutting of Surplus shop at the lower ground level of SM North Edsa, October 3, Friday.

Erich has been with her boyfriend for more than three years now.
She continued that her boyfriend is aware that she is still at that stage when she still wants to accomplish a lot of things.
“Alam din naman po ni Boyfriend na hindi pa ako ready. Sa ngayon, marami pa akong gustong gawin sa buhay, and he’s just there para sumuporta at maghihintay siya. Supportive talaga siya ever since,” Erich said about her beau.
With the recent flamboyant celebrity proposals, Erich was asked if she prefers an equally grand proposal or just a simple one.
“It doesn’t really matter,” she replied. “Kung galing sa heart mo, kung sincere ka, then you’ll feel it. Then mapapa-oo ka.”

Last July on her Instagram account, Erich posted for the first time a photo of her with her boyfriend, together with her family and friends. However, Erich is careful not to divuldge the identity of her man.
Erich is now doing an upcoming teleserye, the Filipino version of the Koreanovela Two Wives, which also stars Kaye Abad and Jason Abalos.
The actress is tackling a more mature role and will be playing Janine, a woman who gets involved with a married man.
When asked if her boyfriend does not get jealous whenever she is required to have intimate scenes with an actor for a project, the actress said her boyfriend fully understands the nature of her work.
“Syempre nagma-mature tayo. Syempre alam naman na kasabay no’n yung mga projects na ginagawa ko, nagma-mature din. Hindi naman pa-cute ka lang o nag-stay ka lang sa isang image.”
She also said in a previous interview that her boyfriend has always been supportive of her when it comes to her job.
