Talking marriage, to Rafael Rosell, is labeling a relationship that is working on its own, "It's putting a limitation as what it should be, like explaining love, you can't explain love."


Sigurado si Rafael Rosell na kahit nasa Shanghai, China, ang kanyang girlfriend na si Olivia Medina ay hindi ito magiging dahilan para mabuwag ang kanilang mahigit isang taon nang relasyon.

Sa unang buwan ng taong ito, nabalitang naghiwalay na sila, pero pinabulaanan ito ng Kapuso actor.

Nang makausap ng PEP. ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Rafael sa pocket presscon para sa kanya bilang pinakabagong celebrity endorser ng shirt line na Obra Ni Juan, igiit niyang "Absence will make his heart grow fonder."

Aniya, "Sobrang cool ang lovelife ko.

"Right now, nasa Shanghai siya [Olivia], nagmu-model.

"Kaya puro Skype muna at Facetime, mga ganun.

"It's a good learning process. As much as we want to be together, we also learn to be apart.

"Kasi it's a perfect balance, e. Marami kaming natututunan sa prosesong ito, so okay naman."

Dagdag pa ni Rafael, "Yung being forgetful [sa relasyon], or you grow fonder, it's a choice, e.

"If you choose love every day, you're going to that direction.

"So, always choose love, always choose kindness."


ADJUSTING. Sa parte ni Rafael, wala ring problema kung sakaling malayo ang kanyang girlfriend dahil tanggap naman niyang parte ito ng trabaho nito.

Sabi ng aktor, "I think, yung mga ugali naman at lifestyles namin, kailangang i-adjust, e.

"Itong adustment process, minsan nagkaka-conflict kasi nare-restrict ang kinasanayan mo dati.

"Pero once you finally agree, you became a part of the process that two people can be put together, mold each other.

"Well, that's my goal.

"Inaamin ko na I'm going to that direction, pero it's not naman easy, it's something I have to choose now."


GETTING ALONG. Aminado ang Kapuso actor na tumatagal ang relasyon nila ng Fil-Canadian model dahil sa maraming bagay na kanilang pinagkakasunduan.

Saad ng 32-year-old actor-model, "Nasasakyan niya ang ugali ko.

"Very weird kasi ang personality ko... not in the negative way.

"It's not just the same as others, iba kasi ang pag-iisip ko.

"I think, lahat naman tayo ay iba ang pag-iisip.

"It's just siya, tinatanggap niya ang pagkatao at kung paano ako mag-isip.

"Natitiis niya ang mga ugali kong ups and downs.

"So, para sa akin, it's love returned, kaya yun din ang sinusubukan ko para sa kanya."


ACCEPTING. Hindi nga raw madali na sakyan ni Olivia ang anumang kaibahan niya sa ibang lalaki.

Aniya, "Hindi madali, pero it's a learning process.

"Yun ang gusto ko sa kanya, dahil tanggap niya who I am, kung ano ang tingin sa akin ng ibang tao.

"She loves me just the way I am. Siyempre, ganun din ako sa kanya.

"I guess, malaking tulong yung upbringing niya na hindi medyo... mas open ang mind, a bit liberal."

Bulung-bulungan na mayroon daw litratong naglalabasan na may kasama siyang ibang babaeng modelo. Paano niya ito ipapaliwanag sa kanyang kasintahan?

Napapangiting sabi ni Rafael, "Marami akong pictures na may kasamang girls.

"I have friends na babae. I have friends na lalaki. I have friends na tomboy and gays.

"So, it doesn't matter kung sino ang kasama ko sa picture, hindi ko na kailangang magbiyahe nang malayo to explain, 'di ba?

"Isa rin siguro sa mga dahilan kung bakit kami pa rin dahil pagdating sa jealousy, pagdating sa mga taong nasa paligid, hindi yun ang isyu, e.

"Actually, ang isyu namin ay kung paano namin aayusin ang maliliit na tampuhan, yun lang."


LIMITING. Dahil sa sobrang magka-swak ang kanilang personalidad, si Olivia na ba ang babaeng pakakasalan niya?

Tugon ni Rafael, "Well, I don't want to say na she should be 'the one.'

"Ang connotation nowadays, the whole marriage thing, the expectations.

"Parang nilalagyan mo ng limit ang anumang posibilidad sa isang relationship.

"When you say, 'black is black,' it's gonna be black.

"But when you say that black is a combination or absence of all colors, then black is more than just a color.

"So, when you correlate it with marriage, siya na ba o she's the one? Para bang may limistasyon na kung ano puwede siyang maging.

"Paano na kung hindi ganun o siya na pala ang reyna ko talaga?

"Hindi girlfriend ang tingin ko sa kanya, kundi isang goddess. It's much bigger than just a girlfriend.

"Parang ang labeling, it's putting a limitation as what it should be, like explaining love, you can't explain love."
