Arjo Atayde confirms he and Maine Mendoza are exclusively dating in an interview on Tuesday night, January 22.

Maine Mendoza and Arjo Atayde are currently making headlines as the latter officially confirmed that they are "exclusively dating."

On Tuesday night, January 22, the 28-year-old Kapamilya actor talked about his blooming relationship with the Eat Bulaga! host, in an interview after the press conference of his latest movie titled 'Tol, at Playhub in Quezon City. 

Their romance sparked in October 2018, while the two were working on their Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 entry Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.

Here are some reasons why we think Arjo and Maine would make a cute couple:

1. Arjo and Maine are both talented.

Maine's phenomenal success is no secret in the entertainment industry.

Her Dubsmash videos made her an Internet sensation and the half of popular love team AlDub. In less than three years, she has established herself as a bankable endorser and a well-rounded celebrity.

Arjo, for his part, has been earning praises for his acting performances. He has a number of acting awards under his belt including his Best Supporting Actor win at The PEP List Year 3 in 2016, for his performance in the hit prime-time series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.


2. The beach is their go-to travel getaway. 

Both Arjo and Maine enjoy traveling during their free time and their go-to destination is the beach.

In fact, they even went on a beach trip to Bali, Indonesia in November 2018.

Netizens also spotted Maine and Arjo at Spiral in Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila last December.

6. They love watching concerts.

Last November 8, Maine and Arjo were spotted watching the Karpos Live 3.3 concert which was held at Vertis Tent, Vertis North, in Quezon City.
