Kapansin-pansing mas vocal si Martin Nievera sa kanyang love life ngayon, kumpara dati sa mga naging karelasyon niya matapos mauwi sa hiwalayan ang kasal nila ni Pops Fernandez.
Hindi raw sigurado si Martin kung kailan sila naging opisyal ng current girlfriend niya.
Ang malinaw daw sa kanya ay kung paano sila naging close, “We became very good friends, and we ended up being more than friends.”
Ngunit tikom si Martin sa identity ng special girl niya.
“I don’t like talking about her because I don’t want her to be involved in the business I’m in.
“Kung maghiwalay kami, e ‘di malalaman niyo pang lahat.
“’Tapos lahat ng mga good times namin, ipapalabas pa sa TV.
“Ever since, I’ve always kept my private life, private.
“But my Valentine’s is complete… any day, every day, it doesn’t have to be February 14.”
Nakausap si Martin ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) noong February 2, sa Solaire Hotel & Casino, sa presscon ng Valentine concert nila ni Lani Misalucha na Masquerade.
Magaganap ito sa nasabing hotel sa February 14 at 15.
GADGET GIRL. Sweet bang boyfriend si Martin?
“You have to ask the women I’ve been with,” natatawang saad niya. “Feeling ko, sweet ako.
“Kung hindi nila tanggap ang sweetness, well, bahala na sila.”
Siya ba yung tipong palabigay ng bulaklak?
“Well, this girl doesn’t like flowers. Why? Because flowers die.
“Napaka-simpleng babae. She’s a gadget girl.
“Get her something for her laptop, cellphone, happy na siya.
“It doesn’t have to be a Louis Vuitton. That’s why ako, champion itong babaeng ‘to.
“Sana she stays with me.”
UNDERSTANDING. Nagpapasalamat daw si Martin sa pagiging patient at understanding ng kanyang girlfriend, lalo’t abala siya ngayon sa Valentine concert nila ni Lani.
“I want it to be the musical soundtrack of the lovers watching, which means my love life should be put on hold.
“That’s the thing, my choice ever since, even before I met this girl, has always been work first.
“But the nice thing about my girlfriend is that she’s very patient, and she always finds everything that we do together as fun.”
Dagdag pa niya, ““What makes her very different from all the girls that I’ve loved, she loves what I do.
“She’s like a fan, she videos everything.”
NOT MARRYING. Non-showbiz ang girlfriend niya, ngunit siya na ba ang forever ni Martin?
“Every girl you’re in love with, you think she’s forever, ‘di ba?
“So I don’t use that word loosely anymore,” saad niya.
“Every day for me is forever, one forever at a time.”
Magpapakasal bang muli si Martin?
“That’s the one thing I don’t see. I mean, sa nangyari sa amin ni Pops before.
“My God, I’ve lasted longer with [other] girls, but I’ve never talked about marriage.”
Komento pa niya, “With these kids, they rush into marriage because it’s fashionable.
“Because it’s going to be a TV special, then three months, four months later, hiwalay na.
“I tell people, it’s not the wedding, it’s the marriage.
“If you can put much effort, much production cost, in your marriage than to your wedding, you’re gonna last a long, long time.”
