“Hindi po, trabaho muna.”
Ito ang nakangiting tugon ni Rafael Rosell sa tanong kung magpapakasal na siya sa non-showbiz girlfriend niyang si Valerie Gomez Chia.
Mahigit isang taon na raw ang relasyon nila, pero magkakilala na sila noon pang 2011.
Chinese-Spanish si Valerie, at ayon kay Rafael, wala siyang nakikitang conflict sa pamilya ng girlfriend.
Happy birthday to the craziest person I know!???? You never fail to amuse me. Many times I take life very, if not, too seriously. And you're there as a constant reminder that we should just smile and laugh through all the b*llsh*t. I forget sometimes, but you're there to slap me in the head and make me realize. Down the line to the very end, you will always be my poophead. ???? I love you to the end of the universe and back.! Happy Birthday Shapoopie!???????????????? @valeriegchia #CauseItsYourBirthday #Shapoopie #HasselKaKahitKelan #LoveLifeALLways ??????????????????????? #MidnightCrew #Surprise #Latepost
“I think noong dati, noong mga bata pa sila, mas strict ang traditional values nila.
“Pero ngayon, dahil may mga outside influences na…
“Dahil sa mga kapatid din na naka-experience ng Pinoy partner, medyo kumalma na ang pagka-traditional.”
Natatawang dagdag pa ni Rafael, “Ang goal na lang daw ay maghanap ng mabait at masipag.
“Tingin ko, pasok siguro ako dun.”
Okey nga raw ang relasyon ni Rafael sa pamilya ng girlfriend.
“Sobrang okey ako with the family, para siyang extension ng sarili kong family, ibang dimension ng family ko.
“Si Mommy, sobrang mahinhin at very wholesome ang kilos at choices sa buhay.
“Sa side naman niya, yung mommy niya, very outgoing, very spontaneous, lahat tutulungan agad.
“Yung tatay, businessman siya, inaalagaan ang mga anak.
“Ang tatay ko naman, geologist, inaalagaan ang mga anak.
“I see a parallel universe here and I’d like to stay in this world.”
"Love is the most powerful emotion a human being can experience. The strange thing is, that almost nobody knows what love is. Why is it so difficult to find love? That is easy to understand, if you know that the word “love” is not the same as one's feeling of love." I found this feeling on the waves, and I've found this feeling in you. One of the greatest things I've come to realize is that both you and the waves provide a feeling that needs to be surfed. You can't wait and let the current take you away from the sweet spot, nor can you waddle in the scary impact zone after a wipe out. One must work hard for the waves of a lifetime. One must be alert at all times for the "surfable" waves. One must know the sweet spots and take off points. And more than anything, one has to love surfing so much to the extent that one is willing to go surfing even during the stormiest days. Its is more than just standing up and balancing on a board, it's about reading the ocean, being alert of the surrounding, respecting nature, feeling the timing and dancing and playing with the gifts from the Universe. And much much more. I have come to realize, that no matter what happens, I will always choose to surf (You.)

So, is Valerie the one for him?
“No comment ulit ako diyan,” nakangiting sagot ni Rafael.
“I don’t get into a relationship naman unless I think she’s the one.
“So far, lahat ng na-face naming obstacle, we’ve overcome them at nag-improve after.
“Para sa akin, the number one thing talaga is trust and understanding, and I see an abundance of that sa kanya.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Rafael sa presscon ng bago niyang afternoon drama series sa GMA-7, ang Impostora, na ginanap noong Lunes, June 5.
