Maja Salvador, 28, admitted that she is currently dating a non-showbiz guy whom she first met when she was still in high school.
The Wildflower star did not name the guy and only gave a few details about his identity.
She hinted, “Kabarkada ko naman yun—high school friend, high school classmate. Non-showbiz."
Maja has kept her love life tightly under wraps these days, to a point where netizens haven’t sighted her with her mystery guy—yet.
She explained, “Lumalabas kami, pero siguro kasi sanay na yung tao na nandun siya sa group ko kasi magkaibigan na kami for fifteen years.”
All she’s willing to divulge now is that she finds it better to be dating a non-showbiz guy this time around.
She pointed out, “Okey kasi iba yung foundation. Yung friendship buung-buo.
“Kung anong nangyayari sa mundo niya, nangyayari sa mundo ko. Maraming napag-uusapan.
“Fifteen years na magkaibigan, so kabisado namin ang isa’t isa.”
According to Maja, the guy has no problems adjusting to her celebrity status.
Looking at her Star Magic handler, Maja asked, “Nahirapan ba siya? Low-key lang siya, di ba?”
Then addressing the reporters, Maja reiterated, “Busy lang din siya. Magkaibigan kami kaya sanay na yun.”
Maja’s last high-profile relationship was with Gerald Anderson.
They’ve been together for two years and parted ways in April 2015.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Maja during her solo presscon held at Dong Juan Restaurant in Quezon City yesterday, January 13.
TIME MANAGEMENT. Now that her hit afternoon series Wildflower will soon draw to a close, Maja is gearing up for her concert series titled Maja On Stage, with a kick-off run in Cebu on February 4.
How does she balance her time for career and love?
Smiling, Maja replied, "Kung masugid naman yung love life mo, wala naming problema dun, kasi meron at merong time.
"Pag bata ka kasi, hindi mo talaga alam ibalanse ang lahat, e.
"Or tayo, nagpo-focus kasi talaga tayo dun sa yung tingin natin dito tayo magiging successful.
"Pero siguro pag naaral niyo na yun, kung saan ka masaya, kung saan ka magiging successful.
"Hindi lang kasi dapat yun ang iniisip natin, ang pagiging successful.
"Kung saan tayo magiging happy, hindi lang yung sarili mo; yung meron ka ring peace of mind, yung puso mo masaya.
"Pag nagamay mo na yun lahat, magiging maganda yung flow ng lahat."
