MANILA, Philippines – For the second time, actress Cristine Reyes has reiterated that there is nothing romantic going on between her and actor Derek Ramsay.
In an interview with entertainment website Pep.ph, Reyes said she does not get alarmed that people see them together going out because they are really close friends.
“Hindi naman namin dini-deny na lumalabas kami. We really go out, hang-out, dinner, merienda, lunch. Minsan nagpasama sa akin ‘yan one time mag-golf. Minsan naman ako, pinupuntahan niya sa family gathering ko, like birthday ng sister-in-law ko,” she said.
Despite this, the actress said her relationship with Ramsay cannot be called “dating.”
“Pareho naman kaming aminado na we’re friends eh. We like hanging out together, but it’s not really a date, because it’s not that romantic eh. Nag-aasaran kami kapag magkasama kami. We’re friends,” she said.
Reyes said Ramsay also knows that she has no intentions of getting into another relationship after her breakup with actor Rayver Cruz.
“Yes, alam naman ni Derek 'yun. Gusto ko munang maging single. And I’m very sure wala siyang intensyon. Kasi alam ko naman 'yung mga ginagawa nung lalaking 'yun. Minsan nagpapatulong pa 'yun sa akin, ilakad ko raw sa babaeng 'yun… ayaw kong pangalanan, baka magalit sa akin. We’re friends lang talaga. Wala kaming sweet moments nun, sapakin ko 'yun eh. Wala talaga,” she insisted.
Meanwhile, Reyes denied that she and Cruz are trying to rekindle their romance.
“I’m really good friends with Ray. Pagkakaalam ko nagdesisyon kami para maghiwalay, hindi para magbalikan ulit. Ano ‘to lokohan? Naglokokohan ba tayo dito?” she said with a good laugh.
Even after the breakup, Reyes said she and Cruz have decided to remain friends.
“Okay naman kami eh ‘di ba? Wala namang third party sa amin. And naghiwalay kami, alam naman namin pareho na para sa career namin. Para mag-focus sa life namin. Kasi bata pa kami para masyadong mag-focus sa relasyon,” she said.
Having said that, Reyes said she does not mind spending the Valentine’s Day without a special someone.
“I am happy na single ako at hindi ko naman hinahanap ang kasiyahan ko sa ibang tao. Kaya masasabi ko na kuntento ako ngayon,” she said.
