MANILA – After surprising the public with his admission that he is in a relationship, Enchong Dee has further opened up about his love life, sharing how he asked his non-showbiz girlfriend to say “yes.”

In an interview on “The Buzz” on Sunday, Dee told host Kris Aquino that he courted the girl for "a month or two."

“Yapos from texting, from going out, 'yun na,” he said

When prodded by the TV host further on how he specifically asked the girl to be his girlfriend, Dee narrated: “I was about to leave for Europe, she was about to leave for her work also. Ang pangit na aalis kayo ng Pilipinas na ano ba talaga tayo? ‘Yun na. From there, doon nag-take off, so let’s be happy together.”

Dee has been firm on his decision to keep his girlfriend's identity a secret, despite reports that he is just lying about his relationship and that his girlfriend is an "imaginary” one.

While Dee did not go into details about how they met, the actor previously shared that they got acquainted during an event he attended after filming scenes for "Once A Princess."

Explaining why he wont divulge his partner's identity, Dee said: "My girlfriend is not from showbiz. As much as possible, I protect her from all this."

The 25-year-old actor is currently promoting his latest movie “Once A Princess,” which he co-stars with Erich Gonzales and JC De Vera.

The movie is set to be released in theaters nationwide on August 6.
