Kim Chiu says ready for new relationship
MANILA (UPDATED) -- Kim Chiu said she is ready to enter a new relationship, but added she is "taking her time" when it comes to getting to know a potential partner.
"Darating din tayo diyan. Hindi naman kailangan sapilitan, kusa niyo pong malalaman kung sinuman po ang nagpapatibok ng puso ko. Hindi ko naman itatago, at tsaka na sa tamang edad na ako," she said shortly after a press conference held Tuesday night for her month-long starring stint in the weekend fantasy anthology "Wansapanataym."
Admitting she misses having a boyfriend, the actress nonetheless added, "It takes time know someone para tumanggal 'yung relationship. Kasi pag mabilisan, gano'n din, mabilisan, para ka lang nagpalit ng damit. 'Ay, ayoko na dito,' gano'n."
Chiu's last relationship was with actor Gerald Anderson. They broke up in 2010.
On the subject of her close relationship with on-screen leading man Xian Lim, who has openly expressed admiration for her, Chiu merely surmised they must be "exclusively" dating as they are not seeing other people for now.
"Thank you kasi nandiyan po siya para sa akin. Pero wala naman pong bakuran effect. Wala naman po, wala naman pong gano'n siguro," the actress said, when asked if she thinks her close ties with Lim may be discouraging to other potential suitors.
Noting the "fairy godmother" story of her "Wansapanataym" mini-series, Chiu was also asked if she has any wish when it comes to love.
She responded: "Huwag mo na i-wish, kasi minsan 'yung wish mo mali eh. Hayaan mo na 'yung destiny 'yung magsabi about love."
