Sam Milby an 'observant' suitor, says Jessy
MANILA, Philippines – Actress Jessy Mendiola, heartthrob Sam Milby’s new object of affection, said that her suitor knows just what to do to get her attention.
“He’s very consistent and attentive. He’s observant,” she told ABS-CBN’s Showbiz Inside Report. “Kumbaga, if you need something or anything, he knows.”
Milby said in an interview with "The Buzz" last week that he is courting Mendiola. “Nililigawan ko si Jessy. She’s aware. I did let her know my intentions, yes. I like her, she’s beautiful. I like her simplicity. Hindi siya maarte,” he said.
While Mendiola said that she was surprised that Milby said on TV that he is courting her, she thought his admission was “a nice thing to do.”
“Any girl would be flattered, and I think it’s a nice thing to do, na he said it on TV,” she said. “Actually hindi ko alam na magsasalita siya.”
She said that it is Milby’s choice if he wants to tell people or television viewers that he trying to win her affection. “Wala rin naman masama.”
Mendiola had earlier said that she does not see anything wrong with Milby trying to get to know her better.
"Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi. Pero we go out lang naman and hang. Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko.”
"He’s a very sweet and nice guy so I don’t want to close any doors naman and why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya,” she said.
However, now that Milby had publicly declared his intention to try to win her heart, Mendiola said that it is too early to tell if he will succeed.
“Alam na naman ng lahat ng tao na I’m not ready for a relationship,” she said.
Mendiola had just ended an "almost there" relationship with Matteo Guidicelli earlier this year. Before being linked with the actor, however, Mendiola was linked with actor JM de Guzman.
