In a live interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Cuenca said he loves Poe but this doesn’t mean that they are already in a relationship.

“Yes, I am. Pero you have to ask her din kasi baka naman iba ang nararamdaman niya. I am but we don’t have a relationship. I have feelings for her, I love her pero it’s not a relationship yet,” he said.

Asked what he thinks is hindering them to enter a relationship, Cuenca said: “We’re both very busy and priority talaga naman namin trabaho.”

According to Cuenca, he is very happy that both of them are doing well in their careers, saying it is also their decision to focus on their careers first.

“I’m really proud our her and I am thankful for all the blessings that I have now. I was able to do ‘Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo’ and ‘Kahit Puso’y Masugatan’ so I want to focus lang,” he said.

In his past interviews, Cuenca revealed that he wants his next girlfriend to be his life-long partner.

Prodded if Poe has the qualities of the ideal wife that he is looking for, the actor said: “She’s an amazing person and a very very amazing woman.”

Cuenca and Poe have been consistently romantically linked after they were paired in a movie last year.

Cuenca’s last relationship was with actress Melissa Ricks, while Poe’s last boyfriend was former Ilocos Sur Rep. Ronald Singson.
