MANILA, Philippines -- After a failed relationship, singer-actor Markki Stroem admitted he finds it difficult to trust people.

In an interview on "KrisTV" on Wednesday, Stroem had a hard time confirming if he's now in an exclusive relationship.

"For now," Stroem told "KrisTV" host Kris Aquino, who asked the "Camp Rock" actor if he is exclusively dating.

"Kasi aalis na siya. I'm scared. Kasi I also want her to experience her college life sa States, 'yun 'yon," Stroem said.

Stroem admitted that his "trust issues" stemmed from a traumatic experience.

"It's not really an exclusive relationship. Kasi I have a traumatizing experience before when I had long-distance affair. So like that's what I'm scared about," he said.

 "I know it's bad na hindi ako trusting but I should be more trusting, which goes to show na since she's leaving in January, maybe we should talk about it," Stroem added.
Stroem is now promoting his album titled "Thousands of Pieces."
