Charice: This is a mature relationship-A A +A
Thursday, October 31, 2013
UNLIKE what other people think, Charice said her relationship with girlfriend Alyssa Quijano is a mature one.
In a recent interview with the international singing sensation, the 21-year-old said she wouldn't enter a relationship and at the same time admit to the public that she's gay if she's not sure of the person.
"Kilala na niya ako, kilala ko na siya dahil best friends kami. Sa kaniya ako nagkaroon ng lakas ng loob na maging open and to let everyone know about us. Kasi kung ganoon kalakas 'yung love ko sa iba, I would have done it before. Hindi naman ako papasok sa relationship nang basta-basta dahil ang dami ko ng na-experience," Charice said.
Charice revealed she had her first relationship at the age of 13. She kept all of them private even though speculations on her gender preference are constantly circulating in show business.
The singer said she had the strength to finally come out in the open because Alyssa is behind her and the relationship is for keeps.
When asked if marriage is already in the picture, the singer shared they talk about it but it's not happening anytime soon.
What Charice is certain is that she's ready to build a life with Alyssa.
"The way people see us, parang nagkukulitan lang kami, parang laru-laro lang, pero they don't see how we talk, how we fight about simple things. Hindi nila alam 'yung plano ko sa kaniya, plano niya sa akin, 'yung plano namin sa buong buhay namin."
Mean time, Charice said she hasn't spoken yet to her mother Racquel.
Although they live apart, the singer still gets updates from close friends and some relatives on how her mom and brother Carl are doing right now.
Charice said she is still her mother's daughter and the love, care and understanding will remain forever.
"Alam ko na hindi pa time. I know my mom and hindi naman mawawala 'yung role ko as a daughter na I'm still here. Kaya din medyo kalma na din kasi alam namin na andiyan kami sa isa't isa. Alam sa sarili namin na hindi pa kami ready," she said.
The singer also said, "I just don't want to hear another rejection dahil ang sakit kasi. Once is enough and not now."
Charice added that they all live in Cabuyao, Laguna and it's only a matter of time before they bump into each other.
Now that Christmas is fast approaching, the singer said she also wants to spend it with her immediate family. But said she wouldn't push things when the wound is still raw.
"I miss her. I miss my brother. Kahit nasaan naman ako, hindi pwede na hindi ko siya ma-mention. Hindi pwede na hindi siya kasama sa istorya, hindi pwedeng wala siya. I never forget. Coming and having a relationship with Alyssa, that doesn't mean I forgot them, na wala na and tapos na," she ended. (Sunnex)
