Here's why Xian Lim courted Kim Chiu for more than a year

Kim Chiu and Xian Lim have been together for nine years now, but we never actually knew how it all started for them.

And today, we were treated to more details about their relationship, including the humble beginnings of their love team and how they officially became together.

In the latest vlog of Xian on Thursday, November 4, the couple did an "Ask KimXi" video where they answered ten questions from their loyal fans. Among these was how the love team KimXi was formed, which Xian revealed began during their "My Binondo Girl" days.

Back then, Kim had three leading men, but it was only with Xian where Kim felt the "spark."

"I guess may nakita silang spark," Xian recalled. "Yes… Hindi nila alam, totoong spark na [pala meron sa'min]. Spark na sa totoong buhay. Ikaw talaga. Mga tingin-tingin mo kasi sa 'kin," he said while teasing Kim.

"Doon na nag-start and 'yon, the rest is history," the actress added.



Relationship-wise, Kim revealed that it took more than a year of courtship before she actually gave Xian her sweet yes.

On why it took her long, Kim explained, "Kasi siyempre, para sure. Ayoko namang makipaglaro sa feelings ko, 'di ba?"

Agreeing with Kim, he related, "Tip lang, guys. Ang relationship is like building a house. Dapat strong 'yung foundation. Kung 'di strong ang foundation ninyo, laro-laro lang naman 'yan sa umpisa, mabilis din 'yang mabubuwag. To make sure the foundation is great before you jump into anything."

"The foundation should be strong. Kung biglaan niyo lang sinagot yung tao, kaunting yanig lang, wala na."

Apart from the traditional panliligaw, the two also had a very traditional way of being officially together, according to Xian. "I remember… very traditional tayo. Tinanong talaga kita, 'Kim, will you be my girlfriend?' Either sa car or doon sa may pool area."," he recalled.

"Hindi, hindi sa may pool. Sa kotse. Is it?" Kim said to which Xian replied, "Yeah."
