The internet went wild when Maris Racal finally confirmed that she and Rico Blanco are officially dating following months of speculations.
Now, the couple are bombarded with questions about their relationship, including speculations of them taking it to the next level. The 23-year-old actress then immediately shut down these rumors during a virtual press conference.
“I guess for a 23-year-old lady, madami pa akong hinahanap sa buhay ko," she admitted.
"At 23 madami pa akong roles na gusto matupad, and of course lagi ko namang hinahanap 'yung satisfaction. Though na-a-achieve ko naman siya, hindi naman tayo nagiging satisfied na parang magse-settle down ka na. We’re always aiming to be better and be greater," she said.
Being a go-getter, Maris still has a long list of things she would want to achieve as an actress, as a singer, and as a person.
"I want to work with a lot of actresses pa I look up to. Sa music naman I want to release more songs na mas makaka-tap ng madaming tao. As a person, I think masasabi ko talaga na I’m not perfect and ang dami ko pang aspect na kailangan ibago sa sarili ko and I’m slowly learning," she revealed.
At this point of their relationship, Maris is just happy that she and Rico have a "natural" chemistry both as a couple and as professionals since they have already collaborated for "Abot Langit" in 2019 and "Not For Me" in 2020.
“I think it just comes naturally. Walang study, walang perfect formula for it. Pero if you get each other then automatic na 'yung connection, 'yung attraction or whatever you call that," she said.
"Minsan kasi may songwriter ka na mami-meet na hindi mo kapareha ng ways, hindi mo kapareha ng technique. Nagkataon lang medyo pareho kaming dalawa that’s why ang bilis namin nakuha 'yung writing ng isa’t isa," she added.
Catch Maris in the two-part Father's Day Special of "Maalaala Mo Kaya" alongside Cris Villanueva this Saturday, June 12, on A2Z, Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and TFC.
