Rumors about Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza being together as a couple started in the last quarter of 2018 when they both starred in a film included as an entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival. That time, their relationship was still just a mere speculation fueled by photos of them secretly shot by eagle-eyed fans during their alleged dates. But despite not confirming anything, the two have started receiving a massive amount of hate from fans.
Amidst the flood of bashing they receive, Arjo and Maine confirmed that they are indeed dating. Still, considering the internet’s initial shock, it is no surprise that the two have kept things low key. Aside from a few photos, some of which were sneakily taken by onlookers, there is not much out there about the couple. Even their own social media accounts are considerably quiet. Except for one Instagram post from Arjo when he greeted his “main” on her birthday by sharing an adorable picture of theirs.
They have also been selective with their words during interviews, until recently on Magandang Buhay. Arjo indulged the momshies on some details about his current love life.
“It’s so easy to say ‘I love you’, but it’s different when you show it,” he expressed. For this reason, he believes that “love” is just a word and would rather prove his feelings by spending quality time. In fact, he admitted to being clingy towards Maine. “I love her company so much,” he explained.
Arjo then talked about being old school when it comes to courting. He does feel nervous practically all the time, but he trusts that it is only normal, especially when you are facing the family of someone you like. He also stressed that courting someone is one of the things that makes any relationship fun, “Hindi ka pwede tumigil sa pagliligaw.”
With that being said, fans can trust that the two are as happy as can be, even if we do not see them post often about it.
