"I'm sorry, ano’ng pangalan mo?"
This may not be an impressive way to strike a conversation with a stranger you have just met for the first time, but this actually worked for the singer-actor CJ Navato and his non-showbiz flame Reign Maitim.
TWBA: How CJ Navato met his girlfriend
During his and loveteam partner Kristel Fulgar's recent guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda to promote their film “Class of 2018,” he clarified to the King of Talk that it was not a "pick up line" nor so-called "da moves" in order to gain the attention of a girl he likes. But it was just because he felt déjà vu upon the sight of her.
"I felt like I've met her before, pero it's [actually] the first time I've met her," he said.
That awkward first encounter might have ensued to scenarios that are more awkward as he kept on badgering her with random statements and questions, but the beautiful flight attendant trainee seemed to fall in the irresistible charm of the former Goin' Bulilit mainstay.
In their one year together, which they celebrated last September 25, it was apparent how happy they are in each other's arms and how head over heels they are towards one another, as seen on their sweet photos and amusing videos together uploaded on their respective Instagram accounts.
Besides, what makes their affair lovelier is on how they consider each other as their "forever buddy" and as source of happiness, which every man and/or woman should bear in mind as they chose to commit in a romantic relationship.
Despite having a loveteam, the 22-year-old artist revealed on that same interview that this has never an issue between him and Reign. In fact, she and Kristel have already met as he tags her along sometimes to their tapings and have remained amiable towards one another. However, Kristel wishes to have the chance to hang out with her in order to expose the shenanigans of CJ.
More anniversaries to come, CJ and Reign!
