Derek Ramsay Confessed deeply in love with Christine Reyes
Derek Ramsay confessed that he must have been “blindly in love” with Cristine Reyes even before they formally became a couple a several weeks ago.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Ramsay said everything that occurred between them were absolutely surprising as they were just really acquaintances.
“I must have been [in love with her all this time]. I’m being completely honest when I looked at Cristine as my friend, but analyzing this whole thing, it’s kind of hard not to entertain the fact that I must have been blindly in love with her,” he said.
“I love her dearly as a friend but there must have been something more. The great thing about our relationship is we didn’t do the whole ‘best foot forward’ because may intentions ka para ligawan kasi hindi ko naman siya niligawan. Same thing with her, so pinakita lang talaga naming kung sino lang talaga kami,” he explained.
Ramsay said he did not really eat his words when he said that he will not dateanother lady from showbiz because he knows Reyes as a real person.
“It’s so awkward. I ate my words. I’ve said many times na I will never date Cristine and more so I would never date anyone in showbiz. But for me, AA (Reyes's nickname) is not showbiz because she’s one of my friends. She’s a real friend, one of the boys,” he said.
Asked how different their connection is now, Ramsay said: “We are just as crazy as we were then now. I’m really enjoying it, I’m really happy. She’s the person I run to when I have problems. She knows all the stuff about me.”
Meanwhile, Ramsay said it created him satisfied when he discovered that Reyes’ former partner, acting professional Rayver Cruz, is absolutely okay with their connection.
“Rayver is my friend. We saw each other on the court. I was really happy when somebody mentioned that to me earlier today. Rayver has been to my house many times even when they were together,” he said.
Ramsay said Cruz even went up to him to tremble his side after their the game of Hero Foundation.
“I think it was really awesome for Rayver to come up and shake my hand. I didn’t really see that I needed to explain or talk to Rayver,” he said.
Despite this, Ramsay said he gets disappointed when people tag him as the purpose why Cruz and Reyes split up.
“No, that’s not true, Rayver knows that. We all know that. It’s been a while since the breakup. I’ve been a friend to Rayver, more like an older brother,” he said.
Reyes and Ramsay officially became a couple last August 28.
