Maine Mendoza revealed how she is with Arjo in an episode of the talk show  Magandang Buhay while promoting her movie with Carlo Aquino, Isa Pa with Feelings.  Maine and Arjo have admitted earlier this year that they are exclusively dating and are happy with each other’s company.  The GMA-7 actress – who has a bubbly personality onscreen – revealed that she is a shy one in real life.  With that,  Arjo fits her personality because he is the opposite of her.

“”Kasi siya ‘yung nag-i-initiate lagi kapag groups, outspoken kasi siya. Ang kulit niyan kahit kanino kaya niyang makihalubilo which is hindi ko kayang gawin,” she said; adding that she gets to open more to the actor because he accepts her for who she is.

“Wala na rin akong hiya kasi siguro, tanggap niya ako kung ano ako. He accepts me for who I am and for who I am not. So ang laking bagay noon. Para gawin niya ‘yon parang mawawalan na rin ako ng hiya sa kanya para i-express kung ano ako.”

But when it comes to meeting his family Maine has this to say, “Kahit sa pamilya niya as in hindi ko pa rin kaya. Sinasabi ko sa kanya, ‘uy kung ipapakilala mo ako sa relatives mo isa-isa lang kasi hindi ko kaya kapag binigla mo ako. As in baka magkaroon sila ng impression sa akin.”

And indeed Mommy Silva has confirmed her shyness during their first meeting last May.  “She was respectful, pleasant na bata. Her first words were, ‘Hi po, Tita!’ She seemed shy when Arjo introduced her to me. Ang lamig-lamig ng kamay niya!”

Silva appreciated her humbleness cause she introduced herself as her real name Nicomaine Mendoza and not Maine Mendoza by which she’s famously known .

It was rumored in the past that Maine had a few admirers but they backed off after being bashed by the ALDUB Nation because they only want Alden for her.  Only Arjo got unaffected by bashers and is persistent enough to pursue her because for him, he said she is worth fighting for.

Well,  it would seem that love is truly in the air between the two.
