Singer Mark Bautista, who is courting Sarah Geronimo, is unfazed by reports romantically linking the singer-actress to young actor Rayver Cruz.
"Kung sabihin niya na sila na. Ayaw ko na ding ipilit ang sarili ko if ayaw naman niya talaga. Kung iba naman ‘yong gusto niya… sa kanya na ‘yong desisyon. Mahirap namang pilitin pa si Sarah dahil baka ‘yon talaga ang gusto niya," Bautista said.
Bautista is very vocal about his special feelings and admiration for Geronimo. He said he is happy that the singer is now open when it comes to matters of the heart.
"I'm sure si Sarah naman ay gusto niyang ma-feel lang ‘yong ganoong feeling, ‘yong parang kinikilig," he said.
Bautista added that he still has a chance to prove himself to the pop star princess.
This coming March and April, Geronimo and Bautista will be working together again for a series of shows abroad.
"Happy ako na magkakasama kami ulit kasi hindi kami madalas magkita so at least may time ulit kami na mag-bonding," he said.
Bautista, a mainstay of All Star Afternoon Party (ASAP '09), is also busy promoting his upcoming concert with other heartthrobs - Christian Bautista, Erik Santos, Sam Milby and Piolo Pascual.
The concert, dubbed as "Pop Icons: The Concert," will be held in Dagupan on February 13 and Cebu on February 14. On February 21, the show will be held at the Araneta Coliseum.
The last leg of the concert will be in Bacolod on February 28.
