actress Nikki Gil
MANILA - Singer-actress Nikki Gil was all smiles as she confirmed that she is now dating someone months after her breakup with "It's Showtime" host Billy Crawford.
On Wednesday's episode of "Kris TV," host Kris Aquino said she saw Gil with a non-showbiz personality at a mall.
Gil said she first met his date during her college days through common friends.
"How did I meet him? Surprisingly, we have a lot of common friends and everyone assumed that kilala na namin ang isa't isa, pero hindi talaga. Pero Ateneo days pa lang," she said.
"He has work, an adult job. I mean, sobrang different from what we do," the singer added.
Gil went on to say that she is surprised at how she was able to date again following her breakup with Crawford last year.
"Alam mo, surprisingly, no. Sa akin, hindi," she said, when asked if she had a hard time trusting a man again following the split. "Kasi parang alam mo na it's not like that all the time, parang ito ay nagkataon lang. That love isn't supposed to be like that, hindi siya dapat masakit at hindi ka dapat iiyak."
Proving that time heals all wounds, Gil said that she now believes that she can think of Crawford and not feel bad anymore.
"Oo or I just don't think of him," she said.
