MANILA – Coleen Garcia denied that Billy Crawford is already her boyfriend but she was quick to add that what they have is "special."
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Garcia said she is not fond of putting labels on any relationship.
"May something, may special something. Not girlfriend and boyfriend but I guess the way we see each other. It's kind of like that already. We see each other in a special way but no labels. Siguro yun yung parang awkward stage in between," she said.
Asked what she thinks is holding them back to be officially together, Garcia simply quipped, "Ako lang, I think I'm waiting for the right time. I'm just very guarded."
"I learned a lot kasi from things in the past. I'm continuing to learn. I just want to take things slowly. There were a lot of things that I rushed in the past. And I'm just enjoying every stage of this," she added.
As she waits for the "right time," Garcia said she is not worried that Crawford might get impatient.
"He's patient. He's actually one of the most patient people I know and I always tell him that," she said.
Garcia said she cannot say for now when they will finally decide to be a couple.
"Wala naman sa number of months. I guess it's just kapag nararamdaman mo na," she said.
Last January, Crawford admitted that he is courting Garcia but was quick to add that she was not the third party that led to his split with singer Nikki Gil.
