MANILA, Philippines - Actress Jewel Mische on Thursday admitted that she is now dating a non-showbiz guy after her relationship with actor Jason Abalos ended.
"I'm single and I'm enjoying it a lot. There's this someone special pero he lives so far away. He's non-showbiz. I'm not in a relationship," Mische said.
"Alam mo nasa kilig factor pa lang. Hanggang ganoon pa lang kasi I love being single. I have all the time for myself," she said.
According to Mische, her relationship with Abalos didn't work out but she refused to provide details about it.
"It's been a long, long time since the last time we saw each other. It's something that I really don't want to talk about because ang agreement namin ni Jason ay huwag siyang pag-usapan. So out of respect for him I don't want to talk," Mische said.
She added: "What we had didn't really flourish."
But Mische said that she would be happy if Abalos finds someone new.
"Kung sino man ang girlfriend niya, mapalad na babae," said Mische, who is now busy with her upcoming series "Paraiso," with Matteo Guidicelli and Jessy Mendiola.
"Paraiso" will premiere on November 5 on ABS-CBN, replacing the afternoon series "Pintada."
