MANILA, Philippines – Actor Enchong Dee denied he and young actress Julia Montes are already a couple, but he admitted that he is courting the “Mara Clara” star.

In an interview with Push.com.ph, Dee revealed he has always had a crush on Montes. “Oo, definitely. Definitely may admiration. Hindi naman makakaila yun. Sino ba namang hindi ‘di ba?”

Dee, however, said he is happy with his single status and he does not want to rush things between him and Montes.

“Huwag na muna. Basta ang masasabi ko lang masaya ako na not necessarily having a girlfriend or having a relationship naman yun eh. Basta yung inspiration lang para uuwi ka masaya ka, yung mga ganun,” he said.

“Bigyan niyo naman ako ng pagkakataon manligaw. Ha ha ha. Hindi ko masasabi kung siya eh. Close kami. We’re happy. Hindi lang kami nagkikita for awhile. Siguro mas padalagahin pa natin siya, ganun. Hindi pa kami. Hindi pa naman. Siguro kapag 18 na siguro siya,” the actor added.

Dee shared that if ever he and Montes become a couple, she would be his first showbiz girlfriend.

“If ever, sa showbiz siya yung magiging first girlfriend. Sana. I had one girlfriend sa swimming, then one nung college pa,” he revealed.

Meanwhile, Dee, who will be celebrating his birthday on November 5, said it would be a great gift if he would finally receive approval from the actress.

“Oo ba, kung sasagutin ako, ano na. Ha ha ha. Nung galing siya ng tour may binigay na siya sa akin eh. Pabango. Okay na ako sa pabango,” he said in jest.
