He's grown closer to Janine Gutierrez ever since he acknowledged courting the actress.
So when he made an appearance on "Tonight With Boy Abunda" on Thursday, Rayver Cruz was expectedly grilled about whether they have taken their relationship up a notch.
"To be honest, hindi po," he said when asked whether Gutierrez is already his girlfriend, before adding that it's not up to him to decide if his efforts would eventually lead to romance.
"Depende sa kanya kung hindi pa."
He also explained that he's not pressuring Gutierrez, saying that he is content with just enjoying each other's company for now.
Acknowledging that they're both busy with work, Cruz said: "Ang importante sa akin ngayon close kami at mas naging close pa kami . . . Masaya kami kapag magkasama kami."
Cruz, who first acknowledged courting Gutierrez in June, also revealed that he has met her parents.
Cruz was a guest on the late-night talk show to promote an upcoming episode of "Ipaglaban Mo" this Saturday.
