It's still more than two weeks away but you can't blame Nadine Lustre for feeling like it's Valentine's Day already. 

This, after James Reid explained in their interview on "Gandang Gabi Vice" on Sunday the reason he needs her in his life. 

It began when host and comedian Vice Ganda shared a conversation he had with Reid when they were out partying one night. He said that Reid told him that Lustre made him feel "safe."

"That's why I need Nadine in my life because when I'm with Nadine I am myself, I am free to be myself. I do not have to pretend," Vice Ganda quoted the young heartthrob as saying. 

Expanding on what he meant, Reid said his girlfriend has helped him cope with criticisms. "Like whatever happens, whatever life throws at us -- I feel like I can overcome it."

In the same interview, the couple also talked about how they managed to keep their relationship strong for nearly two years. 

According to Lustre, the key things are "communication" and "trust."

She said that because she has so much faith in Reid, she's confident that he will never cheat on her.
