MANILA -- After three years being single, actor Arjo Atayde admitted that he's dating a member of girl-group Girl Trends.


In an interview at the press conference for "OTJ: The Series" on HOOQ, Atayde refused to reveal her identity but stressed that they are now in the getting-to-know-each-other stage.

"I want to keep it to that. Ayaw ko munang (magsabi) baka ma-jinx," Atayde said, adding that he will reveal the name of the girl at the "right time."

The "Ang Probinsyano" star said that aside from going out several times, she also attended his recent birthday party and met his parents for the first time.

"For me, whatever goes, I'm happy naman," Atayde said. 

Asked what he likes about her, the actor said: "Simplicity, hindi pa-sosyal, hindi siya showbiz. She's in showbiz but she's very simple."

Early this year, Atayde was romantically linked to actress Jane Oineza.

In the interview, however, the actor clarified that he and Oineza were never an item.

"Actually hindi kami naging talaga, walang kami. We are friends and maybe na misinterpret lang siguri ng ibang tao," he said
