WATCH: Julia Barretto believes it’s OK for girls to say ‘I love you’ first
Julia Barretto let fans in on what she’s like when she is in a relationship, particularly how she is more private about intimate moments. She also spoke up about girls making the first move on the men they like.
“I feel like the older you get, just the more you become protective of your intimate moments in life,” she said in a conversation with actor Marco Gumabao in her YouTube vlog posted yesterday, March 27. She added that she is not one to kiss and tell, and also expects the same from men.
“Any guy who really respects the woman that they wanna be with tapos kiniss nila (then they kissed) or had an intimate moment with, if they really respected that girl, they wouldn’t kiss and tell,” stated Barretto, who already made public her relationship with Gerald Anderson, after his admission earlier this month.
For Barretto, intimate moments are those that should be valued and protected. She also thinks intimacy should only occur when one is serious with the person they are dating.
Barretto and Gumabao also agreed that it is okay for girls to be the first to confess their feelings for a person, instead of always letting men make the first move.
“I think it doesn’t matter who expresses first. I think it’s okay when a girl lets you know how she feels, whether it’s reciprocated or not. But definitely, I believe that guys should be the one pursuing,” Barretto said. While explaining her answer, she recalled a church service she participated in where a pastor also said it’s okay for the girl to say “I love you” first.
Barretto and Gumabao also talked about first dates, on-and-off relationships, saving money in their 20s, and dating apps, which they said they do not prefer for themselves but acknowledge how it has worked for others. JB
