Because in September, we're celebrating our similarities and differences with guys, we just had to ask our September cover boy Enrique Gil about this and more! Hear him out because this guy's a secret romantic, we think.
On being the overprotective kuya: "Hindi naman, hindi naman [ako overprotective]! Syempre kung masama [yung guy], *makes a fierce face.* Hindi, joke lang! Pag masama sya, syempre that’s when I make a move. Pag hindi naman, takutin lang natin. *laughs* Joke lang!" He then adds, "I asked her naman [about suitors], she said wala pa kasi they’re afraid daw of me and my brother. Tinatanong ko nga sya kung ano’ng ginagawa namin ba’t sila takot, because we’re not even doing anything! And she just tells me na, 'I don’t know, they’re just afraid of you.' Pero sabi n’ya may nang-aasar daw sa kanya sa school. But I just tell her na 'Ano ba, may crush lang sa’yo yun.'"
On the guy advice he wants to give his sister: "Best advice na masasabi ko sa kanya is just don’t be stupid. No, I’m just kidding! I’m just kidding! I want her to know this: If you feel like you can’t live without that person, then you love him. You just have to feel it."
On what he wants girls to know about the male species: "What I want girls to know about guys is that ayaw namin ng gulo. And that nasasaktan rin kami. Joke lang!" He continues, "Ang hirap naman mag-isip! Ang dami kong gusto nilang malaman! Just kidding. I want them to know na we don’t want arguments. Ayaw namin ng gulo, ayaw maming nag-aaway. Usually girls like to confront us and they want to start talking. Guys kasi want to just say na, 'Ayaw ko ng gulo' or, 'Please, wag na tayong mag-away.' Ewan ko sa iba, pero gano'n ako."
On how he lets a girl know he's crushing on her: "I don't. Alam nya na dapat yun, e! Syempre nakikita nya pag tumitingin ako, so dapat alam nya na yun. For me, hindi na kailangan sabihin pa. Dapat sa tingin pa lang alam nya na. Syempre darating sa point na sasabihin ko yun, pero dapat alam nya na pag tumingin ako kasi hindi ko na matatago yun. Pag gusto mo yung isang tao, hindi na kailangan sabihin diba?"
On the craziest thing he did for a girl: "Dati may sinurprise ako, sobrang dati pa. I can’t remember kungbirthday nya or monthsary namin. Natutulog sya and I asked permission from her mom and went to her housedala lahat ng presents ko for her, plus balloons. So pagbaba nya from her room I was just sitting there and she was surprised. Best gising ever nya yun!"
On how he knows that he's in love: "Pag hindi na ako gumigimik, kasi hindi na ko pinapayagan e. Joke lang! Hindi gano’n. Siguro in love ako pag yung nasasaktan ka rin ako, kahit mali ko. Ako na yung nasasaktan for her. Or pag there’s something in that person na di ko talaga ma-explain. Pag tinitingnan ko sya, may something lang talaga. Usually kasi you say na mahal ko sya kasi ganito or ganyan, pero sa akin iba e. May something ka para sa taong yun na unexplainable."
