Coleen Garcia Admits That It Will Be Hard To Have A Long-Distance Relationship With Boyfriend Gab ValencianoColeen Garcia said that it will be hard for her once boyfriend Gab Valenciano leaves for the United States to study at the Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.
She shared that last Valentine’s Day, she and Valenciano spent the day with his parents. She said that it was the first time that they spend the whole day with his parents, so she’s very happy about that.
However, Valenciano will be leaving in early April. They will also be celebrating their first year anniversary this March.
“He's leaving kasi, pinag-uusapan pa namin how to go about this, if we will focus on ourselves first. Kasi medyo mahirap yung long distance lalung-lalo na kung hindi mo alam kung hanggang kelan,” she told PEP.PH during the launch of Close-UP’s Summer Solstice Music Festival in Makati City.
Valenciano will be studying in the university for two years. After that, Garcia said that he may want to work there in the United States. She was also asked if they are already planning to get married.
Garcia said that they are still too young to think about marriage. She said that when she thinks about marriage, she knows that there are a lot of things that she needs to sacrifice.
“And I feel I don’t have a lot of things to give up yet, kasi kailangan ko pang dumating sa level na yun na may maipagmamalaki ako bago ko i-give up yun,” she told PEP.PH.
She admitted that she was very sad about Valenciano’s impending departure for the United States, but she doesn’t want to show it because she wants to be strong for him as well.
Garcia said that although she can visit Valenciano in Florida, she doesn’t want to rely on that because she has her life here in the Philippines. She added that her focus is her career and her family.
Garcia, according to PEP.PH, is living independently. And even though she came from a well-off family, Garcia said that she doesn’t want to rely on her parents’ support. She maintained though that she is in touch with them, and that they have a very healthy relationship.
