MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actor Arjo Atayde broke his silence and admitted that he and Kapuso actress Maine Mendoza are “exclusively dating.” 

On Tuesday at the press conference of his upcoming movie “Tol," the actor was asked by the media if he and Maine are now in a relationship, as reported.
“No, but we are exclusively dating and I’m the happiest right now. Hanggang doon na lang po muna," Arjo said. 

When asked what he likes about the “Eat Bulaga” host, Arjo said, “Everything. I’m just really happy.”

Some fans of Maine and Alden Richards' loveteam (AlDub) who are not in favor of the brewing romance between her and Arjo expressed their dismay on social media, with some saying that the Kapamilya actor is riding on Maine’s popularity.
In response, Arjo challenged his critics to do the bashing to him in person so that he can defend himself. 

“I don’t know how to get mad. I don’t know how to disrespect people. I despise disrespectful people. If they disrespect me, it’s fine, though. But for my family to get affected, for Maine to be disrespected… that’s not okay with me. Do it in front of me, try it. I dare you guys. I dare you!” Arjo said. 

Arjo and Maine have been spotted together in different establishments during the last quarter of 2018 which fueled speculations that they are dating. The two reportedly met on the set of Maine’s Metro Manila Film Festival movie “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.”
