Isang ikinatutuwa nang husto ni Derek sa nasabing girl ay mahilig din ito sa sports na katulad niya.
"Yeah, I'm very happy. I'm dating somebody. You know, I'm taking my time. But she is definitely somebody that I'm very interested in.
"She is into sports and loves to travel. Although she doesn't travel that much. So, I'm gonna see if I can get her to see the world like I have.
"I like that kind of thing (travelling). It doesn't have to be my girlfriend. If you ask any of my friends, I'm like that to them. Kung kaya ko, isasama ko sila," dayalog ng morenong hunky actor.
Gaano kaseryoso ang relasyon nila ng bagong girl na ito sa buhay niya?
"I don't know. I don't wanna put any labels as of now. Naks! But what I can say is we're both very happy. Very, very happy," nakangiting sey ni Derek.
Saan sila nagkakilala ni sporty girl?
"Sport. You know, it's not her beautiful features that attracted me to her. It's how she's driven with her sport.
"How she's parang walang pakialam na masaktan. Kahit nasa ilalim siya ng araw, hindi nagsa-sunblock. Walang kakikay-kikay!"
Mas okey ba 'yon na pareho silang mahilig sa sports ng isang girl?
"It's definitely a bonus. Because you know, you share something that you're both passionate about.
For me, it doesn't have to be fine dining, wine and all this.
"For me, mas okey pa sa akin na we both go out in the field, kick a ball around or toss a Frisbee or go camping.
"Those are the things that we do. Yeah, she plays Frisbee!"
Masasabi niya bang love na ito?
"Love is a very complicated thing. Let's not abuse it. Love is a great thing, but sometimes it gets abused. So, nakakalimutan natin 'yung true definition of love because of the want of being in love."
Gaano katagal na ba silang nagdi-date ni sporty girl?
"Wala pa, wala pa. It's just… we're both taking our time."
So, isang non-showbiz girl ang napupusuan niya ngayon?
"Yeah. She just got out of a relationship, I just got out of a relationship. It seems like I just did, but it's been almost a year na. Ha! Ha! Ha!
"I want to be more quiet (with this one). Like with my family, I had six years (with Angelica Pa- nganiban) that the whole world, the whole country was watching. Mahirap din," sambit ng 32-anyos na binata.
Isang Pinay athlete ang nasabing girl na a- yaw i-reveal ni Derek ang name. Maybe one day ay maglalaro rin daw ito para sa Philippine team ng Frisbee dahil mahusay ito sa nasabing sports na paborito ni Derek.
"She plays Ultimate Frisbee and she surfs," masayang pagmamalaki ni Derek tungkol sa bago niyang girl.
Sa Oktubre 24 ang showing nationwide ng A Secret Affair.
