Nikki Gil has finally decided to start a new chapter in her life, seven months after her five-year relationship with singer-host Billy Crawford came to an end.

The Kapamilya actress and TV host admitted to being back in the dating game, intimating how the moment “felt right.”

The 26-year-old Gil described the guy three years his senior as, doing an “adult job.”

“I mean, sobrang different from what we do,” she explained.

Asked if she was afraid to trust again after her breakup with Crawford, Gil remarked: “Surprisingly hindi.”

She explained, “Kasi alam kong it’s not like that all the time. Parang ito (her past relationship with Crawford), nagkataon lang. Love isn’t supposed to be like this. Hindi siya dapat masakit. Hindi ka dapat umiyak.”

Despite the split, Gil is nevertheless thankful that all the publicity around it seemingly provided a dating “filter” of sorts.

“I think that in itself, parang napi-filter na ‘yung mga i-de-date mo. Parang for them to come up to you, knowing where I came from, they must mean business,” she explained.

She stressed that this is a good thing as, “Hindi ako ‘yung type na susubok nang susubok, kasi alam ko kung ano ‘yung gusto ko. Binigyan ko rin naman ang chance ko to meet (other guys). Pero kasi hindi ko kaya. I don’t have to play the game. Hindi ko kaya.”

She maintained, “Huwag lang ‘go and explore,’ kasi maha-hurt ka rin in the process. Oo, makikipag-date ka, pero sana ‘yung ide-date mo, pasok na sa gusto mo.”

And what does he look for in a guy exactly?

According to Gil, the person should be, first and foremost, “Godly.”

She elaborated, “Hindi lang ‘yung masabi lang na nagsisimba. I want someone that actually has a deep relationship with God. At saka walang history of ano…”

Though she no longer harbor ill-feelings against ex-boyfriend Crawford, who has admitted to wooing “It’s Showtime” co-host Coleen Garcia, GIl maintained that, “(I) just don’t think of him.” (MNS)

So, ang masasabi ko lang, people have already made their decisions whatever or whoever they are and they speculate kasi buhay namin open book,” Crawford said. “Andi became a friend of mine through the film. We became close that’s really true. I already apologized to Andi dahil nadadamay siya sa personal life ko. I don’t mean harm for anyone. Kaya ayaw ko na lang magsalita kasi they already made up their mind at hahaba lang ng hahaba,” he added.
