Singer and actress Nadine Lustre’s relationship with James Reid is already on its third year and is still going strong, prompting people to ask what their secret is.
In a recent interview, the Viva artist admitted that what keep them together is their mutual respect for each other and their ability to give and take.
“We’ve had adjustments especially that we have different cultures. Everyone knows that James grew up in Australia. In the span of time that we’re together, we both adjusted. We became very understanding of each other.”
“We’re not really strict in our relationship. Like for example, if I don’t want him to go to a certain place, I just tell it to him without apprehensions. What’s nice is that in the process, we’re both growing. I think that’s the best part,” she added.
How did she grow in their relationship?
“Actually its biggest impact on me is that I learned to accept myself. Before, I had many insecurities, I had lots of problems and I was always feeling stressed. Fortunately, when James arrived into my life, I learned how to relax. I learned how to let go of stress and just enjoy life. I’m glad to say that so far, our relationship is doing very well. We don’t have any serious issue and are just happy with each other.”
People also notice the big change in Nadine especially when it comes to reinventing herself. In fact, in her social media accounts, she proudly posts her bikini photos which leaves everyone in awe.
“I learned to accept myself, both my strengths and flaws. I can say I’m happy with this change.”
Interestingly, what positive changes does she think she brought out in James because of their relationship?
“Well, the most important thing that both of us learned is to just relax, take things one step at a time and love life in general. There’s no bad vibes between the two of us. We are a good influence to each other. We don’t engage in fights. We are so relaxed.”
The popular Viva talent also reveals that she’s very transparent with her boyfriend.
“Yes, I’m open to James. Everything I feel, I share with him unlike before when I was secretive. I hide what I truly feel. It gets bottled up and you feel as if it’s going to explode anytime.
“But now, if ever I have a problem, I tell James about it and the good thing is he always helps me. Jealousy does not exist in our vocabulary. We don’t let it affect our relationship. As I’ve pointed out earlier, we’re just relaxed,” ended Nadine.
