Kapuso hunk actor Benjamin Alves is a firm believer that age should not be an issue when it comes to dating. In an interview with PEP, the 29-year-old actor shared that 10 years ago, he dated a 35-year-old woman who is already a mom.
“But she didn’t look 35. She had one kid. I was surprised and was, like, ‘Oh, you’re 35? It’s too late now. Hahaha!’
Benjamin said that he was pretty much aware of their huge age gap. However, as for him, he really doesn’t care about such stuff. He then revealed that they dated for six months and his ex-girlfriend is from Manila. Nevertheless, he did not mention the name of the girl.
According to the actor, he enjoyed the company of his past affair because they share the same wavelength, which made them have a deeper connection.
“Again, you don’t think about things social stature… I mean, maybe when you’re getting married, you do. But when you’re dating somebody, you’re really getting that certain energy [that you both share]. That’s the real answer.”
Moreover, on another interview with PEP on Tuesday, June 26, Benjamin Alvez shared that dating someone who is 16 years older than him made him feel like an adult.
“I think at that age, you’re barely 20, you’re still trying to validate yourself as an adult. You felt more adult, you felt more mature. I think that’s a lot part of it.”
However, he clarified that he and the girl whom he refused to name were just dating.
“We weren’t like a couple. We don’t have rings or anything like that. We don’t have couple shirts.”
Tthe actor refutes the notion of most people about dating someone who has a huge age gap. He elaborated:

“We have this notion kasi when we were growing up na a 40-year-old person looks this way. It’s no longer the case. You know what I’m saying? I’m still playing roles 10 years younger than me. That can attest to it. Even for professionals, right? ‘As a girl, you should be married when you’re 20 or 30.’ Those are debunked. Those are all traditional
