The two first met at the story conference of the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles in July 2018, a movie where Maine played one of the lead roles as Emily "Em" Fernandez, and Arjo played a supporting role as Andrew Montenegro.
To celebrate this milestone, Maine posted a photo on Instagram with the caption: "happy first," to which Arjo replied: "I’m crying.. I love you."
Arjo also took it to Instagram to share a photo of them (looking so happy by the beach!) to commemorate this special day: "Thank you for everything, babs. Happy first anniversary!!! I love you."
Rumors about the two being an item started when they were spotted together in public in September 2018 during an event for Maine's collaboration project with MAC Cosmetics. Arjo, along with other celebrities such as Christine Babao and Sheena Halili, came to support Maine. This was followed by multiple sightings of the two going out for dinner in Makati and partying in Bonifacio Global City in October 2018.
However, it was only in January 2019 when Arjo said that he was exclusively dating Maine. He said, "we are exclusively dating, and I’m the happiest right now."
Meanwhile, it was during Maine's birthday in March 2019 when she finally admitted to dating Arjo. Two months later, Maine had a Havana-themed belated birthday celebration with her fans, where they were spotted being sooo cute.
We're so happy for these two! Happy anniversary, Maine and Arjo!
