MANILA – While they have been a couple for over a year now, Bianca Gonzalez said she is still unsure whether she is ready to settle down with her boyfriend, Barako Bull player JC Intal.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Gonzalez said she does not want to think about marriage for now because Intal has yet to propose to her.

“I’m not sure [if I am ready]. Actually in my head, feeling ko sometimes ready ako pero feeling ko sometimes nakakatakot. But then, doon sa mga kaibigan ko na kinasal na, who have families na, they say naman na hindi ka talaga ever really ready. Parang you’ll just jump in talaga,” she said.

Asked if she sees her wedding happening in the near future, the 30-year old “Umagang Kay Ganda” host briefly said: “Hindi ko rin alam pa rin talaga.”

Gonzalez explained it would be better if people would ask Intal about this topic.

“Kasi 'di ba dito sa Pilipinas parang ang hirap kapag sumagot ang babae kasi parang either assuming ka or feeling ka. We’ll see. Usually naman kasi dito it’s the guy who initiates things. Pero I’m not rushing,” she said.

In a previous interview, Gonzalez admitted she and Intal have discussed "plans about the future."

“'Yung mga gusto naming gawin, mga dreams namin. Siyempre normal naman na mag-share ng ganoon," she said.

Once the right time comes for them to finally tie the knot, Gonzalez said she intends to observe Filipino traditions -- seeking their parents' blessing, getting engaged, then walking down the aisle.

"Ay, maghihintay ako [ng engagement]. Old school ako, eh. Kailangan magpapaalam sa magulang, the regular process, the traditional Filipino process," she said.
