In an interview with sports website spin.ph, Yap revealed, “Basta nag-e-enjoy ako ngayon.”

Asked if there’s someone who is finally making him happy again, the basketball star said: “Wala pa naman exactly nagpapatibok ng puso ko, basta.”

"Settle down? Sabihin na lang natin na… I’m getting there," he added.

Yap, however, stressed that he is no longer interested in dating high-profile women after his relationship with Aquino failed.

“Wala, hindi na tayo pwede sa sikat, kasi magulo. Private person na lang tayo ngayon," he said.

Yap and Aquino were married in civil rites in 2005. They separated in June 2010, and their marriage was annulled in January last year.

Their only son, Bimby, will be turning 6 this April.

After his relationship with Aquino ended, Yap was rumored to be dating actress Isabel Oli. However, both denied the speculations, saying they are just good friends.

Oli is now being linked to actor John Prats.
