MANILA – Despite having close friends who are all in a romantic relationship, Shaina Magdayao said she is patiently waiting to meet the right one for her.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, Magdayao said she does not mind being single because she knows her time to enter into a relationship will also come.
“I am very, very okay. I am busy right now and oo, I am still single. Hindi [ko priority ang love life]. Pero kapag tinatanong naman sa akin kung ready na ako or kung wine-welcome ko na yung thought of having someone again in my life, then yes. Kung ibibigay ni Lord, kung dadating, dadating,” she said.
Magdayao shared she has already healed from her last heartbreak.
“Kailangan mo ibigay sa sarili mo ‘yun eh. You have to give yourself time to heal para buo ka ulit when you enter another relationship,” she said.
Asked if she wants her next boyfriend to also be her last, Magdayao said, “Oo naman. Bakit ka pa papasok sa isang relationship kung sasayangin mo lang ang oras mo? I’m praying for that. Kaya lang hindi pa binibigay ni Lord. Hindi pa niya binibigay. Sinusulat pa ni Lord ang love story ko. Wala pang ending.”
But while she is still waiting for Mr. Right, Magdayao said she is happy to be surrounded by inspired people.
Among Magdayao's close friends in showbiz are Bea Alonzo, Toni Gonzaga and Angel Locsin -- who all have boyfriends.
“Hindi [ako naiinggit sa kanila]. I’m happy for them. I know that my time will come. Bakit naman tayo maiinggit eh alam naman natin na ibibigay ni Lord yun kapag gusto na niya,” she said.
Since last year, Magdayao has been romantically linked to Piolo Pascual although the two have maintained that they are not yet a couple.
