MANILA – One of the biggest lessons Luis Manzano has learned about relationships is that guys should not be afraid of taking the lead.

In an interview with Bianca Gonzalez for her column on The Philippine Star, the Kapamilya host advised guys to “be in control, not necessarily dominating, but you have to take the lead.”

“Every time you are in a new relationship, you always want to feel like a baby. We have this longing to be taken care of… We have this longing that it’s all going to be okay, someone’s going to pat or rub our backs, but at our age now, we have to take over our lives in general,” he explained.

Referring to his past relationships, the 33-year-old TV host said: “I’ve had my fair share of mistakes. I’ll be the first one to admit. I’m far from perfect. But hindi ako palagi may kasalanan.”

Manzano is currently in a relationship with actress Angel Locsin. They have rekindled their romance early this year after being separated for four years.

While they were separated, Manzano was in a relationship with Jennylyn Mercado, while Locsin was with Phil Younghusband.

Asked what the nicest thing is about reconciling with Locsin, Manzano said: “Realizing you are the same people rediscovering each other!”

Manzano and Locsin officially became a couple again last February 7. Since then, the two have been vocal in saying that settling down is definitely somewhere in the horizon.
