MANILA -- Actor Coco Martin, who is already turning 32 in November, admitted on "Tapatan ni Tunying" on Thursday that he is still single.
The "Juan dela Cruz" star said this is mainly because he is still busy with his career and helping his family.
Martin, however, said that he is steadily planning for his love life and marriage, except that now wouldn't be the right time.
"Oo naman!" Martin told "Tapatan" host Anthony Taberna when asked about marriage. "Pero bata pa naman ako. Siyempre ang mga kabataan, mas idealistic sila sa future nila, at sa career."
Although he is considered a matinee idol, Martin said he is not the kind of man who likes to court women in public.
"Di ako nakikipag-date e. Sa umpisa, siyempre, bibigyan-bigyan mo ng pagkain para may time na magkakilala," he said with a laugh.
Asked if he also did this to his leading ladies like Erich Gonzales and Maja Salvador, Martin said: "Oo pero walang malisya."
Martin added that if he is to choose, he would prefer to have a non-showbiz girlfriend, knowing that he is a jealous guy.
Asked of the qualities he is looking for in girl, the actor said: "Hindi ako mahilig sa maganda e. Kahit simple lang. 'Yung tisay, medyo may laman, maganda ang katawan, maabilidad sa buhay. Siyempre gusto mo, mapagmahal sa pamilya kasi hinahanap ko rin yung sarili ko sa kanya."
