Melissa Ricks prefers a non-showbiz boyfriend for her next relationship


101211-melissa1_main.jpg“A lot better compared to a couple of weeks ago,” was Melissa Ricks’s answer when asked how she is now, after her breakup with Jake Cuenca six months ago. “Ang masasabi ko ngayon mas mage-enjoy ako sa buhay ko, mas lumalabas ako with friends ko, mas marami akong natutunan na hindi ko alam dati kasi closed ako sa isang bagay lang.” The mestiza actress added that her breakup taught her to open up to the world and discover new things. “Now mas nagve-venture [ako] sa [mas maraming] mga bagay. Marami na akong nakikilalang mga kaibigan and I’m happy.”

Melissa added, “Siguro ‘yung mga bagay na ganyan nangyayari sa buhay to show us and appreciate things more. Kailangang pagdaanan talaga. Siguro hindi lang one heartbreak maybe there’s more [in the future pero] at least napatibay ako.”

The star of Nasaan Ka Elisa? also prefers not to talk anymore about Jake. When asked for her reaction on Jake’s statement that he never lost respect for her, Melissa replied vaguely, “Wala. Hindi na lang ako magre-react. Kung ano ang sasabihin niya, ‘yun na lang.” She also said that she is not yet open to be friends with her ex-boyfriend.

Melissa said that she is currently not seeing anyone but added quickly that she is open to suitors. “Sabi ko kasi noon hindi I won’t entertain. Pero ngayon na-realize ko dapat i-enjoy ‘yung life kung may dumating na tao na I think think is right for me [and] kaya talagang magpakita ng maganda sa akin, why not? Pero ngayon wala pa naman.”

The actress made it clear that although she is open to suitors, she will be more careful before jumping into another relationship. “Siguro kung magko-commit ako, kailangang magsikap muna ng tao ng bonggang-bongga bago ako umoo,” she explained.

For her next relationship, Melissa explained that she wants a non-showbiz guy for a boyfriend. She reasoned, “Para hindi nauungkat ‘yung buhay n’yo, ‘yung nai-issue. Kasi right now it’s over six months [since I broke up with Jake] and ‘yun pa rin ‘yung issue ‘di ba? Sabi ko ako I’m moving on na, sana everyone else will move on na rin. Ulit-ulit na lang. ‘Pag inaano ako ng music and dim lights, napapaiyak tuloy ako, so ‘di ba? Tama na. Tama na. Happy na lang.”
