Yeng Constantino reveals why she and Rivermaya's Jayson Fernandez never worked out


032311-yeng_main.jpgAt the MYX Music Awards last March 16, Yeng Constantino was overwhelmed with happiness as she bagged five major awards including Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Music Video (for “Jeepney Love Story”), Favorite Song (“Jeepney Love Story”), Favorite MYX Celebrity VJ, and Favorite Collaboration with 6CycleMind and Kean Cipriano (for “Kung Wala Na Nga”). But when Push.com.ph asked if she had a special someone to whom she would like to dedicates her success, the talented artist said that she has no love life at the moment. “Hindi naman ako malungkot kahit walang love life. Lahat ng ginagawa ko ngayon for God, for His glory, next is my family and then my supporters. Gusto ko lang maging best ako kahit saang aspeto ng buhay lalo na sa kanya,” she began.

Yeng further shared that there have been a few guys who inspired her to keep on writing love songs, but nothing really blossomed into a full-fledged romance.  “Siyempre hindi ko maidedeny na wala akong nararamdaman. May mga crush crush talaga, may mga hinahangaan akong lalaki. May mga ganon siyempre, na kapag kinaibigan ka... mas gusto mo siyempre yung nag-start sa friendship. Tsaka mo sasabihin na, ‘Uy ok ‘to ah, mabait.’ I-che-check mo na yung standards mo kung pasok at kung hindi naman, ‘Ay hindi pumasok, sayang.’ Pero sa ngayon walang nanliligaw sa akin. Siguro hindi seasonal, parang mangga lang ‘yan e,” she joked.

Yeng was romantically linked to Rivermaya’s frontman Jayson Fernandez last year. Yeng clarified however, that they soon realized that they’re better off as friends than a romantic couple. “Ay oo. May girlfriend na yun ha! Anong nangyari sa amin? Siguro hindi lang kami swak. Mabait siya, walang mali e. Pero siguro aside sa personalities, kailangan meron kayong connection. As a friend may connection kami, pero yung aspetong in a relationship wala. Hindi nga kami nagdate e. Magkaibigan lang kami tapos inoobserbahan lang namin kung  anong pwedeng positive.”

Although it was unfortunate that things didn’t work out between them, Yeng stressed that she believes that she will find the right guy for her in God’s time. “Siguro kasi kaya hindi ako naghahanap dahil kumpleto ako, and I think yung mga taong kumpleto, sila talaga yung ready na magkaroon ng relationship kasi ibig sabihin willing na sila at ready magpakasal.

The 22-year-old added that she has also learned not to limit her ideal boyfriend to musicians. “Before bina-box ko yung sarili ko na gusto ko musician. Pero now, hindi ako naniniwala na yung gusto mo yun ang makakatagpo mo talaga. Kung sinong ilagay ni God sa path ko para makasama sa journey ko is the perfect one for me. Hindi man kailangan sobrang pareho pero yung magko-complement kami sa isa’t isa,” she concluded.
