Jake Cuenca on parting ways with Melissa Ricks: 'It was an official breakup'


073111-jake_main.jpgAlthough Jake Cuenca refused to say the real reason why things didn’t work out between him and Melissa Ricks, he stressed that they had a proper closure to their relationship. “Oo, yung breakup namin, it was an official breakup. After coming out of a relationship, you need time to heal. And siguro ito yung panahon na yun. Kailangan niyong magbigay ng space sa isa’t isa. For all the pain I’ve caused her, kung nasaktan ko man siya, she’s healing, respetuhin natin ‘yun,” said Jake in an exclusive interview with The Buzz Magazine.

Jake admitted that they kept their relationship a secret for two years and that it was the longest he ever had. But even to this day, he refrained from disclosing what went wrong along the way. “What made our relationship special was that it was between me and Mel. Just because we broke up, that doesn’t mean na puwede ko nang idetalye ang naging relationship namin. Hindi po akong perpektong tao. One thing we learned out of this experience is to learn from our mistakes.”

If anything else, there was no third party involved according to Jake. “In our breakup, there was no third party involved. Kumbaga, we had issues of our own na pinag-usapan namin. Sinabi rin naman ni Mel na walang third party.”

When asked if it was easier for him to move on with his life, Jake was quick to say that he’s not ready to jump into a new relationship at this point in time. But being surrounded by his loved ones helped him cope with his failed romance. “Nakakalungkot man na nawalan ako ng karelasyon, I’m looking at the positive side of things. Life is not perfect. Hindi puwedeng lahat na sa ’yo. Dapat talaga binibilang mo lang ang blessings mo, eh.”
