Ramon Bautista shares his love advice


072513-ramon_main.jpgWith a best-selling book turned to a movie titled Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo, Ramon Bautista has loads of love advice for everyone. “Pag hindi mo type, siguro utangan mo ng paminsan-minsan para malaman niya na utangan lang siya. Tapos naman pag tunay na pag-ibig, siyempre pag tunay na pag-ibig ihahatid mo ‘yan. Sa Paranaque siya nakatira tapos ikaw sa Quezon City, babayaran mo ‘yung toll gate, sa Skyway pa ang daan. Tunay na pag-ibig eh.

He added, “So siyempre ‘pag hindi mo crush, pag kapitbahay mo lang, sabihin mo lang, ‘Kuha ka lang ng tricycle, bente pesos lang yan.’ Ayon, ganon para siyempre inamin mo na agad sa kanya na, ‘Girly huwag tayong magsayangan ng oras, friends lang tayo. Para makapag move-on na siya agad kasi siyempre baka may taong nag-aabang sa kanya.

On his advice for people who are brokenhearted, “Maraming iba diyan. It’s a big world out there guys, somewhere out there may mas kikiligin sa ’yo.”

As a popular figure online, Ramon has a big following among the youth. When asked what he think is the reason of the fandom, he said, “Siguro naka-identify sila sa mga pinagsasagot ko, kasi minsan pag sagot ko hindi ko sasabihin na ibu-butter up ko pa na ‘Okay lang yan’, sasabihin kong ‘Hindi okay yan! Ayaw niya sa ‘yo noh! ‘Yun, baka gusto nila ‘yung mga bagay na ganon na katok sa ulo nila na mag-aral ka na lang, huwag ka ng main-love.” He said that maybe it has something to do with his looks too. “Bukod pa ‘yun sa [pagiging] gandang lalaki ko, ‘yung titig ko, ‘yung smile ko,” he quipped.

When asked how he handles his bashers, he relayed, “May cyber-tibay akong tinatawag. Di maiiwasan [ang bashers] pero parang kung iisipin mo okay, kung ‘yun ang opinion nila, relax ka lang kasi kung papatulan mo mas lalo lang lalaki. Opinion ‘yun eh lalo pag sa creative industry meron talagang hindi magkakagusto.

Besides being a comedian, a writer, and a radio DJ, Ramon is also a professor at UP Diliman. When asked how he avoids being typecast as a comedian and maintain a respected professor stance with his students, he shared, “Simple lang ‘yan, sa klase may kapangyarihan akong i-singko sila. Kasi alam naman nila na kung hindi sila makkikinig sa klase wala silang matutunan, na magiging singko tayo dito.

Catch Ramon Bautista with Kim Chiu and Xian Lim in Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo on July 31, 2013 in theaters nationwide.
