Yeng Constantino wants Victor Asuncion to be her first and last boyfriend.


070513-yeng_main.jpgFor the first time since she announced that she’s officially in a relationship via Instagram, Yeng Constantino gave details about her non-showbiz boyfriend Victor Asuncion who is four years older than her. Formerly a member of a band, Victor works as a worship director in Victory Christian Church in Greenhills. Sobrang masaya po ako. Ngayon ko lang naranasan ang ganitong klaseng saya. Para akong nasa cloud nine. Palagi yun [kaming naghahawak kamay]. Sobrang iba talaga ang feeling. Mas lalong inspired ka to be just excellent in everything you do. Sobrang blessing siya sa akin,” she excitedly shared during the press con of Samsung Galaxy last Wednesday afternoon, July 3.

 

Yeng also revealed that they became a couple last June 18. Apparently, they met through a common friend last year. “Kaibigan ko siya since last year. Nagkakilala lang kami through a friend, nagkaka-hang out. He decided to pursue me last year. Medyo may ganap na hindi nagkita ng matagal. And then when we saw each other again, parang, ‘Ay eto na yun.’ Feeling ko eto na yun.”

 

For the longest time, Yeng had been very open about being a so-called NBSB (No boyfriend since birth). She was determined to wait for the right person to come along even though she also had several suitors from showbiz. “[This time] parang natanggal fear ko na ibigay yung oo ko, naramdaman ko na secured ako sa kanya. Sobrang nakakatuwa lang. Ito yung reward of really waiting on God. Worth it lahat ng iniiyak ko dati na, ‘Lord, naiinip na ako. Gusto ko na magka-boyfriend.’ Ay, kaya pala ako pinaghihintay. Meron palang one na makikita mo na hindi lang basta kilig. Kinikilig naman ako before pero iba yung joy na nararamdaman ko ngayon.

 

Yeng further shared that Victor really made an effort to pursue her and prove his sincerity to her parents. At the same time, her parents trust her enough to make the right decisions. “Nagpunta siya sa bahay, alam mo yung traditional, pero more of getting to know talaga. Tanggap naman nila yung boyfriend ko. Masaya si Papa at Mama para sa akin. Basta ang sabi lang nila, ’Anak ingatan mo sarili mo.’ Siyempre alam naman na kritikal yung ganyang stage, kapag may magawa ka mang mali, magiging domino effect. Sobrang grateful ako na pinaalalahanan ako magulang ko na magingat sa ginagawa ko.”

 

The fact that Victor has a very close relationship with God was also a huge factor why Yeng fell in love with him. “Nagustuhan ko yung love niya para sa mga tao. When he speaks about malasakit, like kapag nakakakita siya ng mga tao, yun lang gusto niya gawin. He really wants to serve God. Yun ang pinakarurok para sa akin kasi naniniwala ako na kapag ang lalaki mahal si God, alam na alam niya kung papaano ka niya mamahalin. Hindi naman siya magiging perpekto, alam ko naman yun eh, kasi tao po ‘yan eh. Pero alam niya kung saan siya babalik kapag sumablay siya.”

 

But what’s more surprising about Yeng’s newfound love is that she happens to be Victor’s first girlfriend as well. “Mas siya nga nakita na sign. Ako desisyon lang talaga. Sabi niya sa akin, madaming magandang babae pero—nakakakilig naman—parang umaangat daw ako. Hindi raw niya maintindihan kung bakit kapag nakikita niya ako iba talaga nararamdaman niya. Kasi siya din eh. First girlfriend niya rin ako. Sobrang naghintay din siya. Sana siya na ang una’t huli.”

 

Since their relationship is fairly new, Yeng admitted that they’re still in the kilig-and-getting-to-know-each-other stage. For one thing, she discovered that she’s a very sweet girlfriend. “Sa magdadalawang linggo ng relationship namin ang dami ko natutunan. Kapag babae ka parang ang daming puro papunta sa ‘yo. Dapat i-pursue mo ako. Pero kapag mahal mo pala isang tao, kusa siya na anong gusto ko gawin para sa kanya. Gusto mo i-express na mahal mo siya. Hindi naman kayo pareho ng love language, pero gusto mo iparating sa kanya na mahal mo siya. Halimbawa, pumunta ako ng office niya nilinis ko table niya. Tapos naglagay ako ng food and chocolates. Hindi ko nga alam, pero sobrang gusto ko lang gawin.

 

At the same time, Yeng admitted that she likes it when her boyfriend is vocal about how he feels about her. “Inaaral pa namin ugali ng isa’t isa. Busy kasi work nun eh. Halimbawa, kapag hindi niya ako tine-text, feeling ko hindi niya ako nami-miss. Sabihin nun, ‘Sobrang namiss kaya kita. Kahit nagwo-work ako ikaw iniisip ko.’ ’Eh, bakit ’di mo ako tinext?’ ’Hindi ako matext.’ ‘Eh gusto ko mag-text ka.’ ’O sige magte-text na ako.’ Tapos yun na. Marunong na siya ngayon.”
