It seems that Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo has culled a lot of knowledge these days when it comes to love and falling in love. This she displayed during the recently-concluded blogger’s conference of her newest rom-com film under Star Cinema and Viva Films titled Maybe This Time opposite award-winning actor Coco Martin. The actress openly and extensively talked about when would be the right time to fall in love.
"Pag-ibig? Katulad ng sinabi ni Coco, walang makakasabi sa atin kung ano ang pag-ibig na talagang nakalaan para sa iyo. Kapag ikaw ay nagmamahal, siyempre gusto mo na mag-last forever,” she began.
While she believes that a person should give “100%” of love for his/her partner, she underscored that “dapat alam mo kung paano rin aalagaan ang sarili mo.”
The Voice Kids coach even went on cryptically opening up about a certain “first time” experience which many presumed to be about her love life. "Para sa akin nga wala pa naman ako sa posisyon pero kung anuman ang mga pinagdadaanan ko ngayon ay first time kong nae-experience sa buhay ko," she added. "Magti-26 na ako pero first time kong nae-experience ang lahat ng ito. Basta ang importante lang siguro ay you seek guidance kay Lord, 'di ba? Ipagdasal mo lang kung ano ang will Niya talaga."
According to Sarah, everything about her—even her own love life—she has subjected to the Lord’s will because “Kung tayo lang ay go lang tayo nang go, hindi ba? Kapag nagmahal tayo, talagang ipaglalaban mo. Pero kapag si Lord na ang nagbigay ng senyales na, ‘Anak, tuloy lang, anak... Tama na.’ Maniniwala tayo na si Lord ay in-charge din sa love life natin.”
When asked to clarify about that first time experience that she was talking about, Sarah suddenly backpedaled and only shared “Siguro ang mga pinagdadaanan ko sa buhay ko, yung mga personal sa buhay ko na pinagdadaanan ko, ayun… Mahirap magbigay ng personal details, pero in time…”
The question however remains, is she and Matteo Guidicelli a couple now?
"Alam niyo po, bilang respeto sa pelikula at sa leading man ko, hindi tamang panahon para sagutin ang personal issues," she said.
The young diva has been relentlessly linked with athlete-actor Matteo Guidicelli after they were seen spending time together.
While they have both stayed mum on the real score between them by saying that they would reveal what is there to reveal “in due time,” fans couldn’t help but presume that they are already an item especially since sometimes, the two are seen with Sarah’s parents, Mommy Divine and Daddy Delfin Geronimo.
Meanwhile, the film, which tackled the botched love affair and the closure (or the lack thereof) between Coco and Sarah’s characters Tonio and TepTep, has taught her a thing or two about love.
“Mamimili ka ng klase ng pagmamahal… kasi merong pagmamahal na mababaw. Hindi naman tayo nandito para manghusga ng pagmamahal na pinagdadaanan ng bawat tao, pero at the end of the day, we want to have the kind of love na buung-buo sa puso mo, na hindi lang dahil you want to please the other person, the other half. Dapat masayang-masaya ka rin dahil naging totoo ka sa sarili mo,” she explained.
Directed by Jerry Sineneng, Maybe This Time is currently showing in theaters nationwide.
