After admitting that she was dating Justin Cuyugan early last year, Dawn Chang said she has no regrets being with her boyfriend whom she first met on the set of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Dawn said she and Justin, who is eight years her senior, have always been on the same wavelength. “Hindi ako mahilig sa small talk. So gusto ko may sense kausap. Gusto ko sa tao basta may sense ka kausap or sobrang wala kang sense kausap. Yung sira ulo lang tayong dalawa,” she shared.
Last February, the couple also shared more details about their relationship during a guest appearance on Magandang Buhay. Dawn said Justin made her more outgoing as a person. “Marami akong nakilalang celebrity friends because of him kasi konti lang ang celebrity friends ko. Hindi kasi ako ma-party. Hindi ako ma-inom. Eh di ba that’s when you know a lot of people instantly? Eh hindi ako ganun. Eh nung lagi kaming nagsasama tapos we’d go to the gym together before, ang dami niyang friends na pinapakilala sa akin tapos nagiging friends ko na rin sa showbiz,” she said.
Dawn said she also appreciates how understanding and mature her boyfriend is and how he was very serious about pursuing her. “Si Justin naman respects yung tandem namin ni Arron (Villaflor) sa UKG and I made it clear to Justin that I have this sort of tandem with Arron and he was fine with it. It wasn’t very clear to me before to be honest. Maarte kasi akong babae. Ganito lang ako itsura ko, pa-sexy and liberated but I’m very serious when it comes to relationships. Ayoko ng pa-showbiz na relationship. Gusto ko pag niligawan ako, liligawan ka ng maayos. Ayoko yung pinapasundo ako sa driver. Ayoko yung pinapdalahan ako ng pagkain through a driver or through a P.A. Eh si Justin kasi super effort. Lahat ng hindi ginawa ng ibang lalake sa akin sa showbiz, lahat ginawa niya. Kaya siya yung pinili ko (laughs),” she said.
