JM de Guzman shares reason why he chooses to stay single for now.
When it comes to the matters of the heart, JM de Guzman admitted that he chooses to stay single at the moment to focus on his goals despite wanting to find love.
In an interview with the actor-singer at his contract signing with Star Music, he remarked, "Gusto ko na talaga magkaroon ng relasyon ulit kasi masaya 'di ba? Pero so far hindi yata nag-a-agree ang universe sa gusto ng utak ko kasi for now siguro kailangan ko muna i-focus ko don sa blessings and opportunities kasi siyempre my family needs me too and my future family too kasi I want also to be a father someday too, it's my dream and goal. I want to prepare for that, I want to secure them, so 'yung alam kong makaka-drag sa akin ngayon and makaka-defocus sa akin, iwasan."

JM shared that his counselor also advised him to stay single for two years. It can be recalled that he went to rehab twice to recover from substance abuse. "Sinabi lang naman niya na hindi advisable sa akin [to be in relationship] and i-try ko muna maging single, i-reconstruct 'yung lifestyle ko, ibalik 'yung buhay ko na mag-isa ng malakas at ng solid kasi never ko pang na-try 'yun kasi I was inside-out, inside-out [the rehab], so 'yung stability ko and 'yung pag-secure ko sa ground it will take time," he said.
When asked what he learned from his previous relationship that he wants to apply the moment he will be ready to fall in love again, he replied, "Natutunan ko na huwag mag-hold ng grudges over love kasi bitter ka 'di ba parang ang pangit ng love, parang dinimdumihan mo 'yung pangalan. Parang di ka na tuloy nakakapagmahal ng totoo kasi laging may bahid ng past so para sa akin kung ano man 'yung magagandang nadulot sa'yo ng love pwede mo namang panghawakan pa rin 'yun, ma-inspire pa rin don, pwede ka pa rin makaramdam ng ganon sa isang tao," he said.
