Marco Gumabao talks about experiencing heartbreak last year.
After shooting scenes for his upcoming movie Just a Stranger in Portugal with new leading lady Anne Curtis, Marco Gumabao is back to taping for his daytime series Los Bastardos. The 24-year-old actor said he is happy being single right now. “Wala, focused muna ako sa work ngayon. Hindi kasi siya nasa priority ko talaga, yung mag-girlfriend. Ako kasi pag naga-girlfriend ako, talagang tutok ako. Kung may girlfriend ako, talagang tayo lang muna. I will give you my time, ganyan. Yung pinaka-last talagang official ko na girlfriend was 2014 pero I dated someone last year,” he admitted.
Marco said he prefers to be with someone simple. “Mas gusto ko yung natural. Minsan maganda rin yung nag-aayos sila. Kunyari may date kayo or may event kayo pero I prefer na kapag kaming dalawa lang, gusto ko yung siya mismo na hindi na kailangan mag-makeup sa harap ko kasi gusto kita for who you are. Gusto ko yung mga imperfections mo. And that’s love eh. If love isn’t like that, it’s an infatuation na parang you have a picture in your head na ideal girlfriend na dapat maganda palagi, naka-dress, naka-heels, naka-makeup. Pero it doesn’t happen everyday eh. The reality is sometimes we find girls na simple. And minsan happy na tayo dun,” he shared.
The Los Bastardos actor said he experienced heartache last year. “Hindi ako palaging nagkaka-girlfriend pero with a littlest things siyempre na-ha-heartbroken rin ako. How do I get over it? Wala eh, everyone goes through it. Like hindi mo puwedeng takasan ang isang heartbreak. So you have to go through it, you have to learn from it, learn from your mistakes from before and hope that you won’t do it sa next relationship mo or hindi mangyari sa next relationship mo. How I cope with it is I go out with friends, I divert my attention to working out or to myself. I try to make myself a better person everyday. Ayoko naman kasi isipin na, ‘Ay wala akong girlfriend ngayon. Kailangan ko magka-girlfriend.’ Hindi kasi ako ganun. I really wait for love at the right time and if it’s there, go. If not, okay lang. Trabaho ako, workout ako. Natutuwa na kasi ako sa kaka-workout ko eh so okay na ako dun,” he said.
