After being handpicked for his role in the “First and Last” episode of the latest eight-part anthology series Love Bites, Concon Felix said he is proud to be chosen along with his onscreen partner Kyzha Villalino.

“Sobrang happy. Sabi kasi ni direk Dado (Lumibao) matagal na niyang gustong gawin ito and I’m happy na naging part ako nito. Sobrang nakaka-excite kasi dun natin malalaman na hindi porke LGBT ka or member ka ng community, wala na yung first love or hindi mo ma-fi-feel yung first love. Human tayo, so kung ano yung na-fi-feel ng mga tao, ganun din tayo. May mga first love tayo na hindi natin ini-expect na sila pala,” he shared.

In the episode, a hopeless romantic girl named Mel (Kyzha) who lives in a boarding house for girls has a dream that she wants a first love that can also be her last. She crosses paths with another boarder whom she initially mistakes for as a man trespassing in their place and whom she eventually finds a connection with. Concon shared his opinion on why girl-to-girl relationships are strong.

“Siguro kasi dahil nga girl pareho, alam nila kiliti ng bawat isa (laughs). But still, ganun pa rin naman sa relasyon, kailangan niyo magpasensiya sa mga ugali niyo. Kailangan niyo tanggapin kung sino kayo and respeto, communication, pagiging genuine, at kailangan maging open kayo kasi dun nasisira ang isang relationship kapag hindi niyo na open sa isa’t isa yung mga nakikita niyong mali. Sa GL na ganito, mas emotional siguro pero pareho pa rin sa mga straight na relationships,” he explained.

When it comes to first love, Concon said it doesn’t have to be perfect all the time.

“Hindi mo naman kailangan ng ideal. Wala yan sa ideal na gusto mo. Pag dumating yung tao yun na yun talaga, pag na-feel mo na special siya or what, ayun na. Wala na yung standards mo, wala na yung ideal mo, ganun. Pero yun naman sa umpisa talaga eh. Pagka nagkagusto ka sa isang tao, gugustuhin mo yan kahit anong mangyari. Siguro ang pinakamahirap lang isa kung paano ka mag-i-i-stay kasi magkaiba ugali niyong dalawa. Pero dahil nga magkaiba yung ugali niyo, makikita mo pa rin yung good side niya na may respeto dito, marespeto sa sarili, God-fearing,” he said.

The new actor also shared why he thinks first and last love can both be equally unforgettable.

“Depende sa tao siguro. Pero sa first love dun mo ma-fi-feel lahat ng una. Dun mo ma-fi-feel yung kung paano magmahal, kung saan ka first masasaktan and for sure pag sinabing first love kasi, parang ang hirap mag-move on pag first love. Sobrang hirap kasi first mo yun eh. Pero last love din mahirap din siyang kalimutan depende kung paano mo minahal yung tao, kung paano kayo naging masaya, kung paano kayo nasaktan ng sobra. I think may tatak yung first love kasi yun yung una mo talaga. Iiyak ka ng iiyak. Tapos after malalaman mo na kaya mo pala magmahal ulit,” he added.
