- Vina Morales said she doesn’t need a partner to make her feel complete
- Despite her age, she has found contentment with the many blessings she has, including her daughter, family and career
- The actress said she wants to love herself first before she learns to love others
At an age where everyone seems to be happily building families of their own, Vina Morales shared why she is choosing to stay single.
Aside from her success and fame, it looks like the actress is also finding contentment in her choice to be single. For Vina, being single is not a big deal at all as she would rather take care of herself first than find a partner. She said, “I think you have to love yourself first before people could really appreciate you and love you back.”
The actress said it’s best to learn “self-love” before you could actually start loving a partner. By learning to love yourself, you’re bringing in that positivity in your li
fe, Vina said.
“Self-love muna bago magmahal ng kapwa mo. Ganun ‘yun e… if you feel good about yourself, mas maraming positivity ang mangyayari at pakikisama mo sa kapwa mo. So I guess love and respect for yourself are the first things that you need to have in your life,” she said.
Vina continued that she doesn’t mind being single for so long because she’s already surrounded with many blessings, her daughter, career and family.
She said, “Parang ang tagal na rin, 3 years na ata [akong single]. Parang hindi ko na nga binibilang e. If you love yourself, you don’t need somebody naman there to complete you. Andiyan ang pamilya ko, ang anak ko. May trabaho ako, may business ako, so what more can I ask for, ‘di ba?”
After breaking up with her French boyfriend, Vina was said to have dated a US-based non-showbiz guy but she clarified they are really just friends.
But Vina’s lovelife became controversial when she got involved with businessman Cedric Lee, the father of her daughter. While it ended bitterly, Vina said it taught her many things about herself. “I insisted on carrying on with something that people considered doomed from the start. It didn’t end well, of course. I’m better off single,” she said.
