Yeng Constantino is set to tie the knot in the first quarter of next year. The 25-year-old has words of advice to single women who have been waiting for love.


Patience is truly a virtue for pop rock princess Yeng Constantino who recently got engaged to her boyfriend of eight months, Yan Asuncion.

Yan is Yeng’s first boyfriend.

She said it took her a while to get into a relationship and when Yan came along, it was an answered prayer.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) Yeng generously shared how her patience paid off waiting for the love of her life.

ENJOY THE WAIT. Yeng said the best time to enjoy yourself is when you’re single. She advised to use the time alone to get to know yourself better. And be the right woman when the right man shows up.

“Okay lang yung parang, ‘Ay sana may ganun din ako.’

"Pero don’t let that desire rob your present kasi sobrang dami ang pwedeng mong gawin ngayon na sobrang productive,” Yeng intoned.

She added, “Imbis na dine-desire mo na sana dumating siya ngayon or sana dumating na yung right person, habang wala siya, i-develop mo muna yung self mo.

“Mas maganda yun, di ba? Habang nagaantay ka hinahanda mo yung sarili mo na pag dumating siya, siya rin matutuwa na pakiramdam niya ikaw yung the one for him.”


YOUR TIME. More advice from Yeng: Enjoy the time waiting for your true love. And when you find your one true love, don’t rush things. Get to know each other, accept the flaws. No one is perfect. Always give yourself and your partner time to grow and mature.

Yeng explained, “Don’t rush na, ‘Ito yung uso ngayon pakasalan na din tayo.’

“Enjoy mo yung getting to know [stage], sobrang saya nung process na nakikilala niyo yung isa’t isa.

“The more na nakikilala mo siya, nakikita mo yung flaws ng partner mo, the more na nagde-decide ka na mahalin yung partner mo.

“Grabe parang nagma-mature ka as a person na parang, ‘Uy, okay ‘to ah.’

"Hindi ka lang nag-grow in love, ikaw din bilang tao parang lumalawak din yung pagunawa mo, nagiging better ka na tao hindi lang para sa relationship niyo.

“Magugulat ka na pati sa mga tao sa paligid mo nare-relate mo yung love mo for them, sa ibang tao.

"So parang, ‘Ah ganun pala yun.’ When you love someone na ganito, ganun pala yung heart mo for that person.

“Ako, naiisip ko na may nagagawa din pala ako sa parents ko na hindi maganda. So nag-grow din ako in love sa family ko.”


INVOLVE OTHERS. Oftentimes, people in a relationship tend to forget those around them. They live in their own world, which, according to Yeng, is a no-no.

Her advice is to involve other people in helping you and your partner grow as better individuals.

“Don’t let your relationship na alisin ka sa mundo mo,” said Yeng.

“Parang nagkakaroon kayo ng sariling mundo kailangan mas nagiging involved din kayo sa families niyo, naging part kayo ng mundo ng isa’t isa.

"Mas nai-enjoy niyo yung part niya, yung part mo.”

CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY. In any relationship you always have to choose to be happy. Appreciate and enjoy the smallest things.

“Pag nag decide na kayo magpakasal, enjoy pa din.

“Yun yung pinaka-key, e, laging keep mo yung joy sa heart mo.

"Huwag mong hayaan na maapektuhan ka sa mga sasabihin nung mga tao.

"Pwede kang ma-discourage, alam mo naman yung dapat gawin.

“Yun din ang natutunan naming ni Yan sa relationship na maraming sasabihin yung mga tao.

"Kasi marami silang opinion, e.

"Pero ang magde-decide ng pinakagagawin ninyo is yung love ninyo para sa isa’t isa.

“That’s how God deals with it pero iba si God sa inyo, e.”
