Sometimes it’s hard for women to understand what’s going on inside a guy’s mind. They get stuck with “it looks like he likes me, but he doesn’t make a move.”
So we asked the hot bachelors Christian Bautista and Marlon Stockinger why they are still single despite being qualified as meet-the-parents type.
Performer Christian Bautista speculated, “I think during that phase in their life, meron pa silang gustong i-achieve for themselves, or di pa nila nakikita yung partner nila na talagang will complement them for life.”
“But not in general,” the singer-actor clarified.
Race car driver Marlon Stokinger added that it’s all about “timing.”
Due to his busy schedule, he admitted that he “can’t do both at the same time.”
He explained, “If you’re a guy and if you really want to be a gentleman to a woman you’re pursuing or a woman you’re in a relationship with, I think the last thing you want is be unfair to them.
“So in the end, if you have a job or you have a commitment that you know takes a lot of your time, you just don’t wanna be unfair in the sense that you only think about yourself.
“When you look into a relationship, it’s all about having an equal balance. And sometimes that balance is just out of sequence for whatever reason you have to do your own thing.
“With the time frame that I have, I can’t do this [racing] when I’m 33 or ten years down the road… It can only happen now.”
“So I’d rather focus on my racing, make sure that I get there. And then think of the things after when that does happen.”
LIGAW TIPS. Apart from “personal fulfilment” and “self-validation,” there are also torpe [nerdy] guys who just can’t ask a girl out no matter how much he likes her.
For those who can’t make a move, Christian Bautista said you shouldn’t hesitate and you should tell it like it is.
He advised, “First two to three days, aminin mo na lahat. Sabihin mo na lahat ng katotohanan about you, try to get it out to that other person.
“So that you don’t waste your time figuring each other out for the rest of your lives.”
David Semerad, the boyfriend of beauty queen Gwendoline Ruais, also believes in being true to your feelings.
He interjected, “I think you just have to be yourself, be confident. Gwen said that's what caught her attention. I was just me and I was honest.”
