Dominic Roco is not in the least worried about his lack of love life.
After his breakup with Maxene Magalona in 2012, he's been happily single.
He told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the recent press conference for Juan Happy Love Story, "I’ve been single for four years, and I have no problem with that.
“Siguro ayoko lang ng pressure of being in a relationship.
“Sa totoo lang, mas okey ako ngayon. I enjoy being single.
“It’s a choice and I am not ashamed to be single."
Even his family does not seem to mind.
The son of Bembol Roco said, "I guess, they just don’t care kung may girlfriend ako o wala.
"No one in my family naman is asking kung bakit wala akong serious relationship ngayon.
"I doubt if they’ve noticed na four years na ang nagdaan at walang nali-link sa akin romantically.
"I guess they don’t bother me to ask kung kelan ako mag-aasawa.
"I’m just 27 years old, and I’m still enjoying my life.
"Alam naman siguro ng family ko na ayokong ma-pressure. I just want to live my life the way I want it.
"Eventually, magbabago naman ang lahat. But for now, enjoy muna tayo habang bata pa."
He gets pressured though by his friends.
“Ang mga friends ko pa ang mas worried on why I’m not in a relationship for so long.
“They would ask me, ‘Bakit wala ka pang girlfriend?’
“I would answer, ‘Ayaw ko pa, e. Wag ninyo akong pilitin.’"
WHY? Dominic does not take love lightly.
He explained, "When you’re in a relationship kasi, it’s a big responsibility at ako, hindi pa ready for such a big responsibility.
"May mga taong kaya ‘yan agad. Hanga ako sa kanila.
"Iba-iba kasi ang mga tao especially when it comes to handling relationships."
He also thinks that once he becomes stable, he won't have a hard time looking for the one.
"If you’re ready to settle down, that’s the only time you find someone."
But there are days when he couldn't help but envy his friends who have already settled down.
"I admit na I get a little jealous when I see my friend na may family na.
"And they’re happy with what they have.
"I also want that someday.
"Pero kailangan yung ready na talaga ako to settle down.
"Kaya habang wala pang nahahanap na right girl, stay single and enjoy.
"You don’t have to rush things."
