Karylle, a wife to Spongecola frontman Yael Yuzon, has a message to all single ladies.
The Mystified actress sees singlehood as something you need to embrace first before entering a serious relationship.
Speaking to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) back in February, Karylle said, "I always tell people, especially yung mga bagong single.
"I give them a big hug, and I keep saying, 'Please don't have a boyfriend.'
"Like, don't rush to your next relationship. Just have a relationship with yourself."
The It's Showtime host knows that being in a relationship can be "tempting" especially when a boyfriend becomes "sweet and they hold your hand and then they're watching K-Drama, and then you're probably like, 'Oh my god I want that!'
"But no, it's so nice to be single."
Karylle is aware how people joke that singlehood is "pathetic," but she insists it isn't.
How to be the best version of yourself? You can use this period to for self care and self love.
"It's like the best time to get to know yourself and just get it together and hang out with your friends.
"Masaya. Be single and enjoy for a while, di ba?"
Karylle firmly believes that every woman goes through their own journey in relation to marriage and family.
"For my batch, hati-hati pa rin, e. I can't say that majority got married late. I mean, I know a lot of people who got married late, but I can't say they're the majority. But I guess it happens in your own pacing talaga, e," the host-actress remarked.
Thanks to It's Showtime where she is a co-host, and its singing contest "Tawag ng Tanghalan," Karylle meets different women who share their personal journeys.
She continued, "A lot of people do advice to do your career first, but I think it's different for different women.
"Sometimes, kunwari in 'Tawag ng Tanghalan,' there are singers who do a career comeback at the age of 30 once they have had a child. And that's, in my head, the opposite of me. I respect them.
"And there's also that other side, which is me, that I work first. And I enjoy the time that it's me and my husband, so different talaga, e.
"It really depends on the woman."
