After his "final" breakup with model Sara Grace Kelley last year, it seems that Jake Cuenca is now distancing himself from love matters.
Honest enough to admit that he really got hurt from his last relationship, Jake is now focusing on his career and triathlon.
He said, “Kasi pag nag-triathlon, maraming oras ang dapat na ibigay.
“You go home early, you sleep early, gising ka alas-singko araw-araw.
“Pero, yeah, nahahanapan ko naman ng paraan.”
However, the 29-year-old Kapamilya actor also admitted that he’s dating now.
“Non-showbiz. I don’t wanna go into details kung sino talaga or whatever.
“Basta ako, I’m just having fun.
“Ang sa akin, as long as you’re treating women right, as long as you’re giving them a good time, eventually talaga namang magkaibigan din kayo, there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Is he ready to settle down?
Jake replied, “Am I ready? No, right now, parang wala pa sa bokabularyo ko yun.
“I have fallen in love with triathlon, that’s number one.
“Acting naman, I will always love; my family, of course.”
He added, “I know what love is and, right now, falling in love with someone else, parang ang hirap lang.
“Sa schedule, hindi kaya talaga.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and Cinema News spoke to Jake at siGE Takbo Anderson’s Road to LA Marathon event, held at McKinley West Park, Taguig City, last Sunday, March 5.
Now that he’s into triathlon, does Jake prefer a woman who’s also active in sports?
He said, “Okay din yun, pero di ko naman inoobliga sa babae na kung ano ang kaya kong gawin, kaya din niyang gawin.
“Hindi ko ioobliga yung tao.”
CHANEL IN BINIBINI. Jake was also asked about ex-girlfriend Chanel Olive Thomas joining Binibining Pilipinas 2017.
Chanel is not a newbie in beauty pageants. She joined Miss Earth Philippines in 2015, where she was crowned Miss Earth Philippines-Air.
Jake said, “Wow, congratulations to Chanel!
“Sumali na siya dati sa Miss Earth, ngayon sa Binibini. I hope she does well.”
Do they still talk to each other?
The actor said, “No, hindi na kami nag-uusap. Matagal na, ilang taon na.
“Obviously, so many good things is happening to her.
“Ang dami na ring nanggyari sa buhay ko. I had a relationship after that, so prehistoric.”
