Erich Gonzales on finding new love: "Ang puso naman, hindi 'yan napapagod magmahal. Kelangan lang ibigay mo siya sa taong karapat-dapat."


Erich Gonzales is in no rush to enter a new relationship.

She met her suitor Mateo Lorenzo in April 2017, and had already introduced him to her family.

At her launch as the endorser of MySlim, the Kapamilya star told the press, “Oo, na-meet na nila nung andito sina Mama, sina kuya sa Davao."

Despite this, she said that she wants to take her time when it comes to matters of the heart.

Erich continued, "Siguro, priorities talaga kasi siyempre.

"I don’t wanna be unfair naman sa taong mamahalin ko sa future, coz di ba, kailangan nandiyan ka sa mga panahong kailangan ka rin niya? 

“And ngayon talaga, work talaga yung una sa listahan natin.

"O, di ba, pag sinabing, ‘O, 'eto taping, mawawala ka for like one week straight, di ba?

"So siyempre, kailangan may oras ako para sa taong ‘yon.

"And now, hindi natin masabi, kasi with my work, iba-iba yung oras, so yun.”

But Erich reiterated that whenever she has the time and he’s also free, they do meet up.

She said, “We go out naman. 

"Pag alam niya na libre ako ngayong araw na ito.

"Siya mismo yung gagawa ng paraan to see me.

"And siyempre di ba yung effort nung tao, nakikita naman natin, so bakit tayo magmamaganda na, 'Ayoko,' ganyan.

“Wala naman pong masama dun kasi pareho naman kaming single.

“And I told him naman like right now talaga, committed ako with my show, with my work.

“But then, when the time comes na nandiyan pa rin siya, and ready na to commit, why not? Sana God-willing."

LESSONS LEARNED. Has she and her former boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga ever talked after their last trip in February 2017?

"Wala, walang chance,” the 27-year-old actress answered hesitantly.  

"Siguro I’d rather not, I don’t wanna be plastic naman.

"Wag na lang siguro.”

The important thing is both of them have moved on. 

Daniel is now in a relationship with Polish model Karolina Pisarek.

For her part, Erich has a lot of takeaways from their breakup.

She proudly admitted, "Marami na tayong natutunan.

"Alam mo iyan, mga lessons learned, and yun yung baon-baon natin sa buhay araw-araw, so ‘yon.

"Siyempre natuto na tayo.”

As cliché as it may sound, do not give your all when you fall in love.

She stressed, "Well, una talaga sa lahat is you have to guard your heart above anything else.

"Kasi once na hinayaan mo yung puso mo na mag-open, alam mo ‘yon? 

"Magtutuluy-tuloy na kasi ‘yan, so kailangan and it’s very important din talaga na may mga boundaries ka sa sarili mo, di ba? 

“Okay, you love the person pero siyempre, 'wag mong kalimutan na mahalin din ang sarili mo.

"'Wag mong kalimutan yung sarili mo kahit nahanap mo na yung magiging partner mo.

“Kelangan balanced pala talaga, heart and mind."

The "getting to know each other” stage is important.  

She added, “Kailangan talaga bago pumasok sa relasyon, kelangan po, kilalanin niyo muna yung isa’t isa.

"Hindi enough na, ‘Okay, 'eto na.’

"Kailangan kilalanin na mabuti ang isang tao.

"Kasi what if ma-discover, may ma-discover kami sa isa’t isa? ‘Ay, hindi pala ito okay.’

"Mabuti na ngayon pa lang…"

Do not waste time and effort on a relationship that will not work.

If Erich will have her way, she doesn’t like “palit-palit."

The actress elaborated, "Diyos ko, ever since naman po, pag nasa isang relasyon tayo, gusto natin yun na talaga, di ba?

"Well, I’m just speaking for myself po.

"Ini-imagine lang natin or makikita na natin, sana siya na kasama natin sa future.

"But then, if things don’t work out, life talaga, di ba.. Hindi naman po natin hawak yung mga ganyang bagay."

Choose the right man.

"Ang puso naman, hindi ‘yan napapagod magmahal. Kelangan lang ibigay mo siya sa taong karapat-dapat," she emphasized.

MOVING FORWARD. Does she want the next guy to be showbiz or non-showbiz?

Erich disclosed, "Sa totoo lang, hindi naman po natin natuturuan yung puso natin talaga na ito yung piliin mo, ito siya or ganyan.

"It just happens. 

"Pero kung ako may option talaga, or kung may ano ako, siyempre gusto natin private na lang para ako na lang yung nasa showbiz.

"And para may ibang life rin tayo outside showbiz, di ba?

"Marami kayong mapag-uusapan, hindi lang puro nasa showbiz.

"Marami kayong matututunan sa isa’t isa.”

What if he has something against daring projects?

"I think kahit naman po sino, like, for example, if in the future, yung magiging partner ko, kailangan respetuhin niya yung trabaho ko, and ito po talaga yung gusto kong gawin.

"But at the end of the day, it’s really my decision naman. Ako naman ‘to, di ba? So, support lang siguro. 

"And konting mga... ano bang tawag do’n? Paalala or what? Guidance?

"But it’s really up to me."

And in case something good comes out of her friendship with Mateo, she assured the press, "I’ll let you guys know kung meron nang klaro.

"Pag clear na clear na talaga."
