Heart Evangelista, 36, and Maja Salvador, 32, collaborate for the first time on YouTube.

Heart appeared on Maja's channel, and both ladies gave their own takes on love and relationships.

One question was: "Paano ba magmahal nang hindi nasasaktan?"

Heart and Maja agreed that "pain" is part of the equation.

The Kapuso actress said it is "imposible" to fall in love without feeling any kind of pain.

Maja added, "Alam mo, baka hindi ka nagmamahal kapag hindi ka nasaktan. Kasi ang love, kakambal niyan ay pain.

"May nabasa nga ako na pipiliin mo kung sino iyong taong worth it para sa mga pain na pagdadaanan mo."

Heart then asked Maja if she ever experienced that kind of pain.

Maja replied, "Totoo iyong sinasabi nila na parang akala mo okay na love ka, ganyan, and then iyon pa iyong—hindi naman traydor. Iyong iiwan ka sa ere. Parang pak! Career first, ganoon.

"Pero kasi, siguro bumalik lang din sa akin kasi di ba ganoon din ginawa ko kay Rambo."

Rambo Nuñez is Maja's current boyfriend. This is the second time that the couple got together.

The first time they fell in love with each other was in 2010.

Maja continued, recalling that time: "Twenty-one years old ako noon. Pero siyempre iba tayo mag-love. Todo. Pero mas nangibabaw iyong career ko during that time because, siyempre, dati ang hirap kung sino love team mo, iyon dapat.

"Siyempre hindi ko pa mapush si Rambo that time."

Heart then remembered the time she was 21, and quipped: "Kasi ayaw mo matulad kay Heart Evangelista noh? Nung twenty-one years old ako, pinagpalit ang lahat para sa love. Ang hirap, ang hirap."

Around that time, which was in 2006, Heart was in a relationship with Jericho Rosales. The two actors met on the set of the ABS-CBN series Panday in 2005. They broke up in 2008.

Heart continued in the vlog: "Mahirap talaga. Ako, kasama na iyon doon. But, at the same time, hindi lang naman siya sakit. Masaya din siya...

"Masakit siya because may mga kailangan kang aralin sa sarili mo na, 'Babaguhin ko ba ito? Kaya ko ba i-take ito?' Kumbaga, barometer ang love. 'Ano ba, tama ba ito sa akin?' Doon mo nakikilala at nadedevelop iyong character mo as a person.

"Ibang klase din nagagawa ng love sa life, so whether it was good or if it was bad, parang all is fair in love and war."

Maja chimed in, "Love wins."

To which Heart paraphrased as: "Love for yourself wins."

She continued, "At the end of the day kasi kung hindi ko napagdaanan lahat ng pinagdaanan ko, baka hindi rin ako worthy makasama iyong asawa ko ngayon. It all makes sense in the end."

Maja added, "Kailangan natin iyang experiences sa life dahil diyan tayo maggo-grow. Okay lang. Magmahal ka lang at masasaktan ka, okay lang iyon. Basta love yourself before and after."
