The actress finally reveals the real status of her relationship with her fellow actor
Two years Bea Alonzo has upheld herself, rebuilt her life to an even stronger place than before and is slowly opening herself back to the idea not just of being loved, but loving again.
“I decided that I’m not going to be a prisoner of my past. I’m open to falling in love again. I am very careful when it comes to falling so deep again and trusting anybody, but I would like to say that I am open to being happy whether it’s romantically or in that aspect, romance or work. I am very open as you can see diba I am opening so many doors so I am open to a lot of possibilities,” Bea expresses.
When I ask her how much of her happiness can be contributed to romantic love, she speaks plainly and openly.
“I can’t tell you how much but yeah, I think I’m happy. I’m happy, but I’m also very excited. Ang hirap kasi kung dati doon umiikot yung mundo ko sa love, ngayon hindi na. I guess yung happiness ko, in general. Parang kung anong meron ako na romantic, ayokong yun lang. I’m very careful na parang kung hindi man siya matuloy, okay lang,” Bea proceeds with caution.
When I ask her if they’re exclusively dating, Bea answers even more thoughtfully.
“No. Wala pa kami. Ang hirap kasing sabihin, alam mo, parang in a way, as much as I don’t want to be a prisoner of my past, meron din akong parang, nahihiya ako sa mga tao na ‘I’m 33, I am dating.’ Hindi ko alam kung it will materialize into something else or like it would lead to something else but then, what if I fail again? I don’t want to keep failing in front of you guys, it’s embarrassing,” Bea adorably studies herself.
“But he’s a good guy,” Bea says of him.
I ask Bea how she is feeling about her life right now and her face lights up like the movie queen on the big screen that she is, a true self-made royalty meant to be seen not just by many but by all.
“Happy ako sa lahat ng nagyayari sa buhay ko. I’m also a bit terrified because of all these decisions, everything is new talaga. And to be honest, akala ko at 33 I would be married, but siguro kapag siguradong-sigurado na ako about the person, doon na ako mag-sha-share kasi parang nahihiya din ako to let everyone know that I’m with somebody again, iba-iba rin tayo ng timeline. And maybe I will also get there, but maybe not soon.
As a final question, I ask Bea if she is, in fact, in love right now. And this is her hopeful answer:
“That’s such a big word! I don’t know. But I’ll tell you when I get there…”
