MANILA, Philippines – After his reported split with actress Shaina Magdayao a few months ago, actor John Lloyd Cruz is hopeful that his next romantic relationship would involve the woman he’s supposed to spend the rest of his life with.
Asked about his ideal age for marriage, the 28-year-old actor told Push.com.ph, “Ideally, five more years [pa].”
“And sana within that five years... I guess the next relationship would be a set up na for the next five years,” he added.
As early as now, Cruz said he is starting to secure his future family financially.
“‘Yung mga ini-invest ko ngayon, puwede mo ng tawagin na set up ko [for the future],” he said. “Parang sine-set ko pa lang ‘yung foundation ko as a person, as a man, as a would-be provider in the future because I’m not getting any younger.”
Despite his failed relationships, Cruz said he still believes in true love.
He explained: “Mahirap naman not to believe in true love ‘di ba? If you don’t believe in true love, parang ano pa ang puwede mong paniwalaan? Tama ba? Kaya nga [tayo pumapasok sa isang relasyon]. So yeah, I suppose I still believe in true love.”
In an earlier report, Cruz admitted that he and Magdayao are trying to work things out.
However, he clarified that they are "not officially" together.
"We are still trying to discover how to really take care of something. 'Yun lang ang pinakamagandang masasagot ko. We are still trying to discover the best way to take care of this thing [we have]," he said.
