MANILA, Philippines – Months after his breakup with actress Angelica Panganiban, actor-host Derek Ramsay is ready to move on to his next relationship, ideally with someone "just like Angel."

"[I would like] someone who's crazy as me," Ramsay told showbiz talk show "Ang Latest," when asked what qualities he looks for in a woman.
"Hindi ko ata mahahanap 'yon, pero someone close to that. [She has to be] simple, she has to be spontaneous," added Ramsay, who confirmed his split with Panganiban in May.
Pointing to Panganiban's similar qualities, the former Kapamilya actor said their relationship lasted six years in part owing to the comedienne's "values."
"I'm not saying na 'yung values na hinahanap ko wala kay Angel. Nandoon. Kaya nga ang tagal namin ni Angel, kaya lang may mga other factors why siguro hindi kami nagkatuluyan," said Ramsay of Panganiban, who is now rumored to be in a relationship with actor John Lloyd Cruz.
"That's definitely the priority for me -- someone who's old-fashioned, whose values are intact, just like Angel," Ramsay added.
Quizzed on Panganiban's rumored romance with Cruz, the hunk actor said: "Anything I say, even though it's straight from the heart, it gets me in trouble, so tatahimik nalang ako, hindi na ako magsasalita. Basta happy ako sa buhay ko."
In July, Ramsay addressed the same rumors, saying he only wishes his former girlfriend and Cruz the best.
“That’s good. If she finds something that I lack in John Lloyd, then I’m happy for them. I don’t know exactly what’s going on between Angel and John Lloyd. I don’t wanna make any assumptions. But if kung meron, I wish them the best,” Ramsay said at the time.
Panganiban and Cruz have yet to confirm the status of their relationship, but have hinted on a blooming romance between them.
