MANILA, Philippines – Over a month since she confirmed the end of her relationship with actor Matteo Guidicelli, Kapamilya actress Maja Salvador said she is "open" to entertaining suitors anew.

"Ngayon wala pa [namang nanliligaw]. Kung mayroon naman, magiging open ako. Hindi ko naman ipagdadamot 'yun," Salvador told reporters on Friday, on the sidelines of her pictorial for the upcoming drama series "Ina, Kapatid, Anak."
In early August, Salvador confirmed that she is indeed "single" after reports surfaced of her supposed rift with Guidicelli. The actress' "tweets" on heartbreak on micro-blogging site Twitter only fueled speculations that their relationship has come to an end.
For his part, Guidicelli has also confirmed their breakup, but maintained that he and Salvador remains good friends.
"I'm very okay being single," Salvador said, adding in jest, "Being single talaga -- eh nakakaganda lalo. Kasi pag committed ka kasi 'di ba, may mga hindi ka nagagawang bagay-bagay."
"Ngayon mas nakakapag-me-time, mas na de-date ko 'yung sarili ko na ako lang," she added.
Only a week earlier, Salvador had her "me-time" at the annual Star Magic Ball, where she walked the red carpet sans date.
At the same event, Guidicelli was seen shaking hands with actor Coco Martin, with whom he had a brawl over Salvador during the after-party of last year's Star Magic Ball.
During her relationship with Guidicelli, Salvador was paired onscreen with Martin in the defunct drama series "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin."
Although they have publicly expressed regret over the incident, last Saturday was the first time the Kapamilya actors were seen being friendly in person since the controversial fistfight.
"Actually, silang dalawa talaga 'yun eh," Salvador said of the public reconciliation.
"Kahit naman na okay ako with Matteo, okay ako with Coco, silang dalawa 'yung makakaayos talaga kung ano 'yung nangyari, kasi hindi naman ako kasali dun sa kung ano man 'yung nangyari. I'm happy for the both of them, and 'di ba, okay na nagkaayos sila," she said.
