MANILA – Yam Concepcion has no plans of leaving her career even after she gets married in case her longtime non-showbiz boyfriend proposes to her.
In an interview with Ruffa Gutierrez for “Love Thy Chika,” Concepcion said her boyfriend has to accept that acting is her passion.
“Of course, definitely I will say yes [if he proposes to me now]. Pero ang iwanan ang nagpapasaya sa akin, ang passion ko which is pag-arte, kung mahal niya talaga ako, wala dapat choice. He doesn’t have to give me that choice,” she said.
Nonetheless, the “Love Thy Woman” actress admits she sees herself ending up with her boyfriend, who is based in San Francisco.
Now into their fifth year as a couple, Concepcion said they make their relationship work through constant communication and trust.
“'Yung trust na 'yan, it wasn’t overnight. A lot of work talaga. It took us years and we’ve been through so much and I feel like we are stronger now. I feel that we are unbreakable,” she said.
“Imagine five years and LDR? Ang hirap noon. Hanggang ngayon okay pa rin naman kami. In love pa rin kami sa isa’t isa,” she added.
When asked to describe herself as a girlfriend, Concepcion said: “Buong buo. I can only give what I can. I am very loyal.”
She said she’s also fortunate that her partner is not the jealous type.
“Hindi naman. Okay naman si Miguel. He’s very secured as a person,” she said.
