MANILA—"Wait lang kayo dahil dadating din talaga siya," was what Alex Gonzaga, who for a time was known as a "forever third wheel" to the relationship of her sister Toni Gonzaga and director Paul Soriano, told her fans on Instagram who are single.
She dedicated her post on Wednesday to those growing impatient over not having a boyfriend or a girlfriend, saying: "Para sa lahat ito ng Single at nagsasawa na mag-antay ng jowa."
"Buong 20's ko lagi AKO LANG ang single sa family and barkada ko. Nung kinasal ang ate may mga nagtatanong na 'Ikaw, Kailan ka naman ikakasal?'" she shared.
She quickly added: "Gusto ko sagutin TEKA lang naman wala pa nga tumagal na jowa!! At sa tagal kong hinintay kung kailan matatapos ang pagiging third wheel ko dahil sawa na rin ako mainggit at sagutin ang tanong na 'Wala ka parin boyfriend!?' Finally dumating din!"
It was back in January 2017 when Alex first revealed her relationship with Mikee Morada. At the time, Morada said one of the reasons he was drawn to Alex was her upbringing, citing the family values she and her sister have been vocal of having learned from their parents.
She wrote the post to promote her entry to this year's Himig Handog songwriting contest, which she recorded with Toni. It's titled "Please Lang" and was written by Michael Angelo Aplacador.
