KC Concepcion revealed that she was afraid to fall in love again after her messy breakup with matinee idol Piolo Pascual last year.
"There was a time na sobra talaga akong natatakot na ma-in love ulit (There was a time when I got very scared to fall in love again)," she was quoted as saying in an article by ABSCBNNews.com during an interview for Kris TV.
"Ang tagal kong mag-open up sa guys na parang lagi ko na lang friend nang friend lang, pero ‘pag medyo nararamdaman ko na na masugid [manligaw] inaaway ko talaga na ‘I’m not ready, I’m working, and it’s not the time. I don’t want to think about it.’ (It took me a long time to open up to guys, and I got to the point where I can only remain friends with them. When I feel like a guy is starting to court me, I’d fight him off and would tell him, ‘I’m not ready, I’m working, and it’s not the time. I don’t want to think about it.’)"
However, this self-imposed isolation also brought some good in KC’s life, as she revealed that there were two men who "stayed" with her. She mentions that one's a foreigner. "He’s pure-something else. But he loves the [Filipino] culture," she said. "He has never been here. Ayoko pa siyang papuntahin (I don’t want him to go here yet.).” The other man, KC said, is half-Filipino and had lived in another country for a while.
The actress also maintained that she doesn’t want to date another guy from showbiz, but admitted that she looks forward to being in love again. "So yes, I’m excited to fall in love again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again."
