Angelica was previously linked to Exes Baggage co-star and ex-boyfriend Carlo Aquino but has cut ties after he allegedly led her on

In recent months, the 32-year-old has been traveling a lot—either solo or with friends—visiting countries like New York, Japan, Dubai, Sweden, and New Zealand, and has made it her top priority to practice self-care. 

The new face of Silka papaya soap said: "Dati akala ni Angelica na kapag kailangan [niyagumandamagtitiis ka talaga. Hindi lang sa kagandahan, pati sa buhay. Ang dami mong titiisin para ma-achieve mo ito. Tiis-ganda ka para sa jowa mo. Gagawin mo ang lahat para sa jowa mo, so tinitiis mo sarili mo.

"Hindi mo na binibigyan ng attention ang sarili mo, hindi mo nabibigyan ng care. Siguro iyon yung dating Angelica."

At the press event, the actress-comedian admitted that for a while she felt hesitant to date again. "Parang nagkaroon ng time na natakot ako na paano kung nasira yung in-invest ko sa sarili ko?" she said. "Pero hindi na ako takot ngayon kasi alam ko na hindi pala siya pwedeng masira nang basta basta,

"I think ngayon, okay na [ako]. Masyado na akong marami na-invest na pagmamahal sa sarili ko and uumapaw na siya. Puwede ko na siya i-share sa iba,"

Her advice for 30-something women who are single

"Enjoy," Angelica told Female Network. But once you're ready for love, learn from your past. "'Wag mong kakalimutan lahat ng mga nangyari sayo. Lahat ng pain. Lahat ng pinagdaanan mo. 'Wag mo siyang kalimutan kasi usually diba tayo iniisip natin na 'nako, ang sakit sakit niyan ayoko na siyang maalala. Ayoko na siyang maiisip.' Pero pag [kinalimutan] natin iyon pwedeng maulit na masaktan tayo."

The actress continues, "[Dapat] mas alert ka na ngayon na 'ops, wait lang ahNangyari na 'to sa'kin. Alam ko na kung saan 'to papunta.' So, [yung] mga signs na ganun dapat [aware] tayo." She further advised not to ignore the dating red flags that make you think: 'Ay, hanggang dito lang 'to.'
