How to be a great boyfriend, according to Daniel Padilla

It takes two people to make a relationship work. It requires effort from both parties involved. Making an effort is no small thing for Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. The reel-and-real life couple has remained strong together for 8 years because of their continuous desire to make their love last.

Here, we listed down five secrets to make your relationship last like Kathniel's from the perspective of Daniel:

1. Learn to apologize

"Kapag mali ko, ako pa rin naman talaga [ang nag-a-apologize],” Daniel said during the press conference of their 2017 film “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

“Dapat naman talaga ako. Kapag mali ko, ako pa rin naman talaga. Kahit mali mo [Kathryn] ako pa rin,” he joked.

“Pero ganoon talaga, eh. Wala namang perpektong relasyon na hindi kayo nag-aaway. And parang kailangan mong pagdaanan ‘yun para mas makilala niyo pa ang isa’t isa lalo, para mas malaman niyo pa kung gaano niyo kamahal ang isa’t isa. And pagsubok ‘yan na kailangan muna lagpasan para lalo kayo mag-grow.”

 

2. Put your pride on the backseat

Being prideful in a relationship is a big no-no, according to Daniel.

“Huwag mainitin ang ulo kasi hindi madadaan ang mga usapan sa galit. Laging dapat klaro ka, hindi pwedeng ang taas mo agad lagi. ‘Yun ang nakita kong problema ko noon kapag nag-aaway kami ni Kathryn,” he said.

“Kapag mas malakas ang boses ko, baka mas manalo ako. Parang may ganoon, na para sa akin ngayon, na-realize ko na mali pala ‘yung ganoon. Hindi dapat ganoon,” he added.

3. Don't be afraid of growth

During the May 31 episode of “I Feel U,” Daniel likened a relationship to a plant that needs to be nurtured for it to grow.

“Marami na kaming away ni Kathryn na talagang away din talaga. Sa parte ko, meron na akong pagkakataon ko, nang tumalikod at umalis. Pero tatalikod man ako, after five minutes, babalik din ako,” he said.

“Ang love kasi sa akin, kailangan ko siyang alagaan. You have to let it grow. Para siyang halaman, kailangan mo siyang mahalin. Hindi ko siya kayang talikuran at baka wala na akong makuhang pag-ibig na ganito ulit,” he added.

 

4. Push each other to be better

Keep things exciting by constantly pushing each other to be better, as individuals and as partners. This is Daniel's secret to making his relationship with Kathryn evolve for the better.

“Natutunan ko lang din 'yan kay Kathryn, how to level up your relationship,” he said in an interview on "Magandang Buhay."

“Hindi siya pwedeng plateau, eh. Hindi siya pwedeng kung ano ang nakasanayan paulit-ulit gagawin. Kasi both parties mabo-bore eh. Kailangan mong magbigay ng effort every time. Ganoon si Kathryn sa'kin.”

 

5. When you love someone, you never give up on them

Daniel admitted during a press conference for “The Hows of Us” in 2018 that he wanted to give up on their relationship several times but always found a reason not to.

“Maraming beses na tinanong kung, 'Gusto mo pa ba?’ and ‘Kaya mo pa ba ‘to?’ Lagi akong bumabalik sa ‘Bakit ko nga ba minahal ang taong to?’ Kasi malamang nag-aaway kayo ngayon, pero siyempre kailangan mong tingnan ‘yung mas malalim sa problema na ‘to. Maaaring nagkakaproblema lang tayo ngayon pero saan ba tayo nanggaling at nasaan na ba tayo ngayon. Laging ganoon,” he said.
