This may come as a surprise to some but young actress Francine Diaz is a certified NBSB!
In an interview with Karen Davila uploaded on YouTube on January 29, the “Bola Bola” star confirmed that she has yet to be involved in a romantic relationship.
When the broadcast journalist directly asked Francine if she’s ever had a boyfriend, the 18-year-old actress smilingly shook her head before saying she’s “NBSB” which stands for No Boyfriend Since Birth.
According to Francine, nobody has ever tried to court her: "Wala po, promise po. Ang daming hindi naniniwala ‘pag sinasabi kong wala pang nanliligaw. Wala po talaga.”
"Wala rin naman pong umaamin kaya wala rin po akong reason para mag-boyfriend,” she added.
Francine did confess that she actually wants to experience being in love while she’s in her teens, but the opportunity hasn’t come knocking on her door just yet.
"Syempre gusto ko rin pong ma-experience kasi parang feeling ko iba rin ‘yung love na mabibigay ko sa teenage years ko sa pagka-adult na ako, eh wala eh, so career,” she said.
Francine quipped, “Kung wala, eh ‘di career. Mas may pera pa ako.”
In all seriousness, Francine is not eyeing a specific person whom she’d like to be paired up with in a love team.
"Ako po, siguro kahit sino basta mabait siya. Hindi naman po ako talaga naghahanap agad ng bagong ka-love team. Basta po ‘yung makakasundo ko, at syempre respect sa aming lahat, sa amin nila mama, pati sa’kin,” Francine described her ideal on-screen partner.
By the end of the interview, Francine offered a piece of advice to young people like her when it comes to choosing a romantic partner: “Mas ingatan natin ‘yung sarili natin. I-save natin ‘yung self natin sa mas better na tao sa life natin.”
