John Prats: Isabel Oli is the one-A A +A
Saturday, February 23, 2013
ACTOR John Prats says Kapuso actress Isabel Oli is "the one".
In an interview with John during the "Banana Nite" launch, he revealed that last December, he completed the nine mornings, quit smoking and prayed really hard to meet the woman destined for him.
John said this is something new to him because he really let God do all the work.
"I never prayed for my love life. Pag nagdadasal ako laging about my family, my career, for health. Hiniling ko talaga siya. Sabi ko 'Lord, surprise me next year'. I didn't expect na this early, na ipapakilala sa akin si Isabel."
The actor added that after his last relationship, he decided not to focus on dating anymore. He also shared that his greatest fear is to grow old alone.
"I realized na baka I was really meant to be single forever and just to have girlfriends. Frustrated talaga ako kasi parang how come yung past relationships ko hindi nag work. Is it me? It's frustrating and tiring."
It was his sister, actress Camille Prats, who played the matchmaker between him and Isabel. Camille was also the one who gave Isabel's number to John.
"Tinext ko siya the day after pa ibigay sa akin ni Cams yung number niya. Then after 30 minutes pa siya nagreply. Parusa yun ha," he equips.
John said Isabel was hesitant to go on a date with him because of his playboy image, but he told her to just have one dinner and get to know him on a personal level.
The actor said he knew Isabel is "the one" when he personally met her second week of January.
"Inaangkin ko na. Mararamdaman mo pala talaga yun. With my past kasi laging may fear, ngayon nawala talaga lahat. Nawala yung lahat ng takot ko sa relasyon. Kahit di kami magkasama at di kami magka-text, alam ko na andyan lang siya."
John added that they share a lot of things in common and they were able to discuss things like Isabel wanting to be fulltime housewife. He appreciates the actress' frankness and her zest for life.
When asked what's so different with Isabel, he replied with a big smile plastered on his face: "Sincere yung kabaitan. Hindi dahil nag start pa lang kayo or nasa getting to know you stage. She's very sweet na hindi niya alam. Basta iba siya."
The two are now exclusively dating. ( Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
