Francine Diaz is finally ready to accept suitors now that she's officially an adult at 18 years old. Still, finding her first-ever boyfriend is the least of her priorities for now.

"I know my responsibilities. I know my priorities in life. Even if may i-date man akong guy, ang magiging number-one priority ko pa rin is my family and my career," Francine shared in Wil Dasovich's SuperHuman podcast on Spotify.

"Right now, I feel like dating for me, pampaganda ng skin. 'Pag kinikilig ka, you're glowing kasi and nag-bu-blush ka," she added half-jokingly.

When Wil asked her to describe her ideal type, she claimed that she plans to date an older guy who is already financially capable and mentally stable. "Gusto ko talaga older sa'kin kasi gusto kong may natututunan ako, gusto ko tinuturuan ako pero hindi naman in a way na parang ginagawa akong tanga," she shared. "Gusto ko ng someone na mature and alam niya kung ano ginagawa niya. Someone who's stable."


In the same vein, Francine confessed that she isn't really the type to date someone just because she's curious or bored. She would much rather prefer to invest in a long-term and low-key relationship, which is another reason why she's in no rush to commit to someone during her teen years.

"I think kung magkakaroon naman [ako ng boyfriend], [gusto ko] private but low-key. Siguro pag nasa tamang age na ako, 'yung alam nila but not too much. Kasi parang feeling ko ang hirap kapag masyadong maraming involved sa relationship niyo," she stated.

"Sa'kin lang, kung magbo-boyfriend ako, gusto ko pang matagalan na. Ayoko yung parang nag-experiment lang kami na uy, anong feeling kapag may boyfriend ka or girlfriend ka?" she explained. "Gusto ko to be with someone na mag-go-grow kami together, na tutulungan niya akong mag-grow."

Although Francine is currently happy and single, she has been previously linked to Bola Bola actor Akira Morishita, Kadenang Ginto Star Kyle Echarri, and most recently, Dirty Linen leading man Seth Fedelin.
