Game changer. These words have been used so many times to refer to a girl who changes a guy's perspective when it comes to dating and relationships. Even Till I Met You star JC Santos has said it before in interviews; that his girlfriend, fellow theater actor Teetin Villanueva is his game changer when it comes to relationships. So we couldn't help but wonder about how and if people really know when they've finally met their match in romantic relationships.

During our shoot with JC, we got really kilig every time he'd react whenever we mention or talk about his relationship with Teetin. He clearly is head-over-heels in love with her. JC's voice softens when he talks about their love story and he almost giggles when he recalls how he made her say yes. So we just had to ask him about this whole game changer thing. Do guys really know when they've finally met the girl who'll change how they view relationships? Here's what he has to say about this topic.


"I think, yes. Nagkaroon ako ng bad experience noong Christmas of 2012. Kailangan na naming maghiwalay ng girlfriend ko at that time kasi burned out na rin ako sa theme park work. But it's just me, ha? It's not a bad job. Marami lang talaga akong gustong gawin. Sanay kasi akong palipat-lipat," he tells us.

"Napanood ko si Teetin sa Dulaang UP production ng Noli Me Tangere. Crush ko na s'ya noon. First time ko s'yang nakausap noong pauwi na akong Pilipinas, from 11PM to 3AM. Ang dami pa naming gustong pag-usapan at ayaw pa naming tumigil pero kailangan ko nang matulog. Tapos noong umuwi ako, nakilala ko s'ya pero sinusungitan n'ya ako. Doon ko na-realize na gusto ko pala s'ya, na gusto kong may hinahabol na girl. First time kong manligaw at hanggang ngayon, parang nililigawan ko pa rin s'ya. Actually, wala kaming official date kasi kailangan naming maghiwalay dahil aalis ako papuntang New York. Game changer ko si Teetin kasi s'ya 'yung unang babaeng nagsungit sa akin tapos gustung-gusto ko."

So can he say that guys know if they've finally met their game changers?

"I think, oo, malalaman ng guy. Mahirap magsalita for everyone, pero I think oo, malalaman nilang eto na," he explains. "Ako kasi alam ko na.


"Na-realize kong okay na ako kay Teetin, coming from a bad relationship. S'ya, inaalagaan n'ya akoHindi ko alam kung totoo for everyone, pero posibleng alam na nila 'yun."
