Even without a real-life sweetheart to inspire her with her role as the besotted fiancée of Armando Solis in I Love Betty La Fea, Megan Young claimed that she’s blissfully single for two years already. "Kung gaano maging masaya in a relationship, ganun din kasaya maging single. Now, I’m enjoying being single kasi I get to meet new people, ganyan. At saka mas nag-fofocus kasi ako sa work at sa school. ‘Pag wala akong work nagsu-school ako in between, para at least natatapos ko and nothing distracts me," confided the 18-year-old actress to ABS-CBN.com.
Although she is open to dating, and eventually having a relationship, Megan wants to make sure that the guy she would be committing to is someone worth all her time and the pain that often begets love. "Kasi alam mo ba, dati nung may boyfriend ako, grabe, kasi ang hirap. Kasi ‘pag nag-aaway kayo, hindi ka nakakapag-review hindi ka nakakabasa ng script mo… Minsan kailangan mo maging masaya sa script pero malungkot kasi nagkakaproblema kayo eh. So at least ‘pag single ka, wala ka masyadong iisipin," she explained.
Even after being in a relationship twice in the past, Megan quipped that she could hardly remember what it’s like to fall in love. When asked if she is possessive like her character Marcella, she started to say no then suddenly recalled an argument with her ex. "One time sabi ko, ‘Nasaan ka? Ba’t nand’yan ka? Ang layo-layo n’yan? Meron namang...’ which is alam kong mali on my part. Kaya siguro nagka-rift din," she confessed. However, she claimed that she had grown mature since then. "Mas ready na ‘ko ngayon. Hindi lang dahil sa experience ko pati na din sa experience ng mga friends ko. So medyo alam ko na yung medyo hindi dapat ko gawin at saka dapat kong gawin."
Apart from her thoughts on love and romance, ABS-CBN.com discovered more things about Megan, such as her simple fashion sense contrary to her kikay fashionista image on TV. "Actually, hindi ako mahilig mag-heels, ngayon lang dahil nagte-taping ako. Pero ‘pag lumalabas ako, I feel more comfortable ‘pag naka-flats or kapag naka-sneakers lang—super casual. ‘Pag makikita mo ko parang, ‘Uy ang simple niya.’ Ganun lagi yung reaction ng mga tao. I mean, masyado na akong nagpapaka-glamour sa work. So can't I just be normal for a bit? Minsan din naman I wanna be like everyone else," she said.
A self-confessed homebody, Megan revealed that when she does go out to the mall with her younger sister Lauren, it’s only to indulge the child in her. "As in nagpapakabata lang kami. Okay lang kahit sabihin mong isip-bata ako, okay lang, wala akong pakialam. I believe that we have to go back to our youth sometimes. It keeps me refreshed. Ganun yung feeling ko kapag no inhibitions." In fact, playing various games in Time Zone is her and Lauren’s favourite pastime, much to other people’s surprise. "Nung una, siyempre nasha-shock sila. Tapos minsan nagkikita pa kami ng friends ko from the other network. Pero nasanay na sila kasi meron kaming laging pinupuntahan na mall," she added.
In the meantime, people are about to see the serious facet of Megan Young as I Love Betty La Fea airs on September 9. "Abangan nila ang pagiging mataray ko. Kasi iba talaga. Sobrang sarap ng feeling na kasama ako sa isang malaking-malaking production. So kailangan kong galingan talaga at ipakita na tama na pinili nila ako. Ayoko kasi na ma-stuck lang sa teenybopper roles ‘cause I’m getting older din naman," she concluded.
