Mark Bautista on finding his soulmate: ‘Kung ano nagpapa-shine sa aking puso’

“Tinitignan ko na kung ano ba ‘yung mas compatible sa akin. Kung ano lang ‘yung nagpapa-shine sa aking puso, nagpapa-spark ‘yun lng, yun. Hindi naman sa hindi pa siya priority. Hindi pa, hindi pa siya dumating. Wow (laughs), showbiz na showbiz ‘yun.”

Kapuso singer Mark Bautista shared that finding his soulmate is not his priority right now.

In an exclusive interview with GMA Network, he said that whoever can make his heart skip a beat will definitely “the one” for him.



“Tinitignan ko na kung ano ba ‘yung mas compatible sa akin. Kung ano lang ‘yung nagpapa-shine sa aking puso, nagpapa-spark ‘yun lng, yun. Hindi naman sa hindi pa siya priority. Hindi pa, hindi pa siya dumating. Wow (laughs), showbiz na showbiz ‘yun.”

Furthermore, Mark has become more careful now in choosing a partner and said “Mas ano ako ngayon, mas maingat sa pagpili. Simple lang ‘yun, kung nagko-connect ako sa soul ng isang tao. Masaya naman ako ngayon.”
