What these crushable athletes love about being single
Isa Molde, Melissa Gohing, JohnVic de Guzman, and some more—what do they have in common aside from being power players? Yep, that’s right, making "hugot" this Valentine’s Day.

We may not be as fit as them but we’d like to think our hardworking athletes are as human as we are. They laugh, cry, shop, watch movies, post selfies, drink (sometimes), and all. If we average people fall in love, so do they. If we encounter heartbreaks, so do frickin’ they. If there are some of us who are (still) loveless on this Day of Love, some athletes also share the same degree of loneliness, misery, self-diagnosed depression—you get it. And, yes, even the best-looking of 'em. This Valentine’s Day, we got to ask some of them on why having zero love life doesn’t necessarily mean being loveless. And if ever they had the time and space for someone to celebrate the same occasion with, who would that special person be?
