MANILA, Philippines -- Three years after she separated from her husband, Senator Pia Cayetano said on Friday that she was ready to date again.
After her press conference at the Senate, Cayetano was asked about her love life. ?Wala e [I don?t have a love life],? she said. ?But after three years, I?d like to date again.?
?Papadala ko nga si Toby sa Italy para ihanap ako [I will send Toby to Italy to find me a lover],? she said jokingly, referring to Channel 4?s Toby Nebrida.
The lady senator has been legally separated from sportsman Ari Ben Sebastian, member of the First Philippine Mount Everest Expedition led by Heracleo Oracion and Erwin Emata.
She said she would like to date someone who?s also into sports. ?Kasi malamang ma bo-bore nga siya sa akin kung hindi e [He might be bored with me otherwise],? she said.
Cayetano said the time she spent in sports would be the time she would spend dating.
In a magazine interview, Cayetano has said that she divided her time between her Senate work, her sports, and her children.
