Yna has been single for more than a year after being put off men who refuse to look beyond her looks, and she fears many just date her as she looks like Riri.
"I've been single for about a year, but I would never put myself in a relationship with someone who sees me as 'Rihanna' and not 'Yna."
"When I talk to someone and hear 'Rihanna' too many times [when we're hanging out], I give up [on them] because I can't determine if the person fantasizes about Rihanna or if they really want to know me. That's why I'm single. I have been mistaken for Rihanna quite a lot. This happens to me usually when I'm in tourist places.I remember a woman saw me and was being shy.
She assumed I spoke English and spoke to me to ask if she could take a picture, and I agreed. It wasn't the first time. 'But then she asked me, 'Are you really Rihanna?' with a face full of joy.I felt like I was breaking her heart by telling her no, but I find it pretty funny to be in these situations."
