Things to do in New York on a budget...

 It's New Years Eve today! Happy almost New Year!

Dear David,
I live in New York. What are your suggestions for the things I might do in in the New Year to expand my life and make it more interesting? I don't have a lot of money.
~Going For It

Dear Going For It,
Number one, get stronger. Even if it's just walking around the block a couple of times everyday, or running outside if you can. Use the stairs everywhere possible. Get stronger all the time. You'll need it as your life gets more interesting!

How about meditating? I do twenty minutes every morning and it kind of balances you and prepares you for the day.

How about an adult education class? Particularly if you want to meet some new people. Something like Spanish, cooking or whatever interests you.

And something to do outside of New York ~ if you get a little money take a trip to South America. I LOVE Montevideo, Uruguay. I live there part of the year. And Buenos Aires, Argentina is just across the river ~ a very glamorous city. You could go to Rio do Janeiro, the most beautiful city in the world in my opinion. It's not really dangerous and you'll get a whole new point of view on the world. You'll start seeing New York in a new way.

Fashion Fashion ~ your color horoscope

Your fashion direction is going to be horoscope color predictions according to my Spanish language horoscope magazine (that I have translated for you) ~ here it goes for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo and Virgo:

Aries   March 23-April 23
Red should be the favorite color of Aries. It represents passion, force and war. A lot of Aries have been divorced or broken off relationships recently. Love has been difficult although fortunately getting back together has been easy and will be this year. Especially important in the last months of this year is to wear red to make things go more easily.

Taurus   April 23-May 23
For 2013 you want to keep your social life and romances harmon you must wear green. The color of peace and stability. It is especially good for those prone to depression. Green is very good for Taurus as it slows down the movement of your agitated personality. Do not limit yourself to clothes only but also wear green for accessories and casual wear, sleepwear and undergarments.

Gemini  May 23-June 23
The color that will bring excitement to Geminis is yellow. In the first 6 months of the year, yellow will help Geminis get organized. And it not only brings you luck but enthusiasm. From July to December you should wear gray and silver to bring you good fortune if your are involved in a business transaction or relationship.

Cancer  June 23-July 23
In 2013 your colors will be light green, gray and yellow. The green will keep you connected to nature. It will inspire feelings of tranquility and create a feeling of control, calm and interior peace. For those reasons green will help you when you most confront difficult situations. In the last three months of the year your colors are yellow and gray.

Leo  July 23-August 23
Orange and yellow will be the colors for Leo in 2013. Across the board, do not confide your projects or problems to your friends. the olor that will help you through all the things coming up is orange. People of this sign tend to be a little anxious and nervous. Orange will help you think about things and remain calm.

Virgo  August 23-September 23
The colors for those born under this signs in 2013 are bright green and emerald. Also in this year Virgos should wear dark gray or black when having a work interview or important meeting. If you are looking for a partner don't forget to wear bright colors which will bring you freshness and feelings of being stable.

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Sean Connery

My Handsomest Man in the World is from the past ~ Sean Connery. The still reigning superior James Bond. Dreamy...

What happened? Self confident men like that just don't seem to be around anymore...

Dear David,
What was your Christmas gift to yourself?
~Just Askin'

Dear Just Askin',
I rarely get an inquiry about myself. My gift is that I am in Montevideo, Uruguay seeing the man who is more important to me than anyone or anything else in the world. More important that I am to myself. A big and wonderful gift. I remind myself everyday of this.

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Merry Christmas!

No messages today ~ just wishing you a very Merry Christmas! This year is about over. Did you do ok? It's been tough but I'll bet you did, and before next Christmas it will be even better! Lots of affection to you all.

Help! I love my lover more than he loves me

Dear David,
I think that I love my lover more than he loves me. It makes me a little sad.
~Lorne Love

Dear Lorne Love,
Please don't be sad. Every relationship involves the lover and the loved one. Even if it's 51% and 49% it's never even. The Loved One always says, "No no, we're very equal." the Lover won't even discuss it. Not matter. You are the one experiencing all the feelings, the excitement, the romance. And life is all about feelings and experience, nothing else. Your lover may not be feeling as much but also remember as time goes by sometimes the roles flip. You may be the loved one some day! Hang in there.

Dirty mouth?

Sorry folks! I just came back from New York and somehow in the hurly burly I thought I had given my blog to the blog mistress, but I forgot! Sorry for all the posts on my facebook feed today, we will be back to normal next week my darlings!


Dear David,
I don't like to kiss. Is that unusual? It seems so unsanitary. Tell me!

Dear Mouthy,
Do you give blowjobs? I find this seems to be a gay guy thing - "I don't kiss but..."

The French writer Jean Cocteau kissed his poodle and a friend said, "Oh, don't do that. Who knows where that little mouth has been!" Cocteau replied, " I think the same thing every time I see you kiss your mother."

I wouldn't worry about the unsanitary part. Try just kissing his neck. Chew his ear. Men like that. You might move on to his mouth.

Fashion Thursday ~ Your Fashion Horoscope for 2013!

Instead of giving fashion advice today I am going to look into this terrific Spanish language horoscope magazine I bought recently. Based on your sign, the horoscopes are what colors you should wear for the year and why. Let's start with the first 3 of the year, and stay tuned next week for more. I am a Capricorn in case you were wondering!

Capricorn: Dec. 23-Jan. 23, 2013
Your colors are black and gray. Particularly if you are planning a business venture, buying a car or a house or you are realizing some major project. These colors will give you vitality. If you're married wear some pink, it will make your life more harmonious.

Aquarius: Jan 23-Feb. 23, 2013
Plan to wear the colors yellow, light blue and aqua. You may add red if you are looking for excitement. After the mid year, if you have been wearing yellow you will achieve you plans for prosperity and will be able to experiment very well with innovative ideas.

Pisces: Feb. 23-Mar. 23, 2013
For good results in 2013 you fish signs should wear violet, blue and purple. If you have not been able to wrap up a project, you should also wear silver. Silver is the color that will bring you luck with all aspects of your life this year. This year you van expect legal problems. If you hang to avoid them swath yourself in aquamarine and dark blue. And unusual combination but don't blame me if you don't do it a get sued!

Handsomest Man in the World ~ William Levy

How about William Levy for the Handsomest Man in the World this week? We have featured him before - and he is just that dreamy to feature again. Please watch this hilarious commercial with him in it. I wish I was made out of chocolate!

How do you feel about...

Dear David,
I am gay and had a recent telephone call from my sister. Her husband has gained a lot of weight and doesn't feel like having sex with him. What did I think about about her just not doing it anymore? I told her you never need to have sex if you don't feel like it. It's called the "mercy f#*k" and I'm all against it. In my opinion nothing is worse than having sex when you don't feel like it.

But when I discussed this with my older brother (who is straight), he objected and said I should have never told her that. I thought immediately of his poor wife. The idea of sex being a duty makes me shudder. What do you think?
~Sex U. Al

Dear Al,
I 100% agree with you. With any couple - gay or straight - you owe it to the other person to remain f#*kable. If you can't be bothered, how different is that than just paying someone to have sex. Over time it has to ruin romance and that's a terrible thing to have happen in your life.

Part Time Lovers & Rent Boy the Musical!

Dear David,
My lover lives in Detroit. I live in New York. We both have relatively high level jobs on our professions and it would be difficult for either of us to find similar job in each other's cities. This has been going on for three years. I go to Detriot alternate weekends. He comes to New York alternately, too and we spend our vacations and holidays together, of course.

I love him more and more and want very much to live with him all the time. What shall I do?
~Part-Time Lover

Dear Part-Time Lover,
I don't think you are a part-time lover at all. Much as you don't want to hear this, your not living together is prolonging the romance. I have two rules for romance:
1. Don't go in the bathroom together
2. Never Eat In

You are preserving a lot of mystery and magic and I like that. Beofre long destiny will stp in and you will both move to Dallas or something like that. But don't rush it. A hard to handle romance makes it more and more valuable all the time. I'll be you're having a lot of sex when you get together - probably a lot more than if you had been living together this whole time!

My Dear Blogettes, I am very excited to announce my new show! I am going to New York in March 2013 with a revision of our show "Escorts" (based on my book) which is now called "Rent Boy the Musical." Our slogan is "Everyone on stage is for sale." Please visit for more information & for more info about casting!

Fashion ~ beard or no beard, that is the question...

My fashion statement this week is brief. I have never addressed the subject of half shaved looks for men. I don't really get it. When I see men with that incipient shadowy little beard flitting and flirting over their jawline I immediately draw the conclusion that the jaw line is dropping. They are trying to conceal the fact.

For myself, I don't particularly like a love scramble with a man who needs a shave. Is this the attempt to look more masculine or what? For me it only looks scruffy and as if you didn't brush your teeth either. Here is Robert Downey Jr. for your perusal.

Did I ever tell you I had a big crush on Robert Downey, Sr.? He was a waiter at Pam-Pam in Greenwich Village before he began a career in underground movies. Long before Robert Downey Jr. was born. Very tall and handsome. Really great!

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Simon Nessman

This week's Handsomest Man in the World is a model whom I have had on here before...Simon Nessman. He is clambering upward in the profession. Check out this Georgio Armani ad for their new Gio fragrance. Great mouth.

I would also like to include this spread from the latest people magazine. The supposedly hottest men in all age categories. Am I wrong or don't most of these guys look almost exactly alike? Oval face, dark hair, very regular ken doll features. What happened to square jaws? What happened to those " I am going to go crazy if I don't sleep with you" looks. These all just seem like a bunch of nice American guys. Next!


Dear David,
I am seeing two men at the same time. One doesn't know. The other doesn't care. Mr. Number. One heard me on the phone to Mr. Number 2 and heard me say "darling" a couple of times. When he accused me of having an affair with someone else I lied and said I was talking to my agent and always call him "darling." What would you have done?
~Liar, Liar Pantsonfire

Dear Pantsonfire,
I would have done exactly the same thing. They always say they want to know everything. The don't really. Romance is a kind of fantasy. It is your job to preserve the fantasy. And there are some men who want the bad news. Don't give it to them.

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Is it normal to have...

Dear David,
I have a South American lover who thinks it is quite normal to have sex daily and maybe twice. I would never tell my friends this as it would seem like we are kind of sex crazed. Am I wrong?
~Lotta Sex

Dear Lotta,
Yes, you are wrong. Lucky you!

Feeling like the "tagalong" partner...

(Lady Gaga)

Dear David,
I have been with my boyfriend over eleven years and he has become quite well known in his field. I like my work a lot but it is not the kind of thing where I will become visible to the public. More and more when we go to parties and dinners I feel like I am the "tagalong" partner in his shadow whom no one really wants to know. It doesn't affect our relationship but it bothers me. I think I am quite interesting and fun.
~Sour Puss 

Dear Puss,
I am sure you are very interesting and a lot of fun. What you are experiencing is what women have to put up with for centuries. And probably some men married to female Hollywood movie stars. I don't think it will affect your relationship with your Mr. Lover. I'd just bite the bullet. Or perhaps start wearing bizarre outfits and hats that no photographers can resist. Then the press will start referring to your lover as the "tagalong" to you!

Fashion Fashion Fashion!

This is fashion day and I have some new things to show the ladies today. A little stuff for men also:

1. I ran across these look that I found quite facinating. They are dresses or long skirts or shirts, whatever you may like to call them, worn over pants. It looks quite new but actually how many women dress in the Near East. Fashion seems to be anticipating getting into a new market that spends a lot of money on clothes, but the clothes have to be wearable for them in their more restrictive world. Interesting, no? Our worlds are going to mesh more and more.

2. Lots of this black and white geometric look around. I kind of like it as too many colors and too many patterns don't really show you off as well.

3. I love this green coat from acne. This is the coat of coats for you if you haven't gotten a new coat yet. Shouldn't be too expensive either, from Acne.

4. This red look from Dior is of course a fortune but pretty easy to duplicate. A kind of of little belted sweater top over a full shiffon skirt. This is a great look, particularly in red.

5. For the men: there has to be some criticism that Daniel Craig's suits are too tight in the Bond flick "skyfall." I don't mind seeing thighs bulge against trousers, do you?

6. For everybody: Do you know about the new group One Direction from London? For the quite young but a lot of talk about them. It 's time we had some new cuties on the scene.

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Mr. Barack Obama!

This Handsomest Man in the World is here! I found this cover on French GQ of our president. I think it is the best portrait I have seen of him yet. He is not smiling and really looks directly into your eyes. President Obama. You are handsome. We don't often have a handsome President. Thank the lord we have him back for four more years!

As an added extra I found this sexy picture as part of an ad for a clothing line called Gents. I thought you'd like it!

Love, Kids & It's a Fabulous Life

Dear David Divine,
My lover/partner/husband and I have a small child and I like our life together very much except we seem to be slipping into all family and no sex. I think this is fatal in the long run, particularly for gay couples. I am sure you have ideas about this.
~Frust Rated

Dear Mr. Rated,
I have some friends who were in exactly the same situation as you are. What they did I think is inspirational. They set aside one night a week and that was their date night. They got a baby sitter, planned where to go, and came home ready for some rampaging. Plus, one of them works on weekends and has days off during the week. His partner is a freelancer and they also include an afternoon love fest, as their child is in school and they can frolic all over. Such a good idea. Work out something like his. You need to do it for your health and his! Really.

Did you get tickets to "It's a Fabulous Life" At the Broward Center this week? I'm there for a little curtain speech Wednesday opening night. Come! Purchase your tickets here.

Dear David,This is such an old fashion problem, but the man I'm dating has bad breath. I just don't know how to bring it up. I like kissing him alot, but whoa! Help me.
~Deep Breath

Dear Deep Breath,Here's what I do. I get a big bottle of Listerine. I walk in and say, "I love you very much but you need this." Make him gargle and start kissing him. He won't be offended.

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Jesus Luz

Here we are, time for a new Handsomest Man in the World. I ran across this photo of Jesus Luz when he was Madonna's boyfriend. I don't know what became of him but he still has to be under 30. Truly, he is THE handsomest.

Should I have my neck done?

Dear David,
I want to have my neck done but I don't have the nerve. My partner thinks I'm foolish. I hate the way I look in the mirror but I'm afraid.
~Neck and Neck

Dear Neck and Neck,
Oh, please - just do it! It is the most certain of procedures. You will look ten years younger and you won't be dismayed when you look in the mirror. Email me: if you need a doctor's address here in Miami.

My lover is allergic to my...

Dear David,
I have become involved with a man who is allergic to my cat. He can't even spend the night with me and is coughing and wheezing after almost immediately. I love my cat but should I get rid of him to keep my lover?
~Cat Caught

Dear Cat Caught, 
The gods have intervened to keep you from this lover. No, of course don't get rid of your cat! Keep your romance going in his house...or hotels. One of my friends has a husband who is allergic to everything. One day she said, "Get over these allergies or I'm leaving you!" His allergies went away immediately. Some allergies are not as serious as others and hopefully can be dealt with!

Fashion Day ~ DKNY, Calvin Klein & Leather Jackets

Men’s fashion is coming up today. Some things to think about as we get deeper into Autumn:

1. This DKNY ad I thought captured the look of dark shirt and tie. I really like this. I think they can match and if you have the nerve they can actually coordinate with the color of the suit. Can be very good looking but definitely not conventional.

2. This Calvin Klein jacket, sweater, coat combination looks really good. Extremely conventional but you will be very good looking in it.

3.  This leather jacket is okay but the hair is one of those trends I would like you to avoid. There is a a big new direction of girls dressing as guys, guys dressing as girls. The girl like guy think works. The reverse doesn’t.

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Marciano ad

I found this model in a Marciano ad. I have no idea who he is, but this is one pretty swell guy and my vote this week for Handsomest Man in the World!

To be blonde, or not to be blonde? That is the question...

{Thomas Liden by Christian Rios}
Dear David,
I have always wanted to be blond. I have plenty of hair but going blond seems too much, even for me. Your comments, please.
~Born to be Blond

Dear Born to be Blond,
Go for it. I have bleached the hell out of my hair since I was about 17 and still have a good bit left. I love being blond and the people who don’t like it aren’t going to like you anyway. The ones who do like it are going to like you a lot. I favor Latin American men and they like their blonds. Do it and head south!

Monday, November 12, 2012

I am going out with a very handsome man...

Dear David,
I am going out with a very handsome man. The handsomest I have ever dated. He seems very okay and not too worked up about his looks, but this kind of man I have always found isn’t going to give up everyone for someone. What’s your take? 
~Beauty Lover

Dear Beauty Lover,
We all are beauty lovers. I wouldn’t drop him because you are worried he will drop you. Go ahead. Fall in love. Deeply. You will get all the magic and the wonder. If he doesn’t, that’s just too bad. And sometimes people fall in love with you because you fall in love with them. Go ahead. Give it a try.

My lover doesn't...

Don't forget my darlings, it's election day!!!! Please go to the polls if you want me to continue to love you. This is an important election.

Dear David, 
My lover doesn’t look at me directly in the eyes when he kisses me. He either closes his eyes or looks off to the side. What does this mean while we are having sex?
~M.I. Toofussy

Dear Toofussy,
Yes, you are. He probably is imagining wonderful things where you are the fantastic center of it all. Despite that it involves two people, sex is a very private moment.

Monday, November 5, 2012

What do I do...

Dear David,
What do I do when I’m about to have sex with someone I like very much for the first time and I can’t get it up?
Dear P.P.,
I’m guessing your initials stand for Penis Problem?  Here is the classic solution. You say something about that this is so exciting you are falling all apart. You stop, go get a coke, turn on the TV, etc. - do something you two can do together that is a complete change of pace. Order a pizza!

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Sexy Man on the Phone

Handsomest man in the world this week is going to be this mysterious man with the phone on his crotch. Is this a great picture or what?!

Dear David,
I am not young but have pimples and red spots frequently, what would you do?

Dear Spotty,
Homeoplasmine, a French salve in a tube. Available in this country online at It's magical. Spots will go away in two days.

Help! Mom advice

Dear David,
I speak to my mother every day. She has big problems, all self-inflicted. I don’t like speaking to her at all yet I must. Did you or do you ever have this problem?
~Mom Beat

Dear Mom Beat,
Are you Italian? Sounds like it. Those Italian moms are famous for pushing that guilt button long and hard. I left home at 17, much to my mother’s relief I think. We would write each other once a week. Saw each other maybe twice a year.

I think you are doing the right thing. Just be patient. Call her so she can’t complain about that. And maybe hang the phone on your shoulder and read while she talks, saying “uh huh” and “is that so?” Occasionally. That’s plenty.

Monday, October 22, 2012

Either he is into me or he’s the best actor in the world...

Dear David,
I am having a romance with a man many years my junior. Many. You write that you are not your own type, which encourages me. I will say this, either he is into me or he’s the best actor in the world. What do you think?  
~Nu Experience

Dear Nu,
He’s into you or the best actor in the world? What’s the difference? I always say, you’re only young twice. Live!

Fashion Day ~ Transparent Coat, GAP & Lana del Ray

Here it is Thursday and time for some fashion foolishness, and not so foolish stuff.

1. The semi transparent coat. I think this is such a good look. Probably very warm too. And light enough to drag around with you. The hairdo? Please don't.

2. Men. This is THE look. Sweater with a design. Blue jeans you turn up. Narrow coat that is just a long jacket. And some kind of interesting sports shoes. I just wandered into a sports shoe store yesterday. So many great shoes Are out now. You need a pair. All of this from Gap, too.

3. Lana del Ray. I had her in the blog some time ago as a new person to watch and here she is. She has that old time movie star glamour and I see recently many of the models in advertising are now being put together to look like her. I like her singing very much, but whether you like it or not, her presence is going to have a bigger and bigger affect.

I have a friend who's life revolves around his dog. It's fido this and fido that all the time...

Dear David,I have a friend who's life revolves around his dog. It's fido this and fido that all the time. I have pets but they are my pets. I love them but I don't think of them as people. Am I wrong or is he wrong?
~The Pet Questioner
Dear Pet Questioner,I was brought up in a household with many pets so I am used to having animals around the house. However, I do think there is a danger of letting pets take the place of a person in your life. They always love you. They don't talk back. They don't argue. All around they're much easier. But you are right. They cannot be fulfilling in the way a relationship is. If they must always be present and you cannot leave them - often they create a barrier that makes having a relationship difficult. I myself think they are there are there to create that barrier because the pet owner doesnt really want to have a relationship or do what is required - like pay attention to another person. Yes, love your pets but don't make them a substitute. That's my opinion.

Monday, October 15, 2012

I have just turned fifty. I am still in very good shape...

Dear David,I have just turned fifty. I am still in very good shape. Just yesterday I was in a store and I heard the lady say, "guapo, guapo!" which means handsome in Spanish. So I guess I'm alright. I have always had a lot of attention, but just in the past few years much less. And less all the time. The future frightens me. Did this happen for you? Please talk.
~ Mr. Fifty
Dear Mr. Fifty,You're lucky. What's happening in your life now usually happens at about 38. Quentin Crisp used to say, "suddenly you're 38 and no one cares anymore. And all that time you thought it was your pep and personality. No, it was your beauty." This was all in his encouragement to have a style, and beauty could not be part of the style.

I never went through this as I was never that good-looking. Atleast in my own mind. And I was always about style. Which was all about not caring what others thought of me. Which worked well, my being gay.

In your case I think you might bite the bullet and realize it may be your turn in the barrel. How about paying attention to the next person who is interested in you, whether you are interested in him or not? Let him be the one who loves the most and you let him. Good relationships are often built upon this, and maybe you need a relationship right now.

Women's fashion ~ coats, evening gowns, and horrible suits

I want to talk about women's fashion a little. How about coats? Winter is coming!

1. I think this Hugo Boss coat is excellent. It isn't as big as a barn door and actually looks like it would be worn. You don't need to look bulkier. This is probably not all that expensive.

2. Here's a MaxMara look I like a lot. Sort of the Burberry shape, tie belt. Really a nice look over pants. Notice the pants have cuffs. This is an updated Katherine Hepburn look that could be great on you. Heels or flats would look good with this.

3. Keira Knightley in an Armani evening gown. Probably insanely expensive but copies should be about. This is the look for evening if you want them to reel back as you enter. As for Keira Knightley - is she going to make it? I don't really get it. Seems like just a nice English girl is in there under all the hairdos and folderol.

4. This is a Prada look you must avoid. My take on Prada is that it is designed to make you look really bad - as though you were above fashion. The fashion world kind of ignores this and I'm not sure why.

5. Diane Kruger. She is everywhere in the press and magazines but doesn't ever seem to make an important movie. Am I wrong?

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Zhao Lei

Here we are at Handsomest Man in the World time and I have someone very new and different for you. There is a new men's fashion magazine from Portugal called Hercules. Very swank. They just did a trip to China and here's a male model from that issue. Zhao Lei is his name. Doesn't he have what the oldtime movie stars had? Think Cary Grant. Isn't he great?!

Is the whole world getting fat or is it just this country?

Dear David,
You seem to travel a lot. Is the whole world getting fat or is it just this country?
~Tonnage A. Lert

Dear Tonnage,
No, my friend. The rest of the world beyond the U.S. is not getting fatter. Some parts are getting thinner. We are fat here in the U.S. Have you ever been to an airport in Chicago? You can hardly get through it the thighs and buttocks are so enormous. I think all of this poundage is really a reaction to sex. I think Americans are afraid of it and are hiding their sex parts under folds of flesh. You can't have it if you can't find it, right? I live in Uraguay part of the year. The men there are very hot, muscular and trim. Go for a visit and take a vacation from all the pounds and pounds in the northern hemisphere.

My wife and I have sex very infrequently...

Dear David,
I am a straight man and my friend suggested I write to you. Here it is: I have been married for twelve years. I have two great children. My wife and I have sex very infrequently and without enthusiasm. If I didn't initiate it we would never have sex. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
~Missin' the Lovin'

Dear Mr. Lovin',
How about losing some weight? I know a straight couple that got married and the husband looked like Tab Hunter. Not many years later he looked like Henry the Eighth. They had two children soon after marriage. And then no more. At one point he circled the globe and lost a ton of poundage. She went to meet him and Tab was back and voila, a third child. 

How do you look? Are you sexy? Have you done everything sexually you would like to do? Come on. There you are a sexual team. Maybe you both should go into training. It isn't that you are not interested in sex it's that you're not willing to really work at what makes a person sexy. Sex isn't like rainfall. It doesn't just happen. You gotta make it happen! Good luck!

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Bergdorf Goodman menswear model

And now the choice of Handsomest Man in the World the first week of October. A new model for Bergdorf Goodman menswear. A sizable mustache and very romantic eyes. This guy must be South American or European. Is this a new direction? Grown up men with mustaches? Is Clark Gable returning? I hope so!
