There are plenty of good-natured, wholesome, loyal men out there--and we caught one of them as our August Cosmo Online Hunk. Singer-actor Jaco Benin made a good first impression on you last week, wowing you with his talent and passion for his craft, and his declaration that "I'm faithful and loyal." Sounds like the guy you'd want to have for a boyfriend, right?
But, while Jaco is currently in a relationship (sorry, ladies!), he will surely inspire you to go after your dreams and remind you not to settle for Mr. Pwede Na. Read on to learn about this catch's goals in life, his idea of the perfect relationship, and how he describes his dream girl--which, to a great guy out there, could be you!
Completing the whole ideal guy package is Jaco's gorgeous face and bod' so make sure you click through his hot gallery this week!
Can you describe the girl of your dreams?
She should be, above all things, God-fearing. She should have good values and [she shouldn't be] maarte. Ayaw ko ng sosi. Kuwela lang siya pero girl.
What kind of makeup should a girl wear to get your attention?
'Yung natural lang. Ayaw ko 'yung sobrang mag-makeup. Actually kung pwedeng wala--I'd rather see her natural beauty.
What kind of clothes do you find sexy on a girl?
For sexy, casual lang. 'Yung parang polo, shorts, and jeans. I don't like 'yung mini skirts and stuff. Basta not too short and not too revealing, kasi siyempre you want to show off pero sometimes it's too much lang na hindi na siya magandang tingnan, or I can't even look at it na.
Where would you take a girl on the perfect first date?
[I'd take her out for a] nice dinner, so we could talk and get to know each other. And I'd dance with her under the stars and sing to her.
What makes an ideal relationship for you?
I guess being open to each other kasi I don't believe na if we disagree on something, the tendency is for the guy to walk out. Guys shut their mouth and they don't want to talk about it. But ako, feeling ko, you have to talk about it. It's normal to fight. Don't think na if you keep fighting, you're not for each other. It's actually normal. I guess don't expect everything to be perfect, iyon na lang.
What can you say about guys who put career over love?
That depends on you. If you ask me, I'll prioritize my relationship, always. But, marami namang perspective 'yan. Like, if I want to have a good future, I'll [also have to] do good on my career, but she's always involved.
What qualities should a girl look for in a guy when she wants commitment?
I think a guy [should] love God first, above everything else. If he loves God, he will know how to respect the girl and will know how to be faithful and loyal. I think that's the perfect answer for that.
Do you believe there is one perfect match for each person? Why or why not?
Yeah, I do. I believe God decided on that. God [made] guys adventurous and girls moody, pero they actually complement each other.
What are your biggest dreams?
Siyempre, I want to do good in my career. One day, I want to travel around the world. And of course, I want to have a family of my own.
Where do you see yourself five years from now?
I think I see myself in my own place, with my own gym, and hopefully I'll be steady by that time.
