Ladies, wouldn't it be nice to have a man crush to look at especially when you are trying to get over the Monday morning blues? Well, your wish is about to come true: welcome to the Flair's Man Crush Monday's (#FlairMCM).

Each week, we will feature a handsome bachelor, both young and young at heart, digging deep in our quest to find out a little bit more about the man behind the muscles, as well as what he looks for in his perfect female counterpart.

Name: Jevon Dacosta

Age: 22

Occupation: Final-year medical student at UWI studying Physical Therapy

Hobbies: I absolutely enjoy going to the gym. I love to play dominoes and I enjoy taking time out to go to upscale restaurants and have a nice meal.

Relationship status: It's complicated

So let's heat things up.

1. How do you manage to stay fit?

Being fit, for me is more of a lifestyle. It comes naturally because I love to see myself grow and push myself to the next level. As my good friend says, "No one is perfect, but I will try my best to come as close to it as possible." Baseline, it is my passion and love for working out that has helped me to maintain this physique and this fit lifestyle. I can honestly say I wouldn't give up this for the world. It is what defines me and makes me the individual I am today.

2. What is your favourite food and why?

Baked chicken with mashed potatoes. Because its clean and healthy at the same time, and besides, I only eat chicken. Spicy food is not my type of thing - it gives me acid reflux - so I try to stay on the safer side. Hence I go with baked chicken most of the time.

3. What is your ideal date?

My ideal date would probably be going night jogging with that special person, then after we would just head to the beach, lie on the seashore in the sand and look into the sky while reflecting on life and just being intimate. And don't forget the champagne and candles - that would just set everything right.

4. What qualities appeal to you in women?

Number-one thing I look for is if I can share this lifestyle with this girl. If you are not a part of this fit lifestyle, then honestly you would not appeal to me (hear that ladies?) I need someone who can advise me on what I can do as it relates to training, give me innovative ideas and also be able to train with me. That's a complete plus.

Aside from fitness, she must be the girl who is self-aware and recognises her own flaws. I would love her to be the girl who continually strives to better herself. A woman who is comfortable in her own skin, doesn't let her insecurities stand in the way of her happiness, who knows it's okay to have insecurities but it's not okay to give those insecurities the power to eat away at her, are the qualities that appeal to me. And last, I want her to be the girl who is compassionate and empathetic; who will lend a hand when she can to a complete stranger, and who will listen without a judgemental ear.

5: What are some of the expressions you use the most?

I GOT THIS

YOW BRO BRO,

KNOW YUHSELF

Added Bonus: Any tattoos?

No tattoos, I am as clean as they come. I love to see it, but they are just not my thing.

And there you have it. Join us next week in our #FlairMCM series, where we highlight yet another steamy and dreamy beau of our eye-candy.
