Last spring, when I was still a slave to Starbucks, I met a barista at the Greenpoint location named Jarred. I will never forget the first time I saw him in there. My thoughts were:
1) He is so young and perfect looking - how is he not a model?
2) He's entirely too sweet and nice to be from NYC
3) He's so beautiful, why is he working here and not modeling?!
Sadly, he did not stay at Starbucks for very long and I wrote a blog about him to wish him a farewell, since I didn't think I'd see him again. Little did I know, I'd run into him constantly - at the gym, at the Natural Garden, walking on Kent Ave, on the B61, on crutches in front of Rite Aid (broken foot?), smoking outside on his stoop, running shirtless on Kent - this guy is everywhere!
And every time I see him, I'd get a quick update on his exciting life. He's working, going to school, and you guessed it - modeling! I recently noticed some photos on his Facebook page and asked for permission to post them here. And although I've always preferred men with dark hair, there have been a handful of exceptions. After all, I appreciate beauty in all its forms. And you simply cannot deny how flawless looking he is. Look at this guy!
Who has eyes that blue and lips that gorgeous? He's like an angel. Or the best Banana Republic model ever.
My god, you could cut glass with that jawline!
Woah! Running and bike riding have certainly kept him in perfect shape-
And I think this is my favorite. I love that outfit and his face here. Look at those freaking cheekbones! (Hey! I've seen him with that gym bag with him on the bus!)-
Jarred, you are obviously a genetically superior being, but somehow it has not gone to your head. I realize I only know you casually, but I think you're awesome. Despite your spectacular good looks, you have always come across so kind and down to earth.
I think you mentioned you may be moving out of Greenpoint soon. If that's the case, I guess I won't be running into you anymore, but I'll still be looking for you - in magazines. I wish you a long, lucrative and successful career. You really deserve it and I'm cheering for you!
