Macho no more?

Do you remember the years when our local version of Cosmopolitan magazine was the only one of its kind? It was also the only one that dared cater to Philippine women’s, ermm, cravings. In the early 00’s, this was a major step forward for womanhood.

Pictures like this, to our utmost pleasure, finally made the rounds:

Jon Hall - the "love of my life" in my high school days

Moving forward, a lot of things have changed since then. I’ve moved on from my macho Cosmo crushes. Newer magazines have popped up, and Jon Hall is long gone from the Cosmo 69 Bachelors list, or from any list for that matter.

Also, Facebook was invented, discovered, and it developed along with it the inevitable weird friend invites that go hand-in-hand with social networking sites. What does Facebook have to do with Cosmo, you ask? Why, it’s only the reason I remembered the days of Jon Hall, dear reader.

Yes, this screen cap is real, unedited, save the lame censor attempt.

Oh, Jon, if only you noticed me when I was still in high school, I would have clicked on Confirm so readily. Now my post-high school mind can only manage to send a message and say “Hi. Sorry, do I know you?”

    RX people yung common friends though, that’s why I’m not questioning his “true identity.” ;p
