Adrian / Francois

Believe it or not, we're really quite romantic here at HMBoys.
Whenever we can, we like to spread a little Love around the place...
So we were pretty pleased, just a few months back, when we managed to pair off those dark, sultry cuties Francois and Joaquin (don't forget to check the pair of them out when you've finished this!)
Francois, you'll recall, actually brought a large bunch of red roses along to their first date - and we've have put good hard cash down on the fact that they'd be staying together for quite some time.
But, as it turned out, that would have been flushing our hard-earned dollars down the drain: Joaquin soon, we're told, ran off with a hot young photographer - described by Francois as a "wide angle asshole" - leaving our boy utterly bereft.
And so, being, like I said, the romantic souls that we are, we tried to cheer young Francois up by inviting him to take a look at the HMBoys models catalogue to see if there was someone else that he liked the look of.
And we weren't there long!
We hadn't even got past the first alphabetical handful of models - AJ, Adam, Adas, Adis (gee, what weird names some of them have!) - when we hit the jackpot... Adrian!
Luckily, Saturday had been the only day that Francois had been able to get to town to meet us - and we happened to know that every Saturday afternoon Adrian plays local league soccer in the park.
As you can see, Adrian wears a replica of Argentinian national team star player Lionel Messi's # 18 shirt. Messi's his hero - though, to be honest, Adrian's soccer skills are pretty average. But as you can also see, though, he more than makes up for it in the looks department!
When the game was over, Adrian stayed around in the park, kicking a ball around with Francois and generally getting to know him, a process that they then continued in much greater depth back at the HMBoys studio.
And, while we wouldn't risk losing money for the second time on it, we're pretty certain that Francois's even more keen on his new friend than he'd been on Joaquin, if only because he's made himself quite an expert on professional soccer - and especially on Adrian's soccer hero Messi.
Of couse, as any fan knows, only last week Messi scored the winning goal against Manchester United, making his club Barcelona the 2009 European Champions' League winner.
But Francois seems to have discovered a few rather less well-known facts too...
"Because he's only 5'7" tall, Messi's been reported in the media as having had treatment for a growth hormone deficiency", he tells us.
"But I can guarantee, though, that Adrian's got no problem with his growth hormone - absolutely none at all!"
