Burly, muscular, sexy, suave, sophisticated, handsome. Those are some of the adjectives that easily describes Alex de la Cruz, our latest Hottie of the Week. 

The Los Angeles based product designer is easy on the eyes but there’s so much more to him that goes beyond the aesthetic. He’s one of those amazing gems in the gay community when it comes to just how freaking sweet he is to everyone around him. Alex is the kind of guy you want to hang with as he will bring a smile to your face immediately due to his friendly vibes and warm personality. Oh and he’s gorgeous, but we already mentioned that above.

He also has a fun sense of humor about himself that you can find more about in our cute little Q&A below about this west coast stud muffin. Take a look.

What do you think is the most attractive part about yourself?

I think the most attractive part about myself is my bright personality and my ability to apply some empathy to others who seem to be abrasive but are actually suffering.

What do you find guys compliment on you the most, physically?

My tits LOL.

What, to you, defines sexy in another man?

I find kindness balanced with self respect and ambition defines sexy in another man.

What is your proudest moment so far in your life in being an out and proud gay man? 

The proudest moment in my life so far as an out and proud gay man is getting a better understanding that my childhood has a profound impact on how I treat people and myself as an adult.

What haven’t you accomplished, personally or professionally, that you are wanting to do in the next 2-3 years?

Professionally I’d like to rid the anxiety and to finally kickstart in full force promoting and selling a product that I’ve had in mind for so long.

Have you found love? If so what is the best part of your relationship and what do you love most in your partner(s)?

I was single for 8 years by choice till the love of my life broke down my walls with a plastic fork. I have never been so in love in my life. He gives me the love that I should have had as a child. I grew up without much guidance so I didn’t know how to defend myself. I didn’t know any better. My partner’s love allowed me to see my value, which helped me love myself and others stronger. The best part of our relationship is that we have fun and get along so well in good times, especially in bad times. We enjoy each other’s company very much. Everything good and bad in the past had to happen for the universe to cross my path with his at the right phase of my life. And I feel incredibly fortunate. This isn’t to say being single is less desirable. I’m a huge proponent of being in a relationship with oneself.

Rapid fire question round: 

Favorite movie of all time?

The 5th Element

Biggest celebrity crush at the moment.

I don’t really have one.

Favorite cheat meal or snack that you can’t get enough of.

Oh man, this is hard because I love food so much. I wish I could make money traveling the world tasting food.

If you’re stuck on an island for eternity, what album do you want to have there with you?

AntiChist Superstar by Marilyn Manson

What does it mean to be featured as our Hottie of the Week for you?

I just feel honored and very flattered. And I hope at least one person reading this could find a parallel in their life and understand it’s important to “do yourself right so you can be right for someone.” -some dude.
