I came to the US as a graduate student when I was 26 years old. I am now in my early-80's and thanks God for his blessings, I have four successful and professional children and six grandchildren here in the US. My wife and I had been enjoying the snow bird lifestyle between US and Philippines after my retirement from USFDA in 2002.

My Man Crushes and Bro-mances
You do not have to be gay or bisexual to have a man crush or a bro-mance. This statement I recently read from a comment of one of the fans of The Pinoy TV drama, My Husband's Lover. I definitely agree with the statement, since my man crushes are currently Harrison Ford and Tom Rodriquez. I am for sure not gay, very much married and have 4 children and 6 grand children, But I still have man crushes. A man crush is defined as a man who has a crush or idolize another man without sexual attraction. A bro-mance on the other hand is a close non-sexual relationship between two (or more) men, a form of affectional or homosocial intimacy. The most well-known bro-mance today is between Blake Shelton and Adam Levine of the NBC Singing Show, the Voice.
In the TV drama, My Husband's Lover. Vincent( played by Tom Rodriguez), one of the leading actors is bisexual. Vincent is married to Lally ( Carla Abellana) with two kids, but at the same time he has a gay lover, Eric, played by Dennis Trillo. Thousands of fans of this drama have crushes for Tom Rodriquez from both sexes, gay or straight based on comments posted on Facebook and on the MHL website. Rodriquez is a neophyte as an actor compared to the other actors in the drama. However, Tom is adored by thousand of viewers because of his acting talent as well as his looks and personal background. I am re posting my man crush photo of Harrison Ford taken several years ago as well as of Tom. I have a couple of bro-mances during my college years.
My photo above was taken in Las Vegas about 20 years ago. Do you recognized the face of Indiana Jones from the movie Temple of Doom? Do not be afraid to tell me your man-crush, whether you are gay or not! Good Day to All!
