Ladies, meet Walter Singleton, a 28-year-old model from Harlem, New York who is everything you’ve ever asked for in a man — tall, dark and handsome; smart, funny and sensitive. Let’s review his finest qualities this morning.

Walter says modeling just fell into his lap. We can see why. Just look at him. “I wasn’t used to getting a lot of attention. All of a sudden everybody was telling me, ‘You should model.’”

How does this hunk stay in top shape? When he’s not in the gym, you can find him boxing in the ring or practicing mixed martial arts.

“I’m a Bruce Lee fan,” Walter confesses. “My workout is similar to his as far as the resting periods in between sets. People normally do three sets of ten when their weightlifting. I do five sets. That adds more definition. That goes for men and women.” Thanks for the tip, babe.

“I don’t fit the male model stereotype,” Walter says. “I’m not high strung or conceited. I’m the opposite. I’m just laid back, very quiet and I’m a comedian at the same time.”

He may be a bit shy, but that doesn’t stop ladies from complimenting him on his sexy lips, smooth complexion, strong arms, cut abs and cute butt. “I’ve heard it all,” He giggles.

This brother’s got brains too. He graduated from Columbia University with a computer science degree and minored in philosophy and women’s studies. We like that he’s in touch with his feminine side.

With a backdrop like New York City, it’s easy for Walter to indulge in his romantic side. A date with him would include a quiet, candle-lit dinner at his favorite restaurant in the West Village.

He’s also not opposed to planning a spontaneous trip out of the country. “I try to do different things, like fly her out to the Bahamas,” he says. We’d love to end up on a white-sand beach with you.

“My dad always said, ‘You have to satisfy your woman mentally, physically and spiritually,’” Walter says. "I watched the way he treated my mom.

Walter is a traditional brother. “A lot of cats don’t appreciate women,” Walter observes. “I still hold doors, I still give up my seat on the subway. That’s just how I was raised.”

“My friends describe me as a fool as far as making them laugh,” Walter chuckles. “I’m quiet, but once you get to know me, I’m a comedian.”

Humor is the way to a girl’s heart.

It’s no wonder that this active guy is attracted to athletic women, but what matters most to him is personality. “It’s all about the way women present themselves and the way they treat others,” he reveals.
