ADAM WEIS WAS GOING ABOUT his business as founding partner of a real estate acquisition and management company called Hartex Property Group when a friend of the family submitted his picture to Cosmopolitan. The magazine was looking for eligible hunks for its ” Ail About Men” issue and Weds-successful entrepreneur, Harvard-educated, well-trav-eled, hunky-certainly seemed qualified But once this special edition of Cosmo hit the newsstands in May, Weis, the only bachelor from Dallas to be chosen, was like the beauty pageant winner who was suddenly insulted by the swimsuit portion of the competition and wanted to shoot straight ahead to the question about solving world hunger.
“It was just something to look back on and say, ’That was a good time. But some people read more into it than there is, ” says Weis, 34. “People who take this seriously are lacking a certain sense of humor.”
The initially willing/now reluctant sex symbol who has “never done a personal, never been in a dating service” and believes in “romance and love” is an SWM who sees himself as “a progressive kind of guy with an old-fashioned soul. ” As to which particular part of his package makes him most attrac-tive to the more than 100 SWFs he’s heard from since the issue came out, he says, “I hope that if something did appeal to someone it wouldn’t be the business success or the educational experiences, but my integrity and honesty.” Hope again.
The thirsty gambler need only point his car north.
