When a celebrity is as dashingly handsome as Mehcad Brooks, one can’t help but wonder if he is dating anyone just to hate whoever it is.

In 2010, he was spotted with co-star actress from Blood In Blood, Serinda Swan, while they were having what looked like a romantic dinner together at Po restaurant in West Village, New York City in June 2010.
