    Paul Mescal From "Normal People" Is The Internet's New Boyfriend And I Can't Deal With How Gorgeous He Is

    The Normal People star is making fans thirsty AF.

    If, like me, you've spent the weekend watching Normal People, you're well aware of who Paul Mescal is. If not, let me introduce you to the internet's newest obsession.

    BBC / Via gph.is

    This is Paul Mescal. He's a gorgeous Irish actor who is the star of Hulu and the BBC's new series, Normal People, about two teens in a small Irish town experiencing love for the first time and bonding over trauma. They also bone a lot.

    He plays Connell, a smart, sensitive jock who falls in love with outsider-turned-cool girl Marianne (played by Daisy Edgar-Jones). To me, he's basically a better version of To All The Boys I've Loved Before's Peter Kavinsky and I'm very here for it.

    The way he looks at Marianne makes me feel so many things! Is it possible to fall in love with a fictional character? Because I'm definitely loving Connell.

    People are already considering him the internet's new boyfriend, because, let's face it — he deserves the title. These tweets thirsting over him made me relate so much:
