Are Paul Mescal And Gracie Abrams 'For Real This Time'?

I think it’s fair to say the internet can agree on one thing: Paul Mescal is hot (whether he’s dead or alive). But the question is, is he single? It seems every time the man steps out of his front door and breathes in the direction of a living, breathing woman people start assuming Paul has entered a new flashy relationship. The most recent spotting that has fans in a tizzy is pretty compelling evidence though, to be fair. Paul was seen having dinner with new TikTok fave Gracie Abrams. It feels like Gracie has suddenly become a borderline household name overnight, which I very scientifically gauge by when my mom sends me a text asking who someone famous is. The Normal People star and the not-so-secret nepo baby are seen(ish) touching in the stealth pics, which obviously means it’s time to start shipping to infinity because they must be betrothed, right? Maybe. Let’s dive into Paul Mescal and Gracie Abram’s relationship timeline to find out.

According to v serious news source Deuxmoi, Paul and Gracie were dating back in the fall of 2023. These rumors came from an anonymous tip that said the pair were “hanging out” but the fledgling relationship was never confirmed if it did happen. Since then Paul has been alleged to have been dating The Bear superstar Ayo Edeberi and his former co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones, which spawned from a vague Instagram announcement gone wrong.

Nosey fangirls and boys are speculating yes because the photos of the pair dining together at BRAT in London made the rounds on June 30 (blindly assuming that’s a Charli XCX tribute restaurant). At one point it does look like Paul is reaching out to brush Gracie’s cheek which is blocked by a civilian’s poorly timed head movement. But it’s also possible she had lettuce in her teeth and he was getting it out for her, or something equally platonic, right? Delusional girlies, there’s your saving grace. In this house, when it calls to Paul Mescal locking someone down who isn’t Phoebe Bridgers, I’ll need to see it in writing to believe it.
