If there’s one thing the internet loves, it’s a boyfriend.
You know what we’re talking about. They’re the sort of hunky male celebs that cause us to lose our minds on social media. The ones we retweet with reckless abandon, whose Instagram stories we obsess over. We make them into memes and always, always call them “Dad” in the comments. They’re just as likely to earn a place in your Tumblr dashboard as they are your swooning daydreams. These are the men who turn your every waking moment on social media into some sort of immersive Tiger Beat experience—in the best way possible. And we’ve got to say, 2018 was full of ’em.
Whether they’re breakouts from Netflix rom-coms or pop stars with abs for days, Olympians with supreme social media game or movie stars wowing us with how woke they are, one thing is for sure: Our thirst was real.
So, to all the boys we loved this year, we thank you. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2019.
