Mindy Kaling is all of us. If you haven’t seen The Mindy Project, borrow someone’s Hulu account and watch every episode immediately. ASAP. Pronto. You can thank me later. Mindy is hilarious, a little bit crazy (aren’t we all?), and the best friend we wish we all had. I’m not kidding; I would do anything to be best friends with Mindy Kaling. Her show is amazing, but for some strange reason, FOX cancelled The Mindy Project at the end of last season. Hulu picked it up, bless their beautiful souls, and the series is coming back tomorrow, September 14.

Here are a few of Mindy’s wise words as it applies to dating:

  1. When you’re trying to think of all the reasons a guy should date you:
