We loved Mindy Kaling as Kelly Kapoor on The Office, we adore the hilarious The Mindy Project that she created and stars in, and we couldn't get enough of her memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns). Through all her ventures, Mindy has dished some honest and usually comical words of wisdom on dating, love, marriage, and one-night stands. And in her real life, she's even proved that you can be friends with an ex. Mindy's ex and BFF, B.J. Novak, said this about her in latest issue of Elle: "She's a gangster and guys respond to that. This is not a girl who waits by the phone. This is a girl who picks up the phone and calls whoever she wants." Work it, girl. Here's Mindy Kaling's best real and onscreen dating advice!
