Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling

Early on in my viewing of The Mindy Project (Tuesdays, 9:30/8:30c, Fox), I took a hard stance against the seemingly inevitable Danny (Chris Messina) and Mindy (Mindy Kaling) pairing. In fact, I wrote a whole story about why these polar opposite colleagues-turned-friends should never take their relationship to the next level. At the time, I said it was because so many of Mindy's other love interests were just as endearing and more believable. (Brendan gave her that star for her birthday! If Pastor Casey really makes it as an event planner, they can still make it work!) But the real confession might just be a much more selfish one: that I want Dr. Danny Castellano all for myself. Sure, he's attractive and has a good job but my love for the (sadly) fictional but wonderful leading man runs much deeper. Here are 25 reasons why Dr. D is the guy for me:

1. He's nice to look at.
