    Mindy Kaling is a beautiful woman. There is no doubt that men must be falling for her at the drop of a hat. Even so, this year, Kaling is going to spend her Valentines Day without a special someone in her life. The lady was last seen going around with Benjamin Nugent. The duo reportedly split in 2012 and since then officially Kaling has not been paired with anybody. But if rumors are to be believed, in all likelihood, Kaling and B.J. Novak may open up about their relationship, walk down the aisle and bring forth the next generation of lovely, hilarious kids.
