It's the stuff rom-coms are made of.

There’s a new celebrity love story in the works, and Twitter users got a front row seat at the possible love connection.

Jokes about Newark, New Jersey in a recent episode of Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project caught the attention of former Newark mayor and current New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

Booker took to Twitter expressing his love for the show despite the shade Kaling’s character Mindy Lahari threw his way, and Kaling surprisingly replied.

Stunned by Kaling’s response, Booker decided to shoot his shot with the actress.

Kaling agreed to dinner with the senator, but with one condition.

Booker took one look at Kaling’s request and offered to provide her with a personal chauffeur via Lyft.

Twitter users had a lot to say about the flirtation transpiring on their timelines.

Now that Cory Booker and Mindy Kaling have their dinner date squared away, we can only hope they’ll keep the Twitter-verse in mind when the big day comes.

From down in the DM’s to love at first second sight, these couples know a thing or two about finding love in a (seemingly) hopeless place. Check out how these colorful personalities not only met, but managed to stay together.
