Ooooh la la now here's some fun Friday gossip: New Jersey Senator Cory Booker asked out comedian Mindy Kaling on Twitter today after some serious flirting. And it looks like they made a date. So buckle up folks, this power couple could actually happen!

The flirtation began earlier this week when Mindy Kaling's character on The Mindy Project name-checked Cory Booker and poked fun at the city of Newark, of which he used to be Mayor. So the Twitter-happy Senator called her out with this tweet:

"Ouch!" he wrote with a broken-heart emoji. "@MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night.... & I disagree." He then added: "I still โค๏ธ U!"

Flirty shots fired! In under ten minutes, Kaling had fired back with this tweet:

She explained that just because her TV alter ego made fun of Newark doesn't mean Mindy feels the same way. She also said "Thanks for the โค๏ธ It's mutual!"

And then, things just kept heating up! Booker got straight to the point with his next tweet, like a true gentleman:

And.... drum roll please..... she said yes.

By now, everyone was shipping this duo. Including the PATH train itself:

Good job, team! And this really was a team effort.

Then, if you still had any doubt that this is a real life romantic comedy, Booker responded with this:

DOOR-TO-DOOR LYFT SERVICE? This guy has all the right moves. Hopefully Mindy Kaling agrees.

People don't just want this love match to happenโ€”they need this love match to happen.
