Leading Lady & the Ex-Factor

I love this American Express commercial starring Mindy:

Remember Mindy, when you got to Hollywood and they said, maybe you should play the best friend or the sidekick, and you thought, "Why can't I be the star? Am I not good enough? ... not pretty enough?"

That's what comes to mind when your ex-boyfriend, with whom you continue to maintain a friendship, B.J. Novak, speaks about your relationship past (while reflecting on your counterparts, Kelly Kapoor and Ryan, on The Office): 
"Says Novak, 'No one, including us, ever really knew, ‘Is this dating? Is this not dating?’ We were never really dating, we were never really not dating. We didn’t know. No one knew.'"
"'I would say it was a great and terrible chemistry, and it reflected what we were like in real life,' Novak said. 'No one ever knew if we were together or not, including us. We weren't always on the same page on a given day or a given hour. We fought a lot. We were each other's best friends. We were inseparable and not talking to each other, often on the same day. And people didn't know, if she was gone, they would ask me where she was, and vice versa. We were like E.T. and Elliott a little bit.'"*
*For the record, has B.J. Novak watched E.T.? This sounds nothing like E.T. and Elliott's relationship!

This begs the question Mindy... 

Listen girl, we know you love him, and we get that he loves you too, as a good friend... 
but the love you deserve isn't one which begrudgingly accepts your affections, filled with moonlight kisses that seem to cool in the warmth of the sun, creeping in this petty pace from day to day as it defers hugs and shared carrot cake from the Soho House:

The only bike-bound love I hope for you is this:

Even better this:

You deserve in love what you demanded in your career - to not settle for less than being the Leading Lady.
