It’s that time of year when all of our favorite celebrities are giving commencement speeches at colleges and universities across the country. Lucky for us, Mindy Kaling is no stranger to that scene. In fact, she just returned to her alma mater of Dartmouth to give out some of the best advice she could to the 2018 graduates.
The biggest takeaway? Her dating advice to men graduating college. In a world of “me toos,” it’s important to really get your dating gears turning the right way. That’s why Kaling says it’s important to treat every girl you date like “a reporter for an online publication that you’re scared of.” Why? That way, when you’re going out on dates and trying to navigate treating women right, you’ll be more cautious about the things you say and do.
Her closing line was the real kicker. “Date like everyone’s watching, because we are.” If you really want to get in good with the people you’re trying to woo, it’s important to make sure you’re ACTUALLY doing things by the book. (The book we’ve recently rewritten.)
And as for the ladies? Make sure you’re supporting each other. We’ve got to stick together!
