Proving to fans that their long-time friendship is still going strong, Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak attended the Vanity Fair Oscars viewing party together on Mar. 4 — and Twitter could not handle the cuteness. The timeline of Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak's relationship begins when the pair first met back in 2004, when they were both hired to write for and star in The Office. Since then, they've pretty much been inseparable, despite what's best described as a "complicated" relationship.

The two Boston-area natives started dating in their early Office days — right around the same time their characters on The Office were romantically involved — but ended up staying close after their eventual off-screen break-up. OK, "close" is kind of an understatement: Kaling and Novak are soup snakes for life.

Oh, and if you want to see the receipts, all you have to do is check out their social media accounts on any given day. They're constantly leaving each other heartfelt and/or hilarious comments, posting screenshots of their texts, sharing #BFF selfies, and showing each other support by celebrating successes. They're pretty much the definition of friendship #GOALS.

In honor of their most recent reunion at the Oscars, let's take a look at the timeline of their long-time friendship. Spoiler alert: it will make you feel feelings.
