Stunning, single, and totes open to some new adventures.
Nina Dobrev may no longer be dating Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder, but the actress sounds like she’s excited for all the newness ahead of her.
She recently sat down for an interview with Cosmo and opened up about what she’s looking for in a man. She explained:
“You either have chemistry or you don’t, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy’s mind and humor and talent. I need to get to know all those things before I fall for someone. I’m not a one-night-stand kind of girl. I’m a relationship girl.”
“I’m progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others. I like it when guys hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful. The guys on our show are really good at that. A man in a suit looking put together and dapper is very attractive, but I also kind of like the I-just-rolled-out-of-bed, a-little-bit-of-scruff, effortless, not-trying-hard-but-still-sexy guy. If a guy spends more time looking in the mirror than I do, that’s problem!”
The vamp also spilled on her friendship with Julianne Hough. She said:
“It’s been cool to find an active buddy – there are lots of girlie girls around. We don’t talk about makeup; we talk about life.”
But it seems people have often misunderstood their relationship, claiming that their recent single status has brought them together. That’s apparently not the case:
“That’s not what our friendship is about. Unfortunately, that’s how it’s perceived, but there’s more to us. People aren’t defined by their relationships. The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships.”
Well said, lady!
It sounds like that's exactly what you've been doing! Keep it up!
