Nina Dobrev Spills On Her Type Of Guy Post-Ian Somerhalder Split & Friendship With Julianne Hough!

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.”

Nina added:

“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!

    Get over your Paul Wesley,Nina Dobrev dream. If it hasn't happened in four years it ain't gonna happen. Besides she spends all her free time with Derek Hough. One big happy "famehoes".
    I don't care as long as she stays away from Ian. I saw her as nothing but a heartless bitch. The way she behaved immediately after the split was disgusting. You don't go on a 'I'm so happy, happy, happy" spree right where your ex can see it. You just don't do that to someone you supposedly loved for three years. Her mother obviously didn't teach her common decency.

    I agree with you, I don´t like Nina, She seems a stupid girl, Ian is a great person and he disorves much better than she. I love Ian and i didn´t like see ian with her, she is a bad person

    The funny thing is, the guy she describe is Ian in every way. I think when single girls get together and the only girl in the group that's in a relationship feels pressured. I feel this is one of those cases where she wants to find herself, with her friends. It's a shame really because good men are hard to find when you aren't looking.

    Lol the plot thickens. Sounds like Nina's ideal date would be partying at Gay Bars in Salt Lake City with dancer Derek Hough. Out of curiosity I just asked my straight hubby if he would ever go to a gay bar with his friends and he said "nope, wouldn't be seen dead in one". Make sure you use a rubber with that one Neens.

    I am glad Nina and Ian both parted and moved on ..both of them are happy in their world.. Nina is party loving person where Ian is may be different …I hope nian fans and Nina fans now stop bashing Ian permanently n leave him alone.. waiting to see Ian with a nice girl …

    Her photos are are so much airbrushed though she is looking good for a change ..Good Luck to her , she seems getting closer to Derek Hough ..bit too close . peope keep saying she it too young…for go sake.. she is 25 yrs old woman…not a teenager ..but she does behave like a teenager.. i think Julliane,Derek and Nina suit each other …

    Re: Portugal – Never going to happen, they have absolutely no chemestry on or off screen, and paul says she is like a little sister to him. She said in on interview Magazine that right from the beginning she fought against her attraction to Ian and dident succeed, she fell in love with Him.

    Re: kay – wat i had thought as well which makes me to believe Ian broke it off with her and she tried to show him wat he was missing even though i think he lost that attraction after her whole im so happy summer

    She is extremely immature. When she commented she's attracted to mind (intelligence), humor, and talent, that DID describe Ian. Why can't she tell the truth for once? Every specific detail of the kind of guy she's attracted to WAS IAN! Talent? I never needed 'talent' for me to be attracted to a man. She's so self consumed. How can she say she's a 'relationship kind of girl' she was 21 when she started dating Ian. How many 'relationships' did she have before that? She's acting malicious and disrespectful to the long 3 year relationship they had together. Stop insulting Ian!!!!!Glamour, glitter, long fancy gowns and partying DEFINES her;she's acting very unprofessional making comments like that and shouldn't be allowed to since the TVD show is still currently filming. With these disrespectful comments she's making in this article, Ian should be allowed to retweet, people change and forget to tell each other!!!! She once said when she started dating him,"Sometimes you can't help who you're connected with," is she forgetting she said that about him? That WAS the chemistry she was referring to. Nina tell the truth for once! Or are you too afraid to tell the truth because YOU were wrong? You lead him on for 3 years for God's sake! Are you capable of any honesty?
