Nina Dobrev Is 'In No Rush' To Find A New Relationship Post Ian Somerhalder Breakup!

| Filed under: Love LineIan SomerhalderNina Dobrev

nina dobrev long term relationship

Singlehood is treating this lady all too well!

Nina Dobrev isn’t letting her split from her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder get her down. Instead, it seems she’s enjoying life solo…and is ready to welcome whatever comes her way next!

At Cosmopolitan’s Summer Bash on Saturday, the gorgeous actress revealed that she’s in “no rush” to jump into a relationship:

"I've been a relationship girl, and I've been in long-term relationships my whole life until this point, so I think I'm looking forward to spending some time with myself and finding myself again… I'm just discovering different sides of me and growing and then I'll figure out what I like in a man when I see it."

Nina then added:

"It's all about finding out what meshes and what doesn't, and what you like and what you don't… Life is about experiences, so I guess I'm just figuring that out."

Though we were sad to see the end of this real-life Damon-Elena love affair, her outlook is exactly right!

Smart thinking, gurrrl!

    Really ..Nina said to US weekly ..she does not want to rush to the new relationship and would like to discover herself….I am confused, after breaking up with Ian Somerhalder, she did manage to discover herself by doing Partying Partying Partying with Hough Family .She was on Derek back enjyong Chichago music festivall. .they seem too close , may be she was having fun n discovering herself..Glad for Ian and hope he does not take her back ever in his life and move on

  20. DN says – reply to this


    BTW people r keep going on an on about Ian age ..Nina is no getting younger.. she is 25 yr old women too not a teenager ..let see who she chooses next …? what if she follows Julliane Hough direction ..hahahha Julliane is dating older man again …she will do anything jullian does ..so let see..

  21. Ugh says – reply to this


    Is she still talking to US Weekly? Thanks for keeping it classy Ian. Yes Nina, you dumped him, you're as free as a bird to get drunk, party and run around the beach. Sadly your new friends haven't done your image any favors. Quit using Ian's name in these articles geesh. Is Ian jealous? Is Ian wanting her back? Did Ian send flowers? Post Ian breakup, Ian, Ian, Ian in Nina's articles….says a lot.
    This line is disgusting…."I'll figure out what I like in a man when I see it". If that's not disrespectful to a guy that treated her like a Queen and someone that she's still working with for two more seasons, I don't know what is. Man this chic needs to get over herself. I'm not see any qualities, self absorption is an ugly trait.

  22. Skank says – reply to this


    LMAO at Nian fans. Ian must be shaking his head to understand why his fans still want him with a woman that has no interest in him. She chose a PR stunt and new image over him. She couldn't manage both. That's love..NOT. So therefore I ship Ian and happyness. He deserves more. Also, just because Nina thinks she going to be the next big thing in Hollywood doesn't mean she will. How is she any different to Blake Lively or Leighton Meester? They've had magazine covers too. At the end of the day she is a CW TV Actress who has support of teen TVD fans (who she can't be bothered seeing at conventions) until proven otherwise.

  23. SUBI says – reply to this


    I am guessing some of the hatred comments directed at Nina are coming from bunch of kids. Just because you love Damon's character in TVD and Ian appears to be perfect to his fans and he looks hot…doesn't mean he has treated Nina really well. No one is perfect and if you don't find happiness in a relationship, or what you want, you don't have to stay. She is still young and still figuring out what she wants, there is no rush for her to be in a relationship. It's her life if she wants to take a break and enjoy whether it's partying, drinking, having the time of her life. People have no rights to judge NINA (or others) without knowing what she has gone through.

  24. 24

    Watcing a bunch of young girls argue over the stupidest of shit is pretty funny.

  25. taylor says – reply to this


    I love you Nina you are the best i adore you so much and i will alwyas support you ….Nina haters go to the hell

  26. Mandy says – reply to this


    I'm so done with her and her stupid pathetic tweets. She could at least show some respect to the Person she claimed to love for 3 years! Ian always treated her like a Queen, supported her, took her to many Events ( Emmy's, White House Diner, ISF Events) Even if something goes wrong cultured people don't do that, it's a shameful behavior.

  27. Fiona says – reply to this


    Re: Ugh – I totally agree. What a shame :( Ian hasn't directly said a word about all this. I stan him so hard right now! Please continue keeping it classy you awesome Man.

  28. hmmmm says – reply to this


    Hmm keep discovering your self Nina and i think you have find the way to discover yourself by self promoting everywhere, partying, drinking, smoking, Pouting ..Good for you ..ENJOY YOUR LIFE and KEEP DISCOVERING ..i can only laugh at your comment.. u will take time to discover a man , for that u might take 2-3 yrs then realise he is not the right person then move on to discover another men then another men then another men…hahhhahahha …..I hope by that time its not TOOO LATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE , you do look good with Derek and Julliane , you atlast have discovered good company for sure

    I am glad Ian is out of this crap , atleast he does not speak about his relationship n self promote .. Good luck to you buddy ..you deserve all the happiness and success ..

  29. hmmmm says – reply to this


    To all the nian n nina fans.. please stop creating disgusting rumourand link about Alexis Knapp with IAN anymore .. Alexisl is actually dating seth Macfarlane for the past few months and they seems happy.. best source is E NEWS !!!..hope this will shut all nina fans now …

    Be happy with Nina and Derek …or Nina Alone .. do not bring Ian everywhere in all the nina news..Nina and Ian are still working n they might have good working relationship .. Ian has seen her true color now , hope he does not take her back in his life if she start chasing him again and cant control her feeling :(

  30. 30

    I think that AK and Seth MacFarlane aren't a couple because Seth MacFarlane tweets 4 or 5 hours ago that he just came back in LA after 4 months that he filmed in the desert so how he could date AK if he wasn't in LA for 4 months?

  31. 31

    In Gossip Cop the Seth MacFarlane P.A said that isn't true they aren't a couple

  32. Wow... says – reply to this


    @ElenaSerrani …they might not couple but who knows they might be havin fun as they know each other for long time…. both r not marriage type ..media must be have seen them getting coseying up together at various places.. …people travel anywhere if they want …Seth is bit creepy anyway ….when two people get closer , media will find out thats what happend here , why to take so much tension ..

  33. kelza says – reply to this


    I love Nina but she needs to get her act straight. It took her 3 years to realize Ian wasn't right for her. It took me 3 seconds to realize they weren't right together. I personally think it was nothing but a publicity stunt that blew up so much they had to stay together. She just needs to get herself together and think about what she wants seriously before she acts.

  34. Anda says – reply to this


    So sad that she is using Ian to gain media attention. Ian doesn't deserve this! Nina just STOP being so rude towards Ian. when you say this things it looks like he meant nothing to you. You're hurting him. Just leave him alone, and carry on with your own life without him. Can't belive that she is doing this crap. So disappointed

  35. CC says – reply to this


    Re: SUBI – ah no, me making a comment on Nina has nothing to do with Ian being hot or her being young. It has to do with classy behavior and most importantly RESPECT.
    On that note.. "I'll figure out what I like in a man when I see it". Just wow. No words.

    "No rush to find a new relationship". You're kidding. Lies. She spends every weekend with Derek Hough, she should just admit it. Maybe when there's a new cosmo cover girl next month she will. It would make the strong, single, badass heartbreaker look like a hypocrite. Just make sure that being seen with Derek doesn't ruin your new girl power, hear me roar image. I think I'm liking more natural girls who don't try too hard, that don't put on a show. People like Candice, Kat and Claire. Less annoying I think.

    She doesn't even appear genuine and honest–nor does she act like that. She hurt Ian so terribly being dishonest and deceiving. Read her tweet on May 5–virtue????? Does she know the meaning of it at all? Relationship girl???? What is that? She was only 21 when she started dating Ian. She says she's discovering different sides of herself. What is that supposed to mean? Was she really ALL there.. ever? She's JUST NOW figuring out things in LIFE experiences–where was she before that? The main thing is, being honest with the people around you–not betraying their trust–whether it's family–friends—you can be 20 or 70–at either age, you treat others with respect as you would like to be treated. No HEAD GAMES!!!!!!

    What a lot of rubbish she speaks to sell herself and magazines. All her publicity has been about her relationship over the past three months and she loves it. She's also involved with Derek Hough but won't admit bc that would go against the single, finding herself, no rush rubbish she's been pushing. I believe Derek is in Atlanta spending the weekend at her place if sightings can be believed. It would be nice if she could attend a convention for once with fans. Every other cast member manages to do with their busy life.

  39. 39

    She should date Paul now that he´s single and getting a divorce..

  40. Taki says – reply to this


    Re: Ugh – When did she use Ian's name?!?!! She probably gave the most diplomatic answer, without evading, that she could to a question that was asked TO her.

    Honestly, it's the FANS that make all of her publicity about the relationship and speculations. She's certainly not mentioning it every second. In fact, I think her whole MO this summer was to redirect the attention to her, not Nian.

    I swear, this fandom is the most lousy, childish, fake, idiotic group of people. If I were the show runner, I'd be in a mental facility by now. I love seeing people claim that they know people on set who told them that so and so is horrible. How clever. *eye roll*

    Re: Anda – I agree with you

    So much for "I'm in no rush", 3 1/2 mos after breakup, she's hooking up with Trevor Stott already. He's not even good looking! Or half way looking period!! And talent? Isn't that one of her 'requirements' for her attraction to someone? He was a boom operator on vampire diaries who left after season 4 ended. He must've been great with the BOOM mike. She obviously didn't need time to get over Ian since she was NEVER into Ian in the first place. She is a purebred prick teaser. The 3 mos must be the 'allotted' time she takes in between all her relationships before she starts a new one. They are DEFINITELY more than friends now. You don't fly to another country with someone of the opposite sex,sharing a hotel room WITHOUT something going on. Nina or should she go by her real name Katherine Pierce..playgirl all the way…ALL THE WAY kind of girl….
