Nina Dobrev covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and she opens up about relationships, breakups, and friendships.
Nina and her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder broke up several months ago, and Nina is being careful not to mention his name. When asked about her relationships, she instead discusses what draws her to a man, revealing, “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! 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.”
She also denies the rumors that she and Julianne Hough got closer as friends because of their respective breakups with their boyfriends. Nina says that relationships shouldn’t define a person, and her relationship with Ian definitely didn’t define her. She doesn’t go into details, but it’s a refreshing answer that is revealing without being coy.
