is Cosmopolitan's August 2013 cover girl and she's telling the world (and her ex, co-star ): I'm single and available!
Woohoo! This is Dobrev making a statement, that she's moving on from her relationship with the real-life Damon Salvatore. In said interview, she made a ton of revelations about what she likes in guys and relationships. Most notably, she's not up for quick fixes, instead she's a long-term type of girl.
“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.”
All well and good, but usually after a long-term relationship (and especially one as followed as Dobrev and Somerhalder's) entering into another one is the LAST thing you want to do. Sounds like Nina really is level-headed about the whole thing, and ready for another throw of the dice. She went on to say more:
"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!”
So far, the picture is muddled. Humor and talent, sure...but she likes both men in suits and the scruffy, sexy type? How are you meant to balance those two? The men of the world who read Cosmo (so not many, presumably) will be racking their brains working out this conundrum in the hunt for Nina's heart. And she then went on to finally spill on her friendship with , who she's spent a lot of time with post her breakup with Somerhalder.
“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.”
And to anyone who says they hang out just because they've both had recent breakups, that's just "not what it's about". Sounds like a cool friendship, right!?!
Anyway, I think the message here is: who? Reckon is really over Somerhalder, even with their recent return to the set of The Vampire Diaries? Get in touch below!
