Nina Dobrev wouldn’t date a vain guy.
The actress is currently thought to be single after splitting with her The Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder in May.
While she might not have her eye on anyone in particular, the 24-year-old brunette revealed what she’s looking for in a date and what turns her off.
“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,” she smiled to the US edition of Cosmopolitan.
“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!”
Nina and Ian had been dating since September 2011 but parted ways amicably earlier this year.
While she’s now technically free and single, fans won’t find Nina picking up men in clubs.
“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,” she assured the magazine.
The star is close friends with Safe Haven actress Julianne Hough.
Julianne split from her boyfriend of three years, Ryan Seacrest, in March, but the girls rarely speak about their romantic pasts.
“It’s been cool to find an active buddy – there are lots of girlie girls around. We don’t talk about make-up; we talk about life,” Nina said, adding when asked if it’s nice to have a friend who’s also gone through a break-up: “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.”
