Though she may have split from co-star and longtime boyfriend Ian Somerhalder earlier this year, Nina Dobrev isn’t look for a rebound.
The Vampire Diaries star graces the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s September 2013 issue, telling the publication that she’s “I’m progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others.”
“You either have chemistry or you don’t, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy’s mind and humor and talent,” the actress, who parted ways with Somerhalder after three years of dating, says.
“I need to get to know all those things before I fall for someone,” she adds. “I’m not a one-night-stand kind of girl.”
According to the 24-year-old, she likes men who “hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful.”
“The guys on our show are really good at that,” she continues. “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!”
And it certainly looks like single life is treating her well. Despite the breakup, Dobrev and Somerhalder are still on good terms and recently made an appearance together at the CW Upfronts and Vampire Diaries‘ Comic-Con panel.
