‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 6: Nina Dobrev on dating rumors, new hopes

The latest -Mrs. Carter: Is Nina Dobrev in a long-term relationship?

The answer to that is “hardly,” and also “no” when it comes to whether or not she’s really dating someone specific at all. Maybe it’s because she hangs out at popular hotspots, or maybe it’s just because she is a young actress on a popular show like “The Vampire Diaries,” but people are constantly curious about who she is dating. It was not that long ago when we first heard her attached to a number of different people, but it turns out that few of the rumors were actually true.

As a part of her current promotional tour for new movie “Let’s Be Cops,” Nina was on HuffPost Live earlier in the week, and she explained that maybe she needs to get a long-term boyfriend, simply so that she doesn’t have to deal with the rumors that surface anytime she talks with someone of the opposite sex:

“It is funny ’cause I try not to read any of that kind of stuff, but when you start getting text messages from your friends with a link to something and they’ll be like, ‘Oh my God, are you really dating this person!’ and I’ll be like, ‘Um, I talked to him last night for a second,’ or, ‘Yeah, I saw him at this party,’ and all the sudden you’re dating somebody … Especially after Comic-Con, apparently, I was dating like 10 people. I had a busy weekend.”

What we do know relationship-wise is that Nina’s ex Ian Somerhalder has been romantically linked lately to Nikki Reed, which is interesting given that it is the “Twilight” and “Vampire Diaries” worlds colliding.
