Nina Dobrev is single and ready to mingle. The ‘Vampire Diaries’ stunner showed off plenty of hot PDA with ‘Baby Daddy’ star, Derek Theller, and flirted with Ben McKenzie at Comic-Con, but is she ready to start dating? HollywoodLife.com has all the exclusive details!
Ian Somerhalder, 35, wasn’t the only one getting his flirt on at Comin-Con. His gorgeous ex, Nina Dobrev, 25, was spotted getting cozy and hanging out with some of Hollywood’s sexiest bachelors. HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively about Nina’s true feelings for Ian, and if she is finally ready to move on.
Nina Dobrev: Is She Ready To Date Again?
Nina is a wanted women! The talented actress was spotted out with not one, but three sexy men while at Comic-Con. First, on July 25, she was seen arm-in-arm with everyone’s favorite elf, Orlando Bloom, 37.
The very next day, Nina was seen embracing Gotham actor, Ben McKenzie, 35. The two looked extremely comfortable together and Nina was even clutching on to his back looking like she didn’t want the embrace to end — we can’t say that we blame her!
While Nina seems to be ready to jump back into the dating pool, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she is taking her time. “She is not actively pursuing one but she is open minded about it and would start one if she found the right situation. She deals with stuff like that like everyone else, it will happen when it happens.”
Ian and Nina secretly dated for two years before breaking up a year ago in 2013. The notoriously private couple may be done, but a source tells us that Nina will always have feelings for her costar.
“She is over him to the point that she doesn’t have to date him ever again, but she will always love him. She can’t hate him because that would make things weird on the show and would make so many things go into shambles, she knows that she can’t be unprofessional,” our source tells us. “There is hundreds of people that make a living off the show and she doesn’t want to be known as the person who ruined it. It will be interesting to see where their friendship goes when the show ends but they are over as a couple and she is dealing with it the best way she can.”
Nina & Ian’s “Awkward” Comic-Con
While the couple may have broken up over a year ago, and work with each other on Vampire Diaries, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t like everyone else, and have to deal with the dreaded awkward run-ins with you ex.
While the ex’s were doing a cast signing at Comic-Con, the two had a bit of an awkward run-in. Luckily, they didn’t have to sit next to each other and were placed on either side of, Paul Wesley, 32. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Nina didn’t stick around with the rest of the cast before the panel, our source tells us. “As soon as the signing ended, Nina was whisked away solo.” — Awkward!
We are sure that these two will figure it out since they have successfully worked together for years. We think it is great that Nina is not actively searching for love, but is open for it if it does happen to come her way — we are sure she will find true love very soon!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Nina is ready to move on? Is Nina completely over Ian?
