Attention, guys! If you want to date Nina Dobrev, you'd better be smart, funny and not too vain.
Speaking to September's Cosmopolitan (on sale Aug. 13), Dobrev talks about what she looks for in a man and explains that she prefers relationships to casual dating.
"You either have chemistry or you don't, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy's mind and humor and talent," says the Vampire Diaries star, 24. "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."
We know, we know: The #greatkatewait had you sitting on the edge of your beach chair.
But if you were busy soaking up some rays – or, equally likely, picking out a onesie for the royal baby – here are five things you might have missed this weekend:
It's been nearly a month since her fiancé popped the question, but bride-to-be Candice Accola is still basking in newly-engaged bliss.
"I can't even think about [the wedding] yet," the Vampire Diaries star, 26, told PEOPLE at Midori's Happy Hour Style Event Thursday evening at The London. "We're just enjoying the engagement with our friends and family right now."
Accola, who is the new face of the melon liqueur brand, met fiancé Joseph King (guitarist for the band The Fray) two years ago at a Superbowl event – but she was too shy initially to make a move.
This vampire's found eternal love!
Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola, 26, announced her engagement Wednesday to Joseph Aaron King on her Instagram account, captioning a blissful photo of the couple "Cheers from the future Mr.&Mrs. Joseph Aaron King."
King, 33, who is the guitarist for rock band The Fray, himself showed off a picture of his new fiancée with her engagement bling on his own Instagram account, captioning the photo "I'm a lucky man."
There doesn't appear to be too public much information behind why Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev split after several years, but a cryptic Tweet may give fans some insight.
Just before a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the Vampire Diaries stars called it quits, Somerhalder, 34, Tweeted, "A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: People change and forget to tell each other. -Lillian Hellman, playwright (1905-1984)."
Vampire Diaries costars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have called it quits after dating for several years, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple were last seen taking a late-night trip to a cat hospital together last month, with no sign then that their own relationship may have been hurting.
Somerhalder, 34, and Dobrev, 24, kept their romance secret during their early days as a couple, despite evidence that they were together.
Temptation is tough – just ask Nina Dobrev.
The Vampire Diaries star, 23, went into filming CW's hit series with every intention of keeping things strictly business. Instead, she ended up with a boyfriend: costar Ian Somerhalder, 33.
"The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said, 'Nina: Why she wouldn't date any of her costars,' " she recalls to the magazine in its October issue. "And then cut to two years later ... it's funny that I said that."
Gearing up for Mother's Day on Sunday, Nina Dobrev and her mom Michaela paired up for Got Milk?'s latest ad.
Posing with the campaign's signature white mustache, the mother-daughter duo are showing off their pearly whites in a kitchen, while surrounded by blueberry pancakes.
The photo is part of the "Like Her, Like Me," program launch, which celebrates the power of positive influence and special moments shared by mothers and daughters.
How did Ian Somerhalder spend his birthday?
"I was naked with a beautiful girl all day," the star of The Vampire Diaries, who turned 32 on Dec. 8, tells PEOPLE. "I had a shower scene that led into another scene were I was kind of half-naked and wet."
Though Somerhalder does confirm he was on the set of his hit CW show, he wouldn't say whether his character, the scumbag vampire Damon, finally scored with Elena, who is played by Nina Dobrev and definitely qualifies as a beautiful girl.
"Damon has a long way to go," he says of conquering Elena. "He tried to kill her brother."
Is there a new bad guy in Mystic Falls?
On the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, fans learned that seemingly good guy Mason actually returned to his hometown at the request of evil Katherine – his girlfriend! – to track down the Lockwood family's secret. But Mason's no bad villain, says actor Taylor Kinney, just a man in love.
"I don't think he's a bad person," Kinney, 29, tells PEOPLE. "[Mason] is motivated by a love for a girl, and it makes you do bad things, [but] I don't think that Mason thinks he's a bad person."
Mason's arrival in Mystic Falls also marked a new chapter on the show – the introduction of werewolves.
"I just jump at the chance to play a werewolf," Kinney said, even though the role required shooting a nearly-nude scene that marked Mason's shape-shifting reveal.
