Nina Dobrev tested Ian Somerhalder early on in their romance to see if he was fit relationship material. How did the Vampire Diaries hunk hold up?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Ian clearly passed the test, because he and Nina have been a couple for quite some time now. But what exactly did she put him through to prove he was the man for her?
"He has to be a happy person. You'll laugh and enjoy life more," Nina says of any man with whom she'd ever consider having a relationship with.
Ian Somerhalder definitely fits the bill, and the two seem very happy together. Nina even admits he is extremely helpful to her when she's under a great deal of stress.
"I think people should be with the person who makes them smile. The minute you're not smiling anymore, you shouldn't be in the relationship. That's what you figure out by having good or bad experiences with boyfriends and finding out what qualities you like and don't like in a person. It's part of growing up and learning. You should always be with the people who make you feel happiest," she says.
Do you see Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder as a long-time couple? Might there even be a marriage in the future for The Vampire Diaries stars?
Ian would likely have Nina laughing and smiling her way to the altarÂ—but maybe they have lots more they want to do before committing to a wedding. At least in the meantime they make each other very happy.
