Nina Dobrev
is single and ready to mingle ... that is, with the right guy!

The "Vampire Diaries" star graces the September cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, where she opens up about her friendship with Julianne Hough and reveals what kind of guy she's attracted to.

Nina, who called it quits with costar Ian Somerhalder in May, has been enjoying the single life with her gal pal and fellow newly single starlet, Julianne.

But just because both girls are going through a breakup, that's not all they talk about.

"That’s not what our friendship is about. Unfortunately, that’s how it’s perceived, but there’s more to us. People aren’t defined by their relationships," she explains. "The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships."

When is comes to what the 24-year-old looks for in a guy, it all comes down to chemistry.

"You either have chemistry or you don’t, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy’s mind and humor and talent," she says. "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."

"I’m progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others. I like it when guys hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful. The guys on our show are really good at that," she adds. "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!
