Nina Dobrev wants a man who is intelligent, funny and talented.

The 'Vampire Diaries' actress - who split from her co-star Ian Somerhalder in May - prefers relationships to casual dating and enjoys getting to know someone properly before letting herself fall in love with him.

She said: ''You either have chemistry or you don't, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy's mind and humor and talent. 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.''

Nina, 24, is hoping to find someone who is chivalrous and gentleman-like.

She told the US edition of Cosmopolitan magazine: ''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.''

The screen beauty thinks men can look good while suited and booted and when they manage to look effortlessly sexy, but joked she isn't keen on having someone who is more vain than her.

She added: ''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 a problem!''
