The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev Split — Who Should He Date Next? (PHOTOS)

Vampire Diaries co-stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev’s breakup is still a fresh wound, but it has actually been more than three months since the beloved couple split.

Given that they were together for three years, it will take some time for them to move on and start seeing other people — Nina recently revealed she’s not ready to date yet — though that doesn’t stop us from speculating who could be their next perfect match. (Well, almost perfect since no one can compare to Ian and Nina.)

While we’ll miss them dearly, we’ve selected a few familiar faces who could be the right woman to go to dinner with Ian, which is all he wants right now.

Maybe it’s time that Ian dates another Southerner. He’s from Covington, Louisiana, and the outspoken, fun-loving Jennifer is from Louisville, Kentucky. They can drink sweet tea together and watch cat videos on YouTube. Dream life, anyone?

Ian has always dated younger girls, so maybe it’s time he dates someone his age. Rachel McAdams is also newly single, and they are both environmentalists! She could impress him with her home, which is powered by renewable energy, and her former website,

This Pretty Little Liars star notoriously goes for older guys, and they can bond over their day jobs on teen dramas. They also have similar laid-back styles, which could make for some matchy paparazzi photos as they party at the Chateau Marmont.

Ian constantly tweets about New York, and Rosario happens to be an NYC native! She also supports many charities, including environmental group Global Cool and, which he would definitely appreciate given his support of environmental causes and It Gets Better.

OK, so maybe rebounding with Taylor Swift is a bad idea — if things go awry, he could have a song written about him — but she loves animals, which is a must for Ian. "I don't care how hot a girl is — if she doesn't like animals, it would be a major, major problem,” he told Cosmopolitan. Her Scottish Fold, Meredith Grey, would get along purrfectly with his Orange Tabby, Moke.
