There’s a lot to envy about Nina Dobrev: Her good looks, her charming personality (minus when she’s playing Katherine), the way her hair stays immaculate in the humid Georgia air. But perhaps what turns most of us a very dark shade of green is her on-screen romances with Paul Wesley (Stefan) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon). Hours upon hours alongside those two hotties? It’s all in a day’s work for Nina.

Between the four central characters on the show, there’s a lot (of love) going on, but it’s no lie that Elena and Damon are prob the least likely — but most obsessed-over — TVD couple. Elena is such a good girl, and Damon is such a bad boy, that the sexual chemistry between them is out of control. Really, it’s no wonder that everybody thinks it should be that way off-screen, too — Nina and Ian together would sure be a sight for sore eyes! Plus, with several exchanges of flirty Twitter messages and photos of the duo at various locales off hours (including that public kiss at the airport!), nobody is really sure what the two steamy stars are up to behind closed doors. (Though we do have a few guesses!)

But, brace yourself, ladies, Nina tells Teen Vogue she is not hooking up with Ian... at least for now. "We expected the rumors," she said. "Like, if I wasn't dating Ian, I'd be dating Paul." (Oh, the horror!) Still, Nina got our minds reeling when she made this little suggestive comment that maybe, one day, she’ll take one of her co-stars home: "A lot of people who work together end up dating, so it wouldn't be unusual, but I've never dated anyone I've worked with.”

We hate to put words in people’s mouths, but we’re pretty sure what she meant to say was, “I haven’t dated anyone I’ve worked with... yet.” Or are we just hoping this comes true? Okay, maybe.
