"Eventually I am going to marry and have a family but not anytime soon," the 23-year-old "Vampire Diaries" actress revealed in the September issue of FASHION magazine. "I'm not going to pull a Miley."
Dobrev is referring to 19-year old actress and singer Miley Cyrus, who this past June got engaged to her 22-year-old "Last Song" co-star Liam Hemsworth.
While Dobrev's comment about Cyrus was likely a light hearted joke, the actress is bound to be getting tired over denying the engagement rumors.
According to the New York Daily News, the "Vampire Diaries" co-stars have been dating since 2010, but have been getting hounded by reports of an engagement since this past January.
"There is no truth to this item at all," a rep for Nina Dobrev told Us Weekly at the beginning of the year. "There was no proposal."
"I'm a career woman and a young, very driven woman and I've got a lot I have to accomplish before I settle down and have kids and do any of that," Dobrev told Access Hollywood in January.
While an engagement for Dobrev and Somerhalder, 33, might not be on the horizon, the two certainly seem to enjoy each other's company, being photographed at Coachella and caught canoodling at Comic-Con.
"He always has a positive outlook and positive energy, and he's always happy," Dobrev has said of Somerhalder. He is a glass half-full kind of guy, not half-empty."
"Vampire Diaries" fans can watch Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder heat up on screen when the CW series returns for its fourth season on Oct. 11. Don't expect the pair to get along as great on-screen as they do off-screen. While Elena will remember moments with Damon that he previously compelled her to forget, Damon isn't ready to forgive her for choosing Stefan before she died.
Executive producer Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly that when it comes to Damon's rejection he's feeling like "'Yep, well, that's in the past. That was then, this is now. You made your choice.'"
"Damon's not going to be sitting around moping, that's for sure. He's going to have a little bit of a 'tude probably," Plec continued.
