Generously signing autographs for throngs of fans, Nina Dobrev made a scheduled appearance at a Barnes & Noble in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday (September 15).

The “Perks of Being a Wallflower” star dutifully inked copies of her October Seventeen magazine cover issue while clad in a pretty black floral print pantsuit.

n the issue, Miss Dobrev opens up about her love life and falling for costar Ian Somerhalder, saying, “Sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long. I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars – my goal on the show was to be professional.”

However, the “Vampire Diaries” darling cast her fears aside and started quietly seeing the 33-year-old in 2010. According to the 23-year-old, their romance is still going strong.
