Just a day after the new lovebirds were spotted kissing passionately and holding hands at a Comic-Con bash Saturday night, the Vampire Diaries star and his ladylove headed out for a romantic dinner date Sunday.
Nikki still had on the same black and white cropped top and high waist skirt ensemble she wore to the Young Hollywood Awards earlier that evening, while Ian opted for a V-neck gray shirt and jeans for their night out. According to E! Online, the duo grabbed a bite at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood.
Ian and Nikki have been spending quite a bit of time together since they sparked romance rumors after they were photographed canoodling at an L.A. farmer's market last week. While they were there, Ian was snapped nuzzling Nikki's neck as they shopped around. The pair reportedly "loves spending time together" and is "currently in the getting to know each other phase of their budding relationship."
Aside from getting to know each other romantically, Nikki and Ian have been friends for years, even going on double dates with their now exes Nina Dobrev and Paul McDonald just a couple of years ago. Don't worry too much about how Nina is taking their coupledom though. The Vampire Diaries starlet was spotted kissing Baby Daddy's Theler Smith last weekend, and getting cozy with Ben Mackenzie and Orlando Bloom as well at Comic-Con.
