Shaun White and Nina Dobrev started dating in early 2020
Shaun White and Nina Dobrev got "creative" with their dates due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Shaun White, Olympic gold medalist snowboarder, who has been in a relationship with The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev since early 2020, spoke candidly in a rare interview about how dates amid the COVID-19 pandemic took a "creative" turn for the gorgeous couple. For Shaun and Nina, it was all about the "simple things" like "a couple of drive-in movies."

More importantly, since his sport of snowboarding is "outdoors," where you go to "the mountains" and are distanced already by chairlifts and things, the couple has "been able to do more snowboarding and trips like that than I would've expected." Given his world-class status as arguably the most famous snowboarder across the entire globe, White gave major props for his girlfriend's snowboarding skills. "She was pretty pro already. I don't know about the skateboarding front, but she grew up in Canada, so she's pretty talented on the snowboard," the 34-year-old athlete gushed about the 32-year-old actress.

We absolutely adore Shaun and Nina's adventurous, exciting relationship!

White had ambitious plans of recreating their first date, albeit everything was closed. However, like a knight in shining armour, Shaun was able to "sweet talk the owner of the place to open up" for the couple and their romantic anniversary celebrations was actually "pretty fun" as they had the place all to themselves.
