Derek Hough and Nina Dobrev (AKM-GSI)

Feel that? Yep, that's the hint of love in the air.

New couple Derek Hough and Nina Dobrev were photographed together for the first time since news broke that they are dating. The sighting took place Saturday night outside the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The 28-year-old "Dancing With the Stars" fave and the "Vampire Diaries" actress, 24, were casually dressed in jeans for their evening out. They were definitely camera-shy though. When a photographer pointed and clicked, they quickly scattered though reunited soon after.

Their date capped off a busy day for the duo. They hit up Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood earlier in the evening with a posse that included his sister and her pal Julianne Hough (who reportedly did some matchmaking), Lily Collins, and Selena Gomez.

Hough and Dobrev were first linked last month with a source telling Us Weekly, "[Nina] was hanging a lot with Derek's sister Julianne. Then she fell for him."

Dobrev, who dated her "Vampire Diaries" co-star Ian Somerhalder for three years before splitting in May, shared her relationship dos and don'ts in Cosmopolitan over the summer.

"You either have chemistry or you don't, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy's mind and humor and talent. I need to get to know all those things before I fall for someone," she said. "I'm not a one-night-stand kind of girl. I'm a relationship girl.

"I'm progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others," she continued. "I like it when guys hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful. A man in a suit looking put together and dapper is very attractive, but I also kind of like the I-just-rolled-out-of-bed, a-little-bit-of-scruff, effortless, not-trying-hard-but-still-sexy guy."

Hough with his "I-just-rolled-out-of-bed, a-little-bit-of-scruff" look going on, certainly seems to fit her description, don't ya think?
