Nothing's official unless Twitter says it is!
Thus, Nina Dobrev and boyfriend Austin Stowell are only now officially official.
The couple—who made their first, super hot red carpet appearance earlier this month—had no idea they weren't connected on social media until Tuesday (Oct. 20)…nearly four months after they first started dating!
Stowell went to check up on Dobrev's feed yesterday (you know, as a partner typically does) when he realized he had never followed her in the first place!
Posting a screenshot of the awkward realization, he wrote, "That awkward moment when you realize you don't follow your girlfriend on Twitter #socialmediaproblems @ninadobrev."
But don't worry! Dobrev didn't take offense to it because it turns out Stowell wasn't the only one lacking in the social media world…The 26-year-old actress wasn't following her beau either!
She took to Twitter to write, "That awkward moment when u realize ur not following him either&gotta do it realfast b4 he realizes." LOL!
Luckily, the two made some reciprocal moves and fixed the dilemma. They're both following each other on Twitter now, which means we can actually consider them a serious couple…Phew!
Meanwhile, Dobrev and Stowell were first connected in June after being spotted kissing while out and about in West Hollywood. Since then, the duo has taken several trips together, packing on the PDA in places like New York and even St. Tropez!
After they attended Eli Mizrahi's Founding Member dinner launch party during New York Fashion Week last month, a source told E! News, "You can tell how much they love each other just by the way they speak and their mannerisms toward one another. Austin is such a gentleman and treats Nina with such respect."
They proved that statement when they took things a bit further last week, hitting the red carpet together for the first time at the premiere of Stowell's new movie, Bridge of Spies, during the New York Film Festival.
