Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev may have arrived separately and opted out of posing together on the red carpet when the actor hosted The Influence Affair, an environmental benefit, but that didn’t mean the clandestine couple were going to stay apart for long. “They sat together at dinner and when Ian noticed Nina was shivering, he offered her his blazer to help keep her warm,” an onlooker told People. “There was no overt PDA, but there was a certain lovey way about how they looked at each other.” The couple was also spotted holding hands while privately touring the mansion where the event was held. “They seemed very close and comfortable together,” the source said.

What are some ways to subtly show your partner you care in public?

Cupid’s Advice:

Okay, so maybe you and your mate are a bit on the discreet side, but that doesn’t mean you have to act as though you don’t know each other when you’re out in public. Here are some subtle ways to delicately show affection to your lover when other eyes can see:

1. Hold hands: This is one of the most subtle and obvious ways to show everyone that you are holding onto one of the most important people in your life. It’s intimate enough to show your partner affection and declare your relationship status.

2. Hugging: Sure, it’s a common way to show affection to anyone, but, you can’t hug everyone like you would with your love.

3. Kissing: You don’t have to have a full blown make-out session with your partner to show the world how you feel about each other. A simple kiss on the lips, cheek or forehead can say a lot.
