While balancing work and relationships might be a tough task for many, the star couple seems to do it effortlessly. White and Nina make for an incredibly compatible pair. Recently, in an interview for her Netflix Christmas rom-com, Love Hard, Nina shared a piece of dating advice she received from her mother.

According to her mother, one must choose their partner depending on the inner aspects, not the outer. Beauty might fade away, but truthfulness and honesty stay forever.

My mom told me once, ‘Beauty fades, but dumb is forever.’ If you’re with the wrong match, the beauty will be gone at some point, and then you’ll be stuck,” said the fan-favorite, Nina.

A match made in heaven 

Shaun White, too, revealed the importance Dobrev holds in his life. Nina’s arrival in White’s life has brought with it significant positive changes, which the snowboarder can never deny.

Nina’s incredible. What an influence on my life,” said the Olympic champion.
