6. THEIR REAL LIFE ROMANCE
The chemistry of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev was unbelievable on the screen, their romance soon extended beyond the sets and they started dating in real life too. The couple began dating in 2010 and then moved in together. However, their romance didn’t last long as the couple parted ways in 2013. Ian who played Damon went on to marry the Twilight actress Nikki Reed and Nina Dobrev started dating Shaun White. There are various rumored reasons as to why they broke up. Some suggest it was due to their 10-year age gap.
Some suggest that Ian wanted to get married, but Nina wasn’t at that point in her life, she wanted to experience other things for her future. Ian Somerhalder got engaged to Nikki Reed only six months after they first started seeing each other. Ian and Nikki got married in 2015 and welcomed their kid in 2017. Maybe Nina wasn’t ready to settle at that point. However, their connection was genuine as Nina had a no-dating the co-star policy, but she couldn’t help it with Ian as she felt genuinely drawn to him. The two have remained close since their breakup. Nina revealed in an interview that she will always care for Ian.
5. NEVER LIED OR BROKEN A PROMISE
Damon is the perfect boyfriend for numerous reasons. One such reason is that he has never broken a promise that he made to Elena. However, in Season 5 finale ‘Home’, he made a promise to come back to Elena, but he couldn’t as the Other Side was destroyed. However, he fulfilled his promise when he returned from the Prison World to her in the Season 6 episode ‘The World Has Turned And Left Me Here’.
Damon has also never lied to Elena until the episode ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’. As Elena has been under a compulsion which stripped away her memories of Damon. In Season 6 Episode 7, Elena experiences flashes of her time with Damon, she retains the memory of them together at the lake where they went to witness the meteor shower, but were caught in the heavy rainstorm. When Elena asked Damon what happened next, he lied by telling her that they both were cold and feeling miserable so they left. However, they both kissed in the rain and Elena promised Damon that their relationship will last forever.
