On “The Vampire Diaries” this season, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have certainly spent a good bit more time together courtesy of the sire bond that has changed Elena’s relationship with Damon in a very profound way. The two are physically closer than ever, but Damon still feels an incredible amount of sorrow over it courtesy of one simple fact: he knows that in her heart Elena is not in full control of her actions, and with that in mind he does not necessarily want everything that is being presented to him.
Thankfully, it looks as though the real-life relationship between the two actors is going on without so many bumps in the road. Earlier this week, both Nina and Ian were spotted taking part in a similar tradition to what millions of Americans go through on a regular basis: picking up a Christmas tree. Are they planning to stay in Atlanta (where the show films) for the entirety of the holiday? That much is not currently clear, but these actions do ultimately suggest that they are going to make sure to be in the holiday spirit for at least the time that they are in town.
Even though these two have been together now for over a year, they have also achieved a rare feat in continuing to keep their relationship private. They still have not even confirmed that they are together, let alone that their relationship is serious, let alone that they are picking up Christmas trees together.
Do you think these two should just open up publicly about their relationship at this point, or do you think that it is better for each of them to maintain some element of privacy?
