After the tragic death of Damon leaving Elena bereft in The Vampire Diaries finale, all eyes are turning back to Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's real life relationship.

There have been whispers in the wind that the pair have rekindled their romance for months, but rumor has it they are keeping it on the down low to prevent the constant intrusion of the press.

Who knows, maybe the emotional Damon death scene made them re-evaluate how important it is to be happy with the short lives us mere mortals have?

One of the most prevalent fan theories swirling around is that Ian Somerhalder asked to be written out of The Vampire Diaries so he could be in a purely romantic relationship with his beau. Somerhalder did in fact consider leaving the show, but producers stated a lack of challenge as the reason and reintroduced Enzo in a big way to give Damon something to sink his teeth into. Could it be that they have something to hide?

[The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) team has been working togther for over five years and they must be as close as family by now. And, it would be in the producers best interests to keep the stars of the show happy and well-motivated by shielding any romantic going ons from the press.

More outlandish chatter around the far-flung forums of the internet even suggest that Dobrev and Somerhalder are heading on a romantic summer tour of Europe, although I can find absolutely no evidence this is true.

When rumors like these surface about Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, I often think it stems from an inability to separate their real lives and on-screen passionate love affair. That being said, I can totally imagine these lovebirds getting back together.

Nina Dobrev's bubbly optimism and spirit just seems to slot right into the sometimes serious Somerhalder jigsaw puzzle. The vampiric hunk is so focused on his humanitarian work, that I get the impression he needs someone to remind him of the good things in life, and who better to do that than Nina?
