For when you need to continue birthday ogling.
OK, well I guess at this point they’re more than just rumors. Everyone has pretty much confirmed that yes, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are dating.

I mean, after that display they put on at the farmers’ market how could they not be? Despite having a significant other again, Ian was all by his lonesome yesterday as he made his way through LAX.

I assume he was on his way to Comic-Con for The Vampire Diaries panel on Saturday, but why is he flying? There are flights from from LA to San Diego?

You know what, I’ll look that up later. Anyway, back to Ian and Nikki. If you follow Ian’s ex and Nikki’s friend Nina Dobrev on Instagram, then I’m sure you’ve seen the slew of cryptic photo messages she’s been sharing. I mean, it could all be nothing, but it’s interesting to muse on.

This next bit though, I can’t find any concrete proof for, other than a few articles, so take it with a grain of salt. Some outlets are reporting that Ian was so fed up with all the rumors about him and Nikki that he took to Instagram and wrote:

“Ummm, everyone- I hate to break it to you but… You have zero clue what really goes on in other peoples’ lives. It does you or anyone else any good at all to project negative energy out there. There is no harm here, I ask you to back off with your negativity, focus that energy elsewhere In a positive manner and let people live their lives. It’s only fair. Thank you and good night.”

Apparently he deleted this quickly after posting it, so if you or someone you know screenshotted it, sent it my way! It does sound like something Ian would say though. Hmm. Guess we’ll just have to wait until we do know what’s going on in their lives. If they share, of course.

But until then, launch the gallery to stare at some cute Ian. His shirt is so beige that in the right lighting he totally looks shirtless. Enjoy the non-shirtlessness and tell us what you think of Ian and Nikki (Nikkian? Ianikki?) in the comments below.
