Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Are Totally Dating Again, Let Us Examine The Evidence

Ian & Nina
The couple's cutest photos.
Let me preface this post by saying that nothing has been confirmed by either Nina Dobrev nor Ian Somerhalder, and that all of this is totally a figment of my imagination. But let’s go with it.

Allow me to present to you all the evidence for my assumption that Ian and Nina are back together based on their appearance at last night’s People Choice Awards.

Exhibit A! An Instagram video that Ian posted, which can be viewed after the jump. 

If you watch the video you’ll see a split second of Nina coming to bite Ian while he films himself. Would you bite someone you’re not dating anymore?

Exhibit B! Ian and Nina won the award for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry for The Vampire Diaries (obviously) and as they went up to accept it, Ian held Nina’s had to make sure she didn’t trip on her heels. Would you do that for someone you’re not dating anymore? (Actually, Ian probably would cause he’s a gentleman.)

Exhibit C! Ian and Nina had some seriously cute on-stage banter, which obviously they had written and rehearsed. The banter culminated in them talking about how their characters hated each other, then started dating on-screen, then they started dating off-screen, then they broke up, but their characters are still dating on the show. Then they did this awesome “awkward” thing, which was followed up with IAN GIVING NINA A GIANT KISS THAT WAS LONG AND SLOPPY AND THEN HE KEPT HIS ARM ON HER WAIST BECAUSE THEY’RE IN LOVE.

OK, I think that this is all the evidence one needs. You can watch their super cute acceptance speech below. And now that I’m done in my Nina and Ian fantasy world, I’m gonna come back to reality. Maybe.

What do you guys think of my theory? Launch the gallery to check out even more evidence of their cuteness, then let me know if you think I’m crazy in the comments below. Or you can tell me I’m sane and agree with me. I prefer the latter.
