If you are a fan of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, then you can definitely back up the point that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were undoubtedly the most amazing couple on-screen as well as off-screen. There is no argument about the fact that these actors showed outstanding chemistry on their TV show as well as made the audiences happy when they announced their relationship.
We couldn’t have been happier for the couple when they announced in 2011 that they were dating. The off-screen edition of romance was the example for young couples. All was well for the happy couple till the year 2013 came and they broke up, shocking the entire Hollywood industry and the fans.
Why Exactly Did They breakup?
Well, there could be many reasons for Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder’s breakup. For those who need to have an answer to that, here are some of the main reasons why Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder broke up.
Age Could’ve Been A Factor
Most people feel that age cannot be a factor that measures love. But then, that is certainly not the case with Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. The couple, however happy they may seem, had an age difference that most people didn’t notice. It is said that Nina Dobrev was apparently 24 when they broke up and Ian was close to 34. A 10-year age gap has got to have some effect right?
Nina Was Not Ready To Take The Big Step
It is true that after some time passes into a relationship, people start to think of their partner as ‘The One’. That is exactly what happened with Ian Somerhalder. After a significant period of time in their relationship, Ian started to talk a lot more about marriage and Nina was just not ready to settle with a family. That might have been a reason for some problems between the couple.
There Was NO Romance Left
Ian and Nina were one of the most beautiful couples in the industry. They cared about each other a lot and still do. But then, that doesn’t mean that they had to be romantically on the same page. Well, reports stated that after a long time, they really grew apart in their relationship. Now that is something that is heart-breaking, right?
Dating A Co-Star Is Tough
Well, that’s true in any case, not just acting. People in work often meet each other and tend to come in a relationship after falling in love. While most stories turn out to have happy endings, some don’t. Nina and Ian’s relationship was one of them. Dating a co-star, according to the couple, is really very tough. Balancing work and romance is not a cup of tea for everyone, right? Probably this was the reason why the couple ended up splitting.
Ian Was Perfectly ready For Settling Down
Ian Somerhalder was totally ready for settling down with a family. It was evident when after the breakup, Ian started to date actress Nicki Reed and the couple didn’t waste any time and tied the knot soon after. While Nina Dobrev commented really great things about Ian, we cannot help but wonder whether this was the reason why they broke up.
