"Walls are excellent to hit, because sometimes they force you to find a way to lace up some rock climbing shoes and work your way over them." -Ian Somerhalder about ISF
Ian dated his co-star, Nina Dobrev, for almost two years, but they broke up last year because he wanted to get married. Nina is over ten years younger than him, so she wasn't ready. He's now dating Nikki Reed, and she's a lot closer to his age.
