It’s funny how in this internet era, if a couple isn’t tweeting and photo-bombing Instagram then fans quickly jump to the conclusion that they have split up. After months of working and traveling together it looks like Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have been apart a bit lately. He seems to be crawling into bed alone while Nina has tweeted about visiting with family. Time apart has led to speculation that maybe they’ve split.
I’m going to challenge that notion and instead remind readers that this couple dated on the DL for over a year and until recently they chose to keep things very private. As she was prepping for an Oscar party Nina had tweeted that it was turning into a once in a lifetime day, which led some fans to wonder if the couple had gotten engaged. Surely Nina will hit more Oscar parties, but a proposal from Ian- that would be a once in a lifetime kind of thing, right?
If Ian and Nina are engaged you can bet they would keep it quiet and probably make it almost look like they’ve split in order to throw people off. They value their face time and privacy. No doubt they would want to enjoy being engaged before announcing it to the world.
Do you think that trouble is brewing for The Vampire Diaries stars, or are they just not forgetting to pay attention to the other parts of their lives too? You know, the ones that involve individual work appearances and visiting family? Do you think that the couple is keeping a big secret that involves a ring and proposal? Could you see Nina and Ian actually walking down the aisle? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
