The Vampire Diaires star Ian Somerhalder and Twilight Nikki Reed are showing their PDA and proclaiming undying love on every available platform of social media which is excessive even for a famewhore like Ian. At this point, it’s just getting obnoxious, and also… a little bit strange? When Ian first started dating Nina Dobrev, they both played it very close to the vest and refused to go public until several months into their relationship. But with Ian and Nikki, it’s like explosions of PDA and tweeting Twitter and Instagram messages, and basically every method that Ian can use to let the world know that he’s dating Nikki Reed.
At this rate, how much longer can Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed really last? They’re heading towards an implosion sooner rather than later, especially if this constant gushing keeps up speed. In fact, you know who they remind me of? Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in the early stages of their relationship – and we all know how that turned out, don’t we? Now, I wouldn’t put Nikki and Ian anywhere on their level just yet, but it’s getting there.
Plus, this excessive show of love could burn the relationship out real fast, and then Ian and Nina will be right back to where it started. There’ll be some awkward tension between them, they’ll avoid bumping into each other on the set of The Vampire Diaries, and then they’ll give in to their unresolved feelings and get back together – at least until Nina Dobrev dumps him again.
Right now, Ian and Nikki basically have all the feel of a revenge rebound, but without any of the lasting impact. The more they try to convince us of their live, the less I am actually convinced. Don’t you agree?
