Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev's Breakup Couldn’t Come at a Better Time

ian somerhalderGood news for those of you in love with Ian Somerhalder; bad news for those of you in love with Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev as a couple. After over three years of dating, Ian and Nina have broken up. Moment of silence. Okay, now quietly rejoice.

The couple, who met on the set of The Vampire Diaries, first went public with their relationship in 2011, and although they've decided to part sexy ways, Ian and Nina "will continue to  remain best friends, which is where the relationship started." Yeah. Okay. Sure they will.

It's always a bummer when couples who seem to be the real deal break up. I, like many, though Ian and Nina really were in it for the long haul. They appeared to be super into each other and down to earth. But general sadness aside, can we just take a moment to digest the fact that "Oh, my God! Christian Grey is single!!!"

More From Our Partners: Ian Somerhalder Knew The Breakup Was Coming All Along

No, Ian hasn't officially been cast in Fifty Shades of Grey, but come on. If he's not, what are we all doing on this planet? Why are we living? He is Christian Grey. And a single Christian Grey is much hotter than a Christian Grey with a hot, raven-haired girlfriend.

I'm sure these two will have no problems moving on and finding love elsewhere -- as they should. But for the time being, a single Ian wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

What do you think of Ian and Nina's breakup?

hello... hellokd87

So does that mean he accepted or is seriously considering the role? Didn't she give him an ultimatum regarding that issue?!

Debbie Brown

So sad :( they were such a beautiful couple

Brenda Creswell

My daughter and I were lucky enough to meet him in Vegas with the rest of the cast and he was the most amazing sweet heart. It's sad to see such a beautiful couple break up. Then again no one knows what the future holds. I hope they can remain friends and we never know in the future they may have a second chance.

.Didd... .Diddles.

I was rooting for them even though I wish Ian would come my way :)

Brandi Love

This is a rumor, people. 

"Ian and Nina are still together. 

First, US weekly is the first called they split. And it’s NOT a valid source. And PEOPLE next called it just because other gossip website posted it. If you watched The Newsroom, you would understand.

Second, few days ago when Ian was in China, he still talked about his solid relationship with NINA." - niansomerhalder (on tumblr)

Brandi, you are right! They have not split, they have just taken some time apart to do their own things. Just because a couple is NOT together 24/7 does not mean they split!!! geeze people

Jamie Pennino-Cirillo

I still think of Henry Cavill as Christian!!!! Ian is Damon all the way!

Sally Schell

i think it sucks they were perfect together and it added to the suspense in vampire diaries it was kinda what i watched it for it was romantic ... the bad guy gets the good girl but oh well maybe wont watch much more cause it seems like its a differant storyline now not as good //

Angie Burns

I still don't want to see him play Christian Grey!!!
