Wow. The comments from the SE fans are incredibly immature. If you think that Stefan and Elena are “true love” you have a lot to learn. Yes Damon and Elena have sexual tension, they have chemistry, but its very unfair to say that’s all the have. True that this season has made their relationship a one-sided affair, and Elena is showing NO true feelings for Damon, but up until this horrible season, we’ve seen Damon and Elena change and understand each other. He’s protected her, turned his humanity on for her, almost died countless times, and been the bad guy for Stefan so that Elena could be with him. So don’t you dare say that Damon isn’t a fascinating and incredible character. If anyone on this show deserves some happiness its Damon! The guy has lost everyone that he’s ever cared about and had his heart broken more times than Rebekkah.
Elena is the horrible one. She continues to depend on Damon as if she wasn’t responsible for breaking his heart and continually thrashing his feelings. I’m surprised he hasn’t turned his humanity off.
And then we have Stefan on the other side, doing his sensitive and puppy dog look, hugging and NOT helping Elena. Instead of listening to her, he keeps forcing his beliefs on her. He should understand that the bunny diet doesn’t work, even Caroline drinks human blood, EVERY vampire does. And then we see how manipulative Stefan is and no one thinks twice about how wrong that is.
Stelena fans can have the show. I’m sick of having to watch each episode and be disappointed. No one on the show or apparently in the writers room, sees how incredible Damon is and how he deserves so much better.
This pathetic high school love that Stefan and Elena share is not worth watching. If that is supposed to be “epic love” then I feel sorry for them.
Johnny Depp said it best “if you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.”

Some of the SE comments are from the same person, you can tell by the way they write with the exclamation mark placements.

I think your right. This article was written expressly to show how manipulative the show is being in regards to Damon. Apparently its working on some people.

Totally agree. Elena is still and will be in denial about who she is becoming and what she wants. Which is obviously Damon! She was having fun at the party, real fun. She didn’t plan to dance with damon like that, or heat it up it just happened because deep down she wants to but she’s holding back bc of the choice she made a couple of weeks ago, to choose stefan. As I say my fellow DE’rs, our time will come!!! We’ll see that damon is elena’s one true vampire love.

You should be with someone that makes you happy…

Damon puts a smile on Elena’s face, she’s carefree, she acts her age when she’s with him.
Stefan has her brooding, questioning every decision she makes, and basically self-hating.

Life sucks as it is, you don’t need to be with someone who constantly likes to remind you of that sad reality!

I think its just like you said here Andy! I only have one thing to add; if Elena keeps up this behavior… Shouldn’t Damon save his attention for someone who appreciates it more and wants to be a Vampire with him?…

So she fed from Damon, so what, she was starving, she couldn’t focus on it being right or wrong. At the end of the day, Damon wasn’t chosen; he needs to have some pride and reject her for a change. Stefan needs to vamp-sex Elena (no more C-block as it appears on the show) and blood-share with her to show her why it’s so important to him; and, Stef needs to stop letting Elena off the hook (pls stop the whining at least) when it comes to Damon and how she ends up hurting them both. Then again, it’s a TV show that wants to last a couple more years. They have to string us along. And why all the hubbub about there being a cure? Shouldn’t be a surprise really. Esther said she was going to change her children back to human before she would kill them. Why didn’t that storyline get pursued by Ms. Bennet…Ah, yes, back to this being a TV show that wants to last a long time… ;-)

Damon doesn’t understand Elena? R u serious. He is trying to help her learn control n accept who she is rather than feel guilty n take the pressure of the whole world on her shoulders. Until Elena doesn’t get familiar with her killing instincts, she can’t learn how to control them. She is scared n panic stricken right now at the idea of her new life, but she doesn’t need false promises like Stefan is giving her, she needs a realistic n rational approach that only Damon has. Stefan is holding Elena back from her true self ‘her being a vampire’, he is taking her on the journey of denial with him n that is not going to last. And Andy I don’t know y u think Damon is being painted wrongly, because the writers r actually making him Elena real savior and no I don’t think Elena is coming b/w the brothers. She is confused, her mind is wrapped up in multiple things right now, I believe she deep down knows she’s more like Damon but her friends judging her is just making it worse for her. I think v all need to give Elena sometime to evaluate her situation. DE FOREVER <3

I want Elena with Damon.When she is with him she is having fun.Stefan is stopping Elena to be true vampire becouse Stefan can’t be real one, either he is reeper or brooding eating bunny vamp.Damon can control his vampire nature, and I love his speech to Bonny and Elena.I hate that show always make Damon bad guy and wrong influence on Elena and always forget Stefan past.He help Elena not to become Stefan.Delena relationship is entertaining to watch and chemistry between Ian and Nina is amazing.

SE are not really a harmonious couple. They’ve broken up several times and hardly any of them were of Damon’s doing. SE keep secrets from each other, relationship imploding secrets…

Harmonious? Not likely. Season 1 was more breaking up then being together. Season 2 more breaking up and getting together. Season 3 was broken up and oh yes, Stefan almost driving her off a bridge. Not sure what kind of harmony is in that relationship…..

THANK YOU for this article!!! Completely agree with you Andy! I usually love and support Elena but she has gotten on my nerves. If she chose Stefan, she should leave Damon alone!! He deserves happiness :’(

Honestly, I think Stefan’s to blame for a lot Elena’s behavior. He exhibits many of the signs of an emotionally abusive boyfriend (throwing her against a wall when he was mad in S1, almost driving her off a bridge in S3, blaming her for not telling him about her problems feeding…when she actually did but he was too ready to celebrate wit champagne to listen). Elena’s spent so much time with him controlling her behavior that SHE doesn’t know what she wants any longer.

The guy won’t even support her learning to feed without killing someone – even when he knows it’s the only way she can eat – without giving her a guilt trip first. Of COURSE she backpedals when she sees Bonnie glaring at her.

Elena’s scared of admitting what she feels/wants because she’s been trained to believe that Stefan’s right.

Exactly… Elena’s been living in a bubble… I’m not sure if it’s ever gonna pop.
She’s afraid to admit anything for Damon because she’ll be judged for it. Yet, it okay to walk all over him and crush his heart to bits… because she takes Damon and his love for granted. because no matter what she does Damon’ll never judge her and never stop loving her. =(

That’s so true.
You should be with a person that challenges you, understands you and will be there to listen to your needs. But that person also can’t be a whipping boy for you. Stefan agrees with everything Elena wants, what kind of boyfriend is that? Neither of them are being real with each other.
God forbid that Elena actually stand up for Damon. She’ll only admit to him that he’s right but not to Stefan.
Ugh.
And I also don’t like how there is a GIANT plot hole with Elena’s feeding. Katherine was the first doppleganger and she has no problems drinking from blood bags!! So what gives with Elena? I guess the writers don’t care about consistency. Or its just their way of conveniently forcing Elena to drink from humans and thus keep Damon around to help her.
The other giant plot hole, is how Elena feels towards Damon. If everything is heightened, then why is Elena being so distant and cold towards him? Shouldn’t her feelings go from “like” to “love”, shouln’t that “he consumes me” lead her to an all out passionate assault? Where are those feelings Elena? She loves Stefan, fine. But she also feels something for Damon, and that “something” should be a lot more than a fading look his way.

Amen, Andy. I could excuse her treatment of them both before season 3, when her feelings genuinely changed and when Damon’s feelings for her were laid out before her so she couldn’t deny them (like she could in S1 & 2). Now that she has this information, she knows exactly how much she’s teasing Damon, and how much she’s stringing Stefan along in the meantime.

Transition, shamansition. The show keeps harping on the fact that Elena’s greatest gift to mankind is her compassion, but she seems to forget that she has that with regard to both of the brothers, but mostly Damon. She said in the S3 finale that she had to let him go, so she should.

At the same time, Damon needs to legitimately try to cut ties himself. She needs to know what it’s like NOT to have him at her beckon call. Right now, she takes him for granted and takes advantage of him.

And heck, she stood up for him more when he really was WAY more morally gray in S1/2. Since S3 started, he’s done nothing but support and help her, and she treats him worse now than ever before. I don’t get what the writers are doing. It doesn’t really make sense.

She’s been leading Damon since the show started. I’m so sick of this storyline. If Julie isn’t going to put them together than enough is enough. Let Damon find someone who will actually love him. As a huge Team Damon player, I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.
