Charlize Theron What could be hotter than two supernaturally attractive, talented actors getting together? Ian needs to strike while the iron is hot for this one. The South African beauty split from actor beau Stuart Townsend a year ago, but we have a feeling the gorgeous activist won’t stay single for much longer. And after a parade of younger ladies, Ian could do with a little not-quite-cougar action — this puma’s only three years older than The Vampire Diaries actor, after all.
Bear with us. Our first answer was “Me!” as well. But since we seldom find ourselves in Atlanta or Hollywood, we thought we’d be generous and give Ian Somerhalder (Damon) some suggestions on who he should date. After pouring over Ian’s list of loves, we’ve taken his taste into account (he likes ‘em young) and also given him some branching-out options. We know you’re going to be less than fond of whomever Ian dates, so we chose some cool chicks who will be a little harder to hate.

Olivia Wilde Who do you follow up with when your ex is royalty? Might we recommend Ian Somerhalder? Former princess Olivia Wilde recently split with husband Tao Ruspoli, an Italian prince’s son. Much like Mr. Smolderhotter, Olivia is big into causes, and she was voted Peta’s sexiest vegetarian in 2010. Ian dated hotel heiress Nicki Hilton, so we’re pretty sure he can handle Her Royal Highness Olivia.

Aimee Teegarden If Ian wants to continue his streak of dating younger lasses, Aimee Teegarden fits his dating profile pretty well. Cute as a button, super talented, and animal friendly. She and her dog starred in anti-fur campaign for Peta. Oh, and her pup’s name is Gizmo, so you know she’s cool. The 21-year-old is not old enough for our Ian, you say? Well, she was born only a few months later than Nina Dobrev...

Rosario Dawson With a Twitter full of tweets about environmental awareness and humanitarian causes, Rosario Dawson is Ian’s social media soulmate. One of the projects close to Rosario’s heart is the Lower Eastside Girls Club, which just broke ground on a building that will serve the actress/singer’s native New York neighborhood. And while all that is awesome, she’s also super pretty, so she has that going for her.
Maggie Q We pretty much wish we were the Nikita star, and that feeling would be multiplied by ten were Maggie Q dating Ian Somerhalder. The two smokin’ hotties could get their menagerie of pets together — the action star has seven rescue dogs! — and go on some animal rights activism dates. Since they’re bth CW stars, it’s only a matter of time before the two kick ass actors meet up.
Nina Dobrev Oh Delena, when will you kiss for real, sans doppelganger fake-out? While we’re waiting for the day, we could gobble up cute tweeted pics of the two actors vacationing together, snuggling up close, and hanging out off set. What? We already have those things? Well, at least there’s no footage of them kissing. Wait. There is?! Are we sure these two aren’t an item? Team Ianina forever.
