Though they’ve played coy about whether or not they’re dating, it seems whenever Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) are in close proximity, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Considering how attractive they are, we can’t really blame them!

The pair first attended Elton John’s Oscar viewing party on February 26, where they snapped photos while holding hands. The love-fest continued at the Relativity After-Party. According to guests at the shindig, which was held at a private mansion, Nina and Ian ignored everyone else at the party and were in “awe of each other.” In between sips of their Moet & Chandon champagne and Veev cocktails, Ian stole numerous kisses. Looks like denials aside, these two are co-starring in their own real-life romance!
