“I do believe in killing the messenger. Know why? Because it sends a message.”
Damon Salvatore is nothing like a regular ‘nice guy’. He does whatever he feels like, without giving a damn about the people who look at him with their ‘judgey little eyes’. He goes around breaking hearts. He sheds blood without a second thought. But still, he rules the hearts of thousands of girls around the world.
It is not because girls have a thing for the ‘bad guys’. And it is also not just because he is supernaturally gorgeous to look at. It is because of the person who he is beneath that exterior of a crazy, impulsive vampire from the TV series The Vampire Diaries. It is the complexity of his character which makes us love him and hate him at the same time. The person he is on the inside is so close to the one most of us girls fancy as our dream guy. He lives life like there is no tomorrow, and also loves like there is no tomorrow. So how can we help falling for him?
So here’s a list of seven reasons, peppered with some memorable dialogues, which clearly explain why every girl fancies Damon Salvatore.
1.He has swoon-worthy good looks
“You know you were dreaming about me, explains the drool.”
He has the perfect face along with the perfect body. But it isn’t just his looks which make us fall in love with him. His overall personality can make any girl go weak in the knees. Just a stare from those penetrating eyes is enough. When he opens his mouth to deliver his super-witty one-liners, he just shoots up the oomph levels.
2. He has an unparalleled sense of humor
“Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie will haunt me forever.”
Damon Salvatore has delivered so many of the best dialogues from TVD, that one can just lose count of them. No matter how tense the situation is, no matter how big the fix is, he almost always has a witty one-liner up his sleeve.
3. Despite that impulsive exterior, he is an abyss-deep person on the inside
“I just have to say it once. You just need to hear it. I love you, Elena. And it is because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you, why you can’t know this. I don’t deserve you. But my brother does.”
And after he says this, he compels Elena and makes her forget it, so that his confession wouldn’t be a cause of misery to her and Stefan, who is Damon’s brother. Would you expect such selflessness from a regular psycho killer? This dialogue testifies that he has much more depth on the inside than one would perceive from the way he usually behaves.
4. He is fiercely honest and practical
“Don’t get me wrong, Stefan. I don’t mind being the bad guy. I’ll make all the life and death decisions, while you’re busy worrying about collateral damage. I’ll even let her hate me for it. But at the end of the day, I’ll be the one to keep her alive.”
He is willing to go out and actually get things done, no matter how big his sacrifice needs to be. Need I say more?
5. Even if he doesn’t show it, he really cares
“When people are good they expect good and I don’t want to live up to anyone’s expectations.”
So he doesn’t show the ocean of love concealed in his gorgeous eyes very often, but he genuinely cares for Stefan, Alaric, Bonnie and of course, Elena. And when he reveals that, we can’t help falling in love with him.
6. He is not just a badass, but is also extremely courageous
“You have ten seconds before I go old fashioned on the new guy.”
That dialogue simply oozes with his badass attitude. He is also one of the most tortured characters on TVD, and even while he is being tortured painfully, it neither diminishes his courage nor his one-liners.
7. He is a quintessential romantic on the inside
“You want a love that consumes you. You want passion. And adventure. And even a little danger.”
And Damon gives Elena all of that. She is one person for whom he would fight against the world. Don’t we all want a lover like that? Hell, our hearts broke every time Damon went through intense emotional pain due to the women he has loved. We feel for you, Damon*wipes his tears*
So that is why girls fancy him and guys are so very jealous of him. Why shouldn’t they be, after all? Those enticing eyes, that charming smile, the list of irresistible traits just doesn’t end. Mr. Somerhalder, thank you so much for giving us girls, particularly the single ones, a reason to live *swoons* 😉 <3
