This is my Damon/Delena centric Tumblr and I roleplay Damon Salvatore on twitter. Damon is a connoisseur of spirits, the sentry of Elena's heart, he does not sparkle, sarcasm and skepticism included. I also dislike Katherine, Datherine, and Klaroline. Team Elena always.
Damon: [I laugh and flirt with the waitress despite the fact that Elena was glaring at me. I go on like this until my attention is unintentionally drawn to the commotion of the group of people loudly doting on the engaged couple. I glared at the two of them as Elena initiated a kiss with Matt. I finally manage to rip my eyes away from the romantic scene and back to the waitress. I give her a salacious smile and within no time the young and very attractive waitress is playing with my hair and serving me free drinks. I became pretty lushy after several shots of hard liquor, with my tie now loosely hanging from my neck and my shirt open a few buttons at the collar. The waitress leaned over practically putting her cleavage in my face. My voice is a bit slurred as I glance up at her] You have.. nice.. [I motion sloppily toward my own chest] a nice view!
Elena: ~I begin to seethe with anger the more I watch Damon get so drunk that’s he’s practically falling all over the ridiculously flirtatious waitress. I turn to Matt, grasping his hand as I tug it gently~ since our guests have dwindled down, are you ready to go to the bakery? We must check on our cake order.. ~Matt smiles and kisses the back of my hand~ “of course, love, but first I’d like to say hello to Mister Salvatore.” ~my mouth gapes open, catching the insincerity in Matt’s voice. But before I can stop him, Matt walks up next to Damon and places a hand on his shoulder, giving it a firm squeeze as he smiles~ “such a great sight to see you up and around, Damon. I presume all wounds have healed..” ~I sigh softly at the double meaning behind his words, avoiding eye contact with Damon as Matthew then grips my hand in his~
Damon: [I’m actually distracted by the waitress when I feel a hand on my shoulder, with my inhibitions lowered I impulsively grab Matt’s arm using more force than I intend to nearly injuring his arm in the process. I’m practically shouting now] DON’T EVER TOUCH ME!! [My hazy eyes full of deep heart-wrenching hurt fall upon Elena but answering Matt’s question] /some/ wounds cut so deep they can never be healed. [I mange to pull the ring from my pocket] He loves you so much that he hadn’t even noticed the ring you currently wear is not the one he gave you?! [I boldly grab Elena’s hand shoving the ring in her palm] I would have noticed.. [With that said I brush past Elena only to have the waitress quickly follow after me]
Elena: ~my heart sinks at Damon’s words, my emotionally charged eyes locking with his before he storms out of the restaurant. I stand there with incoherent thoughts, gazing down at the ring in my hand. I’m only brought back to present when Matt asks in a low, stern voice~ “Elena.. what.. In the hell.. is Mister Salvatore talking about? And /why/ did he have your engagement ring that /I/ gave you? ~I exhale shakily, hesitantly meeting Matt’s eyes. My mind was still on Damon and how that waitress had followed him out~ I.. I don’t know.. it must’ve fallen off when I was at Damon’s house.. ~Matt’s lips curl into an expression of disgust, his tone conveying his disbelief~ “when you’re ready to tell me the truth, /Miss/ Gilbert.. ~I flinch at the formality of my name, lowering my head~ “I’ll be at the manor. Possibly canceling /our/ wedding..” ~Matt stalks out of the restaurant, leaving me alone with onlookers gawking at me. My chocolate spheres fill with tears, knowing how badly I’ve screwed things up. Matt was angry but I knew him well enough to know he was mostly hurt. And so was Damon~
Damon: [I start to walk with an unsteady pace but I barely make it more than a few feet from the entrance. I could usually hold my liquor but I think I’ve drank too much even for me. I lean against the wall when a dizzy spell hits me, putting my hands in my now messy hair. I hear a feminine voice from behind me which captures my attention hoping it was Elena, but to my disappointment it was only the waitress] What is it that /you/ want.. from me? [She seems a bit hesitant at first] “You do not remember me, do you?” [I glance towards her with confusion] I.. might be.. drunk.. but I think surely I do not have memory loss.. from barely ten minutes past. [She scoffs and folds her arms] “Mister Damon Salvatore, My name is Charlotte. Does /that/ not jog your lost memory?”
Elena: ~unable to take the judging stares any longer, I compose myself enough before I rush out of the restaurant. I catch a glimpse of Damon and the waitress out of the corner of my eye, seeing that Damon seems to be bent over, not looking so good. A part of me knows it would be potentially disastrous if I were to linger near Damon but the other part of me can’t help but worry for him and that’s the part of me that wins out. I sigh heavily, making the decision to myself to make this quick. I walk over to Damon ignoring the crazed, jealous eyes Charlotte gives me~ are you all right, Mister Salvatore?
Damon: [I sit down with my back against the wall with my head in my hands. Before glancing up once Elena addresses me directly. My voice has a hint of heavy sarcasm behind it] Is that supposed to be a rhetorical question, Miss Gilbert? [Charlotte gives Elena a deliberate shove as she approaches me, now helping me to my feet. Charlotte narrows her eyes at Elena as she practically clings to my arm] “He is /fine/.” [Charlotte flashes an overtly seductive smile my way, completely ignoring the way that just a simple look could cause Elena to have such a strong reaction, considering she was technically not mine nor was I hers]
Elena: ~Charlotte’s aggressive protectiveness over Damon catches me off guard and fuels me with an unexpected anger. Without even thinking, I grasp her arm tightly and pull her away from Damon, narrowing my eyes at her as I speak in a low, stern voice~ you’re out of your element, little girl. I think it’d be best if you go back inside and leave it to me to attend to Mister Salvatore.
Damon: [Charlotte scoffs loudly at Elena’s statements and I stare at the both of them with a wide-eyed innocence about me. Charlotte takes a bold step forward wearing a glaringly jealous expression] “Oh! Shall I take advice from someone like you? H’m?” [Charlotte motions towards the direction she saw Matt go but never takes her focus off Elena] “Do you not have a fiancée you should be attending to, soon-to-be /Mrs/ Donovan? Why is Mister Salvatore even a concern of yours?!!”
Elena: ~I glare fiercely at Charlotte, gripping her arm even tighter~ don’t you dare bring Mister Donovan into this. It’s none of your damn business why I’m here for Damon! He and I have history! Something you /wish/ you had with him. ~my expression becomes one of gloating before Charlotte quips back with a smirk~ “you’re wrong. I’m perfectly fine not having the reputation of the town whore!” ~my mouth gapes open in shock, my eyes widening with angry tears. I suddenly find my hand swiping across Charlotte’s cheek in a harsh slap~
Damon: [I stare in disbelief at the events unfolding before me between Elena and Charlotte. I get in between the two of them before this volatile situation can escalate any further. I suddenly raise my voice] Stop it!! [I stand in front of Elena protectively, glaring at Charlotte, my voice is full of anger] Do NOT ever speak that way of Miss Gilbert ever again!
Elena: ~Charlotte lunges at me but Damon blocks her vengeance. The sudden intrusion making me jolt out of my abrupt actions. I gaze at Charlotte with wide eyes, trying to regain my composure. I sigh heavily, shaking my head as I think of how reckless I’ve become, knowing the old me wouldn’t have jumped to such extreme measures. I glance at Damon, speaking dryly~ forgive me for sabotaging your little /date/ here.. ~I shoot Charlotte a sharp glare before turning to walk away~
Damon: [I manage a few uncoordinated steps forward before grabbing onto the wall desperately to maintain some semblance of balance despite my intoxicated state. Now raising my voice putting intensity behind my every word] You’re just going to walk away?!! There’s something going on between us! And you /know/ it. You’re lying to /him/, you’re lying to /me/, and most of all you’re lying to /yourself/!! Marrying someone you are not madly and passionately in love with is a travesty for both of you!!
Damon: [There were covers instantly pooling over my lap as I struggle to sit up, wincing a bit and instinctively holding my midsection as a result. I glance over at Elena who can’t seem to help but come to my side when she takes note of the distress upon my face. I reach up and rest my hand on Elena’s cheek with my thumb caressing the skin just beneath. I let my hand linger there before I drop it in my lap. I sigh softly, dropping my gaze as well] You regret it, right? Have you finally come to your senses and want to set things straight with me? [I can’t help the daunting expression as my turbulent oceans of blue lift to meet the cacophony of her conflicted browns] have you, Elena?
Elena: ~I close my eyes at the feel of Damon’s hand touching my cheek, a gentle sigh escaping me. A simple touch from him had a way consuming me, making my heart pound in my chest. I lift my hand, softly resting it over Damon’s as I let the moment linger a few seconds before he withdraws his hand. I hesitantly meet his questioning, saddened eyes, unable to find the right words~ Damon.. I.. there’s not enough time to explain my choices.. ~my jaw clenches as I lower my head, angry tears forming in my eyes as I contemplate the fact I’m not even being given a choice. My voice comes out broken though I try to hold my emotions together~ this has to end, Damon.. we can’t.. ~I shut my eyes tightly, bracing myself for the words that follow. I then hesitantly meet Damon’s eyes once again~ we can’t see each other anymore..
Damon: [I suddenly feel like I’m drowning when I hear Elena’s words, like my heart was clenching in my chest. I shake my head no, a very subtle notion. I abruptly sit up and despite my injuries I crash my lips against Elena’s, conveying my deep feelings for her in a way that words could not. I needed Elena to know how much I loved her and words just could not convey that level of deep emotion that a kiss could. I put all of my passion and desire into this kiss that was born out of the consuming love between she and I]
Elena: ~I instantly respond to Damon’s impulsive kiss, one hand gripping his shoulder as the other glides up his toned chest and into his messy raven locks. I whimper softly, getting lost in him. My tongue absently darts out, fighting for dominance with his as we ravish each other, knowing it’s the only way to express our true feelings. I give Damon all that I have, letting him understand how my love has never wavered. My whole body is ignited with heat, flooding every inch with pleasant tingles. I deepen the kiss even more, nibbling and sucking on Damon’s lower lip~
Damon: [Once Elena’s lips were on mine nothing else mattered. The sensual kiss quickly escalated into something more intense and heated by the moment. My hips finding a place between Elena’s thighs with only the thin material of her pantaloons and my PJ bottoms between us, probably which clues Elena in to just how arousing this intimate situation had become. I murmur heatedly against Elena’s inviting mouth] I want.. you.. Elena..
Elena: ~I sigh in pleasure against Damon’s lips, my hands now cupping his face. I feel my own body twinge with arousal at his intense confession. I reply in a breathy, needy tone~ God you have no idea how much I missed you, Damon.. ~I crash my lips against his once again, clinging to him desperately as I subtly grind my hips into Damon, eliciting a sweet moan. It’s only when I hear Stefan whisper harshly through the closed door that I’m brought back to the reality of the situation~ “Elena! You need to go!”
Damon: [I get so lost in the moment as Elena grinds her hips into mine, which drives me wild. I blindly grab for the top of her pantaloons with my lips still devouring Elena’s intoxicating kisses, wanting so badly to show her exactly how desperately I’d missed her but suddenly Elena’s pushing me off her. She gives me a deeply apologetic look before rushing out of the room. I’m left breathless, bewildered, and still turned on. Had I been healthier I’d definitely gotten up and went after her. I groan loudly as I lay on my bed draping my arm over my eyes, when I notice something besides the obvious arousal happening that I couldn’t seem to ignore, a small silver engagement ring in my hand that must’ve accidentally slipped off Elena’s finger in the heat of passion]
Elena: ~I breeze past Stefan, refusing to see that disapproving yet understanding look upon his face, my own still flushed with heat from the passionate encounter with Damon. I didn’t get to say the words I needed to for our goodbye but as I touch my lips with my fingertips, the pleasant tingles still lingering from Damon’s consuming kisses, I realize it was probably the only way either of us could’ve conveyed our feelings and had our potentially final moments. I’m greeted by Matt at the front door who looks at me curiously, inquiring about my attire. I reply in a breathy tone~ I had to assist in helping bring Damon’s fever down..
Damon: [I contemplated what to do about this raging hard-on that Elena’s sudden departure left me with. I was so hot and bothered by this woman that despite my injury I still wanted to get up and find Elena and finish what we had started. I exhale shakily as I examine the ring trying to get my mind off of other things. Upon closer inspection, I deduce it was an engagement ring which effectively ruined the sexually charged mood I’d been in just moments ago. I grimace at the thought of Elena in a wedding gown saying vows to any man who wasn’t me. My fingers tremble and the ring that represents such a harsh reality falls to the bed]
Elena: ~Matt escorts me to the front door of the Gilbert Manor, a heavy sigh flowing from his lips~ “Elena, I just wish you had asked me to accompany you.” ~I swallow thickly, trying to gather my thoughts~ there was no time, Matthew. Damon was very ill and Stefan needed my help.. ~Matt can’t conceal the scowl that appears on his boyish features~ “as if there weren’t any one else there.. The Salvatores have plenty of servants and maids..” ~I grasp Matt’s hand, arching a brow curiously~ is this about concern or jealousy, Matthew Donovan? ~he rolls his eyes slightly and shakes his head~ “I just know the history between you and Damon.. I’d be naive if I thought there weren’t any lingering feelings..” ~a look of guilt clouds my delicate features, suddenly recalling mine and Damon’s last moments together. But I quickly compose myself, putting on the most convincing smile I can manage~ it is /you/, Mister Donovan, that I’ll be marrying in a week. ~I peck his lips with a soft kiss, the fiery passion I had shared with Damon only an hour earlier no longer present~ you have nothing to worry about.
Damon: [After a few days of forced bed-rest by my annoyingly overprotective brother I feel well enough to walk on my own. I’d heard the latest gossip about Elena’s impending marriage to Mister Donovan and that made me feel more ill than the damn bullet wound. I was going a bit stir crazy couped up in that house all day long, so I got dressed and eventually found myself in a classy restaurant that happened to serve top notch alcohol. To my surprise, who did I find there but the future Mr and Mrs Donovan celebrating their engagement party. Though Elena was on the opposite side of the room standing beside Matt she couldn’t seem to keep her eyes off me. I openly flirted with the waitress trying to ignore her jealous eyes that seemed to be trying to burn a hole right through me]
Elena: ~I’m all smiles with pleasant conversation until Damon walks through the door, my expression instantly changing. I feel as if my heart was going to burst through my chest, suddenly feeling nervous. I had done so well at avoiding running into Damon and now here he was and at the worst time possible. I feel Matt’s arm tighten around my waist, pulling me closer. I smile at him lovingly tho I knew his actions were only because he saw Damon too. I’m then caught up in the sight of Damon openly flirting with the waitress, making my blood boil with jealousy. Unable to watch them any longer, I avert my attention to Matt, gazing into his eyes as I caress his jawline with my thumb~ can you believe only a few days and I’ll be Mrs. Matthew Donovan?! ~Our guests chuckle fondly as they watch us, my lips now crashing against Matt’s. I just wasn’t sure if I was trying to convince Damon or myself~
First off, Damon’s best friend already died in his arms and simultaneously he knew his true love died too because they both were linked. Not that Stefan is a better person than Damon but I don’t think Stefan would be able to do that to Damon. What Damon did was horrible and Stefan was hurt as a result.. (though my person feelings about Lexi are that I Hate that damn bitch and she was the worst friend ever) Damon over the course of regaining his humanity does feel remorse for his actions, for hurting Stefan, and taking away someone Stefan loves. I think losing Alaric gave Damon a new perspective on what it meant for his brother to lose his best friend. But Damon can’t change what he did. Nobody can change their past. I don’t think Stefan would get much out of making Damon suffer the way he did when Lexi died. Damon doesn’t really do apologies but I’m sure Stefan knows Damon regrets what he did. They don’t really agree on much, they can be mean or disagreeable or get into fights but they have an unspoken bond and most of all they love one another.

Examine whether you treat the object of your interest as a person or a thing. When you experience infatuation, your mind is consumed by thoughts of the other person. You’re thinking not only about the other person but also about how you want to reveal yourself to the other person. You have an idealized vision of what this person is like, and your vision may or may not be accurate.
Evaluate how secure you feel. Instead of feeling secure, you are thinking more about how to impress the other person. Your focus is on how to get the other person to like you, and you feel nervous because you don’t know how the other person feels.
Think about how long you’ve been in the relationship. Your relationship is pretty new, and while you’re constantly thinking about the other person, you’re not confident that he or she has what it takes to go the distance.
Observe how sex affects your feelings. Sex is exciting, but you feel tentative afterward. You worry about whether your partner found you appealing, and you worry about what the next step after sex will be.
Analyze the way that you’re thinking about the other person. You think constantly about the way that the person smiles, the way he or she says your name or the way that your partner looks at you. You think obsessively about these details, and you try to decide how the person feels about you based on these somewhat trivial qualities.
Look at how you handle conflict. The person you like disagrees with you, and you wonder if the relationship is over. You wonder whether you know the person at all or whether your impressions have been wrong all along.
Consider your feelings about moving the relationship forward. You want to ask the person to date exclusively, but you’re nervous about what he or she might say. You’re afraid that asking for commitment may frighten the person away. Your feelings aren’t deep enough for love; you’re probably more in the realm of infatuation.
Examine whether you treat the object of your interest as a person or a thing. You care for this person even knowing his or her faults. You are committed to sticking together even through the most difficult circumstances. You can tell this person anything about yourself, even if the truth doesn’t flatter you, and you know that your partner will accept you. Just know that there is no way to make a person love you however actions do speak louder than words. If you are the one always giving and getting very little in return. You might consider asking a trusted family member or friend that has your best interest at heart what they see. Most of the time those on the outside are more likely to see things that you don’t because love is blind.
Evaluate how secure you feel. You know that your partner will stand by you no matter what, and you are prepared to commit to your partner for the rest of your life.
Think about how long you’ve been in the relationship. You have known the person for a long time, and you can’t imagine life without him or her. You want to know everything about the person and want to spend time to get to know them on a deeper level.
Observe how sex affects your feelings. After you have sex with your partner, you feel closer to him or her. For you, affection and post-coital cuddling are just as important as sex, although you love to keep the flame alive. Sex is not the most important part of your relationship and you would still want to be with them even if did not involve sex or you had to wait for them.
Analyze the way that you’re thinking about the other person. Something funny has happened to you at work, and you can’t wait to tell your partner. Alternatively, you’ve had a bad experience, and you want to talk to someone who will understand. If your partner is the first person that you think about when you want to share your innermost thoughts, then you may be in love. You have mutual respect for each other.
Look at how you handle conflict. When you have an argument with your partner, you keep working until you’re able to find some common ground. No argument can erase your commitment to one another, and you appreciate your partner speaking the truth even when it’s painful. Even if you don’t agree with your partner you will always take their side and defend them in front of your family and friends.
Consider your feelings about moving the relationship forward. You feel comfortable with your partner, and you feel a strong bond of trust. Moving in together or getting married feels natural and logical. You want to introduce them to your family and friends.
When we based it in a human dictionary infatuation is an admiration while love is a strong affection. To understand more what are the differences of the two let me share this to you which came from the book i’ve read entitled “I LOVE YOU” by Gordon Martinborough.
1. Infatuation is govern by feelings while in love feelings is under the control of principle - what does it means? Feelings is in charge in the side of infatuation, all we know that feelings easily change like you hug him today for you feel good and tomorrow you feel bad and you spank him right away without any reason..Is that Love? Well, true love has feelings that you actually feel in your heart. It’s not feelings only but plus principles. And the best example of this can be found in the bible that says “Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not jealous, it is not proud, it does not boast. Love is never rude, it is not self-seeking, it is never prone to anger, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
2. Infatuation is describe as blind while love sees and examines -here it very self explanatory that infatuation looks only the outside happiness like when you know already that your girlfriend/boyfriend involved in a illegal works and yet you still want to marry him that’s a big mistake you’ll ever had. Love does’nt do that thing it will spare time to see and examine the strength and weaknesses of the cited partner to be. Love never feel afraid to ask difficult questions to clear up everything.
3. Infatuation is in a hurry, while love takes time - You have known a person yesterday and you were struck by her beauty and the next day you courted her and the following day you will marry her. It is happening so fast because of the love at first sight thing. In true Love it takes time to know and grow more on the person you want to be with through out your life.
4. Infatuation look externally while love goes internally -infatuation only concerned with the outside beauty of the person like how sexy is the body of that person but in love it is the opposite way because it concerns the inner beauty of the person that’s particularly the virtues and the personality itself.
5. Infatuation is childish while love is mature - self-centered, selfish, unkind this is the childish way where infatuation fall. No concerned on the welfare of the other person because all he wants is just for him. But love is the other way around for it looks first the welfare of the person and think what is good in the future.
6. Infatuation is a human pit while love is a divine ladder - When a person is blinded by infatuation it will never go up instead it falls down to a human pit. But when a person has true love he is climbing the divine ladder that involves effort and determination.
