Out of all the pairings in The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie and Damon were one of the few who weren’t explored romantically. They were best friends who had incredible chemistry, but Bonnie was paired with Enzo and Damon was waiting for Elena to wake up from her magically-induced coma.

In The Vampire Diaries books, Damon and Bonnie had a romance, so it wouldn’t have been surprising if it was carried over. Although they never dated in the television series, there’s plenty of evidence that suggests Damon and Bonnie were meant to be.
