Happy Birthday to our boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder.

Ian Somerhalder crash landed into our hearts when we first laid eyes on him as Boone in Lost. Now, as Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, we can't even handle ourselves every time we see him on the screen. So, in honor of our boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder's 35th year on Earth, here are 35 reasons we absolutely love him.

His eyeballs were basically hand painted by angels.
