i get what u are saying but sorry your reasons are not very convincing and u stated many times he hates bonnie so and as for jeremy he was mean to him in the sacrifice  also he jocked about caroline dying 

After the Jeremy-neck-snap, Damon started to truly understand what friendship and love meant. Not just caring about the person you love but the people they care about too. So because Bonnie is Elena's BFF, he cares about her. As for the hate, it's mostly from Bonnie;Damon's the one who wants things normal. If she wasn't Elena's friend, he would have probably ripped her heart out after she attacked him like he did to Bree.

As for Jeremy- Damon and Jeremy also connect on a level and they have an understanding and that is why Damon cares about him, not only because he's Elena's brother. As for why he was acting mean- that's Damon for you. He was actually trying to keep Jeremy out of the mess in his own way(Remember season finale bully talk which then lead to a deep conversation between Jeremy and Damon--> Damon for the first time revealed to person who wasn't Elena or Stefan that he at present hasn't switched off his feelings. Why in the world would he tell that to somebody he didn't care about?). And do I have to remind you about their conversation in the 2nd ep. Damon saw that Jeremy was searching for some kind of connection or some kind of purpose in life and that's why he told him about his father. He could have let things slide but he didn't 'cause he cared. The same goes with Caroline. Yeah, he did joke about Caroline dying but he didn't ACTUALLY want it to happen because he knew he couldn't stand Elena crying(After Stefan and Elena's breakup-he looked like he was gonna punch Katherine in the face for making her cry) and also because she was the Sheriff's daughter, whom he considered a friend. If he didn't care about her why do you think that when the sheriff said that her daughter is dead, Damon tries to convince that she is not because he knows how it feels like to be Caroline's shoes.

Damon is like that- in 1x14 when Elena got kidnapped after she and Stefan betrayed him, he said he hoped Elena dies and yet he struck the deal with Anna grudgingly because he didn't want her dead. What he says, thinks and does are different things altogether.

i know he considers elena as a friend but i am 100 percent sure he didn't go there because he wants to talk he didn't even mention wht kat said to him the only thing u are saying is why we hate elena honestly my reasons are many which i don't think u will get!!!

I have to disagree with you there. He went to seek comfort from her when landed up in her room because she was the only person who understood him like in 1x14 when she hugged him. In fact, he was trying to forget what happened with Katherine and his supposed kiss with her which I think is shown through the fact that he didn't want to admit that he cared. . But when she told him "It's a lie, Damon. You care." Damon found himself completely bare for the first time and that was when he had to talk about it. Had he fallen for someone again in vain? He had to know, he wasn't such a fool and then he couldn't wrap his head around the fact that it was Katherine, the slut he had kissed when actually the whole speech and everything had been meant for Elena. Katherine had taken that away from him along with his complete confidence. He was awfully confused and broken. He just wanted everything that Katherine had taken from him back. Selfish and stupid? Yes. Step into Damon Salvatore's shoes and it's understandable-not forgivable.

LMAO. Why blame Elena if Damon is boring? If there`s one thing Damon is a champion of, it`s free will. Elena doesn`t make anyone anything. It`s like Damon can do no wrong. Yeesh. With regards to hating Elena, I dont. I`m not a fan per say, but I`m not an Elena hater at all. I just wish she was more interesting. She`s not an engaging character. ^^Couldn't agree more  The one thing that I like about her is that she wants to make her own decisions, and that she had the guts to break up with Stefan when needed.

About the way she's treating Damon..like, I know he's very very hot and is trying to save her life..but he did kill her brother (even if he didn't die). I don't think that's something you can just move on from

^^TA

WOW .. I don't think I've agreed with this many people at once before, on TVD! XD

 exactly. and for people who think she's boring , she's getting better !

in the past couple episode's she's tried to punch damon and  sneak out of her house, before she was kind and warm but now she's getting stronger and making her own decisions. I really like her because of that .

and if you hate elena , why are you really watching ? because she's kinda sorta the main character ...

this again?? well first of Elena is not the only character of the show. and so what if she is like the main character its not like she's the only reason people watch the show. and second you don't really care if we hate her and still watch it. its our TV and its our time not yours! not your brother's! not your sister's and not even your mother's or your grandmother's. so people should stop asking "why watch the show if you like hate the main character" because its not your darn bussines!!

As a lot of people have mentioned, she's not exactly hate-worthy but isn't the most engaging character either and that's quite true because well this season we got to see Katherine and Caroline who are really well-developed characters.

Another reason why people dislike Elena is because she's the vampire girlfriend and that is a story we've already heard. So it isn't all that refreshing unlike Katherine and Caroline. What you have to appreciate about her is that she makes her own decisions and her life doesn't solely depend on one person and when she finds having a vampire boyfriend is harmful to her family and the people she cares about, she has the guts to break up and live her life normally and for another that she isn't completely dependent on her vampire boyfriend and his brother to save her all the time, she also has a part in it and puts up a fight.

She's too perfect people say and at times it seems believable but she can be manipulative but seriously what makes her weird? That she used to sit in a graveyard and write in her diary. I like the manipulative streak she showed in the sacrifice and also the I'm-nobody's-fool attitude in Katerina.Not enough. On this note, understandable. More flaws of hers have to be shown but not like sprung into our faces.

Coming to Damon, I have to be honest I wouldn't really start to appreciate her beyond her going against the vampire girlfriend stereotype if it weren't for her relationship/interactions with Damon because what I saw there was a bit different. And I agree lately she has been showing the cold shoulder to Damon, that is why people are really pissed with her but if the writers want to keep it real, she has to be mean to him after all that happened to Jeremy even though she admitted she still cares about him. When it comes to her, I can't think of her as a single entity although I know she'll survive and won't become suicidal but I can only think of her being a walking nurse for Stefan's blood issues and Damon's large list of unresolved issues and that I think is funny and SAD. She has a life beyond the brothers but it's not like Caroline or Bonnie or Katherine. Maybe because I can't really separate either one of the trio's life from the other. But I don't dislike her. I like her but more character development is required!

1) elena has become very boring. i liked her in the start of season 1 but now she's just miserable and whiny and it pulls her character down.

2) this whole 'elena has made damon boring' thing is kinnda true. she's turned him back into the old damon and the old damon is boring. the damon everyone loves is still there but when he's around elena, he goes back to being the boring damon.

3) there are lots of different characters in the show and there are other storylines in the show other than elena's. you dont have to watch just for elena.

I don't hate Elena. She has just gotten on my nerves lately with all the martyring and what not. Okay, you were gonna sacrifice yourself. We get it. Now quit pouting. And she is so serious all the time. She needs to take a chill pill and relax.

And her hair is annoying. Enough said. I just started re-watching season one and it looked so good in like the pilot and the second episode. It is painful for me to look at. Someone fix it.

And I understand Elena hasn't forgiven Damon. I just can't wait for her to acknowledge the fact she may actually have some more feelings for him than she cares to admit. Whether she likes it or not, it's there.

And Elena did not make him boring. Remember when they went on that trip together? Damon is not boring. He is just in the middle or protecting Elena and he doesn't wanna make her mad. So no more randomly killing people. So he isn't crazy anymore, but he's not boring.

I would like to see things not constantly revolve around Elena. Quit making her so miserable and whiny.

I agree she was more likable in season 1 but there's a reason why she is so whiny especially around Damon just like Bonnie keeps judging and blaming Damon or even Damon snapping Jeremy's neck. After that incident she's trying to be in denial of the existence of a supernatural world(She kinda always goes into that phase when she gets to know Damon did something stupid but in doing that she's being stupid) but it is also understandable because she lost faith in one person she thought she could trust without blinking her eye. Everyone thinks that it just affected her relationship with Damon but it also affected her outlook on life a bit. The whole martyr thing I agree got a bit boring but come to think of it the way Katherine put it to her, she was bound to be that suicidal. Come to think of it I think its in Gilbert blood- Jeremy is equally suicidal.

2) this whole 'elena has made damon boring' thing is kinnda true. she's turned him back into the old damon and the old damon is boring. the damon everyone loves is still there but when he's around elena, he goes back to being the boring damon.

He hasn't become boring! Last season he didn't have to deal with consequences; this season he has to- with Jeremy and Mason. He still acts impulsively and that's what is putting him in a soup. The only problem Elena's ever had with his personality is the fact that he doesn't deal with issues and then does something stupid he knows he is going to regret. So it's not Elena who made him who he is now, Damon did. He's funny even when he's around Elena and he knows it pisses her off. Only, now she doesn't smile back and rightfully so. Tell me one scene b/w them that put you to sleep.

I think you wouldn't find him all that boring if just Rose was hotter and more amusing. I think a part of me wishes that too.
