Damon Salvatore is a character who, if he existed in real life, there would be no hope for humanity because HOLY HOTNESS. Sure, The Vampire Diaries is full of hunky men, but Ian Somerhalder‘s character is, hands down, one of the all-time sexiest men on the CW series. From his rocking body to his
panty-dropping charming smile, he is a total catch. The best thing about him, however, is his amazing quotes. Damon has SO many amazing words pouring out of his mouth that it’s almost unfair to the rest of the cast. Here are 17 of his sexiest phrases:
1. “Some girls just can’t refuse my good looks, my style and my charm and my unflinching ability to listen to Taylor Swift” (Season 1, Ep. 4) — Okay, so you’re probably not sweating just yet, but a guy who loves Taylor Swift is a keeper.
2. “It’s cool not growing old. I like being the eternal stud” (Season 1 Ep. 4) — A hottie that never ages: WIN.
3. “It’s Founder’s Day. I’m here to eat cotton candy and steal your girl” (Season 1, Ep. 22) — He’s a man who knows what he wants. We likey.
4. “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” (Season 2, Ep. 10) — Hello, sacrificing his love for his brother’s happiness? It’s just SO romantic.
5. “Yeah, but that’s not the point. The point is, I’m in love with her. It’s driving me crazy. I’m out of control” (Season 2, Ep. 13) — He loves to love. *sigh*
6. “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” (Season 2, Ep. 18) — Time after time, Damon goes all in for Elena, which pulls at your heartstrings and makes you want him even more. There’s no denying it.
7. “I will always choose you” (Season 2, Ep. 18) — Damon is seriously SO heroic. He would literally sacrifice anyone else to protect Elena. It’s SO hot.
8. “I can’t lose you” (Season 2, Ep. 20) — Admit it, you pretended he was saying this to you!
9. “I’ve made a lot of choices that have gotten me here. I deserve this. I deserve to die… It’s okay. ’cause if I’d have chosen differently, I wouldn’t have met you” (Season 2, Ep. 22) — Swoon alert!
10. “It came to me in a dream. I was naked. You would have loved it” (Season 3, Ep. 3) — Oh Damon, you’re making us blush.

13. “No, I’m mad at you because I love you” (Season 3, Ep. 14) — The angst and pain in his eyes make him so much sexier. If that’s even possible.
14. “I care too much. I’m a liability. How ironic is that?” (Season 3, Ep. 14) — Heartbreaking and attractive all in one line.
15. “You want a love that consumes you. You want passion. And adventure. And even a little danger” (Season 3, Ep. 22) — Yes, you do want this type of love and you want it with Damon!
16. “Listen, how I got this amazing body has nothing to do with science” (Season 5, Ep. 9) — It doesn’t matter how he got it. What matters is that it’s beautiful and perfect.
17. “All I know is that right now I wanna rip your clothes off right here in the middle of this hall and throw you in one of these classrooms and kiss every square inch of your body, while a bunch of people who drive minivans listen wishing they were us” (Season 5, Ep. 17) — If your heart didn’t start beating faster while reading this, then there is something seriously wrong with you.
