17 Television Love Triangles That Got Old Real Fast
TV love interests have become a huge part of our lives… in respects to television, anyway. Whether it’s your favorite vampires finally becoming an item (we’re looking at you, Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore) or fictional couples like Haley James and Nathan Scott on One Tree Hill, proving that love does exist, getting invested in small-screen duos is part of the fun of watching TV.
Sure, there are horrible TV couples, which you often overlook, but have now realized are completely dysfunctional, but with good there has to be bad. Sadly, there are some pairs on your television screen that get involved in famous love triangles that you love to hate or hate to love. To see which of the epic love triangles actually got really old, really fast, read through the gallery below. Sorry, but the truth hurts.
Damon Salvatore, Elena Gilbert & Stefan Salvatore
Alright, we know that without this love triangle and without the Damon-Katherine-Stefan love drama, The Vampire Diaries wouldn't be as interesting, but this one did get old. We get it, Elena loved both of the Salvatore brothers, but why so much back and forth?
Once she stopped dating Stefan, it should have been over, but it just kept going. Plus, it was torture wondering if she'd ever go back to Stefan, when it was clear she was over him, but was for some reason keeping him in her love triangle. Ugh.
