I like Delena but let's be honest, they're nothing special. *Yes, I've said the forbidden words*
Stefan who DUMPED Elena, Stefan who doesn't care about her family
I don't think you've entirely got Stefan's motivation and behaviour this season. Everything he's done, he's done for Damon and Elena. He wanted to protect them. He knows it's not that easy to win his humanity back, it doesn't happen in the blink of an eye. It takes a lot of time, "half of her life" to quote his own words. He would rather Elena to hate him than her being hurt. He wants her to move on eventually. It's selfless
, and when he says "not really my problem", that doesn't mean he doesn't care about Jeremy, that means he cares too much
. It's literally written on his face.
