Rock and roll romance

September 4, 2014

As I type this, I am still sitting in shock that the months of July and August are over.  Where did they go?  Yes, the weather is still warm outside and the sun is currently shining brightly, but, I would love to revisit the summer again.  One particularly fun moment was when I had the opportunity to meet Dan Parent at the FanExpo in Toronto on August 30th.  Dan Parent is an artist and writer for Archie Comics.  I have loved reading Archie Comics books ever since I was a child, and I still love buying and reading Archie books.  I view Archie books as an investment, similar to the way that stamp collectors view stamps as collectibles.  I purchased 3 special Archie books at the FanExpo, and 2 of those books were Archie a rock n roll romance, and The Archies & Josie and the Pussycats.  Those 2 books featured Archie and Valerie's romance.  So exciting!  Archie and Valerie's relationship is an interracial relationship and it is handled really beautifully.  The storylines focus on the RELATIONSHIP instead of the ethnic differences between Archie and Valerie.  I love how Riverdale is such a welcoming place!

Interracial relationships are certainly not new, but they have typically been shown in the media as being problematic in some way.  While Archie and Valerie faced some challenges, the challenges that they faced were not racial ones.  I don't want to give away the entire plot, so, you will have to get your own copies of each book in order to find out what happens!  As an owner of an interracial dating website and a writer, it makes my heart feel good to read stories and testimonials of people who treated their interracial relationships with respect and with seriousness.  Some people deliberately pursue interracial relatinships because they are curious about interracial dating.  However, it is important to pursue someone because you are serious and sincere about being involved with that person and not because you want to give interracial dating a curious "try" with no intention to respectfully treat the person who you are with.  Life should be treated with seriousness.  Even fun times should be treated with a serious approach!

I believe that some people just "know" that they are attracted to and are meant to be with someone who is a different ethnicity.  If you are considering getting involved in an interracial relationship, please take my advice and treat your interracial relationship with the same normalcy that you would treat a relationship with someone whose ethnicity was the same as your own. There may be some obvious cutural differences within your interracial relationship, and that's fine to acknowledge them, but be sure to find common ground together that will help your relationship to grow in a healthy way.
