While a career is one thing, people tend to focus only on that one thing, without allowing themselves the luxury to fall in love. That is not the case for Roan Curtis however. She is currently in a relationship for over two years with her boyfriend whom she has known since 2014.

The first interaction Roan Curtis and her boyfriend, James R. Swalm aka James Rittinger, had was on Facebook in 2014. James sent her a friend request on the social media site and proceeded to send her messages about her not accepting requests.
The message led to a hilarious exchange between the two which James screenshot and kept all these years. He posted the conversion on his Instagram page, there was a message where Roan even threatened to call the police. While he does not share the top conversation, it is still funny how their first interaction started.
Roan appears to remember things a little differently because she wrote a long post about meeting her boyfriend for the first time. She was 17-years-old and the gist of her post seems to be how she fell in love right when they met for the very first time. While she explains she is not a love at first sight believer, the moment with her boyfriend James was exactly that.
If you follow Roan or her boyfriend James, you have probably seen multiple pictures of the couple together. Even the ones with their adopted cat Gremlin, everything gives the vibe that the lovebirds are happy and extremely in love. There are also “awe” inspiring captions that accompany the photos.
In celebrating their first anniversary together on 6 August 2019, James posted, “I wanted to show off some of my favorite photos of the young woman who tore my heart out of my chest like that priest guy from Temple of Doom. But in a good way. Less of a tear and more of a gentle cradle. I love her. She makes me so much better than I knew I could be.”
Roan also posted during their second anniversary saying despite all the quirks she is totally infatuated with her boyfriend. Being quarantined together also seems to have aided in helping them deepen their relationship. Roan and her boyfriend James were also together during the Christmas period, wearing their matching sweatsuits.
It is probably a little hard to maintain a relationship, considering they are both working actors. But the beautiful couple is making it all work. It is almost their three years together this August, something Roan and her boyfriend James is looking forward to we imagine.
