It's pretty normal to see onscreen couples date in real life. However, only a few of those relationships carry enough legs to run the course of the distance. Some end prematurely while others last a long time before the inevitable split.
James Roday knows what it's like to be in a long relationship, but does he know what it's like to marry? Is he currently dating someone? How many past affairs has he had? Let's get the answers to all of these.
Is James Roday Currently Dating Someone?
The dashing actor James Roday, who was in a long-term relationship in the past with co-star Maggie Lawson, is not currently married. In fact, he is yet to share wedding vows in his life. But is he currently in a relationship? The answer is No!
Since the breakup from his long-time girlfriend, the actor seems focussed on his career. He has featured in numerous movies since his split, most notably Gravy (2015) and Pushing Dead (2016).
James appears to be enjoying a single life at the moment and there is no indication he could get into a relationship anytime soon. Moreover, his social media drops no such hints of his dating endeavors.
A quick glance at his Instagram account displays several women close to him, most of them, co-stars. However, there is nothing to suggest he could be involved romantically with anyone.
Either the actor is single or extremely good at hiding his love affair. However, the likely scenario is he is staying away from the dating game after breaking up in his previous relationship.
Usually, it takes some time to pick yourself up and want to be together with a partner again, after a tragic end to a relationship. Perhaps he does not feel it's the right time to bring a new woman in his life.
James looks fully engrossed in his professional career at the moment and his fans might have to wait a while before he is seen together with a delightful lady.
Meanwhile, the actor has a dog named Spaceman who appears to be his best friend. James often shares his pet's pictures on social media.
James Roday And Maggie Lawson Split After 7 Years
James Roday and Maggie Lawson first met in 2006, on the sets of American comedy series Psych. They were an on-screen couple who soon turned their romance off-screen as well.
The couple fell for each other while working together in the show and their love kept blossoming over the years. The couple bought an eco-friendly Los Feliz house in Los Angels in August 2011, which showed how serious their relationship had become.
Like numerous other celebrity couples, their love faded over time, and they ended up splitting after seven years in 2014. The series too ended in the same year after the conclusion of its final season. The reasons for the pair's split was not revealed, so it's anybody's guess the reason they decided to depart.
Meanwhile, the on-screen couple was reunited once again in 2017 when they starred together in the TV comedy movie Psych: The Movie. The real-life exes married on-screen, so at least their fans had something to cheer about after the sadness of their real-life split.
Meanwhile, Maggie Lawson moved on and ended up marrying Back in the Game co-star Ben Koldyke on 8th August 2015. Unfortunately, they had some troubles in their relationship and Lawson filed for divorce in early 2017.
