Dear Dr Romance:

I just wanted to say thank you for the article you wrote "Relationships 101: Do Opposites Attract?"  I just read it today and you have really made my day.  I'm currently in an interracial relationship with a wonderful man from Africa.  Not only are we from different races but he is Muslim and I am a Roman Catholic so it makes it a little more interesting.  Unknowingly we have been following the guidelines you have written in your article and so far we are doing great.  We have discussed his family and background and my family and traditions we share.  We have talked about getting married and I am very excited about our future together. 
I think your article was very uplifting and people in any kind of relationship could take the advice to let the small things go and don't pick each other apart.  Again, Thank you for your wisdom and sharing it. 

Dear Reader:
Thanks so much for your positive feedback.  I'm so glad you found your love and are happy.  If you want more articles to help you keep love on the right track, try reading the free articles on my website like: "Guidelines for Being Understood by Your Partner,"   "How to be Irresistible to Your Mate" and "Couples Can Cooperate for SuccessHow to Be a Couple and Still Be Free is about how to have a successful relationship as two different people.
