The answer to the question "who is Charles Melton dating?" is quite simple. He is dating Camila Mendes. The Riverdale co-stars started dating after growing close to one another during their time on the set of the teen drama.

During their time together, the pair frequently took to Instagram to express their love and support for each other.

Unfortunately, not long after celebrating their first anniversary, Mendes and Melton headed their separate ways. However, the two got together once again after reconnecting on the set of Riverdale once again.

Mendes And Melton Confirm Dating Rumors

Having spent so much time together on the set of Riverdale, Mendes and Melton sparked relationship rumors in September 2018. A month later, Mendes confirmed she and Melton were dating with an Instagram post on October 7, 2018.

Mendes Responds To Fan Comparing Charles Melton With Her Ex-Boyfriend

Prior to getting together with Melton, Mendes had been in a relationship with Victor Houston. So when she began dating Melton, there were still many people commenting on her relationship.

On November 7, 2018, she responded to a fan who had taken to Instagram to post a picture of her with Houston side by side with a picture of her with Melton and write she looked happier with Houston.

Mendes explained she had never been happier and comparing her two relationships was stupid, especially since people did not know everything about them.

I feel silly responding to this but I also feel the impulse to tell you that you’re wrong. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life. It’s absurd to me that you call yourself a fan, yet your entire page is dedicated to disrespecting my relationship and my boyfriend, both of which you clearly know nothing about.
