The Gluten Free Singles Scene

8 Comments 05 July 2006

UPDATED 4/1/07 I recently discovered a site called celiacsingles.com. I’ve been happily married since before the internet existed, so I really don’t know how sites like this work for the gluten intolerant (or anyone else for that matter). Obviously, there is a need. I wonder how I would go about maintaining my gluten free diet while in a dating relationship. Since I have absolutely no qualifications for evaluating web sites for singles, I hope that some qualified person will step forward and leave a comment. I’ll make sure that your ideas are published.

UPDATE: 02/11/08 THE SITUATION IS NOT HOPELESS. I JUST HEARD ABOUT A NEW SITE FOR GLUTEN FREE SINGLES. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.

UPDATE 4/1/07 Unfortunately, this site went out of business on March 31, 2007. My first thought was simply to delete this article, but I thought better of it. I’ve been married 38 years so I can hardly imagine myself dating, much less explaining celiac disease to a romantic interest. This site addressed a serious problem that deserves attention. As of now, I know of no sites for celiac singles. I hope someone accepts the challenge of starting one. I’ll help you with publicity and in any other way that I can. I can certainly help you "get the word out". E-mail me at gfceliac@gmail.com or leave a comment at the end of this (or any other) article.

    So sad these sites aren’t available anymore. I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac for the past 5 years and after going on a few dates I have thought to myself repeatedly for the past few years how much I wish I could just meet another Celiac. It would make things SO much easier–and there’d be an important bond–a common struggle that is so important I think. Some will disagree and I completely understand–of course I believe that if two people fall in love a diet hardly matters, but Celiac is a daily struggle and truly a far cry from an average person’s eating habits, especially on the run and out in the world. I would like to think my perfect girl would be someone I love to be with, and who also shares the daily challenges to my diet. Here’s hoping :(

  2. I’m actually a bunny-foster-mom through a local rabbit rescue, and along with my two boys, I take in one bunny at a time and make him/her accustomed to people, litter box train, introduce new foods, etc, until a family is interested in adopting the rescued rabbit.

    Evac,

    I absolutely agree. It is difficult to date non celiac’s. Diet does matter, we eat 3 meals a day plus snacks. If you have a relationship with someone that is not gluten free there is the constant worry of cross contamination, making restaurant choices and the list goes on. I feel guilty because I can’t just eat anywhere and feel bad because I have to always have my date eat some where that wasn’t their choice. I have had met a few men that thought my celiac was to much of a hassle and they didn’t want to deal with it. Try living it, they have no idea. It would be a blessing to meet someone that is dealing with the same thing. It helps you feel like you belong instead of the odd person in the group. I’m hoping to meet a special man with the same challenge.

    I was diagnosed about 2 years ago and was just recently divorced. I have been finding it extremely difficult to date because of all the challenges it brings into the relationship. I’ve decided to create a new website for people with celiac and it will be done in a few months. I will post the site once it’s done if that is OK. If anyone would like to know more, you can e-mail me at nicolep1016@hotmail.com.
