Celiac singles dating
Gluten Free started when two health conscious friends, one with Celiac disease and the other gluten-intolerance recognized the need for a gluten-free dating community that focused on singles with similar dietary needs.By creating Gluten Free they’ll help the 3 million people who have Celiac disease and those who are gluten intolerant find valuable information, self-improvement, and long fulfilling gluten-free relationships.In the beginning, shortly after my celiac disease diagnosis, my then-husband and I met with a dietician from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center who specialized in counseling patients newly diagnosed with celiac disease. After a few months of following her orders, he went completely gluten-free so he didn’t have to brush, floss, rinse, and repeat. According to my two adult daughters, my online profile shouldn’t include anything about me having celiac disease, for fear of turning men away. Instead, in my profile I say that gluten is an issue but it never stops me from living.We’re not married any longer, and now I’m the one faced with having to deliver the kissing prescription to new potential partners, without any help from a dietician. In all honesty, that doesn’t even remotely capture the ways in which celiac disease has turned my life upside down and inside out.Let’s just say you met someone you wanted to date; maybe they even knocked your socks off.And let’s just say that said person, at some point, told you there could be no kissing unless you brushed your teeth, flossed, and then rinsed with mouthwash. But now I am that person, the one who cannot be kissed unless the above-mentioned “kissing prescription” is followed to the letter of the law.
Now I know that we can make it, even if I survive on cookies and he actually eats things that naturally green.There are so many great things about this site– especially the blog.
