There are some products and services developed specifically for gluten-free individuals that make perfect sense, like gluten-free food brands, restaurants and cookbooks.

According to its website, GlutenfreeSingles was created for users who, "[have] celiac disease, are gluten intolerant or choose to be gluten free for health reasons" because "relationships last longer when partners have similar lifestyle needs and common interests.

GlutenfreeSingles' website notes that their goal is to create a community where users, "never have to feel alone, awkward, or a burden because you are gluten-free. While GlutenfreeSingles may offer refuge for those who feel their gluten-free lifestyle is misunderstood, whether or not it's an effective basis for creating lasting relationships remains to be seen.

Whether you have celiac disease, are gluten intolerant or choose to be gluten free for health reasons, we welcome you to GlutenfreeSingles, a website committed to building a national and global community for those who are gluten free.

Erica has been thru the gluten-free dating scene. And it isn't pretty. Erica the floor is yours. I've been gluten-free for a few years now, but I was single for way longer than that. So when asked to write a post about living with Celiac disease, I first thought of what I was really really good at, and that was being single. Jan 05, My gluten-free cookies turned into hockey pucks and my fried fish had to be liberated from their burned rice flour breading. The truth is, most gluten substitutes are also just not as good as the real thing. For example, my girlfriend describes gluten-free pizza crust as having a different consistency.
Sorry, but I just have to say I love how cookies can be an emergency! There really are some wonderful significant others out there. The night we got engaged, he had planned out a safe gluten free dinner at a restaurant - called ahead to work out with the chef what was safe - they even had a special menu and table waiting for us when we arrived.
The good ones are out there!

We can definitely post links to your website on our blog. Hey there! I just need to shareyour story made me smile bc my hubby was the same. I got diagnosed 6 months into our relationship6 months after sharing beer and wings watching the game together.
He looked at me like I had 10 heads and told me we were in it together. He will ask questions when we go out and stop me sometimes to make sure I checked something when I become too trusting. See there are good guys out therethey may be harder to find but when they dothey are the true epitome if Prince Charming!! Good luck! Love this story. The beginning is exactly how I feel- I hope I get my happy ending:. I have to share this post with 2 of my twenty-something kids who now are eating GF confidence is key!!
There are another 90 men which are ok what means:. Our life will be much more easier 2. This goes for a lot more people than just those who are gluten free. When you find someone who wants you to be the best you can be, they will change their habits because they want to. Not because you make them, because they want you as your best self.
It takes some time and a lot of patience but I have realized this and love to share it with others. As for passing along the disease, you have no control over that and there is no sense worrying about it now. You can do it!! Thank you Erica and Glutendude for this amazing post. I stayed glued to my phone looking up GF options half the time and still managed to get glutened.
A nice story with a happy ending. I am a male coeliac. They like to go to nice resturants. So what do you do? I remain alone. It is very hard to meet a woman who will accept this health issue.

Dating is bad news. That made me feel alot better. The anxiety of having to date and telling a guy that he has to brush his teeth before kissing is high. But you made me feel better about the situation. Finding a woman who is willing to brush her teeth is not so easy. Try eating a piece of chocolate and brushing your teeth, now use mouth wash, guess what?
My gluten free dating
Coming Spring Get notified. You and your site, along with all the fantastic people who follow you, have educated me in ways you could never know.
Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I had to let you know how much help your blog has been in getting my husband to understand better what it is like to have Celiac. Thanks GD. I am grateful to bloggers like you for putting some humour into the coeliac discussion.
Thanks for your blog, and for making it a little bit cooler to be a coeliac. Living gluten free is a tough life to live and I think the reality of it that you portray on your blog helps those of us who still struggle with it. Keep up the good work. I come to this blog to feel understood.!
I am so glad I found your website; it has me feel like I'm not alone or 'making thing's up'. This blog has helped me a TON! I live in a very rural area with no local resources for Celiacs. I appreciate someone speaking honestly and from the heart about the down and dirty of celiac. You are aaawesome!!! I found your site today and I have literally spent the whole day reading it.
I learnt some things that months of online trolling for information has failed to teach me Gluten Dude, you really have impacted our two year ride with Celiac Disease.
You reflect such a realistic view on this disease Being a "baby" celiac patient almost 3 months now The seriousness, the comedy, the information, all of it has helped me transition as smoothly as possible. I am ever so grateful to have found your site.
Your frustrations, humor and encouragement have already helped me tremendously to carry on. I just found your website and I wanted to say thanks! Your posts are the most relatable to my own journey that I have found.
I really appreciate the time you put in to help your fellow Celiacs. You are like tonic to the gut, bubbling with humorous dialogue to cure the sad soul of any celiac needing attention. I am lifted from my moody mornings into hope for our future in a healthy community as I read your lines and the comments they generate.
Your take on things is amazingly refreshing.
Do We Really Need A Gluten-Free Dating Site?
I learn more from you than from the dozens hundreds? You done good, Dude! You just made me weep in the frozen food aisle of the grocery store while I wait for yet another prescription for our ever-sickly children!
Thank you Dude!!!!

You rock! I have met so many wonderful people on your blog including YOU! Thank you for all the hard work and energy you put into making this a place with lots of good information, lots of good people and lots of laughter!
As the father of a celiac daughter, I absolutely look forward to reading your blog-word-by-word. Every one. You've got such a talent for storytelling, infectiously. Firm, witty and honest. I subscribe because your humanity shines through my computer screen and I think you are just like the rest of usand on any given day that changes.
I want to thank you for being so honest and supporting a gluten free community that uses their knowledge and power for the good of the community. You are fighting the good fight sir and I appreciate you more than my words can really say. In a time of Omission and Cheerios hawking insta-phonies, I just wanted to say thanks for your tireless work and for keeping your integrity over the years.
You are true and passionate celiac disease advocate, and an important voice to celiacs all over the world. The gluten free diet is scary and confusing, and it doesn't help that it is misrepresented by predatory money grubbers like Papa Johns or Omission I'm still holding a grudge because I was badly glutened by their nasty beer when it first came out.
I understand how easy it is to get discouraged by the gluten-free or celiac phonies, the apathetic medical community, the corrupt food industry, and the ignorant celebrities and media. I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that your contributions to the celiac community are appreciated! I would just like to say a big thank you to you, and all of those who comment on the blog.
Together you have all educated, made me mad, made me cry and most importantly, made me feel like I'm not alone in all this. When I read this blog, it makes me smile and although I wish everyone healing, energy and recovery - it is just so nice to feel normal for a few minutes every day! Thank you, thank you!
The blogs, comments and links from you and others in this community have given me much of my life back. I applaud you, Gluten Dude, for giving us Celiacs a place where we can chat, complain, celebrate and laugh at our all too real struggles. Gluten Dude. I appreciate you, Dude!!! Great blog. I have a coeliac teen and your stuff is perfect for her, a balance of info and fun. Plus she loves anyone who will take a shot at a Kardashian : Way to make being a coeliac cool.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't say it enough. Your knowledge and honesty is like a life raft in an unknown and terrifying ocean. Thank you for all you do to help those of us struggling with this disease!
It is reassuring to hear I am not alone from someone who finds good and bad in your experiences. You help in ways the Dr. And when that finally clicked I started getting better. Seriously, thank you. You are really helping people.
Gluten Dudeyou have touched so many lives and you have a way of making anyone who finds your blog to feel so understood and a part of a welcoming and supportive community. Thanks for your great blog and articles and just everything you do. You bring a bit of hope to my life whenever I feel down and out or tired which happens a lot.
You certainly do help, educate and have me laughing like crazy. Thank you for doing what you do. Thanks Gluten Dude. You rock. You are a hilarious breath of fresh air when I feel like no one except my mom understands. There are people in the Gluten Dude community with fantastic knowledge that has helped me a lot and I've only been reading the Dude's blog for a couple weeks.
It's an awesome place. I am just starting month three of a gluten free lifestyle after finally being diagnosed with celiac disease and your blogs have helped to educate me and my family and put things in perspective. I spent 50 years feeling like crap! As tears roll down my face, I think of how much you have helped and encouraged me and others; I thank you for your humor, your wisdom and your knowledge.
Every day that I feel well, I have you to thank. Because of you, I now eat ubutterfishny.comocessed foods most of the time and the suicidal thoughts are now rare. In essence, you and this support group saved my life. I know I am just one person, but I hope you know how important you are to SO many of us! I just had to write and tell you how much I appreciate your blunt honesty and fighting voice in the celiac community.
While I might not suffer with it, it has been an eye opener to read about just a fraction of what your intimate community faces each and everyday. Hearing the stories and the battles you all have had to face has made me an advocate and given me a desire to fight for you all.
So thank you so much! Thank you for all your struggles and your fight for us celiacs. You have given me a better outlook to living with celiac. You have made me laugh and cry and everything in between and I'm only two weeks into your blog!!! Like John Lennon coaxing Prudence from her room, the Gluten Dude asks other celiacs to come out and play.
