Dating someone with celiac disease

If you look around, there's not really anyone talking about it.As a male with celiac disease, I want to offer my input on dating gluten-free.

While awareness of the gluten-free lifestyle is growing, many people are finding that their level of adherence to a gluten-free diet is heavily influenced by social interactions.

Gluten intolerance and sensitivity have been proven to negatively influence social behavior in areas such as travel, work, dating, parties, group meals and sharing traditional ethnic cuisine.

When members of the Canadian Celiac Association were surveyed, it was found that 81% avoided restaurants, 38% avoided travel and 91% brought their own gluten-free food with them when traveling due to the difficulties of maintaining a gluten-free diet.

When making toast one morning, he put his bread in my toaster and then dipped his “gluten-full” knife in my peanut butter.

We now own two toasters and aren’t afraid to use multiple knives at once. Lucky for him I am an active food blogger, so he gets to experience new meals every week, and actually has learned to enjoy my gluten-free fare!
