Dating for the celiac
If certain people can’t see past it, they aren’t worth your time anyway.
Dating is never going to be easy, but it can be even harder when you also have to deal with celiac disease.
Ms Strobel, 48, was searching for gluten-free restaurants online when she stumbled across the niche dating website that changed her life.
It was on Gluten Free that she met Dale Graff, one of 25,000 members on the site who not only look for love but also share information on health and wellness, recipes and resources for the gluten-free lifestyle.
However, with your situation and your celiac disease, you are better off choosing the location and the activity.
You probably have go-to places that you know are safe and you’ll be able to be yourself and have more fun if you know the things around you won’t make you sick.
If you find the restaurant isn’t going to accommodate you when you talk to them over the phone, suggest a different location you know will.
If things move forward with the relationship, they are going to need to know about it.Instead of feeling embarrassed about the questions you have to ask, call the restaurant ahead of time and check things out.Then, when you arrive, you’ll know what you can and cannot order and how to ask for certain things to get them in the right manner.That would have been a worry rather than a hobby if we weren’t on the same diet.“We’re in this together – it’s not a case of one person getting irritated because they can eat anywhere and the other worried about spending the next week on the toilet.” Based in San Diego, California, the site was launched in January 2013 by Marcella Romaya, who is also coeliac, and Sheri Grande.
Even though you likely don’t want it to be the case, celiac disease is a big part of your life.
