Gluten-Free? There's A New Dating Website For You

by Carrie Murphy

Are you gluten-free? Single? Then get your butt on over to, the brand new site where you can find a boyfriend or girlfriend who is not contaminated with even a little bit of wheat protein.

Although I feel being gluten-free is often associated with being prissy and oversensitive (despite the rapidly-growing popularity of gluten-free diets), celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity is a real condition that causes actual health problems. Celiac disease is thought to affect one in 133 people and in people with related symptoms, as much as one in 56. That's why I think this new gluten-free dating site is pretty awesome. The site says it's open to anyone who eschews gluten:

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.

I'm gluten-sensitive, so I try to avoid eating products containing gluten, especially when I'm at home. My boyfriend is a proud gluten-eater, though, and we have no problems sharing a household. Still, if you're someone who suffers from a serious case of celiac, I can definitely see how it would be appealing to be in a relationship with someone who is also gluten-free. There would also be a lot less awkward explanations of why you can't partake from the bread basket on a first date and less arguing over what restaurant to go to.

So, go forth and multiply, gluten-free single people! I'm wishing you love, happiness, and almond flour wedding cake.
