I'm happily married so I don't have to deal with the dating aspect of this, but I thought this was a nice article. It is especially relevant to me because in the last few months I've had to start having my wife warn me if she is wearing certain lipstick (or any) for that matter. :/

I did like this quote from the article though:

In an email discussing our airport picnic date, this is what I wrote: I have a special request. Do you mind washing off your face and rinsing out your mouth after eating your regular double egg muffin combo whatchmacallit at BOI big smile? It may seem like its not necessary, but it does make a difference to know that when I give you a kiss, I will have the peace of mind that it is gluten-free. D***, sometimes asking directly and specifically for what you need is hard.

Isn't that so true? And tiring too.

Yes, it takes every bit of spontaneity out of the first kiss, if you don't want it to be the kiss of death.

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.

It is a huge learning curve. I did really well in my first month of gluten-free but didn't really believe that things like kisses and pots could make that much of a difference. Now that I've eliminated all those "tiny" sources like gluteny kisses and non stick pots my recovery has been amazing!

Busy mom to 3 great kids (4, 8 and 18)

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.
