Teen Guys?

Recommended Posts

Hey Just wondering if there were any teen guys here that have celiacs. I think that is the hardest part about Celiacs. If a guy wants to take you out its is hard and you have to go through this big ordeal at the resturant trying to decide what to eat. Its embarrasing. I mean theyare always understanding but still it would be cool to meet a guy who knows whatI am going through and we could annoy the waiter together.

Yes, many that will respond. But if I recall, this is exam week. Aside from school work, an answer to your questions should come soon.....

Be patient and a comrade will come forth. :)

I totally know how you feel! I don't date at all anymore because I feel so stupid...I actually don't even go to restaraunts anymore at all. Other teens just aren't that understanding, even my closest friends :( The only time I ever get anything from a restaraunt is when my family orders sushi and picks it up and brings it home. LoL.

I totally know what you mean. I don't ever go out with friends unless its sushi. I am always so worried about it. And I don't know how to meet celiac guys so I am always wondering if I will meet them if I go to GIG meetings. UGH! Why does it have to be so socially awkward?

Haha funny that you mention GIG meetings...because that's the only way I think I'll meet any guys too! LoL. Sadly, I even looked it up and there are no support groups or meetings in my area :( At least I dont think there is...

I'm 16 and male. To be honest, your chances of meeting a celiac in the same general area, who is also your age and male is pretty slim. I'd suggest that you just avoid restaurants (at least at first). Try the movies or something less food-oriented.... I only eat out with good friends.

It is hard to find someone who understands you (none of my dates had any sort of intolerence to any food, and i kept getting funny looks). When i was at school (finished 2006) my friends, at first, didnt even know what gluten was, then decided it would be cool to see my reaction if they fed me wheat (i didnt take offense, its just what mates do). Then they accepted it and even started helping me find the right foods (one of my mates got me into some really cool protein supplements). It's alot harder for me now that I'm in the defence force (the DI kept throwing bread at me until i explained the reason why i get different food), but I've never been happier; I'm the first coeliac (thats how we Aussies spell it) to get into a para-infantry unit (3 RAR), and hopefully the first coeliac to get into the 4th Battallion Royal Australian Regiment Commando Division.

Hey guys!

I'm not technically a "teen" anymore, I'm almost 21, but I wanted to share really quick..

Dating really is not as scary as it seems. I have had two wonderful boyfriends since getting diagnosed and they were both so wonderful and so sweet about it.

We hung out a few times w/o eating (going to the movies etc) and I explained celiac. Both of them were so understanding and willing to help.

One of them even went to the health food store to find gluten-free cookies when i was sick! We sat and watched a movie eating them and Rice Dream ice cream.

Here is my point, if the guy or girl is worth your time, they will be sweet about it. Pardon my French, but there is no way that any of us will date a**holes because they won't deal with us. We all know that we will all end up with great guys or girls because they will be so sweet and understanding about our celiac. Look at celiac as a personal "screening system" only the good guys/girls will get through!!!

It really isn't too hard. It would be convenient to have a celiac boyfriend or girlfriend but not necessary.

I totally understand wanting to meet fellow celiacs, I want to do that too!

Anyway, just wanted to share my two cents! Have a great day!

Hello everyone!!

My name is Marta, im 16 years old and celiac too. I live in Spain, Europe.

Im writing this cos i ever wanted to do an exchange with another teenager to learn english, but it was been complicated to find a family where they could prepare celiac food.

What i would like to do is to meet here on this forum someone celiac to make this exchange. First, he/she would stay in my house next summer for 3 or 4 weeks, visiting Barcelona (this is the city where i live) and arround it. It is very nice. And then, i would go to his house and stay there also for 3 or 4 weeks.

Of course this person should be interested in learning spanish, but if you dont have a very high level doesnt mind, my mum and my big sister speak english too. But it would be better if you are really interested in spanish.

For all the ones that could be interested in this exchange, please, contact me on:

martulinaft@hotmail.com

hope you write soon!!

ciaoo

i think i got it i tell everyone, all though im not classified as a teen, im 22 now....

i dont care what people think. where i grew up i learned to keep my ground and if people can send out insults/threats/punches they should be well & ready to receive one back that will hurt twice as much...
