Teen Guys?

Recommended Posts

I have celiac too. I don't usally tell people right off the bat, though most of my friends know. I'm not allowed to date 'till I'm 16... <_< But whatever. Most of my guyfreinds are really sweet about it, though a couple are afraid to let me touch anything. ("Does that have gluten in it?" (talking about a banana) "No, It doesn't ." Does that have gluten in it?" :lol: "Dude, these are POTATO chips. POTATO. not wheat, barley, rye or oats."...) Lol.

I totally understand how you feel.

Especially if its like going out to eat.

For the dances I've been to it has been kind of akward because I usually go with a group of friends so just about everyone needs to know that I have it because we have to go somewhere where I will be able to get something to eat. Also lots of times people tend to forget that I have celiac disease.

but It would be nice to meet a guy who has celiac disease who is actually my age.

Actually, when me and my friends eat out it's often a barbecue, which is great since I love cooking and this way I can read all of the products there are :P. But when we do go out, I just order for myself. There's always something that is wheat free and my friends don't make a fuss about it, which is great;

But yes, dating isn't a problem. I'm not really that into it, but I have gone out with girls, and they never really made a fuss about it.

You know, I was wondering the same thing.

I keep saying I'm going to find a guy with celiac so he will understand how I feel and then there will be no gluten in our house. Haha.

I'm Briana by the way, 15, Southern California.

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.

sorry im NOT a guy but i no EXACTLY what u r going through...im ONLY 13!! Hope that u find a guy that is wat u described! goodluck!

Hey guys, I don't know if any of you live in California, but I'm a freshman at UC Santa Cruz, and it's one of the most amazing places to have Celiac. I just got diagnosed with gluten intolerance (not proven celiac) about 2 weeks ago, and the guys in the dining hall were way ahead of me. They already had rice bread, rice tortillas, they cook their french fries in different fryers than their breaded meats, not to mention the amazing health food stores downtown with gluten-free options.

The biggest problem is not drinking while my stomach recovers, but the people here have been very supportive and understanding when I can't join in the festivities. I even met someone who has a little experience with gluten free beer (not exactly first hand, but he accidentally drank someone else's at a party. So it's around.)

Just thought I'd throw that out there if anybody's considering becoming a banana slug in the future!

Good luck, coping is a b!tch right now, but I'm getting better every day and I'm sure you all are too.

Clubbing is really not a problem. I go out every weekend and I just drink stuff that I know is gluten free. Problem is mainly drinking in more moderation since the stomach is usually rather weak, thus it's easier to feel queasy / sick.
