That is a good idea, some one should start something!

The experience of the person who started www.celiacsingles.com seems to be the norm. If I understand correctly, there are just too few celiacs to make it work or make it financially viable.

A simple alternative might be for interested celiacs to collectively agree on one of the popular match sites (match.com, Yahoo personals, etc.) and use it. If everyone was on the same site and made sure to use a keyword, such as gluten, or celiac in their profile, then those profiles could be easily found with a keyword search which most sites provide. At the same time, many sites permit people to post profiles without paying a fee. You are not allowed to send a message to anyone but your profile can still be posted. With so few celiacs so geographically dispersed, a match becomes somewhat unlikely. Being able to post a profile without having to pay a fee means you don't have to throw away money for something that might not work anyway. A fee is paid only when and if you find someone you want to contact. With that hurdle removed, more celiac singles might get involved.

Just a thought.

Why do you want to date only Celiacs? I've got to tell you in my experience (which is vast) of trying to find the right person over many decades... I'd certainly not limit myself to any small group it really limits the chances of finding someone.

I've got a wonderful non Celiac boyfriend now (6+ year relationship) and he knew me when I was a gluten eater and when we found out I have to be gluten-free he was on board immediately. He watched me get better and never wants to see me that sick again. When he is with me he is gluten-free and that suits him fine. At home he eats some gluten but not much.

When we travel or go out to dinner unless its a "known" gluten-free restaurant he will call ahead and talk to them and when we get to the place he will do it all over again, ask to speak to the chef and so forth (I think he likes taking charge!). Really he's a gem and I'm sure there are other guys out there that are just as considerate.

Oh well either way... good luck!

I understand totally why you would like to date someone who is also a celiac. It makes perfect sense to me! It would make life so much easier and the balance would be great. Just don't limit yourself to that balance. If it happens, then wonderful, yet if the right person comes along, and that person isn't gluten free, then don't let that person go, just because of that one fact. We can live life, quite happily, with the gluten world, we just have to set limits. I have yet to be with a gluten free man, and I have never been glutened by a kiss, nor anything more. Diabetic's do not need to date diabetic's, nor do we "need" to date celiac's. Just makes it easier. Good luck!

In terms of dating & relationships, I kinda look at Celiac as just one more thing that makes us unique. Everyone has differences and quirks, and often that's what makes relationships dynamic, fun, and interesting. A guy I dated last year was literally fascinated by my gluten issues... He did his own research, bought me a gluten free dining guide, scouted out local restaurants, bought me gluten free goodies, and even made me gluten free cookies from a mix (he was sooo proud 'cause he had NEVER baked before!).

And I have to agree with what pixiegirl said... finding the right person is hard enough even when you aren't being super-specific about certain "requirements." :)

GlutenFreeDate.com is not a website created to limit your options on dating. It was created to allow new options for Celiacs and people choosing to live a gluten free lifestyle. Please, DO NOT limit yourself to people who are Celiacs. Wouldn't it be cool to meet someone, even just more friends, who are Celiacs? I'm all for more support in a community! Celiac is a chronic condition that can be taxing on ANY relationship. You're going to need to find a very special person to stick with you for the long haul. Plus, I want to french kiss someone, on the spur of the moment, without worrying about getting sick :) HA!
