  1. Hi, I started seeing a girl not too long ago who has celiac disease. I'm trying to educate myself at the moment and make sure I know exactly how it works, just to take away any risks of me causing her to be sick or anything. I think its great how you switched the to the gluten free diet with your wife. Taking it on when you don't actually have to, is something not everyone would do. she's actually quite lucky because most people are pretty selfish that way. so I take me hat off to you sir. I'm seeing this girl i think nearly three months so very early days and I'm still very young, i'm 23, so it's not the same obviously. but if it comes to it being serious and turns into something, which I'm hoping it does, I'd like to be able to do that for her. Before this, I never knew anyone who was celiac, I had no idea what it was and I feel now that it sounds ignorant to not know what it was, but its not very common, it took me 23 years before I met someone who had it after all. so as much as it absolutely needs to be recognized, I can see why its so unknown to the rest of the public, which I'm seeing now for anyone who has celiac disease must get frustrating sometimes. like when waiters just guess at foods that are gluten free because they don't understand. what would worry me if i'm honest, would be if she doesn't keep to a gluten free diet, will this cause her to get moody and potentially cause her to fight with me? that may be a stupid question I just don't know how that works. I've read it effects people's moods if you don't keep to the diet strictly, but I don't know how much and I know she has a habit of losing interest in guys fairly quickly because they annoy her and its in the back of my mind could that be a part of it and how can I stop it from happening at this stage if at all. I'm not around long enough to say anything about her diet. she doesn't even know i'm looking it up.
