Started Dating - Dreading "the Talk" in Coping with Celiac Disease Posted July 21, 2010 · Report to Admin Aww, Jason, you worry too much! I've dated guys with diabetes, guys who were vegetarian and guys who were kosher and guys who had allergies. It's no biggie and we gals understand. Start off easy, like, I have to follow a specific diet for health reasons, so how was your day? You don't need to go into great detail. She'll probably ask questions and you can say, like diabetics can't have sugar I can't have gluten which is in breads, pasta, etc. Luckily there's lots of gluten free foods I can have. I think tell her about Celiac but leave the discussion on parasites until you're engaged, maybe marrried. Too funny!
