Are you thinking about what you’ll wear and where you’ll go, or that it could be an extremely anxiety-producing activity?
While I imagine this is great for people who actually have Celiac Disease or are gluten intolerant, it still seems a little crazy to narrow down your dating pool to something this specific.
It’s also because you, as a gluten-free person, might not want to hold hands with someone who was just holding a sandwich, in case you forget and touch your own food afterwards.
Or you may not want to tongue-kiss someone who drinks beer, because research suggests that food particles linger in saliva for hours in high enough quantities to trigger reactions.
And, eventually, if you start thinking about moving in together, you won’t want your squeeze to move a bunch of gluten into your kitchen. 3) Convincing someone who doesn’t need to eat gluten-free to eat gluten-free just so you can be together is hard. Everyone is gluten-free, so you can concentrate on things such as, say, your sexual orientation. In the founders’ words, this is a network in which “you never have to feel alone, awkward, or a burden because you are gluten-free.” This implies that around “normal” people, you feel this way—but that shouldn’t be the case.
Because, let’s face it, eating gluten-free kinda sucks. If the site manages to amass a large enough pool of daters, it could make dating more convenient. Of course, shared qualities and logistics play a role in every relationship.
