San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) July 24, 2013 -- GlutenFreeSingles.com (http://www.GlutenFreeSingles.com) today launched as a new online dating resource exclusively for the gluten-free (GF) community. This is the first network of its kind where those who are single who have either celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity can easily connect with others who share the same health goals and understand the challenges and rewards of living a gluten-free lifestyle.
Founded by two friends (one with celiac disease, the other with a gluten sensitivity) with a passion for fitness, nutrition and an overall healthy lifestyle, GlutenFreeSingles.com is designed to bring people with common lifestyles together, while helping to eliminate some of the awkward situations that can sometimes be associated with dating on a gluten-free diet.
“Being diagnosed with celiac disease myself, I know that there can be a host of embarrassing situations that arise when dealing with special dietary needs on a date – especially when you are meeting someone new and going out to restaurants often. GlutenFreeSingles.com is a unique place where you can socialize and find gluten-free dating partners – or friends who share the same health goals,” said Marcella Romaya, co-founder GlutenFreeSingles.com. “We know that relationships last longer when partners have similar lifestyle needs and common interests, so we built this site to help the entire gluten-free community connect and develop happy fulfilled, long-term connections…and of course, love!”
The gluten-free lifestyle is not a trend that is slowing down any time soon. In fact, according to a recent study by NPD Group, three million Americans have celiac disease, which is four times more common than it was 50 years ago. Further, 30 percent of the adult population in the United States is now gluten-free – whether they are in fact diagnosed with celiac disease, or have a gluten intolerance or wheat allergy.
“There is a time and a place to educate food-servers, restaurateurs and dining partners about the danger of cross-contamination and villi damage from gluten…a first date, is not that place or time,” said Hillary Kane, communications director of the Celiac Disease Foundation (http://www.celiac.org). “It is a gift to be able to focus on whether or not someone is compatible with you for reasons other than their willingness to embrace your gluten-free lifestyle.”
