AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire – MyGlutenFreeDating.com is an innovative online community for gluten-free singles. It provides a fun and safe opportunity for people living a gluten-free lifestyle to connect with others who face the same challenge. A recent study by the NPD Group found that almost one-third of Americans are avoiding gluten or have eliminated it from their diet completely.
While awareness of the gluten-free lifestyle is growing, many people are finding that their level of adherence to a gluten-free diet is heavily influenced by social interactions. Researchers have found that people suffer higher rates of anxiety and fear related to following a gluten-free diet, and that it is hard for those who are gluten-free to strictly adhere to their diet in social situations.
“Being diagnosed with gluten intolerance myself, I know there can be various social limitations when someone is dealing with special dietary restrictions on a date, especially when you are meeting someone new and going out to restaurants often,” said Abel Macias, Founder. “Now, MyGlutenFreeDating.com is the perfect place where people can socialize and find dating partners or friends who understand, share and support the same health views.” MyGlutenFreeDating.com is driven by a desire to make life easier for gluten-free singles.
Trying to navigate dating and friendships while being gluten-free can seem impossible. Gluten intolerance and sensitivity have been proven to negatively influence social behavior in areas such as travel, work, dating, parties, group meals and sharing traditional ethnic cuisine. When members of the Canadian Celiac Association were surveyed, it was found that 81% avoided restaurants, 38% avoided travel and 91% brought their own gluten-free food with them when traveling due to the difficulties of maintaining a gluten-free diet.
People who are gluten-free must be extremely careful and conscious about what they’re exposed to on a daily basis because gluten is present in many foods, drinks and other products like shampoo and toothpaste. Maintaining this lifestyle can be a tremendous challenge for those who are gluten-free, but finding and connecting with someone who supports a gluten-free lifestyle can be even harder.
For less than the price of a latte, members can pursue romance, friendship or other connections with likeminded individuals in an easy to use, safe and comfortable online environment. In honor of the site’s launch, MyGlutenFreeDating.com is proud to offer free trial memberships so singles can get one step closer to building meaningful relationships that support the challenges and rewards of living a gluten-free lifestyle.
