8 Reasons to Date a Celiac
2. You get all the free gluten free samples your celiac significant other has too much of.
The huge bag in my other hand? Nothing but food in the form of 4 Tupperware lunches and dinners, a jar of chia seed pudding, 1/2 pound of mixed raw veggies and dip, a mix of Oatless Oatmeal, sunbutter, mixed seeds and fruit.
4. You'll get to eat Chipotle every date night.

6. You'll learn how to read package labels.
Even though I've been a part of the celiac family for over a year now, food guilt still hits me at random times. I feel bad when the maid offers me part of her lunch and I don't know how to say, "Gluten makes my stomach explode" in Spanish. I hate it when friends try to cook a gluten free meal, but I can't eat it because of cross contamination. Or because it contains other ingredients my stomach has learned to hate (dairy, I'm looking at you!).

So happy early Valentine's Day, everybody - celiacs, celiac lovers, and gluten lovers alike! Dating a celiac has its challenges - a picky stomach, post-gluten zombification, and quirks that make people laugh out loud. But, at least in my experience, dating a celiac can still be pretty sweet.
