In Defense Of GlutenfreeSingles And Other Strangely Specific Dating Sites tumblr lqc8xvLv5f1qbautoo1 500 jpgGood news for singles with Celiacs Disease: there’s an online dating site specifically for you and your ilk called GlutenfreeSingles. So far, the internet hive mind largely seems to think that this is ridiculous probably because both online daters and gluten free people are highly criticized, but I think GlutenfreeSingles is kind of a great idea.

We all know Jack Sprat who could eat no fat and his wife who could eat no lean style couples who have wildly different eating habits yet manage to be in love and most of us probably wouldn’t give a damn if our romantic partners were vegan or kosher or only ate buttery noodles, but most of us would also probably agree that eating is a huge part of our lives. Dining is a bonding experience and sharing food with someone you love can be surprisingly nice.

For some, a romantic partner’s eating habits and dietary restrictions could be critical. Maybe whether or not someone is comfortable digesting gluten doesn’t seem important to you, but if it’s important to someone and they can find others like them easily, who cares? If I had a horrible allergy or other aversion to a food, I might want to meet people who shared that with me.

Part of the beauty of online dating is the ability to filter through people and narrow down options based on your preferences and deal breakers. If you can isolate a specific quality you want from a partner and there’s a dating site for it, why not sign up and see if you can find love? There are dating sites for all kinds: sea captains, stoners, and humans who identify as vampires to name a few. Maybe the dating pools will be a little to small due to such serious specificity, but these weirdos might find the oddly specific right person for on there. I would sign up big time for a dating website tailor made to my taste.

Here are 5 dating websites that would help me find a boyfriend I could really jive with:

Netflix Binge Watcher Match– Finds potential matches based on what shows you’re currently watching all of as rapidly as possible.

Condiments Can Totally Be Eaten Alone Date– Must love peanut butter.

Bearded Bros And Brunette Betties with Bangs Cupid– It could also be called “Brooklyn Babes.”

Morbid Match– Be bummed out together.

Insomniac Dreamboats– Looking for someone to be the last thing I’d think about before falling asleep, if sleeping was something I did.
