Gluten-Free Tip: KISSING

If you’re dating someone who eats gluten, think before you kiss. While it is generally okay to receive a peck on the cheek from wheat-eaters (except from my slobbery great-aunt in France), mouth-to-mouth contact is a different story. Ask your partner to rinse out his/her mouth after eating anything with gluten before kissing you (brushing teeth is preferable).

What about being spontaneous with someone you just met? It’s not a bad idea to somehow encourage (lure?) that person to drink some water or non-gluten liquid (i.e. most sodas, pure juice, etc.) before making-out. Order or offer drinks and sip frequently to subliminally get the point across. However, if the person you’re flirting with is munching away on restaurant/party appetizers you should bring up your gluten-intolerance. It will break the ice before you get any more intimate.
