the ultimate food high
It’s important that the person you love loves what you love—corny or not, this is rather significant for a functional relationship. Remembering that dating should be the result of some mutual affections, let’s take a look at three websites that act as matchmakers for the most passionate of lovers out there: food lovers.

1. Gluten-Free Singles
If you’re gluten-free, it’s crucial that your partner is also gluten-free to avoid the inevitable argument that will ensue when someone decides to eat pizza on a romantic night out. With that in mind, some brilliant lad developed this dating website so gluten-intolerant folks could be removed from the non-Celiac dating pool once and for all. We just want our damn pasta, okay?!
2. Singles with Food Allergies
This website pairs members who have allergies to the most universally beloved foods. Two shellfish-intolerants can go on a date, so love can be found sans lobster. The “deathly-allergic peanut chick” and the always annoying “allergic-to-all-forms-of-yeast kid” can find matches who are not put off by their dietary restrictions. Because everyone deserves love, especially those who cannot experience the sheer ecstasy that is peanut butter.
This highly sexist and elitist website aims to prove that chivalry isn’t dead—it’s just handicapped—by providing wealthy old men who love “food” with women who also love “food” for a dinner date. Clearly based off of a mutual love for cuisine that is bound to satisfy, it asks the real questions needed to find love, like “How old are you?” and “What type of man are you looking for?” If your love for food perfectly matches up with someone else’s, then you’ll be set up on a date where “going Dutch” is highly against the rules.
