RELATIONSHIPS & DATING

Having food allergies can complicate one's relationship. You have to make sure they avoid your allergens before kissing you, and when going on dates, it can be difficult finding a restaurant that can cater to your allergies. 

When you are in a relationship, make sure you alert your significant other about your food allergies. You should teach them how to inject epinephrine in case an unexpected allergic reaction occurs. 

Tips for Dating with Food Allergies

- Make sure your significant other understand your allergies 

- Ask what they have eaten before you kiss. Kissing someone who has recently eaten your allergen can lead to a reaction 

-Teach your partner how to use your epinephrine auto-injector 

-Consider food-free dates such as bowling, golfing, or the movies

-Cook together! You can cook some allergy-friendly meals and bond over the delicious food you made together
