Gluten-free and single? You may have found your perfect match: a new dating site, appropriately named, matches singles who are gluten-free due to disease or by choice.

The website's intro reads, "GlutenfreeSingles is a dating, networking, and informative website where you never have to feel alone, awkward, or a burden because you are gluten-free. Our website is a welcoming place where people can find gluten-free dating partners, friends, and activity groups."

In a HuffPost Live interview, the site's co-founder Marcella Romaya explains she was inspired to start a dating site due to her own struggles with dating.

"[Dating] ... is quite difficult in this day and age. And then you add gluten-free and dairy-free dietary restrictions" she adds, "my dating pool got very small."

That's how GlutenfreeSingles was started. By gathering interested gluten-free singles, everyone has a better change at meeting like-minded people.

Romaya also explains that it is much easier to focus on the connection between two people when the problem of dietary restrictions is set aside.

"When you meet someone who is gluten-free and you're dating them, it's so much easier," she says. "You understand each other, you can order the same foods, same meal, you can share the same meal, and basically your gluten issue, the food issue, is just brushed under the table and you can focus on your chemistry."

With the new emergence of niche dating websites such as and -- a new dating site geared towards singles looking for partners who prefer country living -- who's to say what niches will soon be covered by dating sites.

Are you taken but have a great idea for a niche dating site? Maybe this is a business endeavor to consider as more niche websites increase in popularity.
