Young adults with food allergies face many challenges as they grow older, particularly when they go off to college. While going to college is stressful for most teens, for those with a food allergy it can be particularly unsettling. As they start the process of managing food allergies by themselves, they often find it difficult to date, make friends and connect with others who are sensitive to what it means to live with a serious food allergy.
A new website was recently launched that is a dating/meeting site for young adults with food allergies. AllergicAttraction.com is targeted at college kids to address the issues that come with managing food allergies independently. Teens and young adults are at the highest risk for managing their food allergies appropriately, and who they socialize with impacts how successfully they manage their allergies.
The cause is near and dear to the hearts of the founding partners, and they saw an opportunity in today's social media market to encourage young adults with food allergies to meet and connect with others. They hope to create a growing network for young adults to come together and date in a positive and safe way.
The site officially launched on September 8, 2014 and is the only dating site for young adults with food allergies.
