Dating for the hearing impaired
If you're deaf, hard-of-hearing, ASL, hearing-impaired or otherwise and you're tired of the "regular" dating sites, join us now for free.Stop struggling and being frustrated trying to find that special love of your life.I’m lucky I found someone early in my life so I didn’t have to deal with the stressful dating game for long.
We sat down and started talking, firstly about the dating website and how we found it. Thinking back quickly through the conversation, could my job have put her off or did I inadvertently call her fat (she wasn’t)? Needless to say, I was somewhat offended and blocked her. This time, I shall tell them I am deaf before we meet. I got some views, people started messaging me and I hit it off with a few women….fantastic! ‘Just so you aware, I am deaf, but don’t worry, I can still talk and communicate with you’. After a (long) while being single, I decided I would try the internet dating thing a try.A number of my (hearing) friends have had great success with them. The rest continued talking for a while, but then either tailed off or ‘met someone else’. I made it clear that I was deaf, but iterated that I did not need to bring an interpreter to any dates because I speak. I had one woman email me saying that she understood about being deaf and dating as she had a kid! I even had a terp emailing me telling me that I was really brave for going on a hearing dating site! Yes, you may get fewer responses, but in the long run it is far less hurtful.No reason why not, just never met someone who interested me or was interested in me.But then, I don’t really socialise in deaf circles.
