passionsnetwork People who are deaf, or who are dealing with hearing issues in general can find dating to be problematic.Whether someone is completely deaf, partially deaf, going deaf, or just hard-of-hearing, there are some real communication issues that can arise when dating.
A recent thread on Reddit featured a 20-year-old deaf woman who said she really wanted to have sex, but she was scared to. I was legally deaf, but I had a tiny bit of hearing.
She said she worried about how she would sound to the people she had sex with, especially since she'd read a lot of comments online that mocked deaf people having sex. Referring to myself as deaf made me feel like all hope for me ever being able to hear was lost.
How does it impact the types of dates that work best? Many of my friends with hearing loss say that if they cannot hear someone well on the first date, there is never a second date.
Most people don’t change the way they speak, so why start something that will only lead to frustration and heartache down the road. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here are some tips for successful dating with hearing loss. Don’t be shy about suggesting the location of the date.
