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’.
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.
It was fun at first, writing a profile, and then looking for matches. Then we started talking about meeting up – this whole internet dating malarkey is paying off! Whether this is connected or not, I don’t know, but of the women who I was in conversation with, not one of them agreed to meet me after I revealed I was deaf. The number of views stayed the same, but the number of people contacting me tailed off quite significantly.
Communication problems and socially awkward situations can make hearing and Ho H dates a nightmare.
That's why we started this free deaf dating site to help you find friendship, love, even marriage.
So, what are the best tips that you need to know in deaf dating? We all know that most deaf can never communicate perfectly without the use of signs.
You have to learn their signs before being in a position to communicate with them.
And develop relationships that can last a lifetime. If any lover wants to be interested in someone then is very good and great...
