I am a profoundly deaf oralist and have been since birth.
I have been in various relationships with hearing people, but never a deaf person.
Don’t allow your hearing impairment to affect how you live your life.
Be confident in your own abilities and approach life like any other confident person would.
She arrived (which is a good start), I bought her a glass of wine and myself a pint of bitter. So off to the loo she popped……and she never came back! She replied back, apologetically and stated that she did not know I was deaf and it felt wrong to date a ‘vulnerable adult’!!
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’.

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.
Your crush is the person you are having the conversation with, and the interpreter is just there to translate.
When youre with your crush, dont order for them at restaurants or tell others what they want. Also there are many parents of deaf children online.
