why is it hard for guys to date a deaf girlPage 5 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
I have enough trouble getting dates from any women, I'm not about to turn down someone cuz they're deaf. I already know the signs for turtle, cat, and toilet. What more do I need?

Goofy, I wasn't serious you know. What I meant was it was hard to sign in the shower when you are having sex. Somebody has to hold the soap.

I would date a deaf girl. I have 40% hearing between two ears with hearing aides. And one ear doesn't work at all. Explaining to a deaf person what a clangor at a railroad crossing sounds like, is the same as trying to describe blue to a blind person.

But you know what wonderful is? It is hearing the sound of a keyboard when you never knew it clicked. That was me.

Yes I would date a deaf girl.

I believe that if a person is willing to take the time to learn to communicate, then anything is possible- that is applicable in any relationship really.


You're absolutely right. Communication is the key to any relationship.

I wouldn't find it hard to date someone who was deaf. In fact, I'd probably learn as much sign-language as I could before I'd ask them out! :)

I DID once date a deaf girl. She was deaf from about 2 years old and so could read lips very, very well. But, if we were out with another couple, she would get extremely frustrated because the conversation would come spontaneously from one of the other three of us, which she was unable to predict and so couldn't follow the conversation. On the other hand, one-on-one, she was the best listener I've ever known. And so expressive with her eyes and face and body language, which was cool. Her speech was strange at times - sometimes sounded almost mentally-challenged, but other times sort of European, which was very sexy. Phone conversations most interesting of all: I call through special BellSouth number, operator calls her number, light blinks at her house, she places phone on a special receiver connected to her computer; she types "hello", operator repeats her words, as if her; I talk to operator as if her; operator types in to her and so on. Got reallllllly weird when operator was male. First call was what sounded to be a black man with a deep voice. I ask her out. He says (deep voice), "Yeah ... I'd love to hook up with you. Maybe we meet at a nice restaurant." Very weird! Some operators just read back in flat tone; others got melodramatic. But, to get to the question: I shared this because as you hopefully can see, it's not something you can't overcome. You adjust very quickly to her deafness and it just seems normal after awhile. So, please, guys, don't ever pass up a deaf girl for being deaf. They compensate for their handicap in some amazing, and I tell you, AMAZING ways and are some of the best communicators you will ever meet!

lol I can so relate... it gets weird for me too... thats pretty much why i prefer using email or text msging... kind of cuts out the middle man and kind of... "i'm saying what I want" and you know its coming from me kind of a thing. soo yeah there are different ways you can communicate with someone.

If the title is a serious question...

I've got to agree with the communication problem. But, so long as she could write on a peice of paper, or I could learn sign language, or find SOME WAY to communicate. I don't see why I couldn't.

when your in basic training you will recieve a card with sign and morse code on it, only the truly serious use it, and it comes in handy during blackout training, no noises and flash surpressors, but going to linguistics at ft irwin califoirnia i learned spanish and military sign...so it would still be hard, but id still date a deaf girl even a mute, pen and paper are readily availible whenever voices cant be used

Pondering the sight : durring intercourse female scribbling frantic and quickly passing notes "faster!" "deeper!" "no..not there"


Sometimes it just wouldn't cut it

I love peace and quiet. We can write and type what we have to say to each other. I would wish I could hear her sweet voice. I really would wish she could hear mine.

That is if I ever date a deaf girl.

peace and quiet is what I know of in the morning and night as i sleep. during the day I talk. like a normal person. I can hear like a normal person, just not as good. I remind myself, not to take it all for granted for without the gift of my implant, I would always remain in the world of simply peace and quiet and just spoken words.

I think dating a deaf girl would probably be a great thing for me. Im not so good with words when im nervous, but I can drawl really good. Having a conversation based on pictures could be kinda fun, but I would definiately learn how to sign ASAP.

I think it would be hard to date a deaf girl only because whatever she did with her hands I would wonder what she might be saying.

Being deaf myself I have to say i have never had problems dating however, I had many problems with people being ignorant assumming that because I am deaf I must be dumb. They soon found out the truth!

i've got no reason to discriminate...it's all about the person...not the problem.

years ago i dated a girl who was 80% blind. the only part where i laughed at her was when she told me i was the best looking guy she ever dated. maybe it was mean...or maybe i'm one hell of a hot blur!

I would not have a problem dating a deaf girl. There are many ways of communicating with someone. It is being in the presence with someone that you care about, and enjoying their company, and not their disability. If you choose to judge them by their disability, then it is you who is the loser !
