Goa girl sex chat - Deaf people dating

I’m aware that I’m putting a picture forward of a series of huge obstacles to a deaf-hearing relationship working, but never fear – here’s the good news. And accepting that communication with everyone in each other’s social circle might not ever be perfect, but you’ll make the best of it.

I’ve seen relationships that work, and don’t work, that stayed together, and sadly (or not so sadly in some cases) broke up.

I’ve met Deaf people who swear they’d never go out with a hearing person (which seems a tad discriminatory – we wouldn’t like it if a hearing person said they’d never date a Deafie, would we?

At that stage, what can happen is that one or both of them start becoming reluctant to mix with the other’s friends.

It starts with avoiding nights out, or social events, and the other partner is then left with a choice.

To not get annoyed when their partner forgets the right sign?

To not close their eyes in the middle of an argument, shutting the other person out?

Will they feel relaxed enough to be themselves, when they’re not sure how to communicate and they’re worried they might be misunderstood?

Other Deaf people come from hearing families, which is easier for the hearing partner.

The most important thing is to be polite and attentive.

I grew up in a Deaf family, and since I was young, I’ve met deaf people who are in relationships with other deaf people, and deaf people who are in relationships with hearing people.

I could go into a whole other area – of what happens when children arrive. It requires mutual respect for each other’s communication needs and cultural backgrounds.
