Deaf girl dating must love dogs speed dating
In this week's Sex Talk Realness, spoke with three women who are deaf to find out what it's really like to date as someone who is differently abled. Now, I have started to refer to myself as deaf because I no longer think it's such a bad thing.
Woman A: In the past, I liked "hearing impaired" or "hard of hearing." I didn't like to refer to myself as being deaf because to me, being deaf meant I had absolutely no hearing.
I'd also have to try and find a well-lit place so I could see him and read his lips.
Sexually, there was always the issue of whether I should keep my hearing aids (and later, cochlear implants) on or not.
I was nervous that they'd see them and think, "Oh man, I'm about to be with a disabled person. I had a few people scream at me, which was very upsetting, especially since often times I could hear them but I couldn't understand anything they are saying. Woman B: Again, there's no difference in my sex life with a hearing man or d/Deaf man.
Woman A: I had my first boyfriend at 14, but not a "real" one until I was 21. Woman C: I didn't have an official date until my freshman year of high school.
