Since my eardrums still work, I can sense vibrations from noisy things like stereos, megaphones, or shrill whistles if I'm within vicinity, but without my bilateral cochlear implants, my brain is oblivious to sounds. By the time I was 18 months old, I was declared profoundly deaf, meaning I cannot hear anything.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. She could read lips very well, spoke very well, and it wasn't a problem.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... I am an independent deaf girl who knows what she really wants. Interestingly, she's the one that didn't feel the "chemistry" thing and didn't want to go out again.
They never find out I’m a lot of fun like other people in general; and I like the outdoors, riding bikes, and camping.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I have dated hearing guys and had hearing boyfriends in the past. Mmmm..not wanting to go out with someone I can't communicate with makes me shallow? My main fear about going out with a deaf girl would be that she is bitter and judgemental and blames everyone else for the things she can't control. Yes that's how dating works, you either feel or dont feel anything for that person.
No matter how many people I message despite disclosing my deafness on my profile (I feel this is the right way to do so that I am not deceiving guys and at the same time giving them a choice.) I know there are some great guys out there, and how could I encourage them to reply even if it is just friendship (will have to update my profile) but I know unfortunately there are shallow people online who will not date anyone disabled due to the difficulties for instance problems with communication. Its just a preference but if a deaf guy came along and dazzled me with his personality then great! If it was the other way around, more deaf and few hearing. Kentish-Man - I sometimes get the impression that people go for the appearance but not the personality.
Woman C: I was born with hearing, but I gradually lost it over time.
Woman B: I've been deaf since I was about 2 years old.
