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.

You must be ready to understand and take your partner the way he or she is.

Many people are always afraid speaking about the status of their deaf partners leading to self-denial especially the friends.

This is due to several reasons, excessive background noise and unfamiliarity with my voice. Since I discovered boys, I learnt through trial and error on putting them at ease.

I prepare guys before the date so they know what they are expecting. FACT Please don’t view deaf people very different from you.

, London, United Kingdom I have found love from last year June 2010.

We are engaged at the moment and will be getting married next year summer 2012.

This will also give better ways to and unfortunately, the guy did not know either to write or communicate well.

This ultimately led to relationship break up due to poor communication between the guy and the lady.

I have sat through many of my dates and can count on one hand when it has been awkward.
