Speak Out : I’m Deaf And Dating Is Tricky!
Hey guys, I received an email from a cool dude, The12thSalmon, one of our loyal member. He’s been using A4A for years to find sex or to date guys. He told me he sometimes have a hard time meeting guys when he admits to them that he is deaf. He sent me a note 2 days ago asking me my opinion if he should or not post it in his profile etc.
I was really touched by him asking me this, first of all because he trusts me and knows I won’t judge him but also because I’m very sensitive with guys with different conditions and it makes me sad that because one person is different than the majority, he should be excluded. I was excluded when I was younger because I had pimples, because I was too skinny, because I was gay, because I had big ears etc…And it’s not fun to be excluded, for whatever reasons.
So, my friend The12thSalmon wants to know, do you guys want to know about one’s deafness upfront or wait until you meet on the first date? Is it something that would stop you from dating a guy? Would you date a deaf guy?
Thanks guys, greatly appreciated!
