this feels like a very special episode of something.

    Ok, so thursday night i went out and about to this club, got alittle drunk (not tara reid drunk, but alittle tipsy) and was feeling quite cocky. I noticed this cute guy kept smiling at me while i was waiting at the bar, so I walked over without saying anything, took his phone, put my number and such in it, and then proceeded to dance the night away yada yadda yadda.


    So late friday night i get this text saying, "Hey marc this is emmanuel from last night,we should go out on a date sometime soon, by the way i'm deaf."

    So what does someone do on a date with someone who's deaf?

    Has anyone else ever been in a situation like this?

    i just don't want it to turn into this---




    oh sing it with me, I'm a gonna go to hell when i die for the facts of life clip haha

    Simply do wutever u do with any other person u considered worthy enuf of ur number... simply get a pad to rite messages, and the important talking will be in the eyes and how much fun u enjoy his company.

    I don't think deaf people are into anything that the rest of the world.. isn't

    He probably is going to be very good at reading lips
    so conversation will be fine

    and if it goes on from there... most likely he'll have all the right parts in all the right places for you

    Nothing should change. He is goodlooking and you thought enough of him to go up to him and exchange numbers. I dont see it as an issue.

    I dated a deaf guy for a while...ended up learning Sign English because I got tired of picking notes out of the bedding ...and trying to write notes in bed.

    So that's the first thing, you all are going to be writing notes to communicate. Dont worry he is used to it.

    In lieu of genuine sign language, you can pantomime stuff to get your message across. They do a lot of that.

    Resist the temptation to think he is ignorant of what's going on in the world just cuz he cant communicate WITH YOU.

    Some can speak to an extent...usually depends on how much they were pushed to learn. My guy didnt speak hardly at all. Reading lips can be hard...."I love you" looks like "I have few" for example

    Realize deaf guys can be noisy, since they cant hear the noise they make. My guy made a lot of breathing noises and loud noises with things.

    Unless he can hear a bit, you are going to have to figure out a way to signal in bed that you like what he is doing. I scratched my guy's back.

    A good book for basic signing is The Joy of Signing.

    LOL, the way you walked up to him... man you got cojones.

    Being deaf wouldn't be an issue for me either.

    I dated a deaf guy many, many years ago. He was sweet, and I ended up getting one of those pads you can write on and then erase by pulling up the top sheet in order to communicate. When we were in bed and being close, it was great. Finally, my not talking for however much time we were together was refreshing.

    That would be a non-issue with me.
