There are good guys out there! It was a mild loss at first but then at 12 it became moderate and she was given hearing aids to wear. At 16 years old, things changed again as her hearing went completely in one ear and never came back.
I hated being deaf but now I see it as a blessing. It was overwhelming but so good. They opened my eyes to ing and now I know some language in American, Russian; all sorts of languages!
Danielle’s deaf dating experiences
When I first ed, I had beige hearing aids but the whole swimming team had amazing coloured ears. I went home and asked my audiologist for some in bright blue and sparkles! Why not flaunt it?
It spurred me on to break a world record in swimming, well two actually! Since leaving university, Danielle has become a personal trainer. She loves her job but socialising with work friends can be difficult.
If we go for family dinners, I always choose my seat first. Because of this, Danielle initially worried about dating.
Unfortunately he turned out not to be the one. When we went on our first date he asked my friend the best quiet restaurant to take me to, asked me all about my deafness and even visited me before the date so we could chat in a quiet environment. Sometimes they ask a million questions and then disappear.
Am I going to hear what the waiter says? And unfortunately for Danielle, she had one really bad experience.
