Dating for the hearing impaired
I have been wearing HA's for over twenty years, and mine is progressive. Nobody in my family nor any of my close friends are hearing impaired. My mom and dad are both carriers of the gene that gave me 80 percent hearing loss.I think that so long as we can understand speech aided, it should not be a deterrent. My little sister has no hearing problems just like the rest of my family.While it's not a deal breaker for me it makes me think that our values and religious beliefs might be incompatible. I think it's a little bit of both circumstance and choice of me being a virgin.Either way, I realize not everybody is going to have the same views as me.I don't think hearing impairment is a turn off for dating at all.I think if you let it hinder your confidence and how you interact with the world and the people you date, then yes it is an issue, but that's more on you.The only thing that turns me off is that you're a virgin by circumstance and not choice.While it's not a deal breaker for me it makes me think that our values and religious beliefs might be incompatible.
I decided to start dating again last year when I dropped my weight from 270 pounds to 180 pounds for the first time since middle school and for the sheer fact that I was done partying every weekend (I still party once every six weeks or so). For ladies, is it a turnoff that I'm 29 and hearing impaired?Discussion related to living as a Catholic in the single state of life.As long as a topic is being discussed from the perspective of a single Catholic then it will be on-topic.Confidence is key...personally, I think it's super attractive for any man with an "impairment" (or whatever label you want to put on it) to own it and just be himself and live life to the fullest.Nothing needs to hold you back...sounds like you've obviously been able to adapt.
