Dating, Marriage & Hearing Loss.

Molly Hearts Nate.

When Molly met Nate in college, she saw a young man with a great sense of humor, a kind heart, and a contagious passion for life. His profound hearing loss didn’t even make her pause. Their friendship turned into a college romance and continued to deepen until that inevitable moment when one of them popped the question.

I am hearing impaired. I have worn hearing aids all my life. I know what it is like to feel left out and alone. I would like to find my Molly. Anyone interested in communicating with me? My email is rhavill2@gmail.com. My name is Robin.

I was married for 27 years. I lost my hearing 8 years ago. He couldn’t handle it. Left with his girlfriend 2 years ago. I know how you feel.

I have been married to a hearing man for almost six years. We have been together for eight. Our marriage is a little stressful because of my hearing loss and his impatience with me. It’s very hard to have a good conversation. We just don’t talk a whole lot. He doesn’t understand how hard it is for me to find work and why I don’t use a telephone. Sometimes I wonder if he would have married me if he knew then what he knows now….

If your significant other is hearing and you are not or you are hard of hearing and they have trouble understanding why you can’t do something because of your hearing loss, suggest they wear earplugs for one day and they might finally realize what you are going through.

This is so amazing..I am newly divorced…profoundly deaf..late deaf..not born this way….had a turbulent marriage anyway but he hated my being deaf …. I would not go out to eat much esp with other people..if I did not hear he would speak so loud I would want to crawl under the table…he I would say I am just helping you but seemed like he did it on purpose…I wasted a lot of years..I am now alone and very isolated….sad….I just don’t know at this point how to deal with sometimes

I have been blessed with a friend and wife that has through some rough periods of dealing with my hearing loss in the beginning of our friendship. I had no idea that I even had a hearing loss until the angry response from her or business acquaintances or friends & even family , started leaving me out of their conversations which left me with the feeling that I was dumb, and the hurt was so intense sometimes that I wanted to just crawl into a hole and die. Much has been learned from that experience , in so much so,… Read more »

I’m single and 56. I have a hearing loss since birth. I too wish I could find someone but seems people are biased against dating someone with a hearing loss.

In present, I am separated and divorce will come soon. I was born deaf and I am hearing impaired. Relationships with non-hearing loss has been a long struggle to the person who is not patient with someone like me. As the same feelings for these of you who are at loss of someone who could and would understand you with love. It is a hope for that someone who could love you for who you are inside and out. For those who are in this group, I am your new friend.

Hi Valerie and all those who have a struggle of some sort or another. I can understand and sympithize with everyone of you. I was born Hearing Impairesd and through the years have gone DEAF. I am always struggling with relationships. I had one guy many years ago that loved me for me not my hearing problem. Since then I have never come close to that again nd of I did, that individualo moved out of my life forever to move back to another state for family. I really do want to mke new frienships in my own world. Michelle

I am severely hearing impaired and working my first year of teaching. I won’t lie, it’s vey rough. I come across a lot of people struggling on here. Stay positive and keep being who you are, not what others want you to be. The right person will come your way with patience. The right job will eventually be there. Keep working or looking. And don’t let the impairement own you.

I’m looking for:

Someone who is honest, caring, and understanding. I’m looking for someone to spend time with and share my life with.
I AM A TYPE OF PERSON WHO BELEIVES IN NOT JUDGING FROM THE OUTSIDE TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK WITHIN. I HAVE A BIG HEART WITH LOTS TO GIVE. I LOVE TO HELP OTHERS . I AM THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO HAS BEEN IN SEVERAL ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS IN THE PAST, BUT I HAVE LEARNED THAT I CAN NOT CHANGE WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST AND MUST GO ON
