The differences have come out of different personality types and levels of self-awareness.
Men who think they're swell in bed, but don't communicate with me are usually real disappointments.
Woman B: I honestly don't have a preference between uppercase and lowercase d/Deaf.
Woman A: If I wear my cochlear implants, they usually fall off or the magnets get stuck on something."You should be so lucky I gave you the time," or, "You're deaf, so you shouldn't have unrealistic expectations." I also can't really do hookups at parties because I have to recharge the batteries in my cochlear implants and I never want to wake up completely deaf the next day in an unfamiliar setting. I can hear very well through my cochlear implants, but prior to my implants, most of my communication was through text or Facebook messages.Woman B: My current partner and I tend to speak or sign beforehand about what we like/don't like.Woman C: I was so nervous I wouldn't be able to hear the guys I went out with and they'd think I was ditzy, but most of the guys I went on dates with didn't seem to mind repeating themselves. The only difference I could think of would be a deaf person would have less awareness about noise level, but it does depend on your partner. Woman A: The benefits were that they could help me to order food in restaurants and communicate with people.When I began having sex as a teenager, I was really nervous that they'd accidentally see my cochlear implants and be weirded out. They might say I took advantage of her because of her disability." I've never had a guy say those things to me, but that was my biggest worry. If they know they're noisy, they'll just restrain it as much as possible. The drawbacks were that they didn't understand what it is like to not be able to hear.
Woman C: I was born with hearing, but I gradually lost it over time.
