She says she can hear fairly well with her hearing aids and read lips, and I want to make sure I don't do anything by accident that may come off as rude. Hearing people patronise me all the time and some of them don't mean to, but I still get annoyed by it.I know very little ASL, which I've been making an effort to learn so I can better communicate with her.

I feared the idea of a guy grabbing my head and making my hearing aids ring because there’s the fantasy that it’s the sexy thing to do.The early teen years are a confusing time for everyone.We’re all dealing with hormones and feelings that are completely new to us. We pretended to be happy about our “singleness” while other friends were celebrating with their significant others.I can’t help but think about my own dating life, or lack thereof.

One time, after finally letting myself get close to a guy during my senior year of high school, the conversation about the “ringing” and “pulling away” came up via AIM chat. The question had been asked, so I had to answer, and that was that.
We connected right away, and it felt so nice to have made a genuine friend in LA outside of my Georgia (where I’m from) friends.

Conveniently enough, this is also the time when I started to notice more stares in my direction when I wore my hair up or when I would ask someone to repeat themselves more than once.
Meeting people was challenging, let alone meeting someone in a romantic capacity.
