Would you ever be willing to learn Sign Language for someone you wanted to date?

If you met someone who was deaf or Hard-Of-Hearing, and only knew sign language, would you be willing to learn sign language to be able to get to know them better?

  • Yes. I'll admit that I'd have a difficult time dating someone who is completely deaf. But I was good friends with someone who is hard of hearing (requires a hearing aid) and I wanted to learn sign language from them.

  • I tried to. A girl I knew had a deaf daughter. I tried to take a class. Apparently I'm not too quarantined with my hands & fingers. The teacher kept hitting them telling me that's sloppy, like eating with your mouth full.

    I was trying. Sadly I just gave up.

    Her Mom helped me some general things as simple as Hi ( yes just putting your hand up & waving) how are you, what's new. Things like that. Her daughter was so fast her Mom would tell me what she was saying.

    A real chatty Cathy with her hands.

  • I the woman I was really interested in, and she was interested in me, hell yeah.

    I'm trying to learn Chinese so my wife and I can talk to each other, better. Learning sign language would be no different.

  • If that's a love-from-the-first-sight then sure, for her I could do it, but if it's just a date then no.

  • Nope cause I had a bad experience with it once, and I wouldn't care enough about that person.

  • I'm actually planning to learn some basic sign language because of the career path I'm going into. But at my age, I don't think I'd get very far or remember is unless I stuck to it. I learned that the hard way with Spanish, which I'm also taking over again.

  • Absolutely(:

    I've always thought it was interesting anyway to be able to speak with hands =D
