Thinking about a little romance via online dating? Dating can be a stressful endeavor … throw hearing loss into the mix and things can start to feel a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, ‘Healthyhearing.com’ has prepared a handy guide with tips on what you can do, with hearing loss, to make the most of your online dating experience. Here are some of those tips:
- Be confident! Don’t be afraid to mention your hearing loss in your profile or to post a picture of yourself that shows your hearing aids.
- Be open! The person you are talking to may not be very familiar with hearing loss and could have questions.
- Be helpful! People that don’t have a lot of experience with hearing loss might not know what they can do to make sure you can hear the conversation. Help them out. Don’t just smile and nod!
