Crush on a hearing co-worker??


New Member
I just like to have your thoughts on this... I'm deaf, and there is this handsome hearing guy at work I am attracted to. We haven't talked much to each other but he knows ASL previously before I started working with him, although I'm shy to ask how much he knows.

There are body language hints and I have a hunch that he likes me back, but I can't be 100% sure. For example, one day he came to my workroom and we were both alone - it was late in the day. He showed me something on the computer, and then I talked back to him as I normally did to my other hearing co-workers. Right after he said something to me, he ran away from my workroom like a wild pokemon when it's cornered. :laugh2: :confused:

When I looked at his face and the way he ran from the room, I can tell he's really nervous. I wasn't sure if his behavior is like that because 1) he's just awkward that I'm deaf, 2) he has to attend to something right away, or 3) he actually likes me. In my first days working with him, he doesn't seem to look nervous when he tried to communicate with me. That which has led me to this hunch, among other hints. There is this wanting feeling in my guts I want to tell him how much I feel but at the same time, I'm scared of what would happen between us. And to make things worse, we don't talk much with each other and when we do, it's just work talk.

STILL, there is this attraction I cannot ignore! Do you deafies have any experience having a crush on a hearing coworker and how did it go for you?

From a man's point of view, boys are shy and unsure, but a confident lady can inspire and motivate, encourage, ect. One of the best lines a lady used on me was " well your an honorable man aren't you
