To be honest with you, if I find out that you are not deaf but know ASL, I wouldn't avoid you as long as I felt comfortable with you. Some deaf people are strange, no difference from hearing people.I have another question. Some deaf guys seem OK to talk to me until they ask if I am deaf. Once they find out that I'm not deaf, their whole presentation changes, and they eventually move on to someone else. I would like to understand this. It's almost as if I became a different person.
When I was young, a few hearing girls wanted to talk with me and I didn't avoid them since I was cool with those girls. I dated some of them, however I had no goal to have a relationship with one of them. They knew and wanted to make it one of their memories. So we moved on.
