Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I'd really like to know more about your experiences, whether you yourself are deaf/hard of hearing, or you have dated people/have friends who have this disability.

    Personally, I have always found it awkward meeting new people, and I seem to have a knack for making friends with people who talk extremely quietly, not great for someone who is pretty deaf!

    Dating has also been awkward since I don't know when to tell people that I am hard of hearing and I'm not sure what I should say/act in that situation.

    Any advice/stories appreicated
