    It's severely affecting my abilities in bars. I simply cannot hear a word anybody says to me. Even in the smoking area sometimes I miss a lot of what people say.

    What can I do?

    It's even caused problems on dates when I went to pubs with music with her, just couldn't hear a word she said, and spent the whole time like "what? What?" Happened numerous times.

    I have moderate hearing loss and was in your situation all my life, I got a hearing aid about a year ago and I'm basically a different person - can you organise a referral to the audiologist? I think that would help you greatly, depending on what type of hearing loss you have.

    I hadn't considered that before but it's a good idea... I can hear fine usually it's just when there's music or other people talking nearby. Really hope I don't have actual medically-diagnosable hearing loss.
