Dr. Romance helps a reader sort through his feelings.
Dear Dr. Romance:
I am confused. I am dating a deaf girl and I love her with all my heart. The problem is she likes to party and sleep around and in the community they have noticed it. They keep complaining about deaf gals but sometimes I want to cry because I love that girl so much.
I understand you love her, but does she love you? Are you both deaf? If you're not deaf, can you speak American Sign with her?
Often, women are promiscuous until they find a guy they want to be faithful to. The same is true for guys. Maybe she doesn't share your feelings, maybe she's not ready to settle down. At any rate, it's too soon to get too focused on her.
Why not see if you can be just her friend until she decides she wants to be more serious in her life? "Stupid Cupid" "Relationships 101: Do Opposites Attract?" and "Guidelines for Successful Dating" will help you understand what it takes to create a relationship. The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again will help you want to find someone you can really love.
