Today, my sister introduced me to her new, deaf boyfriend. She proudly proclaimed that she was trying to learn sign language for his sake, so he wouldn't have to read her lips. I'm also deaf and have been trying to get her to do the same for me for 20 goddamn years. FML

#33, He didn't ask why she introduced them to each other. He asked how. Of which #5 answered.

plus its not like OP and the boyfriend can't communicate to non-signing people.
Deaf people have to do this as a natural consequence of living in a hearing world.
And they can obviously communicate with each other.

Yes, but when her and new boyfriend break up (chances are good statistically, plus she doesn't seem like a nice person), she'll refuse to sign as it makes her sad and reminds get of her ex.

I'm surprised the parents didn't make her learn, assuming they were both children when it was found he were deaf or he lost his hearing.
