I need help asking a girl to be my girlfriend


Recommended Posts

I have recently started dating a girl who speaks and teaches BSL. I myself have a partial hearing loss and have started to learn BSL. I really like the girl and would like to ask her to be my girlfriend but I would like to do it in BSL. Can anyone help me construct this question and possibly show me how to sign it? I am very new to signing so I don’t have the knowledge to formulate this myself.

I am starting to learn BSL so cannot help with the translation of signing it at this time but recommend an animated series from Japan starting on 6 January 2004 in the new year soon.  It is about a deaf girl who is a college student who befriends an university student.  He speaks three languages but sign language is not one of them so he starts to learn it after they met.  The title is called A Sign of Affection, and it is going to be aired online in many anime platforms. 

You can check the series from the Anime News Network website link A Sign of Affection (TV) - Anime News Network:W where I first heard about it for more information.  It is usually available in other languages including english subtitles, a few days to a week later than the original japanese version on anime sites (recommend the following - animepahe, animesuge, animedao).  There are more other sites that have the english subbed versions available online so do some research.  

Since you do not have full knowledge of BSL, there are other ways to communicate and that is to show her the information of the new anime coming out next year.  As the story is quite relevant to your and her circumstances, it is a good start especially both might like watching animation with real life issues.  

I am glad to have come across this forum as having heard news about the successful campaign bringing the language into schools in 2025, it seems that the global community is also spreading awareness of its importance as Japan have created an anime series based on the hearing impaired, which are also created by sign language animators so this is really is one of the mostly anticipated animated series for winter 2024.

Please try watching it and see how it progresses.  Usually the anime will air every week on the same day, so it will be available on Saturdays from 6 January to 23 March 2024 which is around 12 weeks, about 25 minutes each chapter, probably 12 chapters in total.  The link is here Official website of the TV anime "Yubisaki and Love" (yubisaki-pr.com)

Best wishes for the new year and good luck!

    • Hi I'm Jo, I went to level 2 but chickened out of the exams, watch sign of the day daily and play the fingerspelling game. I enjoy BSL and have used it at work sometimes  
    • Hello, I hope all is well. My name is Adam. I am myself relatively new to BSL. I am more less know the alphabet and few other signs in relation to level 1. I am looking for someone i can practice with. Can spare a few mins on Saturday please. We can use the chat room and practice for a few mins. I am only slightly free on a Saturday and sometimes on a Sunday even then I can still be busy. Thank you  
    • I just completed the BSL introductory course online and thought I would introduce myself, as suggested.  I would like to do more online BSL courses and find a way to practise online with others.    
    • Hi Sarge. I see a lot of posts here have no replies so I'd like to buck that trend. I hope you enjoy coming to the UK. I'm autistic like most of my family. My little brother is autistic too and has learning difficulties and we used to sign with him. That's probably where we began. We started with Makaton and then desired to learn a proper language, then learnt SSE, and now I'm learning BSL proper. BSL is such a wonderfully expressive language that says more quicker than many English words could.
    • I've lots of reasons for learning and am interested to meet people who have similar interests to share vocabulary Im a GP and I want to make my practice more inclusive. I'll still need interpreters, of course, but I'd like to be able to make it more accessible for people to communicate their needs without booking on or relying on an app Im a Scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs. We already sign together and hope to provide more opportunity for young peo
    • Oh, and I'm autistic and play dungeons and dragons, which means I have loads more vocabulary to develop in the field of neurodiversity and fantasy games!
    • Hi all, New to the forum (obviously). I'm a GP in Wales. I learnt for several years a few decades ago before education moved properly away from SSE towards BSL so I am having one to one lessons as my vocabulary is better than my language structure, and then hope to slot back into a group. My motivations are manifold: I am a GP and want to make my practice more inclusive to Deaf people. I am a scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs (again, he is older like me so
    • I wrote in my previous post introducing myself my reasons for wanting to learn so I'll just repeat what I wrote there: I am learning to help my younger brother express himself better and speak to d/Deaf people in a way they may find more comfortable.
