"Communicating with my boyfriend"

by Elizabeth Ortiz
(Chicago, Illinois)

Hello. I'm in a four month relationship with a guy I've known for about two years. He is a friend of my sister. We would always send letters to each other by e-mail. When we are together we communicate by him reading my lips and he responds by talking. But, I get frustrated when he doesn't understand what I'm saying. Sometimes we are in a loud place and I would like to do sign language so I won't have a problem talking with him. I need help.
