Watch: A Video Love Letter in Sign Language


Here's some YouTube sweetness from a young man to his deaf boyfriend, complete with captioning, though it's likely most of you would probably watch the clip even without the translation. There's so much hate in the news these days, it's nice to include a little bit of love.

  3. That was really a nice way to wake up this morning. It's nice to know that there is so much love in the world.

  4. Makes my day and it isn't even 8:00 AM yet..

  5. It would be much more touching if the guy could actually sign. He told him he wanted coffee (not make love) and he wanted shoes (not mutual masturbation).

    Cute idea though.

  6. Now there's a young man who's good with his hands!

  7. I think making the effort to learn someone else's language just to be closer to them is one of the sweetest gestures of all.

    Clearly, this guy is very new to ASL, but I absolutely love the thought behind his video. Bet his boyfriend is all kinds of embarrassed... which makes it that much better. ;)

  8. The idea that he would try and do this while making some errors in his signing is even more endearing to me. I like that he's trying and he seems smitten with this guy.

  9. @Sparks - lol, I was a little embarrassed at first, but it's all good :)

  10. Signing is a beautiful way to communicate.

  11. Adorable, but at the end he asks for shoes. Which makes it even more adorable, come to think of it.

  12. Maybe there were mistakes in signing, but this boy is absolutely adorable (and so hot!) . . . and the boy he loves must be equally so. Love has its own language. Bless them!

  13. Wow, they've repurposed Levi Johnston into the perfect boyfriend. Who KNEW?

  14. Awww. What a nice antidote to all the bullshit out there. So sweet. Thanks for posting.

  15. i'm not complaining seems all you have to do these days to get attention is take your shirt off. and be young and hot of course.

  16. Thanks ANDY, it almost makes you forget about the GOP for a few moments. Not knowing how to sign myself, it's sweet he tried, as for any mistakes, that makes it somehow sweeter still.

  17. For all the reasons everyone has mentioned, guys like this are "A List" IMHO.

  19. ".it seems all you have to do these days to get attention is take your shirt off. and be young and hot of course."

    Exactly, JGM. Cute kid, obviously. But if he were unattractive (too fat, too skinny, bad skin, etc.) few would care outside the deaf community.

    Which puts the lie to all this fawning over how "sweet" it is, and how uplifting it is.

    Let's call it for what it is: kid's hot. We like hot young guys doing just about anything short of taking a dump on camera.

    I like it, too. But it's not especially validating, and at least I know why.

  20. Hot dude. And I love facial hair, that's always a clincher for me.

    Would anybody pay attention if he wasn't nice looking? It reminds me of what someone once said about Jesus: Would anybody ever have paid any attention to him and this Christianity thing if Jesus was 350 pounds and incontinent?

    Posted by: ratbastard | Oct 26, 2010 11:04:37 AM

  21. Jesus may have been 350lbs and incontinent. After all, after making him a long-haired red-headed Caucasian, who know what else they scrubbed to make him palatable to the WASP-y masses?

    Posted by: JIB | Oct 26, 2010 11:08:37 AM

  22. Being that their are no actual pictures of jesus( and I suppose any real proof of his existence), maybe he was 350 pounds and incontinent, and that's why everyone is so confused about what he said...because no one was really paying attention...just a thought.

  23. The fact that the kid is hot does not make his message any more or less endearing.

    Besides his message was to his boyfriend not to us, so as long as his boyfriend finds him attractive (and after the effort he put into that signing he'd have to be pretty cold hearted not to)what does it matter?

    Posted by: Ryan | Oct 26, 2010 11:16:21 AM

  24. That was the sweetest, sexiest thing I think I've ever seen. SOMEONE is a very lucky guy.

    Whoever this kid is, his sentiments and efforts to learn sign language and speak to his boyfriend in a voice he can hear is beyond endearing.

    And I just love reading bitchy comments here. If you can't say something nice, join the GOP

  25. What if the guy was fat - would you have really posted this stupid video?
