I'm deaf but I usually wave front of them to get their attention.

They get excited when I go to them.

I love them ALL!

I hug them (AKA their tanks) AND talk to them

HAHAHA I do the same thing! A habit that comes from owning cats my whole life, I guess. I also always say hi to them when I come home, but otherwise I don't talk to them.

I talk to all of my bettas, I talk to them more than my brother. They are way better conversationalist than he is.

Now if they start talking back, then you might have a problem.

I have actually had dreams where they are talking to me, and I loved it

Ok, I know that all people would love animals to be able to speak, but if that ever happens I WILL freak out.

Well if they do start speaking, clearly it is the beginning of "Planet of the Bettas" In which case I think we are safe, its wal-mart, petsmart, and people that generally suck that will be in real trouble lol.
