Re: Do you prefer a male or female counselor?
I've never seen a counselor/therapist, but this is an interesting question. I tend to be more apt to open-up with women out of the belief that they might be more understanding, on average, than your typical male.
At the same time, in the realm of counselors/therapists, I don't think that standard would apply for me. I don't think I care so much that it would guide my decision of who I'd see. I think I'd go for someone with the most relevant qualifications, regardless of sex.
He ran because it grounded him in basics. There was both life and death in it; it was unadulterated by media hype, trivial cares, political meddling...It was all joy and woe, hard as a diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free.
