I have become an aware male, concious of my conditioning, capable of sustained emotional intimacy. Retired jock with sensitivity. I know myself and I seek to know my partner: if being seen for what you are troubles you, I am not the man you want. I believe in treating women as full equals. Mythopoetic tree hugging sensitive new age male with balls.. I chose to become a Jew 23 years ago, I'm not a cantor but played one for a small chavurah for several years (singing Kol Nidre for real is one of the spiritual highlights of my life), but my spiritual life has evolved into a more omnivorous practice.. If it matters, I'm also a friend of Bill W.
