This is such an interesting topic! Reading the boards here, there are a lot of examples of successful same-sex and opposite-sex pairings. Since you are about to start looking for a new therapist, you'll probably interview both men and women, won't you? The one you eventually choose will probably be the one you feel is the most understanding and empathic- and with whom you have a sense of "good fit". It could be either a man or a woman.

Having said that, I do think people tend to have preferences based on their life experiences. I looked primarily for a man, probably because I have so many brothers, and am used to talking intimately with them. When you let your mind float freely over what qualities you would like to have in a therapist, does it seem that you are talking to a man or a woman?
