T #5 is not the guy, summary so far

First of all, his office is in this weird, rickety building that smelled really funny. And the smell was even worse in his particular office. It wasn't a toxic smell. More like an odd incense plus minty smell. But I completely loathed it.

Then his office was furnished with a chair and couch in matching mud brown faux suede that gave me the willies every time I touched it. I'm not necessarily opposed to brown faux suede in general, but there was something odd about this stuff that I just hated the feel of. So, I spent the session trying not to touch the couch I was sitting on.

Next thing I noticed was that he really needed a feng shui consultation. I won't go into details, but as I talked to him, I came up with three different alternative arrangements for the furniture that would have made me feel more comfortable. The way it was arranged forced him to sit twice as close to me as he needed to, and it felt totally awkward.

So, with three of my senses highly offended, I attempted to see if there were redeeming qualities in the way we related. He seemed like a nice guy, with a lot of passion for his work, and some interesting perspectives. Unfortunately, I found myself editing my intro story much more than I had with the other Ts I've seen, which I think is not a good sign. At one point, he was telling me something, and I caught myself thinking, "Oh, that's good. I should remember that to bring up with the T I actually work with." Soooooo . . . I think it's just not right enough.

This afternoon I see T #6 for just a 20 minute meet and greet (that's what he offers for free). If he's not spectacular, then I'm going to call T4 and see if I can get on his schedule. Plus I'm going to see if I can talk him down on his fee, which is the highest of all of them (hmmm . . . you get what you pay for?). At least until I'm out of school.

I'm still tossing around the idea of going to see T2 one more time before I give him up. I know his convenient office and low fee are not good reasons to choose a T, but money and time *are* very tight, and I did like him. And, the feelings I had walking away from all of these Ts went like this:

T1: No, too provoking
T2: Maybe, feels nice
T3: No. Is he creepy or just goofy?
T4: Yes! I want to talk to him more.
T5: Sadly, no. Too much to overcome.
