I think being who you are makes you more real and I’d take real over the societal standard norm of a man.

My husband is similar to you. He’s far more sensitive and compassionate than I am, we have stimulating conversations every day and he’s weird and I love that about him. The story of how my husband woo-ed me will forever be my most favorite story. I’d imagine your wife might feel the same about yours.

That fact that you’re open and honest about these qualities is honorable.

Keep on being you, Jordan. The world could learn a lot from you.
