Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I will admit, I am a bit of a music nerd. I really
enjoy playing instrumental music and teaching it on a daily
I recently moved into my first apartment and am definitely enjoying
being on my on. **Edit** Still enjoying being on my own, but I am
now in my second apartment and have been away from my parents's
house for almost 2 years now!
My family and friends are really important to me.
I consider myself a bit of a hopeless romantic (I guess watching
too many chick flicks will do that you!)
I love to laugh and like to think that I can make other people
laugh as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have always loved working with kids. On top of that, there was
never any question that music needed to be a major part of my life.
And so, I decided to combine the best of both worlds! I am
currently a music teacher working in two different Catholic Schools
(I know, the nice Jewish girl teaching in Catholic schools --
awesome, isn't it?) Despite the religious differences, I absolutely
love my job. I teach general music to students in pre-K though 8th
grade, and instrumental music to students in grades 4-8. The kids
are all great and I am genuinely happy to go to work every day!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music. As I mentioned before, I am a music nerd. I have been
playing the clarinet for about 19 years now, and have picked up
lots of other instruments along the way. My favorite type of
performing would probably be playing in pit orchestras for
musicals. I am also lucky enough to be able to give kids the gift
of music by teaching it to them!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically speaking, I would say my eyes and my smile -- I kinda
like 'em anyway :)
Not so physically speaking, I would say it is that I would do
anything for someone I care about - whether it is a friend or a
family member or significant other. While it can sometimes get me
in trouble, I will often put others' happiness before my own.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So many to list....
Books: Harry Potter series, Hunger Games series, Divergent trilogy,
Lemony Snickets Series of Unfortunate Events (I know it is meant
for teenagers, but it is so hilarious!), and tons of others. I try
to read as much as I can! My "want to read" list is very long right
Movies: Generally speaking, I like comedies, chick flicks, and some
Shows: How I Met Your Mother, Once Upon a Time, and some reality
Music: I will listen to almost anything once. I am not a huge fan
of Rap, Hip Hop or Heavy Metal, but other than that I like lots of
things! Some of my favorites include Ingrid Michaelson, Matt
Nathanson, and Mumford & Sons (just recently got into them).
Also, I'm a bit of a Musical Theater nerd. Love to listen to shows,
go see them, and play in pit orchestras as much as possible.
Food: Again, not terribly picky. Not a huge fan of seafood, but I
will try almost anything once. I really love Italian food!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
As sad as it is to admit, the internet...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a genuinely nice guy looking for the same in a girl. I am
not looking to just randomly hook up with someone -- I am looking
for someone/something real. Someone who can make me laugh, and
someone who makes me feel like I can be comfortable being myself
around them! If that is you, I would love to hear from you!
Also, when I write messages, I take the time to write more than
"sup" or "nice eyes," so please do the same for me.
Oh, one more thing. I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to
the dating world. I will occasionally send messages first, but I
like/appreciate it when the guy makes the first move -- send me a
