My self-summary
Hello,

My name is Paul and I am originally from Albany. New York. I am currently in Bowling Green, Ohio for grad school. I am attempting to achieve a Masters in Music for Music History, and I should be done within the year. I have already achieved a BM in Music Education at SUNY Fredonia.

I am quiet, at least at first, and reserved. I am able to open up more once I know a person better, but I am still far too timid. I am not sure what I am looking for and I don't really care about the question of being "feminine" or "masculine". (For what it's worth, I'm not sure how to classify myself. I also hate the term "straight acting". It just bothers me.) The personality of the person--and how he fits with mine--is more important than that classification. I tend to over think and over analyze things....I don't have a type, or at least don't know my type....hard to know that as I have never been in relationship.

Thanks for reading my profile!
What I’m doing with my life
Just finishing up my master's degree. I just have to write a thesis and then I am done. Not sure what I want to in the future, but I'll be happy when I am done with school!

I also rejoined the gym. I would LOVE to lose another 20 pounds. Although if that does not happen, it would not be the end of the world. I am becoming more content with my current weight.
I’m really good at
I am not sure if I would say I am really good, but playing my bass. I have been playing since the Fifth grade, and went to undergrad for Music Education that gave me hour long lessons for 4 years. I'd like to think that I have become a good player since then.

I am decent at cooking as well. I do not have the courage to cook without a recipe, but I can produce decent tasting food when following a recipe!
The first things people usually notice about me
From some friends:
-My lips (Friend describes it as "Kissable"). It is funny.....I used to hate them.
-My eyes. Blue-grayish. Nice looking eyes, if I do say so myself
-Height. I am 6'3"-6'4". I would not classify myself as extremely tall, but I am definitely not short.
-Glasses. I have been considering contacts, but I am not sure as I am not comfortable with my finger close to my eye
-My smile. I tend to smile a lot I think.
-Brown hair. Used to always have short hair, but I now like my hair (relatively) longer. Need a haircut soon, though.
-The space in between my upper teeth. I am missing a tooth, never grew in.

I'm not sure what else...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows:
-Chopped
-Restaurant Impossible
-Hell's Kitchen
-Kitchen Nightmares
-Masterchef
-The Simpsons
-South Park
-Law and Order and SVU
-Futurama
-House
-Fringe

Movies:I don't watch that many movies, and do not really go to the theaters. That is not to say I won't go with someone. Some that I do like:
-Argo
-Monty Python and the Holy Grail
-Lincoln
-Star Wars
-Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
-Avengers.

Though, I would be open to anything!

(I do have a soft spot foe Muppet's Christmas Carol)

Music: Classical Music mostly. The area I like is 20th century Soviet music, such as Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Schnittke, Gubaidulina, Weinberg.

I don't hate popular music, it just doesn't interest me as much. Wouldn't mind someone broadening my horizons!

Food: Almost anything that I have tried. Not at all picky, although I am currently counting calories in order to lose weight. I love seafood. Salmon is currently my favorite. I also like pork, chicken, and steak (although I prefer pork and chicken to steak).

More importantly to what I enjoy, I would hope that I would be able to share some interests with my partner. Especially interests that I don't already have!
The six things I could never do without
1) Family and friends. I am lucky enough to have people in my life that care about me and support me. I do group them together, as they are both groups I want to be around and cannot see myself losing.

2) Music and my instrument. It has been a part of my life since the 4th grade, and music is always stuck in my head.

3)Maybe not forever, but while I do have it: health and mobility. Lucky enough up to now to have both.

4) My mind. Not necessarily intelligence (but would be nice if I kept that), but sanity. Know that even in rough patches, my mind is still my own.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just life in general. What I want to do in the future, and how I want to improve myself. I want to be less socially awkward, especially around people I find attractive. I want to learn how to be more outgoing and withdraw into my own mind less.

The future is an interesting thought. I wonder where I will end up, with what kind of job, person.....

Why okcupid changes its damn format all the time......ok, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it, it's just strange.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging around my apartment or with friends. Not really into the bar scene, but I'll go if people are going.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never been in a relationship mostly due to my insecurities over my weight. I'm a little afraid at the prospect, and am afraid of making the first move. But I will have to get over that if I want to be in a relationship.

Also I have never had a real job.........been focusing on school....
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 19–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to, you think I am decent looking, and not repulsed by the fact I have never been in a relationship. I am going to try to be better at responding. Please have a picture, and be relatively close (within a few hours)

A conversation always starts with "hello".
