Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Paul. I am from Albany, NY (well, a subarb) but have
also lived in Fredonia, NY and Bowling Green, OH for school. I
graduated from Fredonia in 2010 with a BA in Music Education, and
attempted to attain a Masters Degree in Music History at Bowling
Green State University. While the door isn't closed, I don't know
if I will finish it.
I am not good at describing myself and/or my interests. I guess I
am still trying to figure it out…..at 27 years of age….better late
than never, right? Well, as my educational background suggests, my
main interest is music. Mainly “classical” (not really the correct
term, but it's the common term) music. I enjoy both the act of
listening and playing it (I am a bassist). Apart from music, I also
enjoy cooking and eating new things. Unfortunately, due to my
schedule at work, it's hard for me to cook for myself. I've been
stuck on the closing shift recently, so by the time I get out….I am
dead tired. Oh well, this job is temporary, so when I get something
with better hours, I can pick it up again.
I am shy and I tend to over think situations, which makes it hard
for me to initiate conversations on here. To be honest, I don't
know what I am looking for in a potential significant other. (I
know that I don't want something 20+ my age...) I see a lot of
people saying that don't want a specific type of personality, such
as “Masculine” or “Feminine”. Me? I do not really care about the
question of being "feminine" or "masculine". I'd rather not limit
myself to one type of person. (For what it's worth, I'm not sure
how to classify myself. I believe I am more on the masculine side,
but I don't really care. I also hate the terms "straight acting",
and "discreet".) 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

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working as a cart attendant, just to make some money,
though I am working on trying to get out of there ASAP......Plan is
to get out of there by the end of December.
Also currently applying for other jobs.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am not sure if I would say I am really good, but playing my
I am pretty good at cooking, at least when I follow a recipe.
Results come out good, you won't see me on Worst Cooks in America
any time soon.
Kicking the bottom of a shopping cart. I have the battle scars to
prove it. I still have the bump on my shin from the last time I

From some friends:
-My lips (friend describes it as "kissable"). It is funny.....I
used to hate them. I guess they are all right now :)
-My eyes, which are blue-grayish. It is one of features about me
that I like.
-Height, I am about 6 foot 3. Somewhat tall, but definitely not the

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am not a huge movie buff, although I will watch what is on the
television or what other people are watching. There are still a lot
of classic movies that I have yet to watch. The only genre I don't
care for is horror, though I will watch it if I am with
For music, I tend to only listen to classical music. It's what I
have studied, and what I really enjoy. I am not closed off to other
types of music, I just gravitate to classical.
I have stopped paying attention to what the new "hit" series on TV
is. I still watch shows like "The Simpsons", "Futurama", "Daily
Show", and "Bob's Burgers". (Also, HGTV and the Food
Food: I like most things, not extremely picky. I like trying (and
cooking) new things.
I probably should read more books.......
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Friends,Family (including my cats ((even if they are scared of
-Indian Buffet. I know that I overeat at these
establishments....BUT THE FOOD IS SOOOO GOOD. AND SO BAD FOR MY
-transportation (need it to carry my bass around easily)
-Coffee/tea (Coffee in the morning, tea at night)
-music (Both listening and playing)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Some people look back at the past with regret for what they did or
their actions. I look back and see what I did not do, which kind of
controls me to continue the same pattern. I am trying to correct
this....but the past is there, and I can learn from it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely, at home sleeping. I've been stuck with the closing
shift (until 9/9:30). While this may not seem that late, I would
have been walking around the damned parking lot for 8 hours. (Have
I mentioned I need a new job?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never been with anyone. Reasons do not really matter...
(Although feel free to ask).
I am also extremely shy. I still have yet initiated a conversation
on here.....Coward, thy name is Paul.
I still live with my parents. Mainly due to financial reasons. With
this job, a months pay would barely cover rent in this area. There
would not be enough left over to cover utilities, food, and other
bills. While I do love my parents and am grateful I can live here
at the moment, it's still not ideal.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to. Be around my age, and location (within 1.5-2hrs
ideally. But will travel more if you have a car or is easy to get
to via mass transit).
I won't respond if you don't have a picture.
