Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Paul and I am from Albany, NY. I graduated from Fredonia in
2010 with a Bachelor’s of music as a music education major. My
primary instrument is the double bass (hence the name). I went to
Bowling Green State University in Ohio for music history, but that
is currently on hold (Long story).
My main interests are music and cooking. I always enjoyed music, as
it helps calm me down. I like to think I am pretty good at playing
the bass. While it might not be a career, I intend to continue to
play for fun (either with friends or a community orchestra.) It’s
fun! As for cooking, it also relaxes me and I enjoy the end
product. While I do need to follow a recipe, I can produce good
food (I don’t understand how cooking is hard for people). In the
end, I also just love eating. Cooking for myself can at least make
sure I am eating healthy. (But I also tend to eat unhealthy stuff
at times as well……shhhh…….)
I currently just moved back to the area and looking for a job.
Until I find a job—and save up some money—I am living with my
parents. It is not ideal……but at least I have a place to
I am shy and I over think situations, which makes it hard for me to
initiate conversations on here. I don't know what I am looking for
and 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 term "straight acting".) 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just got back into town. Looking for a job, and going to the gym.
All the fun stuff......
I’m really good at
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.
Avoiding running. I hate it, I'd much rather use the elliptical.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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
-If I am smiling with my mouth open, there is space between my
upper teeth. While I concoct an interesting story of how that
happened, the truth is, one of the teeth never grew.
-My socks don't always match the rest of my clothes. That's not a
problem, is it? :P
-People say I am thin.....Not sure if I believe them yet.....I
mean, I know I am much thinner than I used to be....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
-Law and Order
Movies:I don't watch that many movies, and do not really go to the
theaters alone. That is not to say I won't go with someone. Some
that I do like:
-Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Though, I would be open to anything! I don't care for horror films,
but I guess I would watch one if I was with someone.
Music: Classical Music mostly.
Food: I like most things, not extremely picky. I like trying (and
cooking) new things.
I probably should read more books.......
More importantly than 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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Friends,Family (including my cats)
-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)
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.
Also, what text okcupid cuts off on some of the updates on "recent
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Maybe working, at home, I don't know. There is no typical Friday
night when schedules change.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never been with anyone. Reasons does not really matter
(Although feel free to ask).
I am also extremely shy. Working on that.....
I have way too many pairs of underwear...............
I am terrified of mannequins. They are creepy.....
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).
Have a car. I don't want to be the only one driving. (Suburb
living, unfortunately isn't conducive to mass transit). There could
be exceptions to this rule, but it would involve being in
NYC/Boston where I could get down by train/bus.
I won't respond if you don't have a picture.
