My name is Paul and I am from Albany, NY, 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 28 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.
I am shy and I tend to over think situations, which makes it hard for me to initiate conversations on here. I am.....a little bit high strung. I am generally easy going, but also tend to get easily frustrated, which can be misinterpreted as anger. I am trying to find better ways to relax, or better yet, outlets to focus the energy.
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 in relationship...
Also trying to eat better and go to the gym in the morning to get in better shape.
-Playing my bass
-Wasting time on non-essential items while neglecting things that are actually important.
-Taking bad pictures of myself.
-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 tallest.
-People say I am thin..
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 are. I still watch shows like "The Simpsons", "Futurama", "Daily Show", and "Bob's Burgers".
Food: I like most things, not extremely picky. I like trying (and cooking) new things. Also, pistachios...
I probably should read more books.......
-Indian Buffet. I know that I overeat at these establishments....BUT THE FOOD IS SOOOO GOOD. AND SO BAD FOR MY DIET!
-transportation (need it to carry my bass around easily)
-Coffee/tea (Coffee in the morning, tea at night)
-music (Both listening and playing)
Maybe this can change....for the right person ;)
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.
I won't respond if you don't have a picture...
