    Hold you finger down in the text box and the option will pop up.

    You may want to find some kind of "Beginner's guide to Android". Something to help you learn the basics.

    I'm still waiting for my nexus but I assume you're using chrome. If it's like my jellybean tablet then paste will only popup as an option if you hold your finger where the text starts, as opposed to the entire text window.
