Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Hmmm the struggle to come up with a profile opener is real.
46 in actual years, 35 in OKCupid years. Divorced years ago, no
kids, alimony, etc. California native. Ivy Leaguer. Foodie.
Confessed nerd. Confessed dog owner. Well-traveled. Competitive Cat
3 bike racer. 800 FICO score.
I'm compassionate, determined, adaptable and self-aware, all
wrapped up with a bow of good humor and sarcasm.
I try to make my own luck, but I also revel in the serendipitous.
I've found the best things in life often cannot be planned, even in
a world where OKCupid exists. ;)
In a match, similar values and goals, respect, teamwork and that
intangible chemistry are essential. But...the last thing I want to
do is date my clone (sly OKCupid question reference there!). Let's
savor and celebrate our differences!
I'm incredibly thankful to have friends of all ages that provide me
with interesting and diverse experiences and perspectives on the
world. I'm comfortable be it riding with collegiate cyclists,
exchanging teaching ideas with professors, dressing down for a rave
or rocking a suit at a museum opening. I am looking for someone who
is similarly flexible, or at least doesn't judge someone who is! :)

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening actively. Exercising patience. Math. Grammar. Karaoke.
Practicing the golden rule. Inspiring eager young minds.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iMac, iPhone, iPad, iTouch, iPod, iSeeAPattern. Seriously, what can
we really never do without, aside from the obvious?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
