My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Divorced for five years after a thirty year marriage, retired college professor (electrical engineering), two adult children out on their own. I live in a small house in the Brookline section of Pittsburgh, convenient to most of our city's great activities. I retired from my full time teaching gig at a relatively young age, inspired by Thoreau's words "I trust that I shall never thus sell my birthright for a mess of pottage". I'm left handed, allergic to cats and cigarette smoke, and a social drinker (love that good craft beer).

Religion wise, I would describe myself as a "hopeful agnostic". I feel there is more than we can ever know (or even comprehend), and I tend to shy away from people who claim they have the definitive answer, since I believe that no one conclusively does. I strive to find and observe the beauty in nature and in our lives in general.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping my Father, children, siblings, or neighbors whenever help is needed. Environmentally speaking, trying to be the change I want to see. Bicycling-wise, trying to climb all 13 of the Dirty Dozen Bicycle Race hills, one at a time. Update May 2015: I have successfully climbed all 13 dirty dozen hills. Either you beat the hill or the hill beats you. Yep. Also, recently bicycled from Pittsburgh to Erie (145 miles) in one day (don't go too fast but I go pretty far). Find your impossible and conquer it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting broken things working again and making lemonade out of lemons. Pedaling uphill.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm riding a bicycle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most of the time I eat vegetarian (but I certainly don't necessarily expect that of a date). I eat eggs, no dairy, and chicken once a week or so. I avoid foods with extra sugar. I usually have one or two beers after dinner every evening for "dessert". The Zenith Tea Room on the South Side is one of my favorite places to eat. Another place for great food (both vegan and omnivore) is Spak Brothers on Penn Ave. I love Chinese food (without msg).

For music, it's mostly WYEP but occasionally I get in a WDVE mood.

Just read: "The Drunkard's Walk - How Randomness Rules Our Lives". I highly recommend it.

For movies I mainly watch them at home on the DVD player. Recent good ones I've enjoyed: Fly Fishing in the Yemen, The Five Year Engagement, St. Vincent, The Way, 50/50, No Direction Home (a documentary about Bob Dylan), Premium Rush, Silver Linings Playbook, Promised Land, Gas Land Part II, The Internship, Girl Most Likely, Cloud Atlas, Jack Reacher.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are very few things we could NEVER do without. Here are six things I would not WANT to do without:

A good relationship with my children, Father, and siblings
My bicycles
Craft beer
Meaningful projects to work on
Burning firewood to help heat my home
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How unfair and random life is, and how we need to reach out and grab some happiness along the way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying happy hour; maybe at an outside music performance (during the nice weather).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hang my laundry out to dry. Literally.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't have cats, you don't smoke, you are truly single, and you think we might be compatible.
