Instead, I got a ? in the PDF output and the tilde in the source was changed to ? after running LaTeX. Then I changed the input in TeXShop to UTF8 and the ? changed to ËIJ, so I added \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}. Then I got the tilde, ˜, instead of a non-breaking space :/

That is probably a raised ~ which is NOT the version that's part of the ASCII subset which is used for the non-breaking space ~ (Shift-` on the US keyboard).

I enclose a fixed version of your MWE:
