I'm friendly and outgoing, but a little shy at first, especially in crowds of strangers. I'm very honest (sometimes a bit too much). I expect a lot from my friends, but I give a lot in return.
I'm not really into sports, although as someone from the Pittsburgh area I'm legally required to root for the Steelers (or "Stillers" as they call them in the 'Burg).
I'll walk or hike anywhere, but I hate to run. Or walk fast. I prefer to amble.
I love to laugh, so super-brownie points to you if you can crack me up.
The first kiss is the hardest part of a date for me, so if you like me please give me some kind of sign! Otherwise, much awkwardness may ensue.
I am not looking for a Platonic relationship. I am interested in a serious relationship that could lead to marriage and children.

You should not message me if you are selfish, arrogant, crazy, emotionally unavailable, vegan, a flake, think Ayn Rand had some really good ideas, are a SJW, are really religious or a dogmatic atheist (or into some weird New Agey alternative religion), a club kid, have a ton of tats, or more baggage than a small carry-on. Phew!
