    Steel City Girl Here

    Hey, i'm from Pittsburgh. I'm looking to make some new friends that are in my area who have similiar interests. It seems like it's so hard to find people who like horror movies in Pittsburgh. It is a small city, but i kinda like it cuz it's smaller than most cities. I definitely...

    Still Home To Me

    Sure, I live in Maryland now (via 17 years in exile in Texas), but I still think of Pennsylvania as home. Maryland is a close copy, though, especially where I live - between D.C. and Baltimore. It is just rural enough to remind me where I grew up. I am around 30 to 40 minutes...

    This is home. I wish this wasn't a visit.

    I would give up everything I've created and been through or worked at in Georgia to come back home. This is home. I can't stop imagining how things would be if I came back. I'd be hard but I'd be happy.

    Montgomery County

    I'm not a native; I was transferred (by the company I work for) to PA about 5 years ago and have lived in Montgomery County ever since.  I like it' my wife has got used to it and it's a great place to raise kids -- much better than a big city.  Greetings neighbors!

    Exton: the Crossroads

    Though I haven't lived there for over 26 years and haven't been back in over ten, part of me still considers Exton, PA my home. It was pretty rural back then, just a bit of urban chaos coming on at the junction of routes 30 and 100 in the past decade that I lived there. I love...
