The Pittsburgh Test
by Jessica Vickers
This wasn't the worst, but I definitely survived a yinzer nightmare. I had been seeing this guy for a little while, and we had met on the OkCupid dating app. I invited him over for takeout and to watch movies, and I decided that I would introduce him to a yinzer delicacy ... Pierogi Pizza! He was from out of town, so I was so excited to introduce him to all things Pittsburgh. He took one look at this pizza, and I could see the instant revulsion. I couldn't convert him to the Church of Yinzer, and I think I ended up eating the whole pizza by myself. Things didn't end up working out between us, and I don't want to say it was because he wasn't interested in pierogis … but it probably didn't help.
