This is an actual email I got today from a man who read a personal ad I had on OLD probably 6+ weeks ago.

"420" is code for marijuana, so he's letting you know he's open to that; "hwp" means "height/ weight proportional", which I suppose is a less-mediocre-sounding way of telling you he's average and not in any great shape. I think it's awesome how his overwhelming NASCAR love can't keep itself out of an initial personal ad response. Also, he did mention at the end that he doesn't want you to become debris, so he's clearly a caring and compassionate person. He's a keeper.

You can't make the NOT regional claim, since he's lived in LA and for a significant period of time.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think this email is either insulting or that terrible.

HWP = Height, Weight, Proportionate

420 = Marijuana

I don't find that response weird either. He sounds comfortable. Maybe it's because he's writing about snow machines and not French cuffs that turns you off.

But the French cuffs are part of your fantasy, and it really does seem like you want a fantasy.
