...that when you receive an email from a young lady, no matter what the script may be, she is always 23 years old.

Why do you think this is? Did a lad once score a big payout using this, and it has become some kind of superstition that 23 is a lucky age? I get that it's a good age for a script, old enough should they want it to take on a romantic twist or young enough to inspire parental instincts, but why always 23??!

Hmmmm, I've never noticed, but then again, I don't read the opening script. I'm going to have to start paying attention. Laughing I have no clue why they all want to be 23.

copy and paste, I guess, these things have been going around for years now and all they change is the story, never the personal info. It's the same on date sites, although 28 also seems to be a favorite age. But I have them from 20 to 36, they want to be legal everywhere so above 18/21 is the norm.
Hey if they want to make it easier to spot them, don't worry, it pays off in the end, my baiting character is 65 and his first question is usually; aren't you a little too young for me Wink

That's a sure sign the email is a figment of your imagination! Laughing

If you saw the movie "A Beautiful Mind", the main character figured out he was hallucinating conversations with his old college roomate and his daughter, because the girl never got any older....

(Yeah I know, the reference is a stretch, but it popped into my mind....) Laughing

I'll go with Copy & Paste, why change the insignificant details?

Edit: for changing 'pooped' into 'popped'
