    I'm still confused about the 'limp' part.
    I think I remember Marty having a limp after being hit by the car in the first film.
    It's all a bit confused really, unless there's a scene where Marty smashes Bíff's car? I can't remember..

    OH!!! I think you've got!

    So it's a good text! He's just upset the OP has a boyfriend! Well translated!
    Yep, he's upset about the OP having a boyfriend and is making a slightly awkward and confusing reference to Back to the Future. Rather than being a guy trying to sound like he's tough, he's more of a geek who imagines that people know Back to the Future as well as he does. For someone who has just seen BTTF (I haven't), I'm sure the text makes quite a lot of sense. To anyone else, it's more or less gibberish as it mixes up the plot of the film anyway.
    That's the problem with cultural references and just communication in general, if you both know what you're referring to and get all the subtext, it can be really pleasant but it can so easily go wrong.

    I've seen BTTF but jebus talk about random.

    Aww the guy seems quite sweet now after your explanation. At first it seemed v inarticulate (and possibly sexual :redface: ). SamTheMan you saved the day.

    I might have saved the OP's admirer? You're not the OP though are you?
    It does sound quite geeky and hopelessly romantic indeed as he knows she's got a boyfriend, yet he's still trying to charm her.

    I meant saved him from a fate worse than death - being dissed on TSR. And saved TSR from a massive thread fail. So basically, saved the day :p:

    He does seem like a typical hopeless TSRian. He'd better start a thread now.

    Why would you like a person unable to construct a simple, coherent message.

    Ask him what it means - it was with him you were talking, after all!
    Maybe he likes to be mysterious? lol, and if it was referring to sex, then it would be pretty ackward if she asked him to explain what it meant. You never know, they might end up having a :fight: or going or the :jerry:-emy (?) Kyle show.

    If it is a rubbish, but very specific, yet random BttF reference, then the guy in question sounds like some sort of weird chav-geek combination. Yeah, good luck with that... :yy:

    Yeah, but tbf it doesn't read like it refers to sex... You'd find more innuendo. Men tend to be explicit about sex, even in text form - deffo don't want any misunderstanding!! :p:

    He said if you know what i mean x, so he probably did mean sex.

    I dunno what the rest is about,

    He may be dyslexic.
