This is a question Social Networking Gaffes

Freddy Woo writes, "My school bully just friended me on Facebook!" No doubt he pokes him, and then demands his lunch money.

Personally, last month a scantily clad young woman confused me with her fiance, with whom I share a first and last name. I'm still not sure she's noticed, but she's going to be mortified when she does.

What's the biggest mistake you've made using a social networking site?

I actually did something similar for a time. A good friend of mine pointed out that I had been doing what she referred to as "serial monogamy", so each break-up was like a mini-divorce. She advised dating multiple people simultaneously, as long as you were up front about what you were doing. That way if a relationship ended, it wasn't as painful a rejection because you still had others you were seeing.

As I had just come out of a messy divorce and a bad heartbreak soon after, I took her advice to heart and did exactly that. She was right- it was a very healing experience for me, and put relationships into perspective in a way I had never known before. It made it much more balanced.

Heather, I really owe you a big one for that bit of insight.
