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?

The curse of Friends Reunited
I joined Friends Reunited way back when... at a time when it cost £7 for 12 months of access to email addresses. At that same time, I was also married to a man I can only describe as an idiot - an alcoholic, violent, evil waste of space who also happened to be my boss at work.

Wandering through the profiles in Friends Reunited I spotted the profile of my first love... it turned out that we were both now living in the same town, far, far away from our hometown. Temptation set in, I paid the £7 and emailed him...

Within two weeks, the following happened:

We met.
We had sex. Frequently.
I was happy.
I quit my job.
I left my husband.
I found out that my ex had another love in his life: drugs.

I made my excuses and walked away with nothing.

You definitely did not walk away with nothing.
Self respect is a priceless commodity :)

From here on in, the only was is up!

Til next time.

I'm with Dixon on this one
Now you know, otherwise you'd have been unhappy AND wondering, and you can get on with finding the one you can be happy with.

Good luck :)

You walked away
without a violent scumbag husband and it sounds like you did at least have a good time with the other guy albeit for a short time :)

Top marks for not trying to change him..
But wasn't that a little pious.. assuming they were recreational, not hard stuff.. sounds like it would have been worth mentioning that you would prefer if he went clean if he wanted you to stick around. meh, I dunno.. I changed for mine, that's all!
