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?

Who needs social networking sites to make a gaff?
Take my mate Dave (name possibly changed) for example. He has joined both facebook and bebo but hasn't figured out they're mainly used to meet people of the opposite sex. Consequently he thinks they are for losers.
Anyway in the last month alone he has made numerous gaffes.

1. He went out a couple of times with his younger sister's friend. No problems really, they're both single and the sister was supportive. There is around 5 years difference betweeen them. One thing led to another after a few drinks and he ended up having it off with her. (no idea why I used "Bottom" language there)
Anyway it's mid sex doggy style and he is enjoying it, enough to say "I've wanted to do this to you since you were 14!"
Funnily enough that didn''t float her boat and she turned around to say "WHAT?!"
Romance wasn't in the air for much longer.

2. He was telling his friend about the girl above and excitedly told him, in earshot of his friends mother that "Yeah the sex was excellent honestly, at one point she had both my balls in her mouth."
I should he is loud at the best of times but he's painfully loud when excited. (so I hear)

3. This was a few years ago but still a gigantic social gaffe in my book. Dave and his friend used to be friendly with two girls. One of whom they thought to be very attractive but had a slightly large nose. Let's call her Tracy. Tracy was speaking to Dave and he was listening thoughtfully. I can only imagine though that he was having a imaginary conversation to his mate Scott as he said "Yeah you're right Scott she definitely DOES have a big nose".
There was no way back after that, sheer stupidity.

Me mate was dancing with this middle-aged woman in a nightclub
I was glancing over at them when they were both happily dancing and snogging each other's face off. They stop dancing and he leans over and says something to her, to which she slaps him and walks off.
I call him over and say "What the fuck did you say to her then?"
"All I said was ey darling, you look good for your age."

Big nose
Could she smoke a cigar in the shower without getting it wet?

Imaginary conversation...
I often have to stop myself from mixing the actual conversation I'm having with the imaginary one in my head.

Haven't yet made such a gaffe as that one, but it's only a matter of time.

Very funny.

I live on my own
and since I lost my job I haven't been spending a lot of time in the real world. Stir crazy would be an appropriate description. I talk to myself. A lot.

Hence my occasional conversations with real people are liberally peppered with the phrase "er... did I say that out loud?"

Wouldn't be a king size cigar
to be honest. She didn't look like Steve Martin in Roxanne or anything like that. Might have given her a complex she didn't have before.

Do you think your mate thought along the lines "These words will almost certainly seal the deal"?

Regarding saying words out loud or having trouble with conversations it gets quite hard even after a couple of days. The key is not to say "lol" out loud and think carefully before speaking. Umm not that I had trouble before or anything.
