      Yes, lots of 'jokes' about whether or not he puts out/lights her fire...she's middle aged like me and I am cringing.

      Eeeeek, well I hope he doesn't see it and take exception. Like you, I don't see this ending well (though of course I wish her the best if she's happy). If I were him, I would be livid that my photo was being used like that, apart from anything else. When I used to go to gatherings and there were cameras out (which is pretty rare now, happily, going back to what I was saying about the SM novelty wearing off for many people I know), I dreaded how the pics were going to be used. Not that I get up to anything dodgy (honest!) - I'm just camera-shy! But most of all, I object to people thinking it's ok to put my photo on the internet when I would never do so myself. I rue the day they put cameras in all smartphones and it doesn't surprise me in the least that some manufacturers are seeing a demand for straightforward mobiles like they had in the early 2000s - you know, the days when everyone wanted the thinnest and smallest mobile possible, while today they seem happy to carry something the size of a holiday paperback around. And, annoyingly, the side pockets in many of my favourite handbags don't take my phone any more.

      Oops, I've rambled off topic a bit there. Anyway, that's set me up nicely for Sunday afternoon! Sorry, back to the subject .... Let us know what happens, Tarketta, if it's not too schadenfreude-ish.

      Someone I knew posted about her new boyfriend who she had been seeing for a month. She was gushing about him + her friends commented saying should they start buying hats for the wedding. He promptly dumped her!!!

      Exactly and exactly! I'm all for people being happy, but plastering very newfound happiness all over FB is never going to end well. I don't even have a relationship status as I just don't want anything about me out there - as you say, once it's out there, it's no longer yours.

      I'll keep an eye out on this particular one but she's also someone who constantly posts pictures of her food when she eats out and pictures of herself blootered on a night out, so I guess it's in character.

      Blootered! Such a good word and ages since I heard it. Was it famously used a lot in a drama or publication, or is it a regional thing?

      Only just saw this post, sorry AndiK - I pinched it from my Glaswegian mate, it is such a good word

      FYI, the FB friend is now engaged...think they've been together a week.

      Ah, of course. That's where I have heard it - from Scottish people. It sounds great in their accent too.
