My SO's cousin wants to be Facebook friends with me. How can I kindly say no?

One of my awesome boyfriend's distant relatives noticed that I'd liked a kind message she left for my SO on his wall, checked my page, saw that he and I were together and sent me a private message asking if we could be Facebook friends. As a general rule, I do not friend people I've not met in person. I've never been great at sugarcoating things; how can I politely and respectfully decline?

Who's the host and what does he do?

Emergency etiquette question: A family member is the father of the groom for a wedding this weekend. He and the groom's mother are divorced. He has behaved very well towards her, but she tries to get between him and his grown children. He was told today that she has arranged for a college friend of the groom to be the "emcee" for the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night. The invitations for this dinner were issued in both parents's names. The groom is oblivious to this issue and his father wants him to remain so. What should the father do? He was under the impression that HE was the host and would be acting as such but he has been essentially excluded from the planning process for this dinner. Any advice, experiences that are similar, clarification of the role of the father or of an "emcee" for a rehearsal dinner would be very helpful.

I just received a wedding invitation to a friend's wedding. The invitation itself was addressed to me only. In the RSVP, there are two blanks... one where I'm to fill in my name, and another labeled "Number attending". I'm not sure if this means I'm allowed to bring a date or not. [more inside]

How can I politely get people to stop using a nickname?

My name is Michael. A very small number of people call me Mike, which I don't regard as my name, but I don't really think it's a big deal. The only time it really bugs me is when they introduce me to other people as Mike or send group e-mails addressed to Mike, because then others think my name is Mike. What is the most polite way to request that someone use my actual name? Do you think this is a petty request? [more inside]

urinal bathroom etiquette

I work in an office with one bathroom on the floor. In the bathroom, there are 3 urinals, side-by-side, with short dividers between them. Given that when I use the bathroom, there is about a 50% chance that at least one other person will already be using a urinal as well, which urinal generally gets the least amount of use? My goal is to always use the urinal that has the least amount of use, mostly for OCD-type reasons. [more inside]
