Do you find more real people these days?

Just wondered if you're finding that there seems to be more real couples and single females these days than years past? Or are we just lucky...? lol

Having been involved in the lifestyle since the late 80's; I find much less real people now than then. Back then, I don't recall meeting anyone who's photos were not really them and recent ones. I also don't recall there being as much drama and games being played either.

In my opinion the etiquette of the past is almost non-existant these days. Which is a same. Some of the things I miss the most are:
* Asking the partner of the person you are interested in their permission before making a big move on the person you are interested in.
* Establishing a friendship with someone that includes other things than just sex.
* Men who took it upon themselves to make sure the sex was safe and didn't leave it up to the women to provide for such.
* The biggest thing I miss is gentlemanly manners and respect.

It is a different world these days where giving someone the benefit of the doubt almost always seems to backfire.

Got to say I agree with "littlebitofnc" I've been in the Lifestyle before the days of the Internet. Back then you had to go to a book store and read the adverts. But, then more of the adds were very real and a even more secret society than that that we have today.

It is not just this lifestyle that is suufering from the lack of respect when relating though.
