    My thinking is that regardless of how the rest of the world behaves, I will continue to be civil, understanding, sincere, friendly, and honest with the other people that I share this planet with. There are many great, courteous guys on RJ. I think we need to see the inner qualities rather than how built, attractive, or any other criteria that we think is the ideal, special guy. It would help if we quit making narcissism part of our lives.

    It's civility that has significantly deteriorated over the years. Self-centeredness and self-entitlement have largely caused that deterioration.

    This. More and more people have severe entitlement issues nowadays. I really think that parenting is much to blame. Everyone's "precious snowflake" can do no wrong and the grow up believing they are, in fact, the center of the universe. It's a little scary. To quote my beloved Alanis, "Dear Narcissus boy, I know you're used to getting everything so easily. A stranger to the concept of reciprocity. People honor boys like you in this society."

    It's the internet, it allows people who are passive in real life to act like they're bad asses, and they think they can say whatever they want because largely they are anonomous.

    Very true...

    From my observations, some of these "gentlemen" in here think by replying back to you giving you a simple "Thank you for voting for/Hot listing/buddy listing me" or even participating in one of those The guy above you threads they are engaging in a serious commitment with the guy who messaged them or is above them. Jesus FUCKING Christ! Grow up and get some manners. You're not all that to think you are all that.icon_rolleyes.gif

    And then they wonder why they are still single and don't meet anyone.

    I really dont think much has changed over the years.

    Do people really expect me to believe that rudeness is a recently developed trait? How about selfishness, or self-centeredness, etc.

    This here, I too will continue to be civil and all the things that go with it. It's just in my nature and how I was raised. And DOMINUS made a good point, it mostly has to do with self-centeredness and self-entitlement. It truly does suck but as the saying goes, what can you do?
