bwcoyote. The "hobby ettiquette" , I have found, is usually there for GOOD REASON. There are sort of "established rules of engagement" and some people like to color outside those lines. I will say certain gents are a good client to many and may get special deals. BUT, if you treat ladies like they are NOT in this for a business, you may end up with FRIENDS...are you SURE you want that??? lol...some of us are GREAT at blurring those lines, but, THAT is a double edged sword, too...so be CAREFUL! No strings attached is MUTUALLY beneficial.
