Old Fashioned

Does anyone here struggle with being semi-old fashioned? Is being old-fashion a good thing or bad thing or both or neither? For example one aspect, I thought it was common courtesy to call people Mr, Ms, Mrs but it turns out some people have a real issue with these titles. The way it was presented to me is that I was demeaning myself in a way by placing them "above" me in a hierarchy. In reality I was doing it out of mutual respect and not deference. I can understand from a feminist point of view why Ms or Mrs can be intrusive and labeling. However, I would like to be respectful. I usually simply just ask what someone prefers and it's not a big deal. I just wanted to know if there were others who maybe have learned or struggled with this lol
