It’s been a topic in my mind in the past, and it came up in a little group chat the other day.
Friends and friendships. Particularly within kink and/or the industry.
Particular frustrations, to paraphrase, “I thought we were friends, but we don’t talk any more and she no longer replies to me; was I just a customer”
I mean. Possibly. And it can be hard. If you thought the nature of your relationship was different to how the other person saw it.
But friendships in general are very complex.
