I can certainly understand the feeling of betrayal of trust that you got from this person as your "mentor". But please don't consider this representative of the general population of Fetlife, or the general population of "alternative lifestyles" or whatever you want to call it. The sarcastic tone of my posts here in this thread is directed at this erstwhile mentor, not at yourself.
As to the friend in Orlando - it sounds like she's doing you a favor not talking to you. You don't need that crap. This is a great way to find out who your friends really are, is it not?
