Instagram reciprocity

Yesterday one of my favourite artists shared a photo of painting that I particularly liked. It does seem to me her technique keeps improving so I liked and commented on it with just one word – ‘amazing’. I really thought it was, you know?

For that she liked and commented on one of my latest patterns. It made me very uncomfortable. I presume she wanted to be nice and show that she engages with her audience, but I don’t have many followers at all, especially in comparison with her, and it made me feel like if she was telling me I commented only to get her to do the same but she was so cool, she didn’t mind.

I don’t know if it is ‘an autistic thing’ to interpret it like that but I guess I’ll stop commenting from now on (not that I do that often); I can only like and probably not very often either.
