How do you not feel hurt?
I joined Twitter to meet other fans of an artist I have loved for years. I've been struggling to get followers and make friends. There is this one big fan account and the girl behind it posts regularly about the artist, but also about anxiety, depression, etc. I have commented a few times on her tweets and she "liked" my replies. I decided now that she "knows" I should follow her because she might follow back. I did and then direct messaged her saying I really like her account, I'm glad I discovered it, etc. Result: she left me on read!! Not even a simple thank you for praising her account. I'm hurt and I'm mad. I want to unfollow her so I'm not contributing to her follower count. Is there a way that someone could not feel hurt by this?
