If I follow you, it's for one of the following reasons:
1. You followed me.
2. You said something interesting.
3. You interacted with me.
4. You boosted my post.
5. You faved my post.
I don't do malicious follows. If you don't want me to follow you, just block or mute. I'm a New Yorker and a writer, so I can take rejection.
