You can call me weird but I am following some people I dislike. I follow the people who :- ☻Post insight, helpful, funny or scintillating opinions. ☻Ask genuine, mind-bending, trending or unique questions and don't seek validation. ☻Share eloquent, beautiful, creative or interesting myTakes. ☻Some enigmatic, informative and classified acquaintances. ☻People who are suffering from cancer so that I'd keep up with them to make their life as happier as possible.
So, even if I like a specific person and he/she doesn't qualify for at least one of the above criteria, I won't follow him/her. And there are some people I don't like but I'm following them because I'm the one who learns from the enemies/rivals too. They must have some speciality or expertise in some field.
I don't follow back because this is not a facebook where friendship essentially needs validation by having the person in the list. By following someone, I'd easily see their activities in my feed and threads and that's the only reason I follow someone.
At the end, I wanna say that there ARE some people I like a lot but I'm not following them. And if you are reading this, I wanna say to you that I love you because you're awesome. My profile isn't following you but my heart and soul certainly doing this :)
