In this instance, the problems between Susan and Mark arise due to the incompatibility of the two individuals’ understanding of reciprocity. From Susan’s perspective, she thought being pleasant and fun to be around during the party was the least she could do as a sign of gratitude for Mark’s invitation to the party. Therefore, they interacted within a reasonably common framework of friendship where they laughed, looked at, and even touched each other without reading much into it. However, Mark had underlying romantic interests in Susan, which influenced him to interpret simple, friendly gestures as a sign of mutual interest. This challenge lays bare the diverse facets of reciprocity that define interpersonal relationships.
