Hey guys, I am autistic.
And I have a question.
What do you answer to people who say the food you made is good or delicious or something like that?
I am reluctant to say thank you because there is no reason to be grateful for their gratefulness, which is what they want to express as I assume.
So I usually go with a smile or "I am glad that you like it" or so... and it sounds weird to me.

A ridiculous question I guess. But it bothers me.
>>
I'm glad you like it is a perfectly acceptable response! Just keep going with that :) Much easier to make sound genuine than thank you for me!
>>
thank you or i'm glad you like it is fine, anon

you can say both even, if you'd like

relax
>>
Your response is perfectly fine anon
>>
'thank you' is fine, it is a compliment, you thank people for their compliment.

> there is no reason to be grateful for their gratefulness

there is no reason to be grateful for their praise. when they say your food is delicious, they are praising you. it is not directly an expression of gratitude.

>So I usually go with a smile or "I am glad that you like it"

'i'm glad you liked it' is absolutely fine, as is smiling, obviously.

You say "Thank you", or "I'm glad you like it".

>I am reluctant to say thank you because there is no reason to be grateful for their gratefulness

That's irrelevant. You say "Thank you" because that's what society expects you to say. It doesn't have to make sense; it's what's expected. It's the default response to a compliment.
