The 'Orange Peel Theory': exposing the truth about your relationship

If you're glued to TikTok like us, you'd already know that everyone is buzzing about the new relationship trend: 🍊 The Orange Peel Theory 🍊. This viral phenomenon suggests that your partner's willingness to peel an orange for you reveals the strength and commitment in your relationship. But is this just another trendy buzzword or a juicy insight into your love life?

Here's the truth:

While the Orange Peel Theory might be fun and spark some conversation, it shouldn't be a measure of your relationship's success. Love is a complex fruit, and there's no single way to gauge its sweetness. 🍊💦

Instead of obsessing over a trend, here's how to get a real picture of your relationship:

  1. Dive deep. Instead of relying on TikTok tests, talk to your partner honestly and openly. Ask about their needs, expectations, and feelings. Share your own and actively listen to their perspective.
  2. Actions speak louder than words (sometimes). While communication is crucial, pay attention to their actions too. Do they support your goals? Are they there for you during tough times? These small gestures can reveal their commitment and care.
  3. Values and goals: are you on the same page? A healthy relationship needs a solid foundation of shared values and long-term goals. Ensure you're both heading in the same direction and are comfortable navigating life's challenges together.
  4. Don't forget individual growth. While your relationship is important, never neglect your own happiness and well-being. Pursue your interests, set personal goals, and prioritize self-care. A fulfilled individual makes a better partner.
  5. Remember, you're not alone. Navigating the ups and downs of love can be challenging. That's where Maia comes in. She is your 24/7 relationship therapist, friend, and guide.
