Valentine’s Day relationship test subverted by big business

According to social media, you can find out if your partner really loves you by suggesting that they should peel an orange for you. If they are prepared to undertake this small act of kindness for you, then they are indeed a keeper.

However, big business has moved in to undermine the test, as up-market stores are now selling pre-peeling oranges, satsumas, kumquats and even grapes. And to minimise the effort required even further, you can have them delivered to your house in under 30 minutes.

So, if you feel the need to test your partner in this way, you should make sure that they haven’t been cheating on you with the internet.

Experts say that it may be better to address the issue more directly. For example, by asking your partner if they can lend you fifty quid.
