The Orange Peel Theory: How TikTok is ruining relationships and forcing people to break up with their partners

What is the "orange peel theory" that went viral on TikTok?

Some users have admitted that they broke up with their partners because of the "orange peel theory". It spread on TikTok and sparked a lot of discussion.

It happened after a girl named Jenna told about her boyfriend's actions. Working as a cook, her partner brought home a container of egg whites. The day before, Jenna had complained to him that she couldn't separate the whites from the yolks when cooking because of her long fingernails.

"We usually surprise each other by buying ice cream or our favorite treats," she said, adding that she had not expected such a gesture. Commenters actively picked up on the topic of the video, calling what they saw a vivid example of the "orange peel theory."

This refers to the actions of your partner that are very important to you, but they do them without being asked. For example, when passing by a store, your loved one buys you your favorite chocolate bar because they know it will cheer you up. Or he peels an orange for you, even if you don't ask for it. These small acts of kindness come from a deeper level of caring.

The absence of such gestures can be a cause for concern and a red flag in a relationship. Some users said that in order to test their significant other, they turned to the "orange peel theory," which led to a breakup.

The guy explained his refusal by saying that he wanted to rest after work, because he would have to get up from the couch and go to her in another room. "But he works from home..." the post reads.

The girl admitted that she did not want to break up with her partner because of TikTok. However, the next time her partner failed to fulfill her request, she made the final decision.

Another user noted that not everyone understands this principle correctly. "The point is not just to randomly ask your partner to do something you just don't want to do. It's about seeing if he or she will do something small for you that you have asked them to do within reasonable limits," he explained.
