What your lunch says about your love life


Do you hesitate before tucking into that garlic pizza? Are your colleagues making fun of you for ordering the bunless option on burger Fridays? Find out how you’re totally giving away your relationship status over lunch.

  1. Compared to a year ago, your packed office lunch is:

a. Pretty much the same. Some days it’s toast with cheese or peanut butter, others, something indulgent like a pizza slice.

b. Devoid of carbs and sugar. It’s usually some kind of leafy salad with a protein and a veggie juice.

c. Slightly different, in that you’re trying to eat a bit more sensibly. Usually a takeaway sandwich like Woolies’ chicken avo on low-GI and an apple or banana from home.

  1. You think of your lunch in terms of:

a. It’s the highlight of your work day.

b. Whether it’ll give you garlic breath.

c. Nobody has time for a mid-afternoon slump.

  1. When eating lunch at a restaurant during the work week, you’ll probably drink:

a. Flavoured iced tea. Sure, it’s full of sugar, but the “tea” bit makes you feel virtuous.

b. Sparkling water. Lately, you’re also pretty into kombucha.

c. Col- brew coffee, with milk if you feel like a treat. A caffeine buzz is always welcome.

  1. When the waitron offers the dessert menu, you:

a. Say, “Why not?”, reach for it, and hope they have chocolate cake

b. Politely refuse, ordering a black coffee or herbal tea instead

c. Think about it, then decline. You had a brownie for breakfast.

  1. Your Friday night plans usually revolve around:

a. A bottle of wine, popcorn and some quality TV-watching time.

b. Whether you get a text from a certain someone.

c. Having after-work drinks and going where the night takes you.


Mostly A: The song Solid as a Rock best describes you and your bae. You might not be the lean, mean party machines you were when you met, but you’re okay with that.

Mostly B: You are in a new relationship and can’t remember when last you ate at home. Your bae thinks you have a fast metabolism, meanwhile you’re pretty hungry (and broke) when you aren’t together.

Mostly C: You’re single, but you’re not too stressed about that. You’re taking care of yourself and having fun. It’s all about balance.
