But what if we were to throw a new theory into the mix that might make you question every move your significant other makes from now on?

TikTok user Amy Shin, @amyyshin, recently had viewers freaking out when she explained a popular Korean dating analogy.

Amy explains that you have to imagine yourself in a relationship. So you and your significant other are having dinner with a close friend.

"Now, one of the lovely side dishes on the table is ggaenip [or perilla leaves]. It's important to note that the dish is specifically ggaenip, because it is known to be difficult to pick up with chopsticks. Now, this close friend of yours is having a hard time picking it up. She's going at it for a really long time, so your man reaches over, picks it up for her, and puts it on her dish. You didn't even notice she was struggling, but he did."

This leads to the question of whether or not this is okay for your significant other (S.O.) to do. There are also a few factors that could change how you feel about the situation. Does it matter whether or not your S.O. knows the friend or not?

Viewers had a lot to say in the comments, with some stating in certain cultures it can be an intimate gesture of love, representing respect and affection.

Others said they would want to see their S.O. helping out a friend otherwise, "I don't want him lol".

Either way, it seems like this is another agree-to-disagree situation for the romantic world.
