In a Facebook video that has garnered over 1.1M views as of this writing, Former Senator Serge Osmeña gave advice to his brokenhearted niece and likened loving a guy to...pizza. He said, "When you have an issue with a guy, like pizza, you don't instantly reject. Maybe you don't like one topping, ayaw mo ng bell pepper, okay, tanggalin mo lang kasi gusto mo pa rin kainin yung pizza. You don't like onion, remove it, eat pizza. But you see, if you love pizza, if you love the guy, you have to take it, take him as he is, then adjust. Don't try to change him kasi he is a pizza, he is supposed to be a lot of things."
But when his niece mentions that she thinks there's another girl, here's what Osmeña replied, "The only love triangle that is acceptable is a pizza slice." LOL! Watch the full video below:
We couldn't agree more! Pizza slices aside, we gathered more funny food references to decode the complicated dish that is love:
Truth: Creme brulee can never be Jell-O
Julianne Potter: You're Michael. You're in a fancy French restaurant. You order crème brûlée for dessert. It's beautiful. It's sweet. It's irritatingly perfect. Suddenly, Michael realizes, he doesn't want crème brûlée. He wants something else.
Kimmy Wallace: What does he want?
Julianne Potter: Jell-O.
Kimmy Wallace: Jell-O?! Why does he want Jell-O?
Julianne Potter: Because he's comfortable with Jell-O! Jell-O makes him comfortable. I realize, compared to crème brûlée, it's...Jell-O, but maybe that's what he needs.
Kimmy Wallace: I could be Jell-O.
Julianne Potter: No. Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O.
Kimmy Wallace: I have to be Jell-O.
Julianne Potter: YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BE JELL-O!

The "Pickle Jar Effect" aka "Ako ang nagbayo, nagsaing, iba ang kumain..."
You know how it's a struggle to open a pickle jar? Liken that to a relationship where your partner doesn't open up and is hard to figure out. You work hard AF to "open the jar" and make him a better dude. But it never "opens," and he moves on, only to be version 2.0, aka the perfect man whose "pickle jar" gets to be fully opened by another girl reaping all the benefits you trained him for. Yikes!
Disclaimer: Urban Dictionary provides a different deifnition and says the Pickle Jar Effect is "The effect that happens when a girl refuses to have intercourse with one partner. Then with the next partner, [she] finally, and often easily, has intercourse for the first time."
Leche flan, anyone?

Caviar vs. Catfish
When your guy breaks your heart and settles for a lesser version of what you offer, make like Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl and say, "Once men have tasted caviar it baffles me how they settle for catfish."
Make sawsaw the fish balls...
