is besotted with the person they’re seeing. He or she is all they can talk about. And it seems a bit one-sided
When you’re with your pal, they seem in love and ready to fully commit while the other person appears disinterested and detached.
In Love Island we’ve seen Gemma Owen and Luca Bish couple up and… not do much else since bar a few hugs and the occasional kiss.
Eagle-eyed fans have noticed it seems as though Luca is the only one pulling weight in the relationship, while Gemma doesn’t say an awful lot at all.
‘Luca genuinely likes Gemma and i don’t like that because she puts in no effort at all,’ said one viewer on Twitter.
Another added: ‘Luca went to sleep in the dog house and Gemma ain’t make no effort to go with him. Focus on yourself King.’
Of course, we’re seeing a very edited, tiny glimpse of the couple’s relationship – so we can’t really know the dynamic.
But for many people, those little snippets of what appears to be an imbalance of affection has felt oh so familiar.
What can you do if the person your mate is head over heels for just doesn’t seem as keen in the other direction?
