Banana, avocado: Men, here is why women’s Facebook statuses read fruit names

There are a lot of fruits doing rounds on social media and more and more people are getting concerned by the fruit attack on their timelines.

A quick check into your timeline will reveal two things: women posting fruits and men asking why women are posting fruits.

Feeling left out is such a crazy feeling, and it is easy to understand why most men are getting very irritated by the fruits flooding their timelines. Let us break down the fruit phenomena once and for all.

Every year, there is a challenge that is meant to raise awareness on breast cancer and encourage ladies to get screened and stand in solidarity with those who have breast cancer.

Since it is very easy to bypass a long text message or group message about breast cancer, a better strategy is to use some sort of coded message. The message is fun and gets around much faster than a long detailed lecture on breast cancer.

Previously, women were meant to post the colours of their bras. This year, you are sent a list of fruits that stand for relationship status. You pick the fruit that best explains your relationship status and post it. Then send the same message to women hoping that they will not share this secret with the boys. By so doing, you confuse men but have this shared secret with the women – solidarity.

Here is the meaning of the fruits:

Blueberry: I’m single
Pineapple: It’s complicated
Raspberry: I’m a touch and go woman
Apple: Engaged
Cherry: In a relationship
Banana: I’m married
Avocado: I’m the “other one”
Strawberry: Can’t find the right one
Lemon: Wish I was single
Grape: Wants to get married.

Now do not get mad the next time you see fruits on your timeline, and you can also go back and check whatever fruit your crush posted..may blueberries come your way.
