‘Maybe she really doesn’t. But just because she doesn’t want it doesn’t mean she doesn’t need to be treated well. She’s your queen? Then treat her like one. Get a job mate.’ Pete, the group’s love doctor advised.

‘But I am still a full-time student. How do you expect me to get a job with no experience?’
