Metro- This one goes out to all the gooseberries out there.
All those third wheels who’ve tagged along with their best mate and their plus one, feeling like their sad, only child.
It’s only moderately less soul-destroying then spending every Saturday plonked in front of Netflix with your meal for one.
Well, one man, known only as ‘earthyhillgivens‘ on Imgur has managed to find the humour in the situation. He’s documented his life as a third wheel to his best friend and girlfriend, in hilariously awkward, and slightly unnerving, detail.
As a notoriously single man that has a lot of friends in relationships I rather resent the portrayal that this creepy bastard is giving all of us third wheels out there. There's nothing wrong with tagging along for drinks, or grabbing some dinner and bullshitting. Not every spare tire is some creep in the back that is accompanying his friends on the oddest of odysseys. Look at some of these pictures. A walk on the beach? A hike? Shopping at the mall? Jesus Christ kid, take a hint. Have some pride. Even the guy that's actually IN that relationship doesn't want to do that pointless shit. If the other two people you are spending time with are holding hands and COMPLETELY ignoring you then you are no longer the third wheel. You're the cans that get attached to the bumper of the 'Just Married' car. Just a necessary evil that's being dragged along with because no one has the heart to tell you that your presence isn't wanted. Nothing speaks to that like being thrown in the backseat like a little bitch. The fact that you were able to make an entire picture book of all the times your friends didn't care that you were there pretty much says it all. Jesus man, find a better way to spend your time. Has anyone told this kid about online dating? Here's a hint, don't include these pictures in your profile you friend stalking, relationship anchor. Realize when you are wanted, which from the looks of things is probably not all that often, and when you are getting in the way of some good, old fashioned romance. It really isn't all that hard to tell the difference. If these pictures are any indication it might be time to start following around a new couple. Either that, or pick up a hobby. I hear having consensual sex with strangers is a popular fad going around these days.
