If you’ve ever had the unpleasant experience of being the “third-wheel”, you know how uncomfortable or embarrassing it can feel. And so does this young lady known as @thirdwheelextravaganza on Instagram. She has made it a point to post photos of her in foreground while others have fun in the background, as if she doesn’t even exist.
It sucks to be alone. It sucks to hang out with other couples when you’re by yourself. It sucks to be a third-wheel. In other words, it sucks to be her.
The caption for her Instagram account appears as follows: “Ah, love. It makes the world go round. Unless you’re me. Then you just lurk in the background of cute couples, but hey.”
One more thing. For now, she remains nameless. But if you think about it, isn’t that the point
Here Comes the Bride
“Congrats to Henry and Hero.”
It absolutely sucks to be alone at a wedding.
“Plane” and Simple
“Third wheel strangers on a plane edition: when they have the middle and aisle seat, there is no escape…”
Ever been the third-wheel while seated on a plane? It leads to 30,000 feet of pure hell.
Here Comes the Bride… Again!
“Third wheel: wedding edition. Congrats to Emma and Tyler!”
How many weddings does she attend? Must be brutal to see all that love and happiness around her.
“Third wheel: study time edition.”
She’s probably thinking, “can we actually get any studying done?”
Reach Out and Touch Someone
“Third wheel pro tip: Sometimes the significant others don’t even need to be present. A phone call will do.”
Been there, done that. It sucks to listen to your friends talk to their significant others while you just sit there, all alone.
Home Field Disadvantage
“Sometimes you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to third wheel.”
She’s even the third-wheel in her own house.
Kiss Me You Fool!
“Thankful for third wheeling.”
Now that is a the ultimate look of unhappiness.
The Fifth Wheel
“Why stop at third wheel? Dream big super star.”
What’s worse than being the third wheel? Well, how about another couple to make you feel even worse?
Proud Parents to Be
“Third wheel: cute pregnant couple edition.”
When the baby is born, she will become the fourth wheel.
Too Close for Comfort
“Third wheel continued.”
Ever been the third wheel sitting next to a couple making out? Ouch!
Third Wheel of Walmart
“Third wheel in E minor.”
It sucks to be a third-wheel while shopping. Clean up on aisle nine.
What’s So Funny?
“Third wheel forever pt 2.”
Laughter can be the best medicine. But apparently not for her.
Why So Glum, Chum?
“Third wheel eternal.”
Glum is defined as “looking or feeling dejected; morose.” I think this photo is the very definition.
“Third wheel forever.”
One day she will find happiness. Not sure if that will be any time soon, but she will.
The World’s Most Popular Third Wheel
“Over 1,000 followers, my dear third wheel enthusiasts! It’s amazing what a little lurking around couples with a deadpan face can do. God bless!”
What’s amazing about this pic is that she posted it on Feb. 22, 2017. It indicates that she just surpassed 1000 followers. Exactly one week later (March 1) she has 10,900 followers. Wow!
