For those who might not know, being a third wheel is when three people hang out and two of the three people are really into each other. The third person generally ends up feeling awkward.
I was the third wheel for ten hours today. I was studying with my friend when her crush crashed our study session. Sigh.

Sure I think everyone has been a third wheel at times...
But it really depends on the couple - I mean the older you get I notice it less that couples just sit there and spooky up with each completely leaving the other out... now a days, most are married and they just act normal - everyone seems to be included...
Third wheel is more for people you don't know well or when younger...1

I while back I was at a bar with a friend. A guy came to ask us to their table, and we went. She became the third wheel because the guy who asked us to the table only seemed interested in me. We left their table after a while because my friend was feeling super uncomfortable being the third wheel.
Then a little bit later another guy came to ask us to their table and this time I became the third wheel. I was meant to talk with the guys friend but it was SUPER awkward. We just didn't click and at the same time my friend and the guy were really hitting it off. I decided to leave to talk to other random people so that I didn't have to feel like an outsider.
What goes around comes around, I guess. 😅0
