16 photos that perfectly sum up life as a third wheel

When your best friends are going out, it looks something like this.

BEING A THIRD wheel can happen to the best of us. Everyone has been in that position where you’re best friends with a couple and every night out seems to end up with just the three of you.

You’re not the first – and you won’t be the last:

Hanging on and being awkward.
