Finding someone to marry in life is harder than finding a job that pays a living wage while also offering healthcare. Hell, finding someone acceptable enough to date at this point is torture enough. While drudging through the hell that is your mid-twenties, you have constant reminders that you’re single – not being offered a plus-one at a wedding, engagements filling every feed you’re subscribed to, and relatives asking “when you’re going to settle down.”
But listen, Aunt Linda – shit ain’t that easy.
Just look at the phenomenal Instagram feed of ‘Third Wheel Extravaganza,’ a woman who clearly is self-deprecating enough to revel in the fact that she’s single despite the deadness that sits behind her blank eyes.
You almost have to respect her dedication to the single craft. If you’re going to walk through life alone, you might as well make a mockery of it while also making all of your happily married friends look like assholes.
Her bio reads, “Ah, love. It makes the world go round. Unless you’re me. Then you just lurk in the background of cute couples, but hey.” You’d think it would behoove her to include some contact info for potential suitors, but with her Instagram following growing by the minute, she needs to strike while the content coals are hot and remain single for as long as possible.
Or at least until she gets a book deal. .
