Woman becomes internet sensation for documenting her life as a third wheel

A woman has become a viral internet sensation for documenting one of life’s most relatable scenarios: that of being a third wheel.

The woman has been sharing hilarious photos of herself surrounded by happy couples on her Instagram feed, aptly named Third Wheel Extravaganza, for the last five months, building up a loyal following of almost 5,000 users (at the time of writing).

Giving a shout out to anyone who has ever been in the same position, she has shared the brilliantly deadpan photos of herself at friend’s weddings, engagement parties, coffee dates and shopping trips.

“Ah, love. It makes the world go round,” reads her bio.

“Unless you're me. Then you just lurk in the background of cute couples, but hey.”

Thankful for third wheeling.

The snaps started going viral at the beginning of the week, when the third-wheeler’s sister shared a selection on image-sharing website imgur.

“My sister is forever alone,” she wrote. “Decided to use the opportunity to showcase her third wheeling skills.

“Yes she is single… No she doesn't have an imgur account, but she does lurk occasionally.”
