90% of us have experienced the awkward situations like a ‘third wheel’ with our couple friends. If you are in that 10% who haven’t, please don’t. No matter how much awwww it seems, somewhere inside, you always curse yourself for getting stuck with them.
Here are 11 awkward situations one Encounters when stuck with a couple
1. Kebab mein haddi
We generally call an unwanted guest the Kebab mein haddi person. But here the case is totally different. You have a choice, but because of your, ‘Yeah sure i’ll hangout with you guys’, is itself a self proclamation of KMH. Don’t do that to yourselves. No matter how fun or outgoing you are, this is an unseen torture.
2. Selfies are useless
The couple friends might take you to a place which is beautiful or really cool. Obviously you would want selfies having fun. But let me aware you. The selfies won’t look that fun when the couple end up hugging and you awkwardly smiling in the picture. Carry a selfie stick for such times. Or don’t go at all.
3. Come with us, you will have fun. We promise.
The promise is a lie. Always. They will befriend you, make you comfortable at the beginning. As you start to realise that after all this wasn’t a bad idea, you will find yourself walking ahead alone with your couple friends holding hands and having the time of their lives. It is given my friend. Your friend will forget you after a while. So save yourself before it’s too late.
4. Being single doesn’t rock
You can shout all you want. Even wave flags or get it tattooed on your head. But hanging out with the couple friends will make you know that being single doesn’t rock after all. If you still want to continue to believe in this philosophy, then chill. Chill with only single people.
5. Be ready for surprise appearances
I miss spending that time when it was just us. Let’s just have a girls day out. Come on!’ Be all honest and blunt. Book a day with your friend. Take the charge. But let me warn you. Be ready for surprise appearances of their love partner and becoming the KMH. AGAIN! You can keep some great curse words ready too and remind yourself not to ever do that again!
6. Stop it. Just STOP IT
You know you love mushy things too. Being romantic. Getting lost in a world where no one else matters. But when you are the audience, it gets haunting. You can smile all you want, with the set of perfectly glowing teeth. But a squeaky voice will keep playing in your head throughout. ‘Aww that’s cute, but I hate PDAs. People are staring guys. Get a room. For the love of god, stop it already!
7. Acting skills improve
No matter how torturous and irritated you feel in this awkward situations… you always have to keep up with it and act like its normal. In-fact act like you are a part of them and completely feel loved around them. Eeww, actually don’t. But you learn to hide and not show a sign of boredom on your face. Else be ready for, ‘honey, we are making her uncomfortable. Stop it!’, topped with some annoying giggles.
8. Hate yourself a little
This is the best time to avoid your surrounding and pay some attention on yourself. Hate yourself a little. Imagining how you could be having the same moments right now, but only that you are not. Hate yourself for looking like a potato in front of them. The unwanted guest in an awkward situations. Hate yourself for hating them and knowing that you actually don’t have the right to blame them. It’s just bad timing. Or maybe you are just cursed.
9. ‘You will have that someday’ liners
Don’t think that your couple friends don’t know how weird and awkward you feel around them. Also get ready for some really motivational and not so wanted advice on how to find your, ‘soulmate’. Sit with all attention and appreciate their struggle to make you understand how you will have this one day. Follow up by, ‘oh yeah yeah. I know. I am waiting for the right person. Chill you guys (and shutup now for f*ck sake)’.
10. Phone is your only companion
We all know the best way to avoid awkwardness, especially in public. Actually in private or public, getting stuck as alone often drags our hand automatically to our pockets and bring out our best friends for that time – our cell phones. Thanks to technology, we can escape via calls, texts (even if you are pretending) and of course internet. If not a great one, it does rescue us to an extend. Yeah? Keep your phones 100% charged always.
11. They are your only hope
No matter how awkward and weird it gets, somewhere inside you will always have a tini tiny percent of hope that you will your time too and when you have it, you will make your single friends feel the same way. No harm in being a little sadist? Just kidding. Don’t do that!
