This Dude’s Instagram Account Is Dedicated To His Life As A Third Wheel

If there’s one thing that everyone can agree on, it’s that being the third wheel really sucks. There’s nothing worse than seeing two people you care about be madly in love. On the outside, you have to smile and act like nothing is wrong, because you’re obligated to love and support them. On the inside, you’re slowly dying of jealousy and loneliness while dreaming of Twinkles and other coping mechanisms for your crippling single status and general lack of purpose in life. It’s such a bitch.

At least you can take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone. A 29-year-old New Yorker named Peter Alden has dedicated his entire Instagram, complete with the username “imnotathirdwheel,” to the chronicles of his life as a perpetual third wheel to his brother and future sister-in-law. Peter claims he is “always around” the happy couple, and this proves disturbingly true after a quick glance as his account.

You’re a goddamn gem, Peter.
