Two’s company, three’s a crowd.
Three throws off the balance and creates parallel communication chains in a simple relation.
Three creates tension and doubt.
The heart to heart nature of the interaction is lost. Suddenly, there’s no more talk. There’s just conversation; loose talk; distraction and a lot of noise.
Sometimes, a quiet time is very necessary. Three kills that.
Many a wonderful companionship has been dulled by the wicked presence of the third wheel.
Three just wants to be in the thick of the action. Three is close to none of the two, but, just hangs around. Always. And, slowly pushes out all other meaningful interactions.
Three wants to be privy to every detail of every happening.
And suddenly, there are no more special secrets.
Everything becomes a mere routine due to the presence of a three.
Forced laughter, stupid jokes, more loose talk – symptoms that there is an unwanted three.
Oh Three! How I hate thee!
A stubborn three is an indication that it’s time to flee. It’s time to make the trio a duo again.
By silently walking away. . .
