According to a new dating website, the "Prince Harry effect" of having a third person intruding on your couple time can be eradicated by gently easing them on to a date of their own.
The good people at www.dinnerdates.com have selflessly offered up their services to keep that third-wheel out of your life by finding them a mate, so you and your snuggle buddy can get back to smooching in peace.
But wait one cotton-picking minute here. Has anyone actually spared a thought for us third wheelers?
Perhaps we don't want to go on a date?! Maybe your canoodling should be kept to a minimum until you're past that annoying, loved-up stage.
Case in point: Two friends, who shall remain nameless, were once a seemingly intelligent pair who never felt the need to lock themselves in rooms for days on end.
Once they'd become an item, however, boom! They left their room only to wash, answer the door for takeaways and make the third-wheel on the sofa feel bad about enjoying some Big Bang Theory and a bourbon biscuit ON HER OWN...ahem..
Surely a third-wheel is only a third-wheel because a couple are incapable of acting like two separate beings around them?
Treating the poor individual like a social leper who simply must be weeping into their pillow at all hours because they're [whisper it] single and have never known the joy of lying in bed all day gazing into another's eyes - how rude!
(FYI kids – been there, done that, gave back the T-shirt.)
Perhaps, rather than offering up assistance to the "thirds" around here, the website could arrange some kind of shock therapy for when a couple finally realise each other aint all that.
Maybe they could even give lessons in how to PUT EACH OTHER DOWN when around other people (yes, I am still here if you hadn't noticed…).
Meanwhile, if Prince Harry MUST be kept occupied, I can selflessly make myself free for horse-rides, volleyball games and royal outings.
For Queen and Country. OBV.
