Inside The Mind Of The Third Wheel: A Single Person’s Thoughts On Valentine’s Day

Tell them you are going to spend V Day on your own, by choice, and they will be like:

“You are not single coz no one loves you.” It only means you are ugly!

What the hell is wrong with me hanging with the person I love the most: Myself?!

*Going Hans style… SOLO!*

Well, this is what I tell everybody to look all cool, you know! Like see even Salman Khan is sexy… single, I mean! 😉

*I vouch to be taken only when Sallu bhai gets married!*

(That’s never gonna happen, is it?!)

But in my head, the thoughts are quite not what you imagine! Being the third wheel ain’t pretty and especially on the Godforsaken day in February when roses and chocolates are all around!

Happy Valentine’s Day…

  1. “Yeah, so?”
  2. No, no I can’t use that. I used it last year!
  3. “I don’t care, man!”
  4. Sounds sadder!
  5. “I have plans”
  6. I’ll just play gooseberry at my parents’ dinner date, as usual.
  7. Oh! God, I hate that bloody Saint V!
  8. Ugh couples!!!
  9. Just look at them getting all cuddly… lust is the new love!
  10. Na, na, na, I am miserable! I want to do that stuff, mommy!
  11. I am such a jerk magnet! Why don’t good guys like me???
  12. Do I need to smile more?
  13. Am I a love repellent?!
  14. Not only that I am single now, I know I am going to be single even next year, or the year after that!
  15. Oh! That’s pathetic!

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
