Chances are that you have been or felt like the third wheel at some point in your life. Having two best friends that are dating can put you in an awkward position. And even though being a third wheel may feel like the loneliest place on earth, you're not alone!

1. You have the benefit off having two best friends.

A lot of people go their entire lives looking for that friendship that will last through the test of time, and few people ever find someone that they can call their best friend. You, on the other hand, have the ability to say that you have two best friends, that you love equally.

2. You learn how to solve relationship problems

When your friends get into a fight, you're most likely going to be caught in the middle of it. Although it may be annoying and stressful because you don't want to come in between them, you learn how to solve problems in a mature manner. This problem solving skill not only comes in handy in your friendship triangle situation, but in every relationship in your life, currently and in the future.

3. The opportunity to have a double date is ALWAYS there.

Having friends that are dating couldn't be any better when it comes to your own dating life. Now you can make first dates less awkward by bringing your two biggest supporters, and of course you need to get their approval before dating anyone. Killing two birds with one stone.

4. You have to deal with PDA. All day.

PDA comes along with being in a relationship, especially in the beginning stages. It is just something that you have to deal with, because you love them and are happy that they are happy. Putting up with the excessive amounts of PDA is your way of saying "I love you", which is much more personal than eating someone's face off.

5. At the end of the day, you could always be the 5th wheel.

There are times you feel left out and lonely, but always remember that you could be the fifth wheel! This picture makes being a third wheel look like something beyond amazing.

At the end of the day, they are your best friends and no matter what happens they will be there for you. Maybe one day side walks will be wide enough for three.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.
