What Its Like To Be In A Three Way Relationship Aka A Throuple

###This weekend I found out that one of my friends was up until very recently in a “throuple.” A throuple, for those of you who don’t know, is a three-way relationship. Like, three people date each other.  I know. I basically couldn’t have been clutching my pearls any harder.

Anyway, my friend agreed to let me ask her some questions on being in a throuple for the blog, as long as I kept it anonymous because, “it’s a sensitive issue.”

First of all….what? How do you start a three person relationship? 

 It was actually a total accident. I started dating this guy who had gone on a some dates with this girl a few weeks prior, and she decided she wasn’t really into him that way, but they could be friends.  They stayed friends, he introduced us at a party… and as it turns out she was more into me than she was into him.I was really into him, I was pretty into her, and the next thing I knew the three of us were doing things like going out to dinner together, getting drinks together, going to parties together, and um… well doing other fun things together.

They never would’ve been a thing independently if I hadn’t come along.  I’m not sure if it were a covalent bond or an ionic bond (if we’re talking science speak here), but I was definitely the electron being shared.  Maybe more ionic… I hung out with them separately also.

Did it ever feel like someone was a third wheel?
