Ask Christine

Dear Christine,

My best friend is dating one of my other friends, and I feel like the third wheel. Whenever we go to the movies or the dining hall, they're completely disgusting with their face-sucking PDA, and it embarrasses me to be seen in their company. What can I do?

Sincerely, Third Wheel on Center Street

Dear Third Wheel on Center Street,

You should give your friends some "couple space." Allow them to be alone sometimes as a couple, and make it clear that, when they're around you, they should just be your friends. You might also want to clue them in to the fact that not everybody wants to see them making out, and that this is generally considered passé in our culture. Trust me, the rest of the world will appreciate it.

Do you have a question to ask Christine? E-mail them to!
