This is the one person that doesnt have a date, when everyone else does in the group. All of your friends go on a movie, so you decide to tag along but find out they brought girls and you didnt, leading you to feel awkward as shit, or stupid, or if your just gay, nothing. i've personally done this a bunch of times and its not fun, and i dread doing it. other terms- wheeling it, 3rd/5th/7th/etc wheel.
John: Hey Eric, what are you doing tonight?
Eric: Nothing much, going to the movies with a few people.
John: Mind if i tag along?
Eric: Na, movie starts at 7, we are meeting there.
John: Hey guys!
Eric/Matt/Bill/Alex: sup john, wheres your date?
John: i dont have one?
Matt: Well looks like your the wheel tonight.
John: Wow thats fucking stupid.
Jake: You guys are fucking faggots, i didnt know i was wheeling it last night.
Paul: Sorry man, we thought you would bring someone.
Jake: Well next time you guys go out somewhere and want me to come, tell me if you guys are bringing girls or not, i fucking hate being the wheel
