My client today told me that everyone needs a third person in a relationship, and she has decided that I'm her third person - I was very flattered.
I'd not come across that phrase before but I like it. I guess we all need a good friend outside of a marriage/relationship, to be able to confide in and use their soft shoulders to lean on, and generally just be there.
I also wonder if twitter is the third person in other people's relationships, I think it certainly was for me, at least until I met up with some fellow tweeters for real.
Would love your thoughts on this?
