    Smile Re Two"s company; three's a crowd.

    Dear teachers,

    I am writing to ask the following expression.
    "Two"s company; three's a crowd." What does this mean?

    Thanks!

    Emily

    Default Re: Re Two"s company; three's a crowd.

    "Two is company" refers to two people, notably a couple, like boyfriend and girlfriend, or two good friends, or a husband and a wife. If you and your partner/friend want to be alone or do something together, but your friend or a family member is there with you, that makes three of you, and that's too many people, especially if you want to be alone. "Three is a crowd." It's just too crowded.
