Is there any command to teleport me just 3 blocks behind a player? I haven't found any command to do this and there doesn't seem to be anything about this question, I'm quite sure that this could be done with the /execute command but I don't know how to it (I don't have much knowledge about the /execute command so this is why I'm asking this question) also I'm playing on 1.16

Try using:

/execute at PLAYER_2 run tp @s ^ ^ ^-3

This will execute at them and put you 3 blocks behind where they are looking. Beware if they are looking up that you will be teleported into the ground.

    You can use /execute rotated to make sure it does not include pitch, thus preventing them from going into the ground
