    I’m a “the more the merrier” type of person, and I also like to be able to deflect a little bit of the spotlight, so I’d be cool with it.  It’s ok if you feel that way…as long as you act gracious!  As you said, she can’t help that it’s her b-day.  

    I’m sure it’ll be just fine.  Have fun!

    I wouldn’t like it, but it’s no ones fault so I gues I’d just have to suck it up.

    Has his girlfriend made mention that she wanted to steal your thunder or that your friends should be celebrating her birthday over your bachelorette?  It may be her birthday, but she may likely just keep it quiet to give you your space!

    Either way, it wouldn’t bug me at all.  I don’t like being in the spotlight, so sharing it would be nice for me!

    i’m the more the merrier kind of person.

     but why do you have to have a joint birthday celebration with her?

    is she inviting her friends also to your b-party?

    sounds like the gf is just  joining  your festivities.  i would buy her a drink and acknowledge it is her birthday. even have everyone sing happy birthday but then stop there.

    She can’t quite change her birthday, and since your plans are already set, the only choices are: ask her not to come, let yourself feel bitter, or accept it and co-celebrate. There are going to be many, many occasions in life where you have to “share.” Maybe someone will get a big promotion and want to celebrate it on your birthday; maybe someone gets married on your first anniversary. There’s only 365 days in most years, and chances are someone will have a special occasion on each and every one of them.

    Wouldn’t bother me at all.

    It was a guest’s birthday at our wedding so we sang happy birthday. People can’t help when their birthday falls.

    @ajillity81:  +1. Unlesss she is inviting all her friends, and there will be a birthday cake for her, it is not a ‘joint’ party. If I were you, I’d feel honoured that she chose to spend her birthday with you and your friends, rather than with her own!

    @sharky:  It’s not her fault, and it can’t be helped so you’ll have to forget about it. I would give this girl the benefit of the doubt that she’s got enough class to not try and be a spotlight hog and steal your thunder. Have FUN, and congrats!

    It would bother me just a little bit inwardly (even though it’s childish as you said!), but on the surface I would be fine with it. I wouldn’t be so inwardly bothered by it anyway that it would ruin my night. But yeah, I can understand feeling that way, even though I’d never admit it in real life!
