Please read all of the comments with a clear head. This is not a normal or healthy relationship and your priorities are out of whack.

Also, have you ever thought that maybe the other girl broke up with him and that’s why it took him so long to get over her? It’s possible he didn’t “choose” you and that would explain his treatment of you.

yeah.. dating more than one person for a couple months? Kosher, if you’re HONEST ABOUT IT

Dating someone else into the first year, not telling your girlfriend, refering to BOTH as your girlfriends and then making plans with one on the other one’s birthday?

your boyfriend is a fuckface. Power couple my ass, he’ll probably divorce you at 35 for 20 year old arm candy. move on.

I have to reiterate what some other bees have said: What IS a “power couple”? Movers and shakers in politics? Bigwigs in the entertainment business? Two of the top earners on Forbes 400 list? I don’t mean to downplay your “power couple” status if, indeed, you are one of those things, but if you were, I doubt you would be seeking advice here.

Regardless, unless you are staying with him for reasons other than emotional attachment (political ambition, money, etc.), there are so many issues here that I can hardly count them. Find someone who prioritizes YOU and will not take several years of jerking you around before he can half-heartedly “commit”.

Hi Bee,

He “is still not 100% over his relationship” the one he cheated on you with? That in itself says a lot. Why would you want to be with someone who treats you like a doormat. You deserve so much better. He seems like a real pos and I know it’s hard but you need to have some respect and move on.

princesspea77 :  This is a car crash.

Your boyfriend is an ass and you are a mug. You’re not a “true power couple”. He’s so incredibly disrespectful and untrustworthy and you don’t even have respect for yourself. Why are you letting him do this to you?

princesspea77 :  I am sorry but I am pretty sure that no “power couple” over started where the dude had 2 girlfriends and then fucked around until he picked one. No, just no. Sounds like you deserve better all round.

Honestly OP,  the only way you could be a power couple is if you held his hand and put a fork in a power socket!!

Seriously though…give yourself the best birthday present ever and Dump his two timing ass! You are worth way more than being some guys runner up. You deserve so much better and I truly hope one day you realize your self worth. If you stay with this shmuck you are doing yourself a disservice. Good luck bee I hope you find the strength to do what is the best for you.

So not cheating on you is something he needed a ‘slow burn’ to build up to? Wtf is wrong with your self esteem that you see this as being even remotely okay?

Seriously, do yourself a favour and get some professional therapy to deal with your incredibly low self esteem or you’re going to go through life being okay with all kinds of things that aren’t okay.

According to Urban Dictionary a “power couple” is a couple who are just as cool as each other and everyone looks up to their relationship. 👀

This is the first year on your birthday that he hasn’t been consumed with thoughts of another woman, and you’re concerned that he didn’t text you while at work? I’m so confused.

Forget the birthday. I can’t get past you counting the two years he was with another woman (or women?) as part of the three years you’ve been in a relationship with this man, who clearly didn’t think he was in a relationship with you. WTF? Really? Have some respect for yourself. The birthday is the least of your problems.
