Avenger dumps lover for who they really want

This is an offshoot of sorts for a search for a lost story in a different fandom that didn't work out.  I got to thinking I'd like to see this story line in the Avengers.  The first characters I thought of was Steve and Tony in a relationship.  When Bucky comes back into Steve's life he leaves Tony in his dust.  How does he react; how much does he care of is hurt?  How does the team react?  Did they even know they were a couple?  How does it affect the team, how they work together or socialize?  This story could be any couple + 1.  Tony leaves Steve for Pepper.  Or Bruce.  Pepper leaves Tony for Phil.  Any three or more from the Avengers family.

I'm just tagging the possible characters.  I'll take any pairings in that circle.

I do recall one story has Steve so intent on searching for Bucky, he forget about Tony.  Not breaking up with him, just mindlessly not being there for events or his birthday or their first anniversary, something like that.  Anybody know which one that was?
