    basically she doesnt want him round to stay for a few days as she wants me to work and revise before i go back to uni. im 19 and i think its grossly unfair that im being treated like a kid. Does anyone have any arguments i can use to change her mind?

    Maybe if you just invited him round for dinner and he charmed her then she'd be more easily convinced that he'd be a good influence to have around the house.

    Perhaps a few days is a little too long a time. How about for just a day?

    I'm assuming the few days is because the boyfriend was met at uni and lives a fair distance away?

    Has she met him before? If not, maybe you could invite him over for dinner so that thye could meet properly?

    If they have, and her main worry is that you won't get any work done, then work all day every day for a week, and then you can have some off-time when he comes over.

    All about compromise I think...
