    I don't get why the others would be thinking the same. One is in a serious relationship herself and her boyfriend is here regularly. The other has just come out of a serious relationship so understands what it is like. The girl that makes the comments has never been in a relationship so it seems to me as though she just doesn't understand what being in a relationship involves.

    I don't just invite him along without considering my friends. I ask if it's ok if he comes over, comes out with us to the union etc.

    I don't get how having an authoritative position or winning anything would make any difference - I am Block Rep and met my boyfriend through winning a TV show.

    Is your "friend" avoidable? She is the one being rude here, not you.

    You have to ask permission to take him with you to the union? WTF? Who the hell is she to dictate how much time you spend with your BF. I would tell her to pull her head in next time, and say if she has any problems to take them up with you in private.

    What show were you on? are you Grace and Mikey??

    I meant if we (me and friends) had planned to go out on the Friday and my boyfriend came up, I'd try and say to friends "Is it ok if X comes out with us?" to be polite.

    She is avoidable if I try hard enough I suppose. Would prefer to talk to her about it though so I'll try that first and if that doesn't work then I don't think I can do too much more.

    No I'm not Grace! I was on a fantastic Channel 5 lunchtime quiz show called Brainteaser (if you've heard of it I'm impressed!)

    I don't see why your friend has a problem. One of my housemates practically has his girlfriend living here, she sleeps here most nights etc. As far as I am concerned, my flatmates can have whoever they want staying as long as they are pleasant, polite and don't make a mess etc.

    It's rather predictable that people have friends and girlfriends they want to invite back. The girl in the OP's story is being very rude, so I would suggest the OP tells her to shut the **** up and die.

    This has worried me now, Im going to stay at my boyfriends for a few days over the weekend! And I'm praying his flatmates like me! Oh well, they've been there 5 weeks, I've given him plenty of time to make friends without me cramping his style!

    And this from someone who, according to her profile, is a specialist in the area of "having dysfunctional relationships". Neat!
    I have had the odd dysfunctional relationship...I've also had several rather brilliant relationships, including a long distance one in my first year of university. Therefore I consider myself an alright advisor on the subject. And the part of my profile was meant to be a bit of a joke really, but I'll let you off.

    But yes, well done on making the obvious point that she doesn't HAVE to follow our advice. We're probably all jealous..or something.

    Quite rude of your friend to say that to your boyfriend.

    You're paying to stay there and you're allowed to have people over...tell her not to talk out of tone like that again.
