    If your neighbour says every time she sees you that she 'will pop over and see you tomorrow'. What on earth can you say to that? What would you say and have you encountered a similar situation?

    There's only so many time it can be a 'bad time'.

    I have an over friendly neighbour who I have no intention of being friends with. She irritates the hell out of me. I cannot make conversation with her as she is so boring. But she constantly informs me she is coming over to mine and will call in the next day. I feel I can't relax in my own home.

    You can't move out? Or at least be out of the house for most of the day?

    I tend to respond to everything by running away/ignoring it.
    So if it was me I would probably move away or never leave my house. Or maybe sneak out the back? I don't know. I don't recommend this though.

    Haha thanks for the replies. I am so unassertive and I dont want to offend her as she isn't a bad person, just lacking in social awareness! But I think it's rude to invite yourself to someone's house?

    I don't see why she can't invite me out somewhere like a coffee shop or her house even (I wouldn't attend either but she doesn't know that). I could then just make an excuse up.

    I can't move:-(

    I do of course say I'm busy, ignore the door, pretend I'm on the phone etc. but that only stops her for that one time :-(

    difficult to do without offending, personally i'd be a coward and keep the curtains closed. but the another way to do it may be to faint unhappiness or stress and say you just want some time to yourself. not sure if that would work

    Maybe you take charge of her "invitations" by going out for a walk with her when you have the time, that'll stop you from feeling like you're being intruded... unless your area is unsafe
