    For as long as I can remember, I have HATED housemates guests that come over and stay very frequently. When I was at uni, my housemate had a friend who came and didn't leave for over a month. This for some reason made me angrier than anything else ever! Now, I share a house with my brother and his girlfriend seems to be here every other day and they are always there. I tend to spend time equally at my partners house and he at mine so we don't get in people's way.

    What is my problem?! Why am I so angry?

    Go to your partners if you get that annoyed by it but you can't ask him to stop having his girlfriend over

    It's 100% not jealousy. There's nothing to be jealous of and no reason for it, that's why I don't understand why I feel like this

    What is it about her being there that annoys you?

    I think it's just the frequency of her being there that is irritating. It's literally every couple of days, so I feel a bit suffocated by her presence.

    I don't think I'd go to the extent of feeling angry, but I hate it when people have guests over. My home is my place where I can just cotch out and relax, when someone comes over who I don't know well I stop being able to relax in case I look like a slob.

    YES! This is it. I feel like I can't relax in my own home

    I think if you're the guest, you should be conscious not to hog the communal areas. Luckily I don't really care about how people percieve me, but I do like alone time.
