    I'm in my second year of uni and I moved in with my friend a few weeks ago. I can understand why she might be a little upset about me going home some weekends since we did move in together to be together, but she just shouted at me for wanting to go home this weekend to see my grand parents who visit once a year from Romania, they're only here for the weekend. I'm dreading telling her I promised my mum I'd go home and take her out for her birthday! I went home for my brothers birthday a few wwwks ago and she just complained that she doesn't go home for every single one of her family member's birthdays. She's a lot more independent than I am, and I'm very close with my family and I intend to keep it that way since it's my life. I feel that I have moved out of my parents house to live with another parent because all she does is nag! What should I do? I'd move out but I feel bad for leaving her. If she gets mad at me for leaving her every other weekend then I don't want to know how she'd be about me moving out full stop!

    Tell her to stop being so dependent on you. If you want to go home every weekend, how can she tell you what to do. You're an adult and have autonomy, she has no right to tell you what to do.
