I've been living with my girlfriend for nearly 2 years now. About once or twice a month, my Mum wants to visit or meet up somewhere. I don't mind doing this occasionally (say 6 times a year), but she has a habit of asking all the time. If I say I'm busy, she asks about the next day.

My girlfriend and I are quite introverted and don't much enjoy social interaction with anyone. I have tried to explain this to my Mum, and she seemed to understand, but the behavior hasn't changed. She is a very social person, and I think she may not understand how draining social interactions can be for some people.

I (and my girlfriend) don't have anything against my Mum, I just would like her to be less insistent about frequent visits.

Does anyone have advice on letting my Mum know that, while I want to see her, it's not very often.

Thanks.
