Hi everyone, LW4 here. Thanks to all the commenters for your kind and (not in quotes) compassionate advice. As for A Dude and A Lady's advice? No help at all, but I laughed. I guess it was sort of a bratty question. The real issue is that this is getting to be an almost every-other-week affair, not including the time we spend with his parents as a couple. I don't really have an interest in becoming friends with his mom, and while I'm polite, it's just an awkward dynamic. I think I like the advice of preempting her invites and asking her to do stuff on my terms. That way I can at least loop my boyfriend in and maybe do something fun.
