I can see how hurtful it is that your t wont see you on the weekend. She may have that boundary to keep her weekends to her personal life. Im so sorry you feel hurt maybe you both can see each other on Friday or Monday if that would workout if not maybe you can both touch base by phone. Hugs

You said she has limited availability during the week - does that mean she has offered you a time on a weekday while you are there?

Sorry that she isn't available when you want her to be. Have you asked when she is available? Maybe you can organize your visit to coincide with her availability.

You know what? I find her rather intransigent. Fair enough if she has something that she cannot cancel the particular weekend you are offering. However, I find it harsh that she refuses to make an exception under any circumstances, when you haven't seen her for 5 months.

Yes, there is respect of boundary and T's personal time but here it seems more rigidity and harshness. I would not want to keep seeing a T such as this one.

Maybe she could (not like she is obligated to but she could) offer a better explanation.

Maybe someone else purchased expensive tickets to something and it would be inappropriate for her to cancel, maybe her family would be upset that she cancels on them and their plans, maybe she has a date with someone who is visiting, maybe she has health problems and need her rest etc

If this event is planned before she knew you are visiting, then it would be hard for her to justify canceling her plans. She could just explain it better

Now if she discussed your visit with you and you made plans already and then sgd says “oh never mind I have plans” then it’s rude. But if you decided to travel to see her without discussing it with her, then really she can’t be expected to change her plans. All she cdn do is offer better explanation
