    • I have never been the chat over the fence, have a cup of coffee neighbor. I am always cordial, but have never struck up relationships with the other neighbors.

    • We live on a dead end street with only 4 houses.  Three out of the four houses will talk, help each other, baby sit kids, or grandkids.
      We exchange plants, receipes, and sometimes bring over snacks, or something new we’ve tried cooking, for each other to try.
      The fourth house has a brother and sister living in it 19 and 23, the dad lives in the next town with his girlfriend he comes and checks on them weekly. Kinda strange situation, but the kids are basically nice and if there is a problem with them, we talk to them and they usually settle down.
      It’s nice living in the suburbs but not feeling like we do, because of the way we are situated.

    • I know their names but I’ve never really had a major conversation with them. I always wave and say hello and smile when I see them

    • Wellllllllllll....being the social butterfly I am, I know many/most of the neighbors.  

      I live in a subdivision and I am active in the homeowners org., neighborhood picnic, and organize the annual rummage sale. I have formed a Dinner Club within the neighborhood and frequently have the neighbor/friends over for impromptu parties in my “lounge” and regularly set up dinner get togethers at the local haunts. My X and I had the BEST D*MN Halloween cemetary set-up on the block! Don’t know why...but neighbors occasionally come to me when they have a question regarding something within the hood!! Kids all knew my dogs and sometimes would come and hang out in the back yard to play with them. Recently, it has broken my heart to be asked by a couple of the kids, “why do I have to move?” Soon, they will be grown and come to realize that all our dreams don’t always work out or last forever....for now, I tell them the house is too big for just me.  Anyway.....

      I’m very friendly with the neighbors!!

    • I think part of me feels that, if you become too chummy, then you have to be “on” all the time, ready to chit-chat or help out with something.

    • Living in a tiny village, everyone is my neighbor.  The neighbors immediately behind me across the alley I don’t have much to do with. A crazy old woman and her daughter. I say hello and chat when I see them in church.   That’s about it.  I don’t like either of them very much.

      The lady who lives next door kinda keeps to herself.  We chat if we‘re both outside or downtown at the same time.  We bring each other Christmas goodies and exchange gardening tips, etc.

      The kid that lives further back behind me, I get along with great.  Don’t see him much, but I’ll chat with him if I see him out and about or have a beer with him in the  bar.

      The neighbor crosswise across the street is twenty seven and one of my nearest and dearest friends.  He’s my big ol’ Bear.

      Two doors down is an 80 yr. old couple.  She’s looney as can be, but he is also one of my nearest and dearest friends.  

      Rather a rambling answer I guess.  Would have been simpler to say, I love my neighbors mostly.

    • I live in a rental trailer court so people come and go pretty quickly. But my next door neighbor and I moved in about the same time and stayed. She is very nice to me, noticed I left my car lights on a couple of times and let me know before the battery ran down. She knocked on the door last spring when mowing her grass and offered to take care of mine too since the lots are so small...she was probably scared snakes were living in it since it had gotten very tall, I hate mowing...anyway, she says she’ll do mine and I say, you know what I would love to pay your teenage daughter to do it if she would like the job. Well, I have a great mowing girl now, whenever they do theirs they do mine so I don’t have to worry about it anymore. I also get along great with the onsite managers and the owner. They bring me small gifts like fresh tomatoes in the summer and stop and chat whenever they are nearby.

    • Although I’m a friendly person, I barely know any of my neighbors.  I always make a point of saying hi to anyone who walks by while I’m doing yardwork, and although most will at least respond, some act as if it’s an unwelcome intrusion into their lives.  This is a very insular community and I’ve heard from a few other “transplants” that the prevailing attitude here is “If I don’t already know you, I don’t want to know you.”  

      I was VP of my homeowners’ association a few years ago.  I got acquainted with a few neighbors then, but only because they would call me to complain about a problem within the neighborhood and ask what I was going to do about it. tongue out  I once tried to organize a neighborhood picnic/block party, but there was so little interest that I didn’t pursue it.  

      I do know my next-door neighbors on one side and they‘re nice people.  Although we don’t get together on a social basis, we do look after each other’s property when the other one is out of town.  They also keep a watchful eye out for me, since I’m a widow with no family in town.  I wish there were more around here like them!

    • My house is the third house on the street in a subdivision.  The 1st house neighbor, Cathie, becomes good friend.  Then the house between us, Julie, is also nice.  All three of us are talking organizing a block party in my back yard.  

      Julie is putting a swimming pool in her yard - I teased her of breaking one of our fence and turned that into a gate.

      My other side neighbor, Cindy, is great.  She passes her “bucket” to me all the time.  (Bucket: Margarita Mix)

      Others on the opposite side of the street, we know them all, their kids, their animals.  So I guess I know my neighbor around the radius pretty well.  (not surprised at all)

    • While my life does not give me the time to chat with the neighbors I leave sometime at 4 am and get home at 11 so it is a little tough. I do try to walk when I am home just to know who lives around. Some day I may find the time but for now I just say hello. Sad to say I would not even know them if I ran into them in the market.
