Neighbors are the people who live near us. In your opinion, what are the qualities of a good neighbor? I think a good neighbor is there to lend a hand, but not nosey about all the details - a good neighbor is someone you can lean on and enjoy good times with - a good neighbor does not pry nor does he gossip.

Since my closest neighbor is 7/10 of a mile away from me, we don't visit often...only in passing with our vehicles. Good neighbors are there for you when you need them, but don't spend lots of time bending your ear when you least need them to. My neighbors are great. She is not nosey but will be there to listen if you need her to. She doesn't like to gossip and best of all...she doesn't borrow things all of the time!

Thanks for the best response....boy you are going back a ways! I need to go back and mark my best responses too! Maybe this summer, when the kids' activities slow down some! Hugs!

A good neighbor bakes you something when you move it. Or when you have a baby she makes you dinner. If you see them struggling you lend a hand. A good neighbor does not low blow and call you names or scream at you in from of their dishonest kids. I used to be the one where all the kids come over for hours on end, but I am no longer that person and I think everyone on my street is pretty ticked off that he free baby sitting has dried up. I'm friendly but I keep my distance now. I think I was a great neighbor but no I really do not want anything to do with these people on my street!

We have a wonderful neighbor. My husband works 6 days a week and I am partially handicapped...can't stand and can't walk but a few steps at a time with my cane, so I don't go out much. Anyway, hubby is kept pretty busy with work and doing the shopping and such. Whenever our neighbor mows his lawn, if ours needs it, he mows ours while he does his! Now that is truly being a wonderful neighbor! What a gift! What a nice man!
