Do you hang out with your neighbor ?
December 25, 2007 12:24pm CST
When I was a kid I used to play with almost all children in my age. We visit each other's houses. Make plans or even just to share sories. But we I grew up, everything turn out to be so different. Everything about competing in every single thing, from your grade at schooll, or who can go to the best university, or even who get the cutest boyfriend. And when I realize, we don't even talk to each other again. Every time we were bumped into each other, there'always some reaon for not say hi to each other. Why is that ? I think that's terrible And now, everytime I gets home from any activity, I just stay at home. i just made friends with people outside my neighborhood. Everything turn to stranger. What about you ?

Hello, Nitaqqsabil! I do talk to my neighbours, all of them. However, their age is too advanced compared to mine. They are the double or triple of my age, which means they are experienced people and usually stay home. I do stay home all day long aswell, so I don't hang out with anybody. I talk to them, I cumpliment them and this kind of things. The next door neighbour is younger than the rest, he is 23 or something like that, but he is still older than me. I talk to him and sometimes we go somewhere with his wife and his daughter. I also visit him sometimes, play games with him and all. Respectfully.

I never hang out with any of my neighbors, mainly because I don't exactly live in the most friendly of neighborhoods. I used to sometimes play with the others when I was smaller and younger, maybe about 8 or 9, but as I got older they all seemed to change and now mostly are smoking, drinking and having children at the age of 16.

After seen you discussion, I think long time, what happened at you these years were happened at me too. I think this perhaps become a rule. For different man has different thought, he must express his view or not, some expressing will hurt others, some will benefit others. I still hang out with my neighbor because I still believe: Once we dreamt that we were strangers. We wake up to find that we were dear to each other.

Hi,there! That's really a issue today.We don't have very close relationship with our neighbors.I remember when I was young,I had very close and good relationship with my friends in my neighborhood. We used to eat together and play games together.We just enjoyed being with each other and going to some other places together.However,I don't whether it is because that our house is not as the same as before or other reasons that we are not that familiar with our neighbors.Frankly speaking,I don't hang out with my neighbors usually.Actually I don't know the people around my house too much.But I haven't been here for a long time.Anyway,that's sth we should think about.Thanks for the discussion and have a nice day^_^

Not really.. since my neighbours keep changing.. so I hardly hang out with my neighbours. I'm usually at home, not around my neighbourhood, so I don't really mix around. :) Well, it's a pity, but I'm glad at least you are hanging out with your neighbours!

Well, I do know all my neighbors but I don't hang around with them. Even as a child, we were never really allowed outside, that's the house rule of my grandmother. So, we do know them and they know us, and sometimes they come over for parties or my parents go over there for parties but that's just about it. No grapevine sessions whatsoever, just pure neighbor acquaintances. =) Though they do come over usually since my dad is a doctor and they ask medical questions on their health.
