We moved into our house a couple months back and I gotta say this is the most comfortable that I have been in a long time. Our neighbors are really friendly(never had friendly neighbors before LOL)and its so nice to have friends so close to home.When we were moving in most of them stopped by and asked if we needed help and to welcome us.It was the only time a neighbor had done this before..and we have moved A LOT. Are your neighbors nice?do you even talk to your neighbors?OR are they annoying and loud(like our old onesLOL) OR are you the annoying loud neighbor!!LOLjk THANKS ALL!

Well, I don't like my neighboors because one of them puts junk in our mailbox and used to read our mail, another ones children walk in and out of OUR house whenever they want without even knocking (like seriously I can come home from school and he will be in our house with nobody else home taking a potty break or somthing), another one got pissed at us because my mom didn't come to a candle party because we couldn't make it (What the hell is a candle party?), and my other neighboor curses in front of like 2+ year old children. But we do have one or two nice neighboor(s) and the rest we dont really know. Am I the bad neighboor, or are they just weird?

WOW, you have some weird neighbors. I think that putting junk in a mailbox is illegal.(I think).Also trespassing is illegal too LOL..those kids are tresspassing!!I say if you come home and they are in your house you call the cops and tell them someone is in your house.Seriously it would teach them a lesson.I dont know what a candle party is but I dont think I would have gone wheter I had the time or not..Thats your choice and if they want to get mad.Thats their choice.ALso I would avoid the cursing neighbor bcaz at that age yyour children are going to repeat it...LOL weird neighbors!!I dont think your a bad neighbor for wanting to protect your children from curse words,wanting privacy in YOUR home, and you dontwant trash in your mail.LOl thanks for ur response!

Some of our neighbors are friendly and some are not, we live in the country and so none of our neighbors are close, except the one behind us and he is not an easy neighbor.

Oh sorry to hear about your uneasy neighbor.I like where i live , there is an empty lot on either side of us.The lots are big enough to fit a huge house on either one.So our neigbors are a little far away from us.Its nice because its private but acessible.:] I really like my neighbors

We have all sort of neighbors, there are good an helpful, there are those who are annoying, making noise even in the middle of the night while we are already in bed, there are those who are generous. All kinds hahaha.. We are living in a subdivision and we have a lot of neighbors around. Houses in the subdivision are very close to each other. It;s not nice when your neighbors are noisy. You can't sleep at night. Dogs are barking... my goodness!! everything is there. But generally we have good neighbors.

I treat my neighbors like if they were my family. When I bake sweets for my family my neighbors also get some. My neighbors we look out for each other. This year we shared our garden vegetables, we grill out together. In the winter we help each shovel off paths and steps. I love my neighbors could not ask for better ones. I have had some that we didn't see eye to eye but not to many. I'm the one when you move in bring homemade sweets to welcome you.

For me,I just moved into my new house for less than 1 year and most of my neighbors are senior people who are raising the kids for their son/dauther,so it's not easy to make friend with them.One more reason I think~I go out for office everyday in the morning and back late,little chance to meet them`~anyway,I did have some as my badminton club members,they are not so near my house but in the same location~`

My hubby has lived in this neighborhood for 20 years, but had not gotten to know many neighbors. Then we got married 3 1/2 years ago, and I introduced myself to at least the closest ones. Then, last week, our neighborhood was without electrical power for 100 yours after Ike came through (Cincinnati!!!). We got to know more neighbors during that week than hubby has in 20 years, or I had in 3+. We all sat outside at night, since our homes were dark and hot(ter). Outside, we had a bright full moon to help guide the way and there was a slight breeze most evenings. People walked more, talked more to neighbors. We vowed that after the power was back on, we'd have to all be just as neighborly as during that week without power. And...so far, we're doing just that. It's good to be bonded with neighbors.

when we lived at our old house, we were quite good friends with our neighbour (not fred/barney/wilma/betty kind of neighbours, but close) but where we live now, we are polite to them, will chat about the house and other stuff (my daughter babysits their kids once in awhile and also, my hubby is the president of the condo corp) but we arent super close.

i have say sometimes i met the annoying neighbor,but they are not that kind of making you angry,but sometimes making a lot of noise,and generally it is fine.though they didn't appear kindness but also no hostility.so no trouble between us.indeed i had some wonderful and kind neighbour like you said,so just enjoy the friendship .

Yes, we are. We even hang out sometimes. Our landlady liked to go out with us before and she mingles with us from time to time. They are not annoying in some sense because our neighbors are very open and very nice to us.

Hmm, my old neighbourhood was ok. But now, I rarely talk to my neighbours. Should i say none?AHAHA. We just moved in less than a year ago. I don't know, they are all people with families. Occupied. Maybe I shall try when i got the chance to do so. Its good to have new friends anyway. One of my neighbour likes to on his 4wd's engine now and that. And I really really don't appreciate the smelly smoke coming out from his exhaust.

Not all of the people in my neighborhood are good neighbors. While many are peace loving, some are loud and annoying sometimes especially at night when their drinking sprees will extend till wee hours when they are celebrating birthdays. But those are not every night anyway, so we have learned to leave with it and remained at peace with all of them.

When I was living with my parents we had many neighbours. All of them are good and helpful. But there are ones who are gossiping around. In my new house where I live with my parents, our neighbors are relations. They are good and very helpful. No problem so far. I think with any neighbor your acompany should be upto the required level. Too much of relationship would not last for a long time.

I have been living in different places with new environment of my neighbors character, friend is different from my neighbors. I am not friend to them because they look at their self as high that no one can hit them up. We are not friends.
