Hi all I have not been on for a while. medical problems. I have also been enjoying the weather. but something happened the other day and has really been bothering me. I was wondering if anyone would feel the same way I do? so here goes. I have lived in my house for 8 years. We bought the house my husband grew up in because it was a great neighborhood for him to grow up in and we wanted the same for our 2 boys. Well as I said I have lived here for 8 years and have never been invited to sit down or walk over to any of the neighbors houses, we have always smiled and said hi to each other but that was all. Well there is this girl that moved in not even 2 yrs ago. and yesterday the neighbor across the street brought her over a bucket of strawberries and invited her over. they gave her the grand tour of there house and property and sat with her in there yard and talked for almost 2 hours!!! It has really made me feel horrible. I have never done anything to these people and I am treated as a non entitie in my neighborhood. I even told my husband I want to move. I have very few friends because I am not able to go very often far from the house due to my medical condition. Do you think I am over reackting to this? or would you feel the same?

I'm sorry u have medical problems, i do to so i know how that is. I would feel the same way u do if i had not been made to feel more welcome in the neighborhood. I don't guess i'd go to the trouble of moving but would not be happy where i was. WHY DON'T U FIX SOME COFFEE OR TEA & INVITE THEM OVER. Maybe that would break the ice. THEY MAY KNOW U AREN'T WELL & JUST DON'T WANT TO BOTHER U. gIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT & see what happens from there. GOOD LUCK.

You could invite them over. But me I wouldnt care. Neighbors have to much gossip. I like my private time and my personal life to be mine. My one neighbor talks to us and that is okay. But when im outside trying to get stuff done he wants to come over and talk and I cant get anything done. They also seem to know a lot of what we are doing. I like my privacy. My other neighbors are like we are private. My other neighbors are my in laws. But invite them over and see if they accept. If not dont worry about them. Maybe they like the girl because they get more gossip news out of her. Maybe they think because of your medical condition your not up for the company. Just give it a try and see what happens. If not thats no reason to want to move. Again maybe the other girls life they can gossip about.

How about inviting your neighbors over? Make an extra effort to talk to them and get to know them. I don't want to sound harsh but I sounds like you wear your feelings on your sleeves too much. I have the same problem sometimes also. Just make an extra effort. Have a BBQ and invite some neighbors over or something. I can think of a lot of worse reasons to move. Good Luck.
