Is any of your neighbour very close friend to you?

In my earlier place, which was office quarters, all of us used to be very friendly with each other, share sweets on festivals and occasions and talk with each other when we meet outside and it was a healthy atmosphere. But in the present place, though I am friendly with them, they keep to themselves, gossip a lot, interested to know what is happening in other's houses and then have discussion on it. The moment you try to talk to them, immediately they will try to extract information from you as to where your daughter has gone yesterday, who came to your house etc. I feel sick to talk to them and I too keep a distance. Do you have any close friend in your neighbourhood?

Hello Buchi_bulla. Now we live in apartments and we seldom talk to each other in our building. It is only like nodding to each other when we see each other on the stairs. The relationship between each other seems distant. But in the nineties when we were still living in old houses where there were many families living together, the neighborhood relationship was different and more complicated with some good neighbors and some nosy ones. The living quarters, both in the old way or the current way, have two sides, good and bad. But anyway, our current neighbors are friendly to each other. Enjoy yourself, friend.

Yes, of course. I am always having a good relationship with my neighbourhood. In fact, in my country, there is a well-known saying that A neighbor that is near is better than a brother far off. That is to say, compared with the distant relatives, your near neighbourhood are better. So, it is necessary for people to keep friendly with their neighbourhood other than the distant relatives. You can enjoy a better life if you have a good relationship with your neighbourhood.

I have good neighbors who I live beside with but they are not very close to me as I can say them like my close friends.Yea but they are good.Recently I talked with my neighbor and that was the first time I talked a lot with her and I came to know more about her.She is a good person. Actually I too don't like interacting with people. So I stay away from them as long as possible. I feel really weird and strange talking to people I don't know.So frankly speaking I don't have any close friend of mine in my neighborhood.

Where I live now, there are a lot of students who move right after they are finished going to school. Because the location is good for me, I have lived here for 7 years, and don`t plan on moving anytime soon. Where I grew up, on the other hand, neighbours were close friends, because everyone had lived there for so long. We all knew eachother.
