  • I know them very well.They will do anything for me "My neighbours are like my blood relations"
  • I know one lady that lived in my block of units (there are four units) really well, but she has just moved into a nursing home (I've been to see her a couple of times, but she is really in decline now, sadly). Otherwise, all I know about my neighbours is that they annoy me (noisy dogs, too many cars, loud parties, etc).
  • Only well enough to say "hello" to when I run into them in the hallway. (I live in an apartment building).
  • I've lived in the same place for 19 years, I either played with my neighbours or their children as a child. I used to play in this house with the previous owner's daughters. I live about a mile away from where I spent most of my childhood. I would say I know all my neighbours very well but I do know them all as close friends. We all look out for each other's homes and children. We've all been equally guilty of letting the tires down of the guy with psychiatric problems who lives up the hill who kamakazees in his car past our playing children when he's very poorly. I went to school with him and most of us feel like we're doing him a favour; his parents know we do it and wish to the heavens that they hadn't bought him a car. In 19 years we've seen street parties, births, deaths and marriages and I think I'm going to miss them all horribly when I move.
  • I have great neighbors but we are not really socially involved. One guy has an anger problem and I have seen the cops over there a few times but not lately. Most of us enjoy our privacy but would help each other if needed.
  • Well enough to know I don't like them.
  • Well, the thing is they speak spanish. I try, but am terrible. I would know them pretty well, if I did.
  • Very well. My neighborhood is fantastic. I live on a dead end street with oodles of kids and wonderful neighbors. The kind that come out to help when one of us is working outside. It become a "neighborhood project". Kind of reminds me of the days of the pilgrims like the barn raising events they had. Everyone knows everyone and we all help each other. It's great!
  • They are my husband's sister and brother-in-law and their son's family too. And across the road is his niece. We know them very well:-)
  • I don't know them... only when they get drunk and coked out enough to come and yell at me and my friends, and try to literally pick fights with us... he's like 30 and I'm an 18 yr. old girl... sheesh!
  • Yup. They are from Guyana, and they hate the snow. The husband has a wicked bar in his basement and we swap home improvement tips from time to time.
  • I know that they have 10,000 cars and park all over the damn street! but that's about it!
  • Nope not at all, i just know that the old woman makes cakes.
  • yea i used to go into her back yard all the time when i was little and take walks with her around my neighborhood. and another one that lives behind me is very fun we used to have water wars across the fence when i was in elementary school too.
  • Nope..most of them in my apartment complex are pricks and don't even bother to say Hi. Only one cool family near me that minds their own business.
  • Yes, to an extent. We just moved. My old one's were, similar to other accounts, pricks. One suburb away and all my neighbours are seemingly, well, neighbourly.
  • We know the neighbors next to us pretty well. We have hung out with them on many occasions. The ones across the street we have spoken to a few times. The neighbors on the other side of us, we don't know well at all. All we know is that they have a very good stereo system, and seem to listen to it very loud late nights.
  • i don't.....i've introduced myself to the couple across the street and we wave but that's about it! we live in a cove in a big neighborhood and we all just kinda "wave".......we've had some creepy people move into a house @ the end of the cove recently....there are always 6-7 cars there and people come-and-go at all times of the day and night~i'm convinced they are drug dealers hiding in suburbea....hahahaha
  • mine are ok, the ones across from me are like late 40's & have kids that are preteeny and a teenager, ugh! u can imagine my dilemma, and i'm 25...but the others next 2 me are cool, since they are around my age, they are 26 & 24...we say here and there and convo about things that neighbors convo about, which is ummm... wow, nothing, lol
  • No I don't. They speak Spanish and I don't, in fact everyone in my neighborhood speaks Spanish, I kinda feel like I am out in left field.
  • use to know everyone that lived around us since the real estate market got cooky no i dont know any of my neighbors its like the friendly relaxed people moved and the people that have nothing better to do than wine, bitch, and moan appeared its a shame once a community of great people living and laughing together has been tainted by negative thoughts and misleading information HOME OWNER ASSOCIATION'S are out of control
  • I live in the country, so my neighbor is about 1/4 miles away. The lady is very nisy and my other neighbor is my mother. So I've known one for 35 yrs and the other for 10 yrs... I dont have either one of them, but wish my mother would mind her own business some times.. We own our own home on her land, so its not that easy to move...
  • kinda well....one creeps me the hell out.
  • Pretty well.... more than they know me.
  • Yes, I know all of my neighbors.
  • I live on a dead end road. Everybody knows everything about everybody else on this street.
  • Only some of them. And I don't want to know them. They're so annoying because they're so noisy.
  • I live in a condo. I got to know 2 of them really well and both have moved away recently..sigh. But yes, I like to have a passing relationship at least. Great for emergencies & just general comfort zone.
  • Yes, I know about 6 or 7 of them right around our home/area.
  • No. I'm a very private person.
  • I've had a couple of them over for dinner, (NEVER home parties to buy something though) otherwise I try not to bother them too much. Since we all have to live here, it's best NOT to be in/or know each other's business. It would be uncomfortable for us all.
  • We've got the state woods on 2 sides of us. And we've got my husband's sister and BIL next door, there's a niece down across the road. Other than that, there are 2 vacation homes rarely occupied. We all know each other very well:-)
  • Our neighborhood is extremely close. There are several families here that have bought up a bunch of the houses so they can all live close together. They are all really friendly and kind people and they have really made us part of the group. When our child was sick, they brought us groceries and meals, taught me to sew to help with the budget, put us on the prayer list at their churches and even brought Christmas presents for our daughter as they knew we wouldn't be able to do much for her with all the medical bills. In the evenings in the warm months we tend to gather and visit on one anothers lawns and porches. Its a really nice place to live.
  • Too well! I know all their personal problems!
  • Not at all and it is a shame
  • I don't talk to anyone on my street only if they want to talk to me then i will talk to them!
  • they moved in recently so I dont know them that well :)
  • Im afraid my only neighbours are my ex-parents in-law, not the best choice!
  • We hates them, we do.
  • Not well at all. I like it that way.
  • I make it a point to know all those around me.
  • i don't...as long as they don't bother me, i don't bother them.
  • Most of them. +
  • Yes, well enough to use their cellar in case of a tornado.
  • Yes 2 familys and working on the others this summer. Thanks for reminding me. A BB-Q would be great for an invite. +5 for the questions.
  • No but it's ok, cause they don't know me either
  • i sure do but doesnt mean i like them
  • I know a few of them.
  • Three out of the five .... yes.
  • Not really.
  • Yes, I know them quite well. They're nice.
  • The people on the north side have been there about 10 years, but they stay on their side of the fence and I sat on mine. The south side is a home that was broken up into 4 rental units. People are in and out on an average of every 6 months, so I don't get to know them. The people across the street I know enough about so that I DON'T want to know them!
