Get To Know Your Neighbors
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Did some new people move in next door? Who are they? What are they into? If you do not know your neighbors, you should get to know them.

One reason why you should get acquainted is because you need to know whether they are people to spend time with or people to avoid. If they are friendly, quiet people who have good jobs and a desire to succeed, they are most likely good people. Once you get to know them, it would be a good idea to spend some time together. Consider having them over for dinner, for example. You may find that you have something in common with them.

You might learn, for example, that your neighbors like to run. If you also like to run, you could invite them to join you. By running together, you could motivate each other. In addition to added motivation, running together would provide added safety. Along with safety and recreation, there is another reason to get to know your neighbors. If you are a business owner, they could help your business.

For example, if you sell cosmetics, and your neighbor is needing an item such as mascara or lipstick, she could come to you for the item she wants. By doing business with you, she would have someone nearby to go to for the items she needs. You would also be able to save money by avoiding having to mail her items to her.

If you are a blogger, tell your neighbor about your blog. Give her the website, and tell her some of the topics that you write about. She might then look you up online and read your articles, which will help you to earn money. Learning that you have good neighbors can be a wonderful experience for everyone. People do not always get good neighbors, however.

Sometimes, neighbors turn out to be bad. They might be into drugs or other illegal acivities, for example. These are individuals that you would not want to associate with, because they could get you into trouble. Do not be rude to them, however. Smile, wave, say 'hi', and then go on with your day.

Neighbors can enrich your life. They can introduce you to many wonderful things that you do not know about, and they can help you to learn more about yourself. Get to know your neighbors, and see what you might learn.

Hi. I think we spend far too little time with our neighbors. It's almost like when we get home we want to barricade ourselves behind our doors and take a deep breath. Wonder what that says about our society. Thanks for this.
