I have always been a social butterfly and I have always welcomed new neighbors with a plate of fresh baked cookies, I have done the same to introduce myself when I am the new one in the neighborhood too. I have made wonderful long time friendships that are priceless!! you should try it!
I dont know.. I tend to be really shy but I have a neighbor who has kids close to my daughters age & it sucks to know we are so close & our kids could play a lot together (we are both sahm's!) but don't since we have never talked before..
*we have lived here for about 10 yrs & barely know our neighbors.. they have lived here for about 2 yrs.
