  • I will never do the friendship with a neighbor again. Kids started off playing with each other. Me and her both stay at home mothers so we had a lot in common. So we became good friends. Lets just say I almost ended up in jail because of her. She had a boyfriend while her husband was deployed. I was hanging out with her one night and she asked me to go to the store with her so I said okay. Needless to say, we ended up at her mans house. She convinced me to just ride with her. So we get up over there and she found another girl at his house. they get into it, she stabs him. I was in shocked by the whole situation. Lets just say we both ended up at the police station. she got arrested, i got sent home. I had nothing to do with it.Her husband had to come off deployment to bail her out. Wrong place, wrong people, wrong time. they ended up moving away. Now I keep to myself and my family.People are just too crazy now days.

  • It takes some getting used too, but with the right sense of community it is truly wonderful.

  • We are all friendly with one another. We live on a nice quiet cul-de-sac with 2 acre properties so nobody is really on top of one another. We really like our neighborhood:)

  • Most of them stay in their houses. On one side we have a Hispanic family whose youngest is about 10-12 years older than my oldest(she will start kindergarten this fall). They don't speak English at home and we can barely understand them. On the other side we have renters that moved in a few months ago and will be gone in about a year and a half. We have talked several times and our kids have played some, but we are not close by any means.

  • My mom lives 3 miles away. We're obviously not neighbors, but we're closer than most people I know. I don't know anyone in my actual neighborhood.

  • I dont have any neighbors we live in the country and every one lives far frome each other but some parts of the country area isnt all like this just where we live. Its like 5-8 miles to the stores.

  • I now live in my parents apartment complex along with 30+ college kids, my sister + 3 kids, my mom & dad, then my other sister & husband + 2 kids!

    I love it! We wanted to move here! My two sisters, parents & I all share a backyard together! Its huge full of toys, swimming pool, gardens.... you name it we have it! Talk of a zipline are starting for this summer, how much fun would that be!

    I however, would not like this set up if my parents did not live here & own all of the buildings & property. But since they do we simply love it! In our other place we had a yard but it was small & very close to many others, we were friends with every single one of them & they all had children all girls even! So we have gotten lucky thus far since having our daughter! Well except the 10months we lived in the city that was scary for sure!

  • Yep, I get along with all of them. One neighbor is a bit strange but still nice. The others are super friendly and helpful!
