What is the latest you would knock on someones door?

I had a neighbor with two little ones in tow knock on my door at 8 at night. I was so glad to meet someone in my neighborhood but I hope that it is not a regular thing. Obviously close acquaintances would be different or emergencies. But really what is the latest you would knock on a neighbors door to introduce yourself?

  • Probably between 6:30 and 7...after dinner but before everyone starts winding down for the night

  • Probably 7, maybe 7:30 in the summer months. Especially if I knew they had little ones. Most likely though I would do it in the afternoon.

  • I'd do it in the afternoon. I know the times I've moved, evening usually meant late dinners and being exhausted - not up to being polite and friendly towards people when I'm dead on my feet.

  • I would probably wait until I saw them out and about to introduce myself different people have different schudules some people work during the day and go to bed early and then some work at night and sleep during the day. so, now a days it is hard to catch anyone at the right time. I would just wait until the right time presented it self.

  • Nothing after 5 if I don't know them. 5 is usually when SO comes home from work or whatever and I deem anytime after that "family time"

  • A stranger? Not after 7:30. Someone I knew not after 9.

  • I never visit anyone after 5pm just to be respectful unless they know ahead of time.
