One of my earliest memories is attending a kids’ disco at age 9. At the start of the evening, the girls were pressed anxiously against one wall and the boys stood nervously against the opposite wall. Everyone wanted to come into the middle and dance together, but we were all too shy to be the first one to step forward. Eventually, encouraged by each other, we got a little more confident, edging forward until the two groups finally met. The rest is dance history.

Isn’t reaching out to our neighbors for the first time a similar situation? We’re social creatures. We generally like knowing our neighbors and coming together is usually fun. Yet, who among us wants to be the first to step forward, to experience that nervous feeling of putting yourself before your neighbors face to face, not knowing what reaction you’ll get?

Starting is always the most difficult part. I’ve been there: Standing on a stranger’s doorstep on a chilly night, nervously ringing the bell, hoping that the answer won't be hostile. But, as I’ve discovered from my early doorbell ringings at age 8, the majority of neighbors are happy to open their doors to good intentions.

Moving is a stressful life event in more ways than one, and making new friends is one of the scariest parts of a big relocation. When I moved across the country from Iowa to Oregon, my first big scare was when I realized I didn’t have my best friends to lean on anymore– I was all alone (cue sad music).

What I came to realize, though, is that there really are a lot of easy ways to meet new people in your neighborhood, whether you’ve just moved or you’re simply looking for some new friends to hang out with– it just takes courage, determination, and a few motivational pep talks in the mirror. Here’s how to meet new people in your neighborhood...

The Disadvantages of Dating Your Neighbor

Do you really want to feel like a criminal on your own turf if things go bust?

Dating a neighbor can be tricky. While there are advantages to dating someone who lives within such close proximity, a certain amount of risk is involved. If and when things go sour, avoiding the other person will be difficult.

When the Relationship Goes Bad, There’s Nowhere to Hide

So before you do something rash tonight ask yourself these five questions:
1. Do you really want to worry about how you look every time you leave the house?
2. Do you really like your alone time?
3. Do you really want to see them with somebody else?
4. Do you really want them to see you with (or hear about you being with) someone else?
5. Do you really want to feel like a criminal on your own turf if things go bust?

Flirting With a Neighbor

Flirting with a neighbor can be easy. After all, the two of you are going to come in contact with each other in a number of settings that naturally lend themselves to chatting and bantering. You can make her laugh and make her smile, engage in more challenging flirtation and move things into a more overtly sexual realm. You might be uncomfortable doing this because she’s your neighbor, but here’s the thing: If you start with funny and playful, by the time you escalate to something more sexual, you two are already going to have established a rapport.

The girl next door. It has a different meaning when you’re all grown up and living on your own. Still, you might find that you’ve met a girl next door (or down the hall as the case may be) that you want to pursue something with. There are risks there, but the rewards might outweigh that. If you decide that you want to pursue something, The Art of Charm is in your corner to help you make it happen.

How to Become Friends With Your Neighbors

Very few of us actually take the time to meet our neighbors but it is one of the best ways to make new friends. After all, you live by them, you see them pretty much every day, and you share a love of your city and state. Why not become friends with your neighbors?

While the obvious solution toward meeting your neighbor might be to invite them to dinner at your place, sometimes it's more comfortable for everyone to meet out the first time.

This gives you something else to talk about during your first visit hanging out together.

Is My Hot Neighbor Flirting with Me?

I just made my first big move to a new city and as I was moving in, I met my (super attractive) next door neighbor. There's no question I'm attracted to him, but I thought he was just being nice introducing himself.

Yesterday he came over and asked if I had a spare quarter for the washing machine (men's version of asking for sugar?). I gave him one and he gave me change. He also asked my name again, and was smiling and I think flirting a little bit?

It wasn't until after he left that I wondered what the odds were that he actually needed another quarter. I should point out he's got a roommate too so why would he need to go directly to the new girl to get a quarter (there are 4 apartments on the floor of my building)?

Thoughts on whether he's just being friendly or trying to be flirty?

Meet the Neighbors: Why it's Smart to Make the Effort

It’s a good idea to get to know your apartment neighbors — whether you really want to or not!

Whether you are full-on friendly or super-shy, you should make the effort to meet at least two or three of your apartment neighbors.

The big bonus of having cool apartment neighbors is that you instantly get a bunch of built-in friends. Planning a movie night, supper club or walking group is a piece of cake when you have pals just steps away. (No one will ever complain about your place being too far!) Remember those BFFs from your college dorm? Neighbors can be just like those buddies, if you choose your neighbor-friends wisely and then make an appropriate effort.

Tips for Meeting New People in Your Apartment Community

Moving into a new apartment can be very exciting (especially if you are moving out for the first time or upgrading your living quarters). However, it can also be difficult to get acclimated to your new living situation. The best thing you can do to make yourself feel at home is to make friends with the people living around you.

When you are friendly with your neighbors, not only will you have people to socialize with when you get bored, but you will also have a more pleasant time should a problem arise. Since you all live in close quarters to each other, you may as well get along. But how do you go about meeting the people in your complex?

Ways to Meet People at Your Apartment

There's no opportunity to meet people at your new apartment complex that's better than the week you move in. This is the time when you should really put your best social self forward if you are interested in establishing neighborly friendships within your new community.

After a week or two, it will be awkward to suddenly introduce yourself to the neighbor you've been ignoring at the mailbox or have passed a couple times while walking to the parking lot. So get started on the right foot. All you really need to say is "Hi! I’m so-and-so. I just moved in here."

And if you can't do that, there is always Neighborly Friends, to help get you started!! :)
