how do you meet the neighbors?
Hi there! I was just wondering some good ways to meet the neighbors. I've been in my first apartment for two months now, and I don't know anyone yet. I'm assuming that it's because we all work. I see lots of cars at the complex, so I know I am not the only one who lives here. I think it would be great if I could meet some of my neighbors. We could go for walks together around the complex, go to the grocery store, share meals (cooking for one person is too much!), take care of each others' cats if one of us is away... check to see if we left our oven on. I know, you can do that with friends too, but it would be so convenient to be friends with people that live right here. I think people just aren't as friendly as they used to be in the good old days. I had actually considered hosting an "open apartment" one evening. Prepare some snacks and put a flyer up at the mail boxes to do a meet and greet. Just not sure who would show up, and I don't know if I want "everyone" knowing whats in my apartment. Is there an online community where people go from different complexes to post that they are looking for their neighbors too? How do you meet yours? Thanks!
