|Personally, I never bothered with the neighbors. I always have my own life, and they theirs.|
It's just the way it is. I used to wonder what was wrong with me, but I got tired of doing that. Now there's school, work, and sporting events where we meet friends. Our home is our castle surrounded by our imaginary mote. We leave the neighbors alone, and (for the most part) they leave us alone. The only way for us to change that would be to find a new neighborhood. In the mean time, I enjoy our privacy at home.
