Neighbor questions-How much is too much?
posted by pakora1 to Human Relations (26 answers total)
We moved in our house last year and now have a new neighbor (family) almost a month back. On his first introduction with my husband he mentioned that our porch light at night is too bright for him and my husband agreed to remove it. This leaves our entire house yard in darkness something I am not comfortable as we are on a dead end street.
On a day to day basis we don't have much contact with them and frankly the rest of the family hasn't been too friendly to us. (nothing wrong there, but there have been no attempts at introduction even though we have passed each other)
Trying to figure out what is the fine line between being good neighbors and where do you draw the line, in your experience? Do you feel that you absolutely have to have cordial relationships with your neigbor?
