Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but I have never just gone up to someone’s house to introduce myself and no one has ever come to mine. We sort of just talk when we are both outside which usually ends in us standing at the fence and getting to know each other.

Personally I don’t want anyone just popping over to my house. Then I have to ninja crawl around and make sure you aren’t a mass murderer or anything and how awkward is it to get caught peeking out of the blinds at someone? Pretty awkward, trust me. I say just wait until you catch them already outside and make it a point to compliment their landscaping or something. Then you can introduce yourself and chat for a bit. After that wave at them any time you are both outside (then again, in my town you wave at everyone, so I don’t know if that is normal haha)

We have just met the neighbors while we’re both outside doing things. When new neighbors moved in next door, we happened to be outside working on the yard while they were moving in, so it was a good time to meet them.

Don’t worry about it too much, meeting the new neighbors just happens in time 🙂
