@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  I used to, when I lived in an apartment. I always wondered if I could make a new friend with the person, whether they were huge jerks, or just really uptight. I once had this really uptight neighbor that would bang on my door any time my stereo was put on. The sound could be on level 3, and she’d still complain. Meanwhile, she had a treadmill, and would RATTLE my ENTIRE apartment at 7:30–8:30 every Saturday. Some of us like to sleep in!

I do, since I’ve lived here we’ve had 6 different upstairs neighbors, some absolutely awful and some that we can’t hear at all.

The worst was when 4 adults, a baby, and a large dog were up there. In a one bedroom apartment.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  lol you are nervouse about alot!!! we live in an apartment and the 2 times we have gotten neighbors we have made it a point to go introduce ourselves. Our son plays with kids in our hallways and we like to “warn” them that sometimes when they play dinosaur it gets a little loud lol.

Im sure they do backgroud checks so you should be fine!

No not really. I guess where I live now we have new next door neighbours all the time as it’s a student flat. They’ve all been nice. My 2 downstairs neighbours I kind of wish would move though….but it’s highly unlikely they will any time soon.

when I lived in apartments I was always concerned when new neighbors moved in.

I always lived on the top floor end unit so I had to worry about as few neighbors as possible.  I loved it when one of the next door units was empty!

Hopefully they are good and quiet neighbors

Considering I never talk to my neighbours, I don’t really care much about whos moving in and out of the building.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:   Yeah it was almost as fun as the alcoholic and heroine addict who live across the hall. Can you tell I live in a real classy place? Ha..

I used to get nervous when I got new neighbors. I’ve had great ones and I’ve had TERRIBLE ones. Apartment living is not something I miss, altho now we have a townhouse and it’s really just like “bigger” apartment living, if that makes sense. Neighbors are still very close and I’d probably panic if someone different moved in beside us.
