- Wedding: September 2014 - Lodge
We moved into our house about 3 1/2 weeks ago. Not ONE of our neighbors has introduced themselves to us. I see them outside doing yard work a lot, when I come home from work many of them are mowing, weeding, washing windows etc. I will usually wave as I pull into my driveway but other than looking at me and then quickly looking away I get no response from any of them. WTH! My FI says he gets the same reaction.
I said to him that maybe we should introduce ourselves to them and he says “Apparently they don’t want to get to know us. I’m not introducing myself to them.” I mean I’d feel awkward too after I’m trying to be somewhat friendly but is that weird behavior?
I don’t want to sound ignorant or anything either, but 2 of our neighbors (the neighbors next door who is the brother to the people we bought from and the neighbors across the street) are Bosnian, it is a cultural thing to not introduce yourself to your neighbors? But then also we have Asian, African American and even Caucasian neighbors and none of them introduce themselves either so I’m just at a loss. Did we move into a snobby neighborhood?
