Everyone wants to have a good relationship with their neighbors, but it can be difficult to make the first steps and establish a connection. Whether you are moving into a new apartment or have been a part of your community for years, we all need a little help breaking the ice with our neighbors. Continue reading for a few tips for getting to know your apartment neighbors!
The first step to making a relationship with anyone is to introduce yourself! Smile at your neighbors in the hallways and greet everyone with a wave or handshake. We are all in such a hurry that we overlook this step- but it just takes a few minutes to start a friendship! Ask a few questions to get to know them, and maybe exchange numbers if you feel comfortable doing so. Having a good relationship with your neighbors involves being able to text or call with any issues or help you may need.
Many people communicate via social media, and it can be a great way to reach out to new friends. Use an apartment community app such as NextDoor, or simply send a friend request on Facebook or Instagram. The Facebook page for your apartment is often a great place to make friends, as people can post photos or ideas for the community.
Go To Events
Another way to meet your neighbors in-person is to go to as many events as possible! Many apartment complexes put on their own events for movie nights, activities, holiday competitions, and more. There may also be a social night on the schedule, which is perfect for meeting new neighbors from all around the community! You are sure to find someone that you share a common interest with, and may find a new friend to go to a yoga class with or to watch a TV show one night a week. If your apartment allows pets, you may even find a neighbor to join you and your dog on a walk or a trip to the park.
