Moving into a luxury apartment is an exciting new step in anyone’s life, but life, even with all the amenities afforded in a luxury pad, is nothing without good friends and neighbors. The trouble is, of course, how do you make them? Going door to door and introducing yourself is certainly an option but it’s hard to get to know people and form strong bonds that way. Fortunately, Harborside Village Apartments is here with a few tips on getting to know your neighbors and becoming part of a strong, caring community.
Talk to People
It might seems obvious to some, but those moving from a big city will undoubtedly be familiar with the suspicion that the only reason a stranger would want to talk is to hit on them, sell them something, or ask for directions to the nearest bus station. While it’s obviously not the best idea to wait around in the hallways or streets looking for conversation, if you find yourself riding the elevator, or see someone needing help carrying a heavy object, don’t be afraid to approach them and strike up a conversation or offer to lend a hand.
Hang Out in the Commons
Don’t spend all your free time holed up inside and expect to make friends. Instead take advantage of any communal spaces like swimming pools, athletic facilities or nearby parks. They can be great places to get work done, read, or exercise and odds are you’ll run into someone else who’s looking to make friends.
Another obvious but often overlooked way to meet new people is to attend any festivals or block events that celebrate your neighborhood or the surrounding area. It may be a little uncomfortable to go alone but it will be well worth the momentary awkwardness once you start meeting other folks and celebrating or enjoying the event together.
Join a Cultural Institution
Perhaps the best way to make new friends is to find people with common interests, and the easiest way to do that is to join and seek out groups or institutions that cater to your hobbies and interests. Whether it’s an art museum, an amateur sports team, or a book club there’s almost certainly going to be a least one local institution that will have things that interest you, and in turn help you meet others with the same interests.
