Seven Ways to Make Friends with Your New Neighbors


At last, you are moving in to your new home. You are more than excited because you feel like you are also moving forward to a new, bright life. You started your day by decorating your new home with your equally new furniture and home accessories. In fact, you have spent two and a half days to complete everything. What is more important to you, though, is that you and your family are finally settled. But, you are forgetting something – what about the neighborhood? Coming along with your new home is a new community, where you are currently a total stranger. As a new arrival, it is a best gesture if you will be the one to approach them, introduce yourself and offer friendship. However, if you have no idea what are the best ways to do this, consider this list:

Invite them to your housewarming party.
Being in your new home gives you the opportunity to host a housewarming party. Instead of inviting just your friends and relatives, invite also your new neighbors. In this way, you are already extending your family to them.

Offer them your food.
Grill barbecue in your front yard. Set a table for you and your family. But, make sure you have aplenty of barbecue, so when you see neighbors around, you will be able to offer each of them with a stick of barbeque. Just a stick, but it will mark a new beginning of friendship.

Propose a handshake to people you meet along the neighborhood.
When you are walking along the area, offer a handshake to people outside of their homes. Introduce yourself and your family. This gesture will enable them to understand that you are opening your doors to them.

Attend community events.
If you receive invitation for a community event, do not have a second thought in attending. Grace the occasion. In this way, you will be introduced to majority of your neighbors. You can easily make friends with them.

Join community organizations.
Involve yourself in community organizations. By becoming a member of one or two organizations, you will engage in activities that will require your regular attendance; hence, it will be too soon that you will gain friends.

Offer your help to those who are in need.
In time of emergencies, your neighbors, aside from your house members, are the closest to you. If you feel like they need your help, offer them one. For instance, if one of them requires assistance in gardening, offer your help.

Take a walk.
Each morning, try to take a walk, along with your family, if possible. By seeing you every day, they will take notice of you and they will offer a smile. It will become the start of a new life in the neighborhood.

By following one if not all of these tips, you will realize, meeting and making friends with your new neighbors is not a difficult task to do. In fact, it is an enjoyable and a funny thing to look back on after you have already tied your friendship with them.
