Do you know your neighbors and talk to them? Only people we know are some of the residents that live in the building we do. May sound strange, but since we've told the people that we know in our building where we are moving to, they haven't been that friendly with us. Wife and I are friendly people, but it gets old waving at someone that drives past us here and people not waving back. We can be friendly towards someone we meet at restaurant, but here, people are truly shocked that we will even talk to them. Strange, but I think the amount of crime here has a lot to do with being "friendly" here. Actually, it can be very hard being friendly (in person) to folks that have absolutely nothing in common with you. I think this "friendliness" is what I really miss about "small town living".
