    I liked it better when all the houses were for sale. People moved in the house across the street which has been empty for over a year, and it seems like they brought everyone they know over tonight!!!

    Too much people around my house, moving around making noise, crowding up the street with their cars, walking up and down the road making every dog bark, [​IMG] I'm gonna go crazy!

    Lots of people this close to my space makes me wanna [​IMG]

    We picked this house mostly because of the price and because the neighborhood was nice and QUIET. It's a good town, close to things, country enough for me, a pretty good balance but the next house is gonna be as far out in the country as we can reasonably commute!!

    I know what you mean. I never want to go back to living in close quarters with other humans. Makes me clausdrophobic!

    Ooo. I completely sympathize! Some of us just are not made for city/town living![​IMG]

    I'm with you. My g-grandma lived in town where houses are like 100 ft apart everywhere. I couldn't ever sleep at night. It seemed scary and no privacy.

    I've always lived out in the country and do now. I could walk around outside naked and no one would know [​IMG] I couldn't live in the city.

    I feel the same way, my son who was homeschooled and got his AA at the community college here when he only 18 is in his first semester away from home at school and living in the dorm can't wait to get back home and have some space.

    Funny thing is, when I lived in an apartment it didn't bother me as much, but this half-way-in-between stuff is hard to adjust to. When we lived on a busy highway traffic was so constant I could ignore it. Now I notice everytime anything moves

    I was born in the City.... but have lived in the Country most of my adult life... whenever I go back "home" to visit family... I can't wait to get back to the peace and quiet...... could never ever live in the City again..... added bonus... my neighbours are two big fields away... Bliss as one is the neighbour from hell.... who has just sold up... hopefully we will get someone more pleasant who moves in... (((Praying))))

    I can relate. I grew up in a small town in OK and couldn't wait to leave. Lived in Tulsa for a few years. I lived 6 miles from work and spent 45min in traffic each way.

    I moved to a very rural part of ND 12yrs ago. Im now married and live on a farm. I love it. No neighbors for miles, can walk outside in my jammies, do what I want, when I want and there is no one to complain!
