    I'm nice. It doesn't always pay off but I won't change.

    Same here! My wife and I have no friends we hang out with except one woman my wife has known all her life. And that is only a once a year gig.

    I enjoy my friends here tremendously like you @Abbey1 but in real life, I don't want any friends coming over and hanging out all day. My home time is dedicated to my wife. She is my best friend.

    That is the way it should be and it's the reason I love you dearly, @potlatch.

    I'm pretty sure I am the bad person in someone's story..............but I know I'm nice......... I won't change either.

    I hear ya! I don't do the, "come over for coffee," thing, we don't do the, "come over for dinner," thing, the only people I talk to, "hang out," with, are my older sister, my son/DIL/granddaughter.

    I don't form relationships with the neighbors, I never did with co-workers.

    I like a lot of people here and, enjoy the conversations, but, that's easy, it's not in person (I tend to be shy in person.)

    I'm happy, in my own little world.

    I think I'm a nice person, I just don't go out of my way to talk to people and, that is often precieved as, standoffish or, rude, by some.

    Same here. I don't have any "friends" here in OK.........I have some cousins in Oklahoma, but I made sure to live far enough from them so they don't just drop in unexpectedly. Thank goodness the one neighbor I know knows to text me if she needs something (and it's usually for me to keep an eye on her house while she is out of town).

    My husband and I like it exactly the way it is.

    My husband and I like it exactly the way it is.
    The other day, a lady from a street over, came by to give me a package that UPS left at her house by mistake.

    That, wasn't the problem, the problem was, I have a fully fenced yard, with a gate across the driveway that is kept closed, because of the dog.

    Well, I was down by the horses, with the dog and, I see her at the gate, reaching over to unlatch it! I look around....shit! My dog is going to see her and, he isn't friendly, so, I'm looking around and, there's the horse trailer, so, thinking very quickly, I open the door and, put him in there....then, I walked down the driveway, where she was already opening the gate.

    Ok, she was being nice and I appreciate it, but, people usually keep gates closed and latched for a reason.

    I've told delivery drivers to honk and I'll come out, if I'm home, if I don't come out, I'm not home and, the dog is inside, so, ok to come on in.
