How to look for someone to date in your neighborhood?

You may find some very datable people in your own neighborhood. Familiarity breeds comfort, and feeling safe and making the other person equally comfortable are important. So somebody you frequently run into or who knows the people you know works for both of you.
Dating a neighbor has some advantages:
  • You may already be acquainted with each other, and therefore, the situation isn’t as scary as approaching or being approached by a stranger — and making somebody feel safe is a priority in this exercise.
  • You probably run into the person often, giving you plenty of opportunities to take the bull by the horns (so to speak).
  • You probably know many of the same people. The only reservation about dating someone in your neighborhood is that you should be careful about next-door neighbors. If the thing doesn’t work out, the possibilities of being spied on increase greatly. Even if they don’t own binoculars, the “bump intos” could feel uncomfortable, awkward, painful, or embarrassing.
