    if you live in a apartment or condo, are your neighbors creepy? i dont live in the "gay ghetto" part of town so my neighbors are a mish mash up of people from all ethnic backgrounds. Your horror stories?

    I have in my building:

    Two straight young guys in their apt, both white, sharing the same hallway, who slam their door, all the time, at different hours of the night and evening, in and out, in and out constantly.

    The 40 something black lady, apt adjacent, who appears to be on government assistance, she has never worked, takes care of an elderly, our bathrooms are on the same wall, i call her the "water freak", everytime i use the shower, she purposefully turns her water on so that my water temp changes like when you flush your toliet, i swear, they spend all of their time in the bathroom like they fall down or something, hitting the wall or maybe even doing laundry in the bathtub. I hear the water being used sometimes throughout the night.

    The 40 something asian guy who stays silent, i think hes a teacher, same hallway, farther down, when seen in the parking garage, he hurrys to get the elevator, first. never says anything or makes eye contact.

    The 30 something white brunett bombshell whos boyfriend is black and who is 6'5 apears to play basketball, she knows me by first name (mistake) and seems to be starved for attention when you dont say "hi" to her, she yelled at me in the parking garage in front of her boyfriend saying "im not nice", im thinking like, whatever bitch. Maybe I dont want to say anything.

    The 60 something white lady who "collects" other peoples trash and sells stuff at some thrift shop or swap meet style bargin hunting. She leaves her "debris" from her push cart in the elevator, she also pushes around a retired guy, who used to walk, now in a wheelchair, this guy leaves used Q-tips on the elevator floor, so both these people make messes in the elevator

    The 30 something couple from India.. Curry, Curry, Curry comes out their window

    This is just on my side of the building, im sure the tenants on the other side have their own quirks, its been nice living there and its rent controlled, but these weird straight people are driving me nuts, as long as ive lived there, 10yrs, havent seen anyone who might be gay, maybe its time to move.

    I haven't lived in an apartment since the 80's but there were some characters in this Palo Alto, California building:

    * On one side of me a born-again couple who wagged their fingers at anyone who wasn't "saved" yet they were unmarried and spending their nights fucking like bunnies.

    * A couple of lesbians who wrestled and grunted while throwing each other around sometimes. At first I thought one of them was injured, but no - - - she was tough!

    * A trust fund guy in his 50's who never left his apartment, nor did he have any guests (per the manager). When he left there was dried bird crap on every surface.

    * The cute blond guy and his somewhat younger "son".

    * The hot twink who lived with his mother, and he wanted to come over and hang out, but he was jailbait.

    * The 60-something old fat bitch who tried to have gay people thrown out of the building at every opportunity - - - until the night she left her window down in her Buick down in the garage under the building. Being tall, I was able to spray her dashboard, instrument panel, console and left seat with urine. She had so many enemies in the building she had no idea who the culprit was.

    I live in a quadplex. One neighbor is a sweet elderly lady who minds her own business. The other two apts are occupied by straight couples, with whom I party regularly. icon_biggrin.gif

    What an interesting collective of people you've got there.
    I live in a house, and one of the tenants next door who lives in the basement, kind of freaks me out. Mid 40's South Asian man, maybe older, bald, beer belly, and hairy back.
    Sometimes, he comes out to the backyard (metal fence, about 3feet height) in his bathrobe when I'm cutting the grass. I think he does that on purpose. I just try to not look at his direction.

    I have these (around 60 yr old) alcoholic hippies who live under me, after a year of music and singing from 11PM till 4AM and their fights, slamming the doors, slamming closet doors, yelling and even disgusting sex noises

    They are finally gonna get kicked out, I truly don't care if they end up on the streets icon_evil.gif I've warned them so many times, it drives a person crazy, I can't sleep at night and sometimes they wake me up with almost a heart attack... I'm going to party the day they leave icon_twisted.gif

    I live here for 5 years they just moved in a little over a year!

    I had way more creepers when I lived in a gay neighborhood. In fact it was getting annoying as hell. I'd be walking wolfpup normally late at night/early morning especially in summer because the days were too hot for him. And some of these guys getting out from the bars would cruise their cars through our gayborhood side streets.

    Sometimes they'd circle a few times, so every so often I'd signal them to me. They probably thought they found a late night pick up but I'd threaten them with the cops if they didn't leave the area immediately.

    I found that to be extremely disrespectful of local residents. Circling with their cars like fuckin' gay land sharks. Who the fuck stalks in a gayborhood. Like it isn't easy enough to get laid at the bars. Idiots.

    Wow, you do have some interesting people in your building!

    The only experience I've had like that was when I was in law school.
    My cousin and I shared an apt. and we did have some interesting neighbors. I remember the old guy (probably in his 50's), lived above us, who worked for the city, overweight, never friendly who would blare his TV at all hours of the night and when he went to bed, his bed would squeal in protest... you could hear it in our apt. It drove us crazy, so we got his phone number and my cousin would call him and hang up when we'd wake up at 3:00 a.m because of the TV. My cousin had "names" for people like this.

    The devil worshipper in our dorm was the worst... Tom used to call him "lurch"..... ick!

    Wow, Dan and I must have lucked out. We live on the top floor of a lowrise building. 1st and 2nd floors are offices and top floor are apartments. We have four neighbour's.
    - 1 female in her mid 20s doing her residency at the city hospital. Super cool and we do brunch.
    - 1 female also in her mid 20s who works for an intelligence bureau. Really pretty and friendly and often invites us to parties. We also do brunch with other neighbor together.
    - 1 male mid 20s who is in school, but also works odd hours. None of us see him because we work during the day but Dan claims he leaves his apartment around 10 AM and we don't ever see him at night. He is jockish looking and had a hot guy living with him at one point. We all (other 2 women) concluded he's probably straight because one girl asked if his "friend" if there was a 2nd bedroom once, and he told her that he was helping him find a place and had been crashing on his couch.

    Other than that, my neighbour's are pretty cool

    Maybe I'm missing it but they don't sound like they are "creepy" at all. It just sounds like they do things differently than you and have some annoying habits. Sometimes I judge people too when I'm in a new situation trying to make friends. I try to find people I can identify with and end up noticing how strange the world is. Or maybe how strange I am lol.

    I think you needed to go into more details about the races and possible countries of your neighbours so that we could mentally say "Indian people are so like that!", and it would help us in our assumptions about people of different races in the future.

    I don't get the problem, one neighbor slams the door, another uses a lot of water, another is silent, another is friendly, and another likes thrift shopping and selling. Nothing wrong with that, and nothing creepy about that, it's just life.

    You forgot about the one who peeks between curtains to study his neighbour's everyday behaviours to judge them based on what he can glean.

    Remember actually talking to the straight guy creeper in my apartment once. We got drunk and high, and blew off an entire afternoon, learned the old gay creeper, was a church minister or something... icon_confused.gif
    No shit.

    I dont know if this falls under 'creeper'. My across the hall neighbors in DC blasted their daily five daily Salats so loud I knew the recitations by heart within a month. Then there was an elderly couple who dressed in their Sunday best and sat in the lobby from about 7am to 6pm. The building party guy who was usually staggering around shit faced drunk at the crack of 2...PM. The group of early 20 something chicks who were trying to live out 'Sex in the City' by eye-humping everything with a penis between the ages of puberty & 70.

    Don't know my neighbors yet as I just moved into a condo but the apartment that I left was pretty nice except for the one guy (with his family) that moved in across the hall. We'd both get the local paper delivered and if there happen to be a promotional item included, he'd rip open the plastic bag and take mine. At one point there were 3 copies of the paper being delivered (not sure why), he would never pick up the third and recycle it. One day the paper had a promotional box of cereal (little single size ones) in the plastic wrapper. He opened both the two papers left (took his) and removed just the cereal. I was so pissed, not because I wanted the cereal but the fact that he ripped open the plastic and then left it on the paper. If he had taken the entire plastic bag, I would never had known. I knocked on his door and his wife said she thought they did have the cereal, returned a box to me. From then on, he would avoid me and even turn and go the other direction if he heard me coming! LOL Like I could hurt anyone...but it made me feel good icon_twisted.gif

    My apartment building is full of nice quiet people who mind their own business and don't freak out over the little things. I occasionally talk to a few of them and they are all mainly office or trade workers. Most of the building smokes pot, but nobody cares. The units are as close to soundproof as I have ever experienced. One night my neighbor did hear me banging a guy. He just gave me a gig give the next morning. Even the kids in the building are well behaved and quiet.

    There is a little noise on Friday and Saturday nights sometimes but I usually drown it out with my own noise. If you demand that everyone is silent and lives life on your schedule you might a well move into a convent or a house. It is the only place you are going to find it.

    thats interesting, although ive never lived in a gayborhood, cruising anywhere, weather driving the street, walking your dog in the park, at the store or your own building, i think that would be a "natural" habit of us gays, i wouldnt call a gay guy cruising in a gayborhood a "creeper", maybe straight gentrified people living in the same neighborhood would think its a bit creepy.

    Maybe i should change "creeper" to "quirky", doesnt change the fact that these quirky straight people bug me, sometimes on purpose, 70% of people in los angeles, Rent, so there is really no way of getting around it unless i win the lottery and can buy my own home, i dont mind home neighbors saying hey when cutting lawns, but communal living is different, if your in a uncomfortable place, my guess that is why the classic gayborhoods grew and attracted the gay communitys, The big complaint now from what i read is Gentrification of straight people into the gayborhoods, WeHo has been experiencing this for a few years now, evidence by the amount of baby walking strollers by straight couples, but "Gentrification" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentrification should be another forum hot topic.

    My building is like the house from American Horror Story Season 1. It was apparently quite the happening hotel in the teens and '20s. There are these odd sculptures of cherubs and animals about. There used to be switchboard girls where the recycling center is now.

    The thing is, it's so eerily quiet. I'll see another tenant once, and then never again, like they're shades wandering the hallways.
