I hear what you are saying Brulen, but developing relationships with those around you now may prove critical at some future point. No man is an island unto himself (or something like that). Fortunately for me, I like having people stop by to say hello, or doing the same myself. I regularly wander across the road to visit or wander next door to say hi. I lend a hand as and where I can without being asked. If I go for a walk and someone is out in their yard, I’ll stop and introduce myself if I don’t already know them, and its never hard to find something in common with people to talk about.
