What is the point is that this situation, while hilarious, could entirely be something you may find yourself in and need help on in the future. You can’t be buying a condo one day and then needing to sell it the next because of a crazy neighbour-dating disaster! You likely went on many a showing with your Realtor to find the condo you now live in.
You probably dropped more money than you’ve ever spent on anything in your life on it too.

There are a lot of benefits that may come from dating your neighbor.

They catch each other in the parking lot from time to time, and quick hellos turn into 35-minute conversations about life. If he has a party and doesn't invite her, it hurts.
I want to share an email that I received this week: “Hi Karyn, I am a reporter with the Toronto Star.
I’m working on a story about singles dating people in their condos and I was wondering if you might happen to know anyone who has inter-condo dated.” Hahaha.
So, I decided, with her permission (and a few identifying details changed), to share my pal's situation with you all. She'll pour a glass of wine, put a record on, and watch the sun fade over the horizon.
They met across the fence a few months ago and struck up a slow friendship. He can pop in for dinner, partake in spontaneous TV-watching, help her with that pesky kitchen sink that leaks, give her quick kisses at random times (and actually, think romantic gestures galore—she can see his bedroom window from her bedroom window).
You’ll have the benefit of walking down the hall to see your boyfriend or girlfriend if you date your neighbor. Only 34 percent of survey respondents said they’d date someone who lives an hour away, and the number only decreases as the commute lengthens.
