The word “apartment” comes from the Italian “appartamento” meaning “to separate”. How do you build good relationships with people that are meant-to-be-apart?
- Have a common area
This is a comfortable place where anyone in the building can hang out and expect to see others, or just a good place to get out for a minute.
- Do an Activity
Who doesn’t like meeting new people while playing a board game, movie night or making some paintings together and displaying them in the building.
- Beauty Budget
Ok this one you need some money from the landlord. But even without that anyone can make a point to plant something outside, put up something seasonal or even pick up some garbage.
If you don’t rush inside and its anywhere near rush hour chances are you’ll meet someone and you can talk about planning the above two!
