Re: How to ask out a neighbour?
Yeeaaaa... there is seriously no way that would not come across as creepy lol. I know in your mind you think it's a good idea, but that's because you know yourself. She doesn't.
Replace yourself with a random guy on the street that you've never met. That's how she'll see you. If she gets a letter asking her out at her HOME she will feel very much invaded by someone she doesn't even know, let alone what they look like. And don't even think writing in the letter "Oh hope this isn't creepy. I'm not a stalker or anything" will lighten the blow. It'll make it worse. Much worse. And don't add a photo either. I'm grinding my teeth as I imagine all this.
It's best to listen to your friends and attempt a random "bump into her" kind of deal. If you cannot arrange that then you have to let it go. I mean, she's your neighbor right? What's the rush.
P.S. I know you say you won't be sad if she rejects you. I'll save you the trouble and tell you that she will. So might as well spare yourself.
