Reddit, Tell Me Where I Went Wrong AITA for Repairing My Neighbor's House? My neighbor (32F) is not speaking to me (44M) because I made some repairs to her home while she was out of town. These were mostly exterior and relatively minor (clearing debris, replacing deck boards, adding a utility sink, installing a rain cap), but I did climb onto her roof. She says I was out of line by not asking permission and that she no longer trusts my judgment. We live two streets away from each other in a small neighborhood of old houses.

I would like more, but she is a relatively new widow and single parent to a four-year-old boy and doesn't have the capacity right now. She is seriously my ideal woman, though, and I am willing to wait. I am not the most attractive guy and never thought I'd interest a person of her caliber. We've gone out a few times when her mom was watching her son or if there was a “Parents' Night Out” at his daycare, but mostly it's a couple hours together after her son goes to sleep. She's invited me along with a larger group to go hiking a couple times, and we get each other's mail and water each other's plants if the other person is out of town. I bought a house in this neighborhood after my divorce because it was close to my job and to my ex-wife's house (we share custody of two teenagers), but a lot of people move here because it is one of the few affordable city neighborhoods in a good school district. Then they realize that because the houses are all extremely old repairing them is a hassle. You think about yanking down the wallpaper somebody painted over only to discover lead paint or try to replace a door and realize you'll have to get one custom made. I'm an engineer and can get into this kind of stuff, but a lot of people don't. […]
