Neighbor’s loud lovemaking is annoying

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Dear Alma,
I live in a lovely three-story apartment building and get along famously with most of my neighbors — except for one who occasionally makes love to his girlfriend very loudly. It doesn’t happen that often, and the other neighbors don’t seem to mind. I have tried talking to him about it, and I have even banged on the wall separating us, but it hasn’t stopped. I don’t want to be a nuisance, but this is annoying and awkward, especially when it happened when my dad was visiting. What should I do?—Sleepless in Seattle

Hey Sleepless,Ok, I’m embarrassed and red-faced, although my brown skin won’t let you see it. LOL. This is really, really funny and such an awkward position to be in, especially when you have company. Despite it being so totally embarrassing, it’s not all that unusual. In fact, it has happened to me.  When I was dealing with this situation, I put a note under the neighbor’s door. Did it stop the noises? No. I think she enjoyed the attention.

You say you’ve knocked on the wall with no success. I’d suggest you contact the landlord or tenants association in writing. Check your rental agreement. It should mention violations such as property damage, disruptive behavior and/or excessive noise. This situation falls under those parameters.  Since you live in such a lovely building, I assume you won’t be moving anytime soon. While you’re waiting for the appropriate authorities to resolve this issue, I suggest you invest in a great pair of headphones and/or a white-noise sound machine.  I hope your problem gets better soon. All the best to you, my friend.—Alma
