ignore her in a disrespectful manner.  if she tries talking to you, just keep walking like you don't hear her and walk inside.  if she knocks on ur door ignore it.

Sometimes people may be nosy out of sincere caring. Sometimes I feel you or your person may bring out their issues. If you have spoken to this person and let them know that their behavior makes you uncomfortable and they persist then I suggest that you speak with them one more time. If they persist stop having any communication with them, if they continue you have no choice but to move away or report them to the authorities. You deserve to live in peace in your own community. >:( >:( :(

What to do with my nosey neighbors?   I've told them repeatedly over the past several years that I do NOT enjoy spending alot of time with people and that I don't like them in my business.  I don't need the dude going through my trash and taking it to the curb.  I don't need either one of them inviting themselves over just because they know I'm home.  I've told them I am a loner and need my space, they think I'm "joking".  Unfortunately, we go to the same church and so they toss Bible verses at me trying to show me that I obviously have a "problem" and that it CAN'T possibly be them.  If they think I'm getting really mad, then they suggest we "pray" together and then they'll say a prayer that totally makes me feel either "guilty" or "bad" for not wanting to be around them. 
 They refuse to put up curtains even when I offered to buy them.  They took down their fence so they could have a better "view" ---they said it's because good neighbors don't need a fence.  I say good fences make good neighbors.
 So today is July 3 and you know how I'm spending it?  Inside the house on FC because those neighbors have their lawnchairs, grill and food all spread out in the "combined yard" that we have now and I can't even put the dogs out for their "potty break" without them right there in their "space"... I wish I had some kind of high-energetic big dog that would run outside, knock them & their food all over and teach them a lesson. (Then I feel bad for having those "wicked" thoughts...kind of.  ;D)
 They don't have "mental issues", the police have been called on them multiple times by other neighbors...the police can't/didn't really do much except "warn" and talk to them.  They run the neighborhood "watch" and so they think it's ok to spy on neighbors with binoculars as long as they do it from inside their home.
 I really do not want to move...so I'm praying that they do! :angel11:

Wow, they are nuts.
I hate to say it but you are just out of luck.
There is little you can do except be rude, ignore them, and avoid them.
i would build a fence or shrubs and have heavy curtains.
Make a fortress against those morons!

Turn it back on her and start asking her personal questions.  If you do engage in a conversation immediately change the conversation and start talking about nonsense.

 rofl....

ok first of all, she has a really HIGH pitch "Minnie Mouse" voice that makes me "c r i n g e" whenever I hear it...
     and now they've got the rumor going around the neighborhood that I must be having a "mental breakdown" because of how I went "nutz" yelling about how there was "nothing wrong with my older dog".  (My good friend lives across the street and she has called the police twice on the guy herself, she told me they told her to be very cautious around me because I've been acting "very unstable" lately and then told her I was YELLING in my yard.)  geez...   ::)

Sometimes it's actually good for neighbors to be that way because they look out for your property. I remember that I used to have a neighbor that would watch my house when I left to work at 3 AM. I can still remember him sitting on his lawn chair in the middle of the night just looking over my house. Sadly he passed away a year ago, but something tells me that he's still looking over my house.  :angel12:

If it bothers you that your neighbor is being "nosy" than you should inform the authority to issue a restraining order.

I don't know about nosy but our neighbors tree hangs all over our yard and makes a huge mess in our yard.  My fiance said he is going to tell the city to tell them to cut it down.

Shoot them. LOL. No, really, I would just ignore them and if they get pushy, I would just tell them to never talk to me anymore.
