My in laws currently have a pool, but they are planning on downsizing to a condo in the near future. Its extremely nice to have a nearby pool at your disposal and I am gonna miss it a ton

I think approximately 5 miles away. So a hop skip and a jump.
Pools don’t really count unless you can do laps though. Maybe if you can play water polo or volleyball.

All 3 of my neighbors. 1 I don't even know, 1 I'm cool with but not that close, 1 I'm VERY cool with and could just go in his pool house, drink his beer and jump in his pool unannounced and it be totally fine with them.

I have one, it's a pain in the ass to care for in the summer and doesn't get used enough. Several family members live on lakes around us so we'd rather go there.

relation wise? My parents live less than 5 miles from me now and have a pool.

distance wise? one of my best friends is a little under a mile from me and has one.

I will never own one myself again, if you don't have kids or don't feel like having people over all the time they always follow the same track: you use it a whole bunch the first year you have it and then it gradually tapers off to you using it maybe the first week it gets hot in the summer on your own and whenever you have people over.

Other than that they're a waste of space, money, and water in my experience. :o

It's like having a boat and not living either on a lake or near an ocean. If you have to come up with reasons for using it then you're eventually just not going to want to use it.
