She introduced us, and we found out we were relatively close neighbours. Why was this surprising?

Us = we, She = someone else, all three H/T/F or very young H/A/F. True story from some years ago. I am one of "us"

us = 2 people?

Relatively close = same street? same neighbourhood? same city?

Is she a friend of yours? Family?
Is she a friend of the other person? Family?

us = 2 people? yes

Relatively close = same street? same neighbourhood? same city? none of these, hence the 'relatively'. We live in two different cities, in the same region of CA.

Is she a friend of yours? this Family?
Is she a friend of the other person? this Family?

Okay, let me think of some nice names for them.
How about Jessica for "her" and Kaylee and Sarah for "us"?

Was Jessica from CA as well? Did she introduce you when all three of you were present? Or did it happen on the internet?

Was it surprising for you? For Jessica? For Sarah?

Was Jessica from CA as well? no Did she introduce you when all three of you were present? well, not physically present in the same spot, but... Or did it happen on the internet? this

Was it surprising for you? For Jessica? For Sarah?"Jessica", or Cammie, was surprised to realize that "Sarah" aka Lily, who she had known before she knew me, lived so close to me...so she introduced us.

Is she from England?

Would she have been surprised to find out that you both live in the US in general? Or is the surprising thing that you live relatively close to each other?

The US in general? Or the geography of California?
Did she think the US were smaller/bigger? California was bigger/smaller? Did she think your city and Sarah's city were farther apart?

Jessica/Cammie: Hey Kaylee, you live in California right?
Me: Mhmm...
Jessica/Cammie: that's funny...I was thinking of going to meet this friend...
Me: Yeah?
Jessica/Cammie: Yeah, well, I didn't realize you were both there, so maybe you know her?
Me: Well, I don't know everyone in California, we're not tiny like Denmark...
Jessica/Cammie: Yeah, thanks a lot, rub it in...she's in this place called Pleasanton, don't suppose you've heard of it...can't possibly be the same place, she says no one would want to go there...
Me: Of COURSE it's the same one! It's less than two hours away. Seriously?!
Jessica/Cammie: Wow, you're practically neighbours!
Me: Well, compared to you, yeah!
