I think if galaxy can collide without without actually smashing each other to pieces then it's possible for beings to exist in the same universe without making contact.

Galaxys, when they collide, do not necessarily "smash themselves to pieces," but nonetheless, galactic collisions are often violent and involve the individual galactic structures being torn apart and worped, with the colliding galaxys eventually forming into one.

I don't think intelligent aliens will talk to us until after 2050. I think there is almost certainly intelligent alien life in our galaxy, and that it probably knows Earth is here and can support complex organic life. 

 

If aliens know that humans exist, then they have probably kept hidden from us because they wouldn't gain nothing from interacting with us and because the news might plunge us into chaos. In short, we are not interesting and we will hurt ourselves. Aliens don't want to be responsible for us doing the latter, so they're waiting until we're smarter and more self-controlled, and possibly for us to meet other conditions as well.

I voted for after 2050 because it seems we will first need to find an extraterrestrial civilization in order to contact it, and I think this won't happen until we begin to explore our galaxy, which will be after 2050.
