This is so because Neon belongs to what we call the noble gas family in the periodic table(last column) and all the atoms in this family has the same electron configuration in which there is no unpaired electron and a full s and p orbital, which makes them extremely unstable and therefore unreactive.
Elements like neon meet the octet rule meaning they have eight electron in its valence shell. The octet rule states that all elements want to have eight electrons in their valence shell, so neon and other elements like it aren't as likely to bond with other elements.
