    • But I also have number 4 :P

  • I don't have any of these phobias at all.

    I have been single my entire life and I'm ready to get with a girl and have sex but I get rejected every time. Thank God I'm not an anuptaphobic, or I would be in a paralyzing fear all the time.

    • How do you notice?

    • Show All
    • then you won't scare anyone XD

    • well jokes aside i think that being a bit uncomfortable when you first meet a beautiful woman cannot be characterised as a "phobia" its just that the person is a bit nervous initially, as is she.

  • None of those frighten me... but the last picture of trypophobia - looks like some disease even though it's probably something like a Halloween prop stuck on a person... Still... looks like an infections puss filled wound. o. O Alien one.
