Does anyone else get scared of going places alone at night?

I get really nervous if like I'm waiting somewhere for a friend to pick me up or something. Like any time I'm not with someone I know and I'm out at night I get knots in my stomach. Even if there are people around.

Does this happen to anyone else?

  • Mhmm being alone guy or girl I guess can be dangerous. Doesn't matter if you are in the ghetto or the suburbs. I suppose there are twisted people everywhere and it wouldn't necessarily mean that you are safe just because the crime rate is lower. But, there is a lower chance or likelihood of this happening statistically. I would recommend maybe taking self defense classes, boxing wrestling it may make you more secure. I am not saying this will protect you from every scenario. But, it could give you comfort knowing that you can take down someone or at least put up a good fight of they do try and do something bad

  • It depends on the place. I get scared of dark empty parking lots, and also, some parts of the city (Rue Barbès, Pigalle, around les bois de Boulgne.. even though there are always lots of people in there). over all, some places are more alive than others, and there are always groups of friends walking around, drunk people smached in odd places lol and also lots of tourists everywhere. Once in while, I just go out at night and enjoy walking in the streets.

  • Well... considering that I have been a loner almost all my life, due to me being socially awkward and a myriad of other deep rooted issues, I am used to going everywhere alone - whether it's day or night. I just don't care what happens to me.

  • Not if there are people around. If im alone walking through the forest or something im definitely more alert. But i actually love the rush you get from it.

    Besides I love being out at night, I love the fireflies, owls, raccoons, stars and moon and also how quiet it is regarding human noise but how noisy it is nature wise. It's serene and tranquil.

  • I'm more aware, more in an alert mode, especially if I don't know the area.
    I try never to be alone at night in sketchy areas, but even in safe places, you're not 100% safe.

    I wouldn't say scared, just more aware and careful.

  • Not really. Dark doesn't bother me. However as always, I keep aware of my surroundings which is automatic anyway.

  • No but Im on my toes. If that makes sense. I know the surroundings better than I woukd with my friends. I observed things more and stuff like that. I'm not afraid but the fight kicks in instead of flight ya know? Lol

  • I was at first. But given how I'm always alone I got over it. I just don't like going places anyways.

  • Eh not really. I do it all the time but I live in a safe neighborhood. You are less vulnerable than other girls just so you know.

    • Because I'm tall? I think every woman is vulnerable to sexual violence period (and I'm 125 lbs so not exactly large lol). But it's not just about rape it just gives me anxiety in a general sense.

    • Yes, I was referring to muggers. They pick on people who look weaker.

      Yes any woman can be vulnerable to rape, carry a taser gun with you.

  • Do you live or frequent shady' areas?
