i was scared of the little ones which were absolutely everywhere and were even played by some children when i was a kid. sometimes at home a big spider would come by but it really doesnt do anything. it just sticks to the wall and maybe just waiting to go get its food. anyway, im not really scared with them anymore. im more afraid of slimy creatures....hahahaha

Oh good day to you. Even I had the same problem when I was a kid. Big or small, everything irritated me a lot. But now I am fearless. I hate huge and ugly ones. I'm having an aversion to them.

Hi, friend I have always been scared of spiders. Even now when I am grown up, I cringe everytime I see one. Spiders are my problem when I lived alone in another city for my studies. Spiders and lizards. ugh. Take care!

So someone around here is similar to me. I don't have any problem with lizards, though. They don't scare me I used to be scared of spiders, not now anyway. And I'll take care...

scared, i think the spiders are the ones that are afraid of us cause we hunt them when we were still kids, we take them out of their nests and make a game out of them. i just want to make it clear, we don't kill them!

I am perfectly in agreement with you. Yes. Spiders are scared of us and they think we are going to attack them. People always say that. I have even heard that a hungry lion is scared of men..Anyway I wouldn't like to meet a hungry lion.

Wow! I never thought I had met anyone this brave. Anyway I admit that I was scared when I was a kid. And it's really fascinating that you never got scared of them. Spiders are a blessing to the farmers. And they are even considered to be a sign of luck. But i don't know why- many people are scared of them.

Well, in case it is hard to believe, just look up. The previous user has said that spiders are kept as pets. And you hate cockroaches too? I'm not scared of them, but I never liked cockroaches. Have you heard that cockroaches are eaten in some Chinese dish?? I can't believe it!

I am afraid of spiders since I was a kid 'till now. Regardless of type and sizes, they freak me out! Even the not dangerous type. For me, all spiders are dangerous! I can't stand to be near one. I am amaze whenever I read or hear people take spiders as pet. I think they're brave.

Really? I'm glad that everyone is not a lionheart. I would not be scared now. But of course, I don't like one hanging around me. And people take spiders as pet?? They must be some spider-man fans. I never knew spiders were tamable.

Nah, me and my friends even played with them. It's a great past time you know. We would hunt for spiders then let them fight eachother. Yeah, i know it's mean but we were just kids. I'm scared of large spiders though like the one i see frequently on television. I think they're pretty much poisonous. The Black Mamba something. I may not want to get near it.

I was never scared of the little spiders. But i'm scared of the large ones even now. My mother got bitten by a large spider a couple of years ago and the skin around the bite started to dry up and began to peel off. It wasn't very pretty but after a couple of weeks new skin formed and the bite was healed up.
