I won't force anyone to do anything they really do not want to do. I understand your fears, but if you allow a man to be your comfort it would be a great experience to have a secure relationship where you find comfort in his arms and your fears are then at rest and you build a life of trust with each other. The thrill is fulfilled for both when the experience is shared. Be ye not afraid and enjoy life with all of the turns, ups and downs but above all be happy. I have a lot of experience of being unhappy because the person who became my spouse now soon to be my ex -- was abused as a child and could not develop or build that bond of trust, all through out our relationship she pulled away and God forbid if I show her just how that felt having been pulled away from, I then became the devil or her father incarnate... Then she turned on me and hurt me when I was attempting to help the police, the police and the government were totally at fault for the resulting breakup or destruction of family ties...

i am single at the moment i mean i am single for a lot of years already so i guess thats one of the reason why i can push myself to ride for i have no one that i can sit beside i feel secure. i left my husband 9 years ago and tagged our four children with me. so i guess i need to find someone i can trust first before i try to ride the roller coaster. sorry to hear about what happened with yours. thanks for the response

Thank you for understanding, and as you see I also understand your position, yes, we all need someone we can trust. That would be the beginning where a foundation can be built and friends are best to encourage you onto a roller coaster...

There's really no problem with not riding a roller coaster. If you go on with somebody else it makes it a lot better so try that I guess, since they can peer pressure you on, and in the end you really don't regret it because it was so fun! Try smaller roller coasters first, and then work your way up. Good luck!

No need to persuade to somebody to ride a rooller coaster, it is very exciting games, if you have no problem with you heart,thirty nine years old is both ok,i think no one can be refused the roller coaster except someone who was very scarely of high, when we became old, we will lost more exciting activity,only for memory.so this is very exciting experience in our life. good luck and have a nice day!

39 years old is still young. In fact it is not so scary to try the roller coaster. After all, it finishes in a short time. I have ridden different roller coasters many times. Yes, it can be scary, but it is also very exciting:) Just try it before one day you are too old to ride it. I love China

I don't know if i can persuade you since i have had a roller coaster ride in my life... i am talking about the big scary roller coaster in Enchanted Kingdom or Boom na Boom... i am also waiting for someone brave enough to persuade and go with me on the ride...

why not we go and ride together. lol. we can sit next to each other and scream our lungs out. that would take us a bit of a courage i guess. it would be fun sitting with someone who loves to ride but afraid to try like me. thanks for the response aseretdd

Hi there! There is no need of feeling guilty because you cannot ride a roller coaster. I also apprehend to ride a roller coaster. Why torture ourselves, when our mindset is not such so as to bear the high ups and down of a roller coaster. You can enjoy other swings and spare yourself of not riding the roller coaster.

good point my dear friend. why not ride the merry go round instead. i used to ride an octupus ride and enjoyed it very much. i think that is the most outraged ride i can go. so i end up looking at the roller coaster and not trying it. so i guess we have to ride the simple rides rather than the one who looks fun but dangerous. thanks for the response

I love them but get the same terror ,when strapped in for the ride.This is the whole idea of roller coasters its a intense rush ,you can't find anywhere else. Just do it ,I doubt you will regret it once you have . The worst looking are always the ones ,I end up back on.Close you eyes the feeling of the g-force is enough to let you know your on it.Good Luck on getting your ride!

I don't to persuade you to ride roller coaster because i don't want to ride too.I think if you are the high pressure, you may be faintly.

hahaha oh busty, then we can hold hands and ride together. what do you think? is that a good idea? do you think we can finish the ride without freaking out? . i dont have high blood pressure and when i was younger i ride ferris whell and some stuffs like that but not roller coaster. maybe i am afraid for there are a lot of instances of accidents on roller coaster here in our country. maybe i will only try one when its on disney land. i wish to get a chance to go there thanks for the response my friend
