I am not usually afraid of the dark if I am on a familiar place. However, If the place is unfamiliar and creepy, I usually get goosebumps. How about you, are you afraid of the dark?

Hi sagar: I think that most of our fears are not rational but that's the way we try to protect ourselves of the unknown that is always associated with something dangerous. If you are planning to walk through a cementery during midnight do it, but please don't invite me. I'd piss in my pants with this idea . Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO

ya, if we have nothing to do or something to get involved in then sometimes our mind start thinking about the evil things.

I agree with you mturacom... It helps you to overcome your fear if you try to think all happy moments in your life.

not that i am afraid of the dark, but if it's a creepy place as you have said, who will be so courageous?

It depends on what place I am in. If I am in an unfamiliar place I am scared of the dark. But if I am just at home, I find it not scary.

Honest, I am afraid of the dark. I am always afraid of the dark if I am alone in the middle of night. Even though I never seen ghost or anything that terrible in my life, but the terrible stories make me afraid. I don't know how to be brave in the dark. I have this feeling since I was a kid. That's why I don't like to go out in the night.

Hi pinoy blogger: I am not generally afraid of the dark but it was different when I was a kid. Actually, when I was a kid I have a lot of fears. I think that people is afraid to the dark because they think there's something dangerous waiting in the dark. Sometimes I feel a little afraid but I try my best to feel relaxed in these moments. Thanks for starting this discussion. Have a nice day. ALVARO

Being at a known place where I have been earlier may be a road or a room filled with lot of objects, that’s fine to be around in dark. I am not sure about going to a new place or area in dark, never tried this. I think will be scared to go in dark, who knows what can harm me in the dark.

Hi pinoy! I am not usually afraid of the dark either. But, as you have stated when I am somewhere unfamiliar I am not so much creeped out as I am afraid that I will get up during the night and walk into something or trip and fall over something! I guess it would also depend on where I was if I would get creeped out! If I was somewhere outside and the surroundings looked kind of scary then I might be a bit afraid!

I am not afraid of the dark. I'm used to the dark place, because I live in the village. What I'm afraid if the dark is if I go and hit something because it is not visible.

I was never afraid of the dark but if there are voices and movement you can't identify that's scary. We were afraid of unknown since the beginning of human race and a part of us still is.

In a strange and unfamiliar place in the dark, I have the same feeling as you do because we have no idea what will happen in such a place or what bad things have ever happened. Thus I would be more alert to things around me as I am not so sure of the security of the dark place. Anyway, I will try not to be in such a place in the dark alone, but with someone for security. Take care.

Not necessarily of the dark, it's the location and it's aura that matters to me, and maybe the situation I am in.

No, not really. But sometimes when I read scary books I get a bit jumpy and think I hear things that are not really there. So I should not really be reading or watching scary things when I am alone in the dark, I guess, haha!

When I was a kid I used to listen to spooky stories about witches and the likes at dusk. I like its mystery that's why I'm always excited to hear my elders' stories about their bewitching experiences. Night time comes,if I'm alone in my bed, I'm a little scared imagining the characters in the story told plus the eerie sound of the night gives a more spooky feeling.I grew up in the province.;-) But as I grew older, the dark doesn't scare me at all. It is my being clumsy in the dark that scares me now.:-) Thanks for the add, my dear.:-)

When I was a kid I am so afraid to walk in the dark even if I am walking with my mother and father that is because of ghost, the one I've watched from the television. Now, I am still afraid of the dark but this time I am afraid of criminals hiding in the dark.

am i afraid of the dark? hmmm yes i can say. very embarrassing for a guy to admit it but yes i am afraid of the dark. there are a lot of things that can happen when it is dark. unexpected things. but if i am inside our house there is no need to be afraid. i dont like to get caught in a dark place and crowded place. just like you i am not scared of the dark if i am inside my own home but if its in a place were i am not used with then thats scary.

Hello Pinoy... I am not afraid always... But yes, if the it is cold and damp and nervous in there, I feel a little negative... I trust, that is simply the psychological effect of the cold, dark and negative atmosphere... have fun!

I myself am not afraid of dark. There was a time when I was a child. I were very afraid of dark at that time and I think most children are also afraid of dark. Then I grew up and I got to know how everything works. I found no reason of being afraid of dark. And now I sleep alone at night in my room and I have no problem in doing so. Happy myLotting.
