Hi friends, Can you stay alone in a big house alone in the night times? For me I cant because from my childhood I never stayed alone atleast one time also.. always either with my parents and sister or atleast with my granny and my sister and I was crazy watching scary movies and reading scary(devil) stories are comics some times so those thoughts will haunt me if I stay alone.. even after getting married if my husband by chance has to go out of station then I either go to my parents house or I call my mom or my sister to come and stay with me here.. how about you? Please share..

Hi Chaitra! I would not prefer to stay alone at night in my house. I would feel uncomfortable. Once I went to Hyderabad for some official visit (many years ago) we were put up in a very reputed five star Hotel. I was allotted an exclusive room, which has TV and all other facilities. I could not sleep for the entire night due to lonliness, though it was compeletely safe from all accounts.

I have no problem staying home alone at night. I used to be afraid when I was still young but eventually I grew out of it. I still feel a little afraid sometimes especially when I'm in a big house but I just think to my self there's no point scaring myself and my fear is all in the mind. Of course, I also pray whenever I feel a little afraid.

I don't mind being alone at night in a big house. it isn't something i would want to do all of the time. solitude is good when you need it. Sometimes it's better to have a little company at your side.

What you see in the movies, stay in the movies. Fear is just a natural reaction and by accepting it you come closer to get rid of it. I've been many times alone like you, sometimes literally in the middle of nowhere but I always had one thing in mind. After dark it is still the very same world as in daylight. In fact, I do like it by night even more

And you know what??? I was much more courageous when I was younger and now that I’m in middle age, I’m becoming more and more coward. Being a single child of working parents, I was always used to staying alone at home…regularly during the day times and sometimes during the night when my parents went to stay in our other house and I chose not to!!! In my early youth, it was rather a novelty staying home alone at night…I enjoyed the freedom and my own time. However, nowadays I’m becoming more and more weak both mentally and physically. I cant seem to stay alone even in a small flat… I imagine so many things lurking about in the kitchen LOL

Alone in a big house? That's scary. Yes, I might if I do not have other options and if there are around four big dogs with me. Yes, I think I will survive the night alone but with big dogs with me.

well let it be a lesson to you and not let your children watch a lot of horror movies and read devil stories. i have lived alone in my house but it is not very big so cannot say if i can live alone in a big house. but you are now married and not a child anymore. so try to spend a night alone next time your husband goes out of station. all your fears will go away.

i can stay. im used to it already and im not afraid of ghosts either. actually, i watch horror movies when im alone. i just like the idea. it's no big deal for me to be left alone in a big house. what i would likely to do is to play music or watch tv or movies, cook and eat, or surf the internet.

yes if we own the house or i know the owner of the house. my sister and i lived in a big house before and i'm used to being left in the house most of the time. it feels weird sometimes because of the deafening silence. and sometimes i think of whatever creepy stuff but we have two dogs so am with them roaming around the house even in the middle of the night.

Hi friend, if dogs are there then there will be no much fears..

No, I do not like to stay alone in a big house, I don't like the idea to stay alone in the night as it is very scary,and besides with a increasing number of thefts and robberies it is not safe for people to stay alone, But still by depending on the Almighty it is possible to stay alone.

Bindaas !!! I do stay in a big house at night times. If my parents are gonna leave me at night times, i would stay in my house without any fear or something like that. I just watch movies and play games until i get tired and then i will switch off the computer and get some sleep... It's just a night...

Hi, chaitra, I don't like to be alone, let it be any time in the day. But staying alone in a big house is not a problem for me if there is internet connection in that house, a television should also be there and there should be houses around.

Hi vijayanths.. I have all the facilities you said here.. but still I am scared to stay alone at night times.. yes being alone any time is boring but when I am alone day time I spend time on internet or I watch TV.. or I just go through some books and news papers.. and atlast I will go to work in my garden to remove weeds and so on.. so day time its not a problem for me..

i do stay home alone, even at night but only in our own house. i do watch horror movies and get scared as well and have goosebumps but i'm already comfortable in my own room and own home so i could definitely stay there alone even in the dark. But if i were to stay in a different house alone, i definitely would find someone to be with me.

No, i think it's really a intimidating thing to stay alone at night time, let alone in a big house. Big house always gives me a gruesome atmosphere. Oh, I cann't imagine the feeling, for I am already scared now.

maybe a little scary but I guess it's just a feeling early-start, over time, you'll get used to living at big house though alone .....

Big houses are scary. I don't think I can sleep. I am frightened of ghost and zombies. I cant help imagining them when I am alone. It is possible that their presence want to be with me. I sometimes imagine Sadako will appear. I am such a scardy-cat.

Hi friend, Same here.. I am also very much scaring with my imaginative thoughts so I can never stay alone.. So I always have some one with me either my hubby, mom, dad or my sister.. I am always dependent on them in this matter.. Thanks for sharing..
