Big, harry, Creepy spiders scare me. I am a grown man, and I am afraid of big spiders, get over it! I can't stand the sight of them. They make my skin crawl. I know there are a lot of people out there that are afraid of them, are you one of them?

Hello dansazz I am not afraid of spiders per se, but I am also not a big spider fan. If I encounter a spider in my dwelling, I will often try to remove it safely (for the spider and for me.) However, there are times when a spider simply gives me the heebeejeebees. I know that this is usually not rational, but it is what it is. When I lived on the farm, every summer there was a huge spider who made a web near my barn door. It was gigantic, easily as big as a man's palm. It was yellow and a bit furry on the legs. Had big eyes. I would greet this every time I went in and out of the barn. I tried to coexist with this spider and think that I was successful in doing so. But there have been other spider encounters in which I have 'freaked out' to get them away from me. My father was deathly afraid of spiders. Whenever he encountered a spider, he took great delight in sending them to see their maker. Peace

Yes, Some of them just look way too creepy. It is freaky how they have those eyes, and hair, and some are weird colors.

Also, I do not like the way that they feel when they are walking on me.

That feeling creeps me out all night, and I can't seem to shake it.

Yeah, include me in the arachnophobics. I am also afraid of spiders especially those big ones. I cannot make a sleep when there's a spider near me, because I am presuming that it will crawl towards me while I am sleeping. Lol! Good day!

I hate having them anywhere near me or in my house, makes me think that they are coming to bite me or my daughter.

I am a girl and I am not really afraid of spiders, unless they can bite you, of course. I am scared of bees and wasps, whenever I see one I run away. I know that I shoudnt, but I cant help from running away.

I'm only afraid of the big ugly ones. Or the ones that you can tell are poisonous.
