Hi. Even at my age of 49 i am still afraid of the dark . i have to leave a night light on at night It started as a small kid and i have never out grown it .. Too me the darkness just smothers me .. Are you afraid of the dark ? Do you sleep with a light on or night light ?

the darkness doesn't bother me at all. I do leave the hall light on and the bedroom door open though just so I can see what is happening in the house. My husband usually closes the door to block the light when he comes to bed because he needs total darkness to sleep.

I am not, when home.. besides worried about the cat running around and attacking or stepping on him lol. And I certainly have a hard time sleeping if any lights (even just from the tv) is on. But when I go out at night, I have to have light. Too many scary people these days where anything can happen.

Yes, I am afraid of the dark. I have a fear of falling, and when I cannot see that fear is amplified.

@Nana49 That is smart. I do the same, and I know that if an emergency-a phone call or a fire, occurred during the middle of the night, we'd be safe to see our way.

I can't sleep if there is any lights on. I like complete darkness when I go to bed.

When I'm alone at night in the city it is scary. And yes, I'm getting afraid and starting to worry. But I love when it's dark and there are only 2-3 candles and i'm cuddling with my favourite person. This feeling is the best feeling ever.

Cuddling could possible make me forget about the darkness. As i would feel safer in his arms ..:)

Not really in the house, but I don't like to go walking around outside after dark..especially not here, because who knows what could be lurking and it is not well lit. I mean if it can't be avoided it can't be, but one night I knew I had left the phone in the car..and mostly just because it was dark, I did not want to go out!

I prefer to sleep in the darkness. But my hubby and daughter want the night lamp to be switched on. So that if they need to get something there will be no problem.

I am not afraid of the dark and get used to the lights on.
