Why do people like hanging out in the dark?

Just curious. I have a guest here, that keeps the lights off all the time, it drives me insane, I can never see anything. It isnt an electric thing, because they know we dont pay electric. But now its almost 5pm and dark outside because rain but me and the kids are fumbling around in the dark house because she likes it dark. Why?! Am I missing something here? I like being able to see what i'm doing, but I'd like to hear some opinions, maybe I am alone in this!

I really not enjoy with darkness. At least when electricity is down, I will prepare myself with candles, torchlight or rechargable light. If I have to go outside in the and come back at night, I will switch on my lamp first... so when I come back, I can see my house is bright, and the neighbours also won't get disturb with darkness, also people will assume that we are at home. Because dark house invites robbers inside I think.

All the time?? How odd-- I will turn the lights off and relax in the dark if I've had a stressful day- I'll turn the music on low and turn the lights out and chill. I also dim the lights when I want romance-- Puts more of a romantic spin on things- I also turn off the lights when I have a bad headache- Light makes my head hurt more when it already hurts-- But I never leave the lights off all the time- Why not ask them?? I find this odd-- And my daughter would freak out- I'm scared!
