    I Love the Dark

    I always wait until I absolutely have to to turn the lights on in the morning. I get up before the sun comes up to go to work, so it's always dark when I get dressed. I have my dresser drawers organized so that I always know whatever I pull out is work appropriate. I also always...

    The Dark Is My Friend

    It's funny, cause when I was a kid, I was really afraid of the dark, I was afraid of death, and the monster under the bed. Now I've made my peace with death as best I can, and I kicked that monster's *** for five years running, coming home drunk or high as a teenager, and he...

    Not Me!

    I mean unless you're talking about a place with dangerous people or animals, that's a different story! But like the boogieman and stuff, I don't get scared of that.

    I Used To Be Afraid Of The Dark. But Not Anymore.

    I used to be afraid of the dark. But not anymore. I find solace in the dark at times. Darkness is not to be feared if it is understood, revered, or even loved. Understanding enlightens, and en-light-enment sheds light Making the darkness void, illuminating the night. Like the...

    I Am Not Afraid Of The Dark..

    I am not afraid of the dark, but I am terrified of nighttime. When it gets dark outside, and it's late at night and everyone else goes to sleep, I get really paranoid. I am afraid that I will die or something terrible will happen to me at night. During the day, I am fine. But as...

    I am never scared when I go to bed.

    I mean, why would someone be killed in their sleep? Just go somewhere safer! Duh.

    Darkness

    I am not afraid of the dark. I have walked unlit highways, streets, etc. I am terrified of the darkness within.

    I Never Have Been..

    I was never scared of the dark. Not even when I was little. Monsters under the bed never scared me. I think the only thing I was scared of in the dark was the possibility of stepping on a lego or something that I couldn't see. My friends always thought (and still think) I am...

    Cats' Eyes

    It's seldom truly lightless; there almost always is a thread of light, and I have eyes like a cat. So why should I be afraid?  I can always see well enough to navigate.

    That Isn't Quite True. . .

    Sometimes I am, sometimes I'm not. It just depends on the time. After I watch a horror movie, for example, I'm afraid of the dark. XD But in general, just during a regular night, I can walk around a dark house, lay on top of the covers in a dark room, etc-- without worrying. I...

    Don't Like It

    I don't like it, but am not afraid of it. I prefer the sun and light, so am not overly fond of the dark. My brother's terrified of it, and always has been. Every night I go upstairs and his light is still on. I've no idea whether he'll ever get over his fear but nodbody's...

    Not One Bit.

    As a matter of fact if I have to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom or anything I don't even bother to turn the lights on. Why should I? I know where everything is, don't need to waste the electricity to see it.
