Question of the Day

QOTD 03 October

Postby Funky Fairy » Oct 3rd, '14, 8:59 am

My question to you today is....

Are you happy to be out walking once it gets dark?

I wouldn't go out once it starts getting dark at all, even in the winter months around 5-6pm.
We live in a safe neighbourhod (2nd most desirable place in the UK remember ;) )
But I don't take risks.

We were out walking the dog this week and it was around 7pm and quite dark.
Our little town is full little alleyways giving you short cuts all over but it's also covered in trees.
Huge trees everywhere. Pretty by day but earie by night.
We saw this little little old lady enter one of these alleyways with her dog. It was so dark down this alley. She didn't even have a torch with her. It really surprised me.

Does it bother you?

Not really. I grew up in the country and have lived in the city for the last 7 years. I'm also 5'7" and 200 lbs, so I doubt I'm an easy target. I just try to be very conscious of what's going on around me. Not to say I try to put myself in those situations, but I'm not usually uneasy about stuff like that.

Yes I would (and have) here in my neighborhood. We live in the burbs, and have sidewalks and street lights. Of course I don't wander too far from home, and am very conscious of my surroundings.

I guess I should have said I have no worries here - it doesn't bother me to be out alone at night in my hometown. Elsewhere. No.

Sometimes I will walk the dog around the block after dark, but the whole time I am looking over my shoulder. It's scary at night!
