    I generally feel safe in all public places until I catch a pervert looking my way, or a guy following me-which leads me to go up to a stranger to talk to them just so that creepy guy can go away!
    Omg people follow you? D: what kind of people? That's scary

    I don't feel safe at night what so ever. Mainly because I have heard some terrifying things that has happened in my area at night and it scares me At night I literally RUN home especially when a car door opens...

    Yup people follow me, and it happens all the time...especially when I am by myself! They are like older men...at least late 20s and early 30s....it makes me cringe so much.....and its always awkwardly weird....I remember when one guy approached me...

    I don't really have much reason to stay out after nightfall so yeah I feel fine in public. I guess I don't like being alone outside though. I'm a 16 year old, who lives in London.

    alone? not at all.
    i literally cannot be in public alone - being left for just a minute will make me panic (sometimes itll lead to an anxiety attack or me crying in front of everyone). i feel like i am constantly being watched by everyone and that someone is always about to attack me.:/

    (and no, i havent had any negative experiences that would lead to this)

    Yes, for the most part. But then, I don't tend to walk alone after dark or in particularly dodgy places.

    Well, I do currently live in an area with a bit of a drugs problem. But I find they tend to keep themselves to themselves (or are just too zonked out to notice me...).
