    Say you were alone and it was going dark and you saw a small but physically fit looking woman walking towards you. If she looked suspicious say she saw you then turned to look around her would you worry a bit. For example maybe about her attacking/ or stealing something from you and running off etc. Or is it only men you worry about?

    I would definitely be concerned (especially being small and slim and female myself, I'd be really easy to take in a fight!).

    Given that she's a small female, and I'm a (relatively) tall male, I wouldn't identify any physical threat from her - so no, I wouldn't be worried. Unless she had a weapon, obviously.

    jk, nah, not really. Not only would I make really weird animal noises to freak her out, if she did steal my wallet she'd be disappointed (cuz I'm broke AF).

    Assuming that I'm significantly bigger and stronger than them, I'd be more concerned about her being afraid of me, so would try to give a wide berth, e.g. cross the road.

    That's what I do as well.

    Answer to question, no I wouldn't be worried.

    I probably would be slightly concerned but if she tried anything I would fight her and win so yeah.
    if you could catch her, if shes physically fit she might grab your phone quick and be a good runner.

    Its about speed too if shes a thief and gets away etc. Thats good of you though! Not many people go out of their way to please strangers.

    Not in the slightest. (which probably isn't a good thing cause she could have a knife )

    She would need to unzip my pocket to do that so the chances of that are very slim.
    Thats a good thing, lots of folk walk around on their phones.

    no (unless she had a weapon, which presumably i can't deduce unless she's literally holding it in her hand, so no)
