are you scared to be home alone?

No, I love being home alone - no one to try to change my TV channels, no one to talk to me when I try to read my magazines, I can watch dumb movies without complaints, and I can lie diagonally across the whole bed!
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
Do you feel safe if you're home alone at night? What do you do to feel more comfortable?

I'm a twin so I've had someone around since I was in utero. I do enjoy solitude, though. I just like knowing that my husband is nearby.

eta: Just realized I've described a control freak. Virgo, of course!

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
As I said, it isn't the being alone I dislike. I rather like being home alone.

It becomes a problem when I have to go to sleep and I'm alone.
At night? I hate it. I can't sleep. I love being home alone during the day. I've been doing it most of my life, it's pretty normal to me. And I'm able to get a lot of stuff done.

But night is a different story. My husband isn't around right now, and my mom works nights. She only works 3 or 4 nights a week, but during that time it's just the girls and I all night. I have to leave most of the lights in the house on. Outside ones too. I still barely get any sleep. I'd rather just stay up all night long.

I just feel scared and unsafe. I have every door and window locked. Some of them even barricaded.

I only get freaked out after watching a really scary movie or something, and then having to go to bed by myself! Hahaha!
Horror. Erotica. Cannibalism. And everything else in between.

I once watched an X-Files about cannibals by myself and got so freaked out I called my ex long distance and made him talk to me until my godmother came home and promised no one would cook and eat me while I was her guest. (After that she couldn't promise.)
