I have a love-fear relationship with the sea. It fascinates me and at the same time terrifies me. Your question reminds me of the words of a sage who said that knowledge is like the sea, if you dive deep into it you will find limitless treasures, but one must be wary of the dangers of its hidden depths and caves.

I did have one experience where I almost drowned in the sea when I was younger. Now I can still go to the sea, but not to the deeper parts. I'll back away immediately.

Yes. I don't know how to swim. I will die from panic with just the thought of a capsize.

I love the feeling whenever I'm near the sea where I can listen to the song of the wave and feel the gentle breeze.

I love looking at the sea, but I don't particularly like to be in it. On a boat is fine, but actually being in the water is not for me. I'm not afraid of drowning, but more afraid of what is lurking in the water.

Since I can't swim, I am very cautious of the sea. However, I've never actually been on the open ocean, so I can't say for sure how I would feel about it.

I am afraid of the sea since I can't swim well and I'm afraid I'll drown, that's an experience I don't want again. I've almost drowned several times in a swimming pool (though, I don't know if that actually counts?), I am very sure it will be much worse when it's in the sea.

Actually I'm very much afraid of the sea. I just love to stay some distance away and watch how the waves are rolling on the shores. But I can't help dreaming of a Tsunami wave coming suddenly and taking me into the deep sea or a huge dangerous creature emerging out and swallow me. :(
So in brief I always wish to stay far away from the sea. :D
