Yea, Because of sea, i can enter into a lion den. only because i feel like, if i simply enter into the sea,the only option is death.
But suprisingly,i like spending my time at a long distance to the sea. Because of the fresh air that blow frm the sea to the atmospere. If it comes to having a water transportation. i cann't try it.

I used to be afraid of the sea. I remembered looking at it, and thinking that some shark was going to come up and eat me or something. I also played games such as BioShock, so I was more than reluctant to go into the ocean. But despite that, I still fell in love with it because of Edgar Allen Poe's poem, "Annabel Lee". I was more enchanted when I started studying about mermaids and sirens. It made me want to live by the sea, but not necessarily go into it.

I'm not necessarily afraid of the sea, but I don't think I would like to be on it for very long. I have friends who practically live in the water and you can tell, they're just not made for dry land. But, I've been on ships and boats and I tend to get seasick. I feel like I could get scared being at sea for too long because if I ever lost sight of the shore, I would be terrified if I couldn't find my way back.

I have been out in the sea for short periods and i was not comfortable at all because of the fear i developed of drowning in case something went wrong. I am not a good swimmer and swimming in the sea would be a no no for me.

Yes I am. It's deep and dark and unknown. Not to mention sharks...

I love the sea. I don't know if there's a more relaxing sound to me than the sound of waves hitting the shore. I'm not the nest swimmer, but I'm decent enough I'm not worried about getting dumped into the sea. And I love beaches, so interesting!

There are some people who are afraid of going or staying long in the sea, are you one of them? Why?
For me, the sea is a combination of the sublime and the beautiful; it's beautiful, but its greatness is to be reckoned with.

For me, it really depends on the size of the boat, and the level of anger that the waves are expressing. But I love the water, all types, and the sea is no different. Just would prefer to be out on it in a big boat!

I am not afraid of the sea. I've been adrift in an inboard fishing boat, all alone, no battery, no light. The thoughts that went through my head were more about being hit by another boat. I wasn't stranded long enough to get hungry or thirsty.

It's not the same for everyone. My boat almost crashed into huge cement pillars holding up a bridge. A yacht almost crashed into me. Finally, I drifted up to an island. Silence, darkness, drowning and the like were not what I feared. It was the sudden crunch of the vessel that protected me from all things below...

That's a funny question to ask, but I am not afraid of the sea, I'm afraid of the water because of my inability to swim at the current time

I get paranoid at sea because I'm afraid of what's under the deep waters. I love swimming, but I easily panic in shallow situations. I love boating and sailing, though. Just don't let me fall in.

I am afraid of the sea! 70% of this planet is covered by the ocean. 95% of the ocean is still undiscovered. Sharks are scary enough! Could you imagine what lives in those undiscovered areas. One of my biggest fears is to be stranded in the middle of the ocean waiting to drown or to before I drown. There are things you just don't mess with. The cold, uncaring ocean and it's habitants are some of them.

I completely agree. I love the ocean. I would love to take a cruise.
