I live alone and I like that. The only problem that I face right now is that I live on the ground floor of the apartment, this is making me susceptible to break-ins. Earlier, I used to live on the second floor, and I felt the same. So, I was able to conclude that this fear is not based on the location of my residence- it is based on something else, which I cannot explain. I keep worrying about imaginary things. I often feel like a guy is waiting for me to fall asleep so that he can break in and rape me. This fear is straddling the line of irrationality and I don't know how to deal with it. I am not interested in getting roommates or buying a dog, to get a secured feeling. I am planning to install intrusion security systems soon. Is there any other way to deal with this situation?
