Anuptaphobia- Fear of staying single.
Brontophobia- Fear of thunder and lightning.
Chaetophobia- Fear of hair.
Clinophobia- Fear of going to bed
Coulrophobia- Fear of clowns
Eosophobia- Fear of dawn or daylight.
Lachanophobia- Fear of vegetables
Nephophobia- Fear of clouds.
Papyrophobia- Fear of paper.
Pediophobia- Fear of dolls.
Pupaphobia - Fear of puppets.
Siderophobia- Fear of stars.
Soceraphobia- Fear of parents-in-law.
Venustraphobia- Fear of beautiful women.

So what are you afraid of?

I had no idea there were so many "official" phobias. I am super afraid of flying- I hate planes. I get super anxious and nervous and I panic. Every time. And I'm also scared of eating low quality meat- I would love to know if there is an actual name for that one!!

I can understand people who are scared of parents in law and thunders, even tho it may be too much.

But beautiful girls? Vegetables? Really? LMAO my stomach hurts from laughing.

And fear of staying single is sadly all over the place.

Those were great. It's so interesting to see the various phobias people have. I'm not really seriously afraid of anything. I'm a bit claustrophobic and I don't like cockroaches too much either.
I have a little something on my blog for you =)
