Yes, it would be grand if someone were by my side (preferably my husband), but we all die alone. Even if someone is holding your hand, it's a one-of-a-kind experience and we all go through those "gates" by ourselves.

I guess not, but I'm not growing old alone since I have my partner and family. I suppose if I was alone now, I may be fearful of having to grow old alone.

No, I am not afraid of getting old alone. It would be nice and comforting to have another person by my side but is not necessary for my happiness. I have found happiness comes from inside, not those around you.

It does sound scary, but either way I'll have people who love and care about me.

Very :/ I don't mind death no more, but the idea of living my life out without my hubby by my side makes me cry. I love him much too much.

My ex-husband was afraid of dying alone and his body not being discovered for a week, but only because the neighbors would complain of the smell. So he married me. (Our marriage foundation was nothing but a mass of potential fears.)

For myself, I've always felt I would die alone. It really doesn't bother me. I spent most of my life being more afraid of living alone than dying alone.

I am somewhat. My family tends to out live their mates. That is my only concern.

I'd love it if I could stay with my partner or have someone with me by my side, but I've been alone before and I can tolerate it remarkably well.

I don't really think about it, to be honest.

I voted yes because if I were not married, it would be an issue. Luckily I have a spouse and things are secure as we go forward.

I hadn't given that any thought at least not before now.

Not afraid to grow old alone, but very afraid of growing old poor.

I used to be, but now I think that I would be okay on my own.

I'm not really worried about whether I'll grow old alone, so much as I'm worried about getting the opportunity to grow old.

Nah, if I end up old and alone I'll go date other old people.

Well put, but as far as the question are you afraid to grow old alone; yes and no. I have a good feeling that I'll have a husband or long time significant other to grow old with.

I was when I was single, but now that I'm married, not really. I know my husband would never leave me but then again he is a bit older and not in the best of health.

I spent most of my adult life alone, before I met my wife. I hope she'll be with me the rest of my life, but I'm OK with growing old alone if need be.

I'd love to live surrounded by friends and loved ones when I grow old, but I realize that isn't always possible. Yes, the thought scares me.

I knew this one girl in high school who my friend said was afraid to grow old and was afraid of being alone...she killed herself before turning 20 because her boy friend broke up with her and she stressed out.

If it happens, it was meant to be.

Somewhat afraid of growing old alone. I don't believe in heaven or hell, so this life is all I have.
