I have the weirdest fears
What about Fear of water? Phobias: xenophobia definition is a bit simplistic; yes 'strangers' but also more towards the fear of foreigners. Usually, used socially and culturally than just 'strangers' but I digress.
Why has the love of things (phile, philia, and mania) sound so evil and the fear of things (phobia) so "normal" and "safe"?
gerascophobia: the fear of growing old.
Pistanthrophobia: fear of trusting people due to past experiences with relationships gone bad. This should be renamed pissant-phobia.
Coulrophobe: a person with a fear of clowns. I don't have a phobia I just really really hate clowns.
