    Well, I can't drive, so I am usually not alone. But, when I was taking classes for my Master's, I would walk back to my apartment. One class was over after dark. When it was light, I could take a shortcut to reach the place I lived, but after dark, I would stay on the main road sidewalk and not use the back way. There likely weren't any evildoers hiding in the dark, but I didn't want to take that risk.

    This was a bit over a couple days ago when such things were pretty common as were interoffice romances and the like.

    Coworkers would date? Sounds like a bad idea....

I try to get to the gym a few times a week, but I'm not in what I would consider decent shape, and have dealt with a number of health issues since my late 30s which prohibit how much I can do. I am rather tall, so I suppose that's on point, but I wouldn't say that any of the rest would necessarily give me little to fear from most threats that are not a gun. I don't waste my days worrying about existential threats, because I trust in my Lord.
    I think his point was that you're not a female, where "existential threats" are much more of a possibility to them than you.

    My father once told me to never fish off the company pier. It took one or two experiences for me to grasp the wisdom of that advice.

    Males can get mugged too.... And children of both genders can be victimized in horrific ways. 50% of men are weaker than the other 50% and there are some women who could beat up some men. But society does seem to make more women paranoid about becoming a victim! What's worse is the folk who claim there is nothing one can do to reduce the chance of becoming a victim. Have they never heard of being aware of your surroundings and knowing what is normal, abnormal, or dangerous?

    Bingo - the nice security guard won't mind walking you to your car - it's probably more interesting than what he was doing!

    Even if not, he won't mind!
