That isn't ridiculous at all. Like it's been said, you have experienced negative things in the past and it makes complete sense for you to feel uncomfortable in similar situations present day.

It's completely normal to have that fear, and I think sometimes the past has a way of making people question their current thoughts and fears. But, do know that your fear is completely valid and it isn't ridiculous at all. You can't help how you feel.

Perhaps you can avoid this guy if you'd like to go back to the community center. Maybe you can bring a friend with you, or you can hang around a group of people while you're there so you don't have to get too close to this guy.

Take care. <3
