    I am afraid of what type of person would come and pick it up.

    I dont like strangers coming to my house. So it will just make me worry and worry who will be coming to my door. Perhaps a rapist or an ex convict most likely.

    What should I do?

    Weights are pretty expensive so unfortunately they are just on the borderline between being cheap enough to give away and too expensive to not do so.

    Also the damn weight of them makes them a nuisance.

    How do I get rid of this burden?

    Ebay is my only option as far as i can see.

    I dont have any friends so cant give them to anyone.

    Why do you want to sell them?
    Weights and most of other gym equipment are timeless, if you are not using them now maybe you will later in a few years.
    I will suggest not to sell them.

    Relax man no shady dudes are coming for your weights rack.

    Probably just a teenage girl who wants to get into aerobics.

    If you use the weights, you will be strong enough to kill the axe murderer. Seriously though, you have to come out of your shell. If you don't, you're not living. You're just existing. If you had trauma in your past, I am sorry. Are you in therapy?

    Sorry dude but thats not cool at all.

    I live with someone who suffers with irrational fears, stress and depression and poking fun does nothing to help. In fact it has the opposite effect!!!

    OP. If you are worrying that much can't you ask a friend or relative to be there with you when you sell them?

    What country are you from? Do you have any retailers of used goods that will buy them?

    How about use them? When the rapist comes, he'll be afraid of you.

    Ummmmmm. Perhaps you could construct a series of traps in case things go wrong once he/she is inside.

    1. A rolling boulder down your stairs?
    2. A swinging log with nails in?
    3. A fake weight with a proximity triggered explosive device inside. In case he knocks you out then does a really slow runner with your weights.?
    4. A mob of blow up dolls..all men...to make it look like you brought "the lads" in case things go wrong

    There must be many more?

    I would say ive developed some social phobia all the more since doing internet marketing because now I don't really interact with anyone. As i said I have no friends at all and all I do is work on my own at my computer from when I wake til when I go to bed.

    Saying that most people who lift weights are rapists or ex convicts is a stupid generalization. If you don't want strangers in your house, then put the weights outside your home when you already have a meeting with a buyer and when he comes it's a done deal.

    I have no solution for the weight issue, but I'm posting because you need help. You have to get out and socialize with people a bit more. The last thing you want is to wake up 10 years from now and realize how much of your life was wasted. Agoraphobia is no joke and it only gets worse if you don't break out. If you do sell the weights please use the money to setup an appointment with a therapist. It will change your life.

    I wish you the best of luck!

    Sorry to hear of your phobias, but you've got to start living your life mate. Dealing with the phobias is not easy, but I should expect it to be worth it.

    But a quick fix for selling the weights would be a shotgun. Just don't shove it in the face of the 16 year old girl who wants to get into all that fitness/aerobics stuff. They usually bring their daddies which can get ugly.

    Or then simply: they pay for the weights, you leave them in your yard/driveway or such where they can be picked up and then when they call tell them you left them there, but had to go to work (an emergency etc.). Just don't leave the weights on your driveway for too long, I'm talking about taking the stuff there an hour before they get there or something.

    A doctor can help you with social phobia. Don't be ashamed to ask for help. Take care of it now before it gets worse and you are afraid to leave the house.
