Imagine a scenario where a man is acting creepily towards a woman. Writing from her perspective, she might say something like
He makes me feel afraid
but 害怕 seems too strong here. She's not fearing for her life: she's fearing that the man will do something unpredictable and weird.
While I believe it's correct, it feels childish and imprecise to simply add 有点儿:
He makes me feel a little afraid
Basically, I'm looking for a more suitable word here.
Question: Is there a word that means 害怕 (afraid) but less strong?
