It's no worse than taking a vacation alone in a foreign country. If you have not already done so, you may prefer to travel abroad first. This may of course be much easier for Europeans, none of whom live more than a couple of hundred miles from their nearest foreign neighbour.
You could also read up on the country of your choice. Search the Internet, and maybe also read the Lonely Planet.
Unless you intend teaching in Irak or Afghanistan, or in or near a combat zone, there's nothing really 'scary' about it.
