actually i am living with my parents and my sister. i have never lived alone or with housemates. I think that, if one day i will leave my parant's house, i would like to live with other people, with housemates so i will not be alone and expecially i can lear another cultures and have a new friends and i can spent time with them and not alone.

I used to share a house and live alone also. In the university time, I shared a house with 3 female housemates. There was one girl who never do the cleanning work. It really annoyed me. So when I got a job, I decided to live alone in a rented room. It was comfortable, however, it was boring because I had no one to talk with. After I got marriged, I moved to live in an apartment with my husband. It is perfect.

I don't like share my house with strange people , because different persons have different moral and I don't know that I can share anything with them .

when I was a teenager I loved sharing my house with others, but nowadays I get married so it's no possible and it's no easy to understand the cultures and behaviors of each other. Sharing the kitchen now it will be a disaster.

as a teenager I was extrovert, but in my adult life I became more of a deep thinker who had a very hard time to understand others behavior, so I decided to have more alone time. now I really prefer to spent more time in solitude and want to be alone.

I prefer to live alone. Because I am a married man and live with my lovely wife & two kid boys. ;-)

Currently, i prefer to shared a house. Because, this make me saving my money and felling happy when have many people.

I prefer to live alone. Because I don't want to have a conflict with other people. however, share house help save money.

I never have lived alone, but I prefer my privacy

I don't like share a house or flat with stranger. Basicly I'm not very sociable person so I prefer live alone. It's simplier. I can do what I want and there aren't any handicap from housemate.
