I prefer to live alone so I can lead my own life without any distraction. I still meet my friends sometimes

I would rather live alone or with my family in my country. If I would have a chance to live abroad, I could share my house with a foreign person. In this way, I can learn new things from him/her, for example, culture, language, or other things.

Sharing a house is a super rare option in our country as there aren't many migrants, unlike the industrialized countries. Given that, I am always looking forward to get a housemate thinking it will be a new and challenging experience.

I prefer to live alone because I can do things but not disturb others like loudly listening to music or playing the instrument.

I prefer both options, but it depends on different things. For example, if you have a funny, kind, and clean housemate share a house can be a good option and cheaper. However, if your housemate is not a good person is better to live alone. Both options are good and bad things.

I prefer to live alone despite it's boring, but more conveniently!

I prefer live alone, that is comfortable for me.

Quite excited

I am living with a roommate now, it is okay for me cause we are staying like sisters, cooking and eating together. I think it would inconvenience if my roommate changed.

Of course, i prefer living alone, but if that a person is nice, do not mined.
