I have experience of both. I think it is better to share a house with a person. I like discussing with persons, i feel anxious when i am alone.

No i don't, If it's not necessary but i love to live with family. And yes i have experience of both . It's good if roommate or housemates are nice otherwise it's not really good. Sharing is more economical and social.

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 .

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.
