i think live alone is might better than live togheter. but i prefer to share my house with my relatives bxz i dont enough money to live alone. in west culture; people like to live alone bxz they have jobs, earn more money and their governments must be avialabe everythings that they need. but in the development countries people try to find works to stay alive. they havent enough money to build houses or rent better places. in these country people suffer from poverty, unemployments, electricity as well violents. all governors try to earn money from their people...

I prefer to live alone so that I can concentrate on my lessons. Living alone makes me more comfortable and freedom.I can do anything that I really want to do without noise, with peaceful mind and own decision.I love living alone though I feel lonely sometimes.

To live alone is much better than sharing an accommodation because you may have your own space and there will be no one to poke a nose.

I prefer to live alone rather than with a housemate. In my opinion, if you live alone you will have a lot of privacy.

I prefer to live alone. I already lived for five years shared a room, and bathroom and everything. It's no good.

Sometimes, I want to live alone because I like quite and privacy area. I can focus on thinking about some issues in my life. But, I also want to share a house. It make me happy and they can help me when I have trouble. They can share cooking, cleaning every day. It's so happy.

I like to living alone, because I don't like the noise and bustle. And also a lot of problems occur when living together. I don't like disturbing people around me too much.

I prefer living alone, ´cause there are a lot of aspects which can affect the living together. E.g the way how I cook and maybe the others do not like, the tv programs I watch, the music I listen to and so forth.
