The true is that I prefer live alone, maybe with my partner but never with someone that I don't know, because I saw a lot of movies where the roomie is a bad person, so i don't think to live with someone that I dont trust.

I don't want to share anyone. I want to live alone. If they don't get any room, I share at this time.

I prefer to live alone because I think that sharing with someone means adjusting to their lifestyle and sometimes it's hard to find the right partner.

In my opinion, sharing a house can be a good idea if you are looking for saving some money and the fact of losing your privacy doesn´t bother you. On the other hand, I prefer living alone as long as I can financially support it.

TBH if I were a single, I prefer living with housemate/s , because there's lots of benefit.

I prefer to live alone because you have your privacy but when you move a big cities, it prefers to live with housemates because you spend less.

I would prefer to live alone, but sometimes is difficult and expensive mainly in big cities so in this case it's okay for me to share a house. When I move to work in the city center, I usually rent a room in a house with share kitchen and living room. I like it...
