Do you prefer to share a house or live alone? Well, I've been lived alone for more than 7 years since I graduated. It'd be hard-pressed to live with other people again. I love my own space after a long day working, lying on a hammock, and reading a book or doing my own stuff

I prefer to live with my family or alone. I like my privacy. I don´t like to look at someone and I don´t like to disturb him. But shared housing is undouptedly more economical.

Each situation have their pros and contras. I like to sharehouse if previous I know the people and we share the same habits, sleeping schedule and values. But I think share house is good option only for a short period of time; for live a experience and enjoy it. However, If I must to choose just one, I prefer to have my own space to relax and live my life without pressure to make the convivience working.

I prefer to live alone because everybody has their own habits and preferences. I've tried to living with 2 housemates before, and it's really difficult and uncomfortable.

I prefer to live in a share house with my family or someone actually I know, because it’s easy to afford this way and also I don’t feel lonely ☺️
