I prefer live in single ensuite room in a three-bedroom house with two housemate, I find it more fanny to live with other people, also It’s too expensive to rent a house alone. the only downside is that the people who lives with you must be polite persons.

I would rather live alone than share a house with other people. Even if I'd have to spend more money, it'd be worth it because I'd be buying my well-being. When you live alone, you feel free and chilled as you don't have to bother to ask people to clean or turn down the music. No need to wait ages for your turn to use the kitchen or the bathroom either, you can take your shower whenever it suits you and comfortably sit or lie on your couch in the living room watching your favourite movie all relaxed, no worry whatsoever.

Sometimes I like to stay alone with natural beauty and seaside. Sometimes stay with children is most significant for me. Sometimes tour with children is the best memory of life.

I prefer to share a house. I used to live in share house when I was in overseas countries. That time I was able to save much money compering with living alone and make a lot of friends. some of them became my besties. but I guess whether the share house is nice or not depends on flatmates.

I like living alone, but somethimes it would be great to share the flat with an other person I like. So you can have a nice talk in the evenings or cook together on weekends. Rent in Germany is becoming increasingly expensive. Sometimes you haven't a choice to share a flat.

I prefer to live only with my best friends, my sister and my family members only. otherwise, I prefer to live alone Because you don't know the other person with whom you are going to share a room, is what type. I like to be clean, organized, and hygiene. Because I already had an experience living with one girl who is unknown to me and that was a very bad experience she was a very dirty, disorganized and unhygienic type of person. so yeah I like to be alone instead of living with some unknown.

I am from Myanmar, Rakhine State. As Myanmar traditional, we live all family members together. So, we live parents, brother, sister, my spouse and daughter at the same house. It is no problem. We feel happy and warm. At the dinner, we can share our experience and difficulties from work. I always get good advice from my parents. I have two cats; one Tom and one queen. I have also a small garden. I have some best friends, gathering and having fun. How great my life is! By the way, I don't like to stay alone. It is so lonely and boring.

I prefer to share a house or an apartement with other people. Because living alone with me is very sad. When i was a student, i lived with others 9 female house mates in a room of a student residence. The room was not clean and not big, some people were not tidy , there were 5 bunk beds and only a toillet and a bathroom for 10 people and so we were not confortable. But we were very happy , because we got on well et we shared also many things of life and they are really my best friends although we dont live in the same city now. Each year, we try to gather to remind our good memories

I definitely prefer to live alone or with people i get on well. It´s tricky though because on one side, sharing a house is cheaper, and living with others can teach you many things, but on the other side you have to tolerate many things like people being untidy or dirty, inviting other people to the house, etc.
