I prefer living with my close friends or my family. I think it is more supportive. Whenever I get problem, you I can ask for their advise immediately. Beside, living by myself is so lonely, I love sharing with others.

I prefer to live alone because of the quiet atmosphere and privacy, but I'd choose share a house if it's needed in order to reduce the rent.

I think it depends on when and where to live. I used to share my room at a hall of residence with one of my friends. After graduating from university, I lived alone in the town working as a librarian. Then I moved into the country and have lived with my family. Each life has upside and downside, but I love all of them.

I prefer live with other people, to share and to drink.... Proust.

I prefer to live alone, because I like my independence. But if I go abroad and I don't have enough money, maybe I would share the house with other people.

I would love to live alone but in London is so expensive to rent flat just for one person unless you have high-paid job. I think that is the biggest disadvantages if you live in London that you can not afford to live alone but in other hand at least you may have chance to meet and know many people from all over the world.
