I do prefer living alone. I have only one experience renting a single room in a 2-bedroom house with 2 housemates, but there was only one there. He never left the toilet clean and was always dirty as f, and because of that I made up my mind next time I gotta get a flat or sth It would be a single one. But I'm always open, as long as the roomies be hygienic and worries about having clear the house without having telling them so (which is uncomfortable and weird).

I prefer to share a house. There are several reasons to support my opinion. First, I can save much money. For example, when I live with housemates, we can share electricity, water, gas bills and so on. Second, I dont feel lonely and can ask for their help when I have problems. I think this is so nice.

I'd rather prefer living alone in my nest than live with someone I don't like...

I prefer to live alone, because sharing is to hard, not always you find a good roomate and it will be exausting to find someone similar to us.

I love to leave alone all by myself in a studio apartment. It must be a single large space where I can do my art works without any interruption. It must be a well lit house with large windows. Kitchen and toilet should be arranged in open comcept.

I'd rather live with my bestie, it'll be wonderful. But to be honest I don't know it'll be fair or not. I'm very complicated person, I have my own living rules thus it'll be a problem to share a room with her.

I love living with my family; but I wish one day I could live alone, being totally self-sufficient. :)

As I have a family, husband and daughter I prefer to live alone. But when I was single, I loved sharing a house.
