I prefer to live alone now but I know when I become a student I would want to live with housemate because when I go to study at university in big town I dont want to be alone. Now I live in little town and alone or with somebody does not matter.

I'm currently living with my family so I prefer to share a house more. When you live with other people, you won't feel lonely and they can help you do many things.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
It's better based on situation to choose live in shared apartment or live alone. Many students and bachelor employee prefer to live in a shared house to save money and decrease their costs. Living in shared house has many advantages such as making friends and living developing better understanding of the world and it's a way to appreciate other cultures. But in shared house sometimes you can't control all environments condition such as temperature and light, you should sleep on time and respect other rules.

I lived alone for a long time. Also, I shared my room with my friends in the university. I feel more comfortable when I live alone.

For me, I prefer to live alone for mere privacy.

I prefer to live alone as I do now, since I grew up as the only girl in the house and there was a significant age difference between me and my brothers so I'm used to be self dependent and have my own space. So yes privacy, peacefulness and being able to have control over my own living space is very important and crucial to me. But on the other hand, if I found someone that is hygienic, respectful and we have some common interests and preferences, then I don't mind to share a house with him/her and try that out.

I prefer living alone.I think it will be a new experience for me because I have never shared a room in my life. I like to try 1 or 2 months first. It will be a real challenge for me. I can't stand the light while I am sleeping . If my roomate is a night person, I will have nightmare. Furthermore, being a introvert, living with a stranger will be my most difficult task. But I would like to try and overcome my fears.

I prefer live alone ! It is not easy share a house. A young person may like it, but over time we like privacy.
