I prefer to live alone. But in my student years I used to share a room or a flat and found it also nice.

A single room (not ensuite) in a student dormitory. Available 1 January. Shared kitchen and bathroom with a female flatmate. 200 euros including bills.

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.
