Actually, I prefer to live alone because I feel comfortable when I am living alone. I don't need anyone to clean up the house. i can play games every time I want. However, when i share a house with roommates who also have benefits, we share the bill and talk about life and the future. Sometimes they can help me when i face difficulties or am sick when i live far away from home.

I prefer to live alone or with friends or family, because I don’t trust strangers.

I prefer living alone, because i feel more comfortable living alone without violating my privacy, and that gives me much time to accomplish many tasks.

Although I like living alone, I can't effort bills and other expensive thing. I am also a little afraid of anything when I am alone. And having a roommate is kind of a friend. In short, I would prefer to share .

Shared houses are common these days. To decrease the bills and rent expenditure, individuals live in shared houses nowadays. Although living alone is better than living together, sharing the bills and rent is a good choice when people don't make enough money.

I really prefer living alone in a big house. It gives me free time to do everything I want. Sometimes we have to live with other people if we move to another country.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I prefer to live alone. Staying with the housemates have many advantages and disadvantages. If I get well-paid job, I will stay alone.
