I prefer living alone if I am not living very far from my family. Sharing a house has some advantages like sharing the chores, the bills and the rent with the housemate(s). however, when you live alone you have the opportunity to enjoy your privacy and freedom. Moreover, it's not easy to find a housemate who has the same interests and habits as you

I prefer to live alone and enjoy the serenity and comfort of my own home, Just read some books and do all the things I love. In times of boredom I could host a house party and invite friends to come over. I think this kind of set up works for me.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?

I prefer live with my family or friends, because it's very funny and you don't feel alone. You can shere house chores like cook, lundry, clear the bedroom's many things, also we can talking about some problem or ask for advice.

When you be alone in your house, it's true that you could feel more free but so could feel sad.

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.
