Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
Well, I had some bad experience sharing an apartment. I rented a single room where we assumed the cleaning in common the rest of the others spaces. It was awful.
I shared the apartment with two more guys, both of them did not make the housework ; they and their colleagues ate my food, left all the dishes dirties into the sink and what to say about the bathroom, it was extremely soiled.
After few weeks, I moved into a small and lovely apartment alone.

I would prefer to live in a shared house as it would be more cost effective and in case of an emergencies i would have someone who can offer their help but it doesn't mean i will be depending on them to take care of me.

I would prefer to live in an ensuite room, however, I can share the rest of the apartment with other people, as long as they are my friends. However, I don't like to share it the people I don't know.

Previously, I shared my room with my housemates. We rent a department with 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, and 1 living room. It's a good time to experiment But now I prefer to live alone because I like privacy and silent space to study.

I prefer to live alone. I don't like the noise . I don't want to care other people to do what I want.

i prefer to live alone, because of the time, when you live in housemate you did not get time to read or memorise you lessons.

I prefer to live by myself. Back in my twenties I use to do it, but now a days I can not, because I am married and have two kids. If I could do it again, I would do it for sure.

Hello, I prefer to live alone, but sharing a house is not a bad idea. It seems to me that sharing a house would be a good experience.
