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.

In my opinion, you guys should try both, it will be a good experience for you and trust me you will learn when you do both, then you will find out which is better for you.
If you haven't tried it, how do you know what it's like? go for it.

I prefer to live alone, I like my privacy and my own space.

I prefer to live alone, I like to live in my private room and study in a quiet place. I don't want to share my room with other people.

I prefer living alone because I like everything clean and tidy. I also like read, study and stay in a deep silent.
