Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I prefer to live alone because I am a homebody and I like to have my own peaceful house with no one interrupting my alone time.

Single ensuite room with available three-bedroom house in Washington DC. 30 minutes walk from the station and time square. Moved in 1st January. Shared living room and kitchen with the housemates, $1500 for each month, no pet and parking. Contact us +9999 1231 6580 for viewing. As a adult, I prefer living alone because this living style makes me feel freedom, especially financial freedom and norm cultures. As a person who was born from the restricted and traditional types of family, living alone is one of the desire. They always believe that life is prefect when the children especially women or girls who is living with the family all the time. But I attempt to move in a hostel with the hostel mates. I can gain advantages and also disadvantages: the privacy situation between your family and the situation I get a flu. And then the important fact is not to stay with the annoying roommate.

I prefer to live with others. To be honest, I'll feel safer with someone else living together. Of course, the housemates are the nice guys, which is the best situation. Or I would like to live alone.

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.
