Living alone might be sometimes boring. I like to meet new people and share with them the same space, but this experience can be exhausting if one does not get along with the housemate. Generally, I used to live alone for a long time, although sometimes I feel lonely, I still prefer to live alone than sharing a house.

>Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I prefer to live alone.
If I share a house, I need to some rules with other housemates to avoid conflict. But I do not want to have any rules in private time. Because rules belong to society.

I prefer to live with housemates because i enjoy opportunity to communicate with people of different backgrounds and personalities. I find living alone can be boring. But I belive that everyone should have their own space to relax, work and create in. As rescpectful person I understand the importance of respecting others' privacy and personal space. Overall, living with housemates can be awesome, as long as everyone respects each others boundaries.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?

If I want passive income and My house is as big as people can rent my room I would prefer to share a house but actually, I would prefer to live alone because I'm an Introvert and I don't like my neighbors or other rooms making noise when I want to relax time and I like to have my peaceful space.
