It depends on people I will share my house with. I will love to have a housemate who is nice and good at my rules.

I can share my house with other people but I don't like to share my room with others as I like spending my time more with myself.

it depends on with whom Im sharing the house. I do like my space and independency. Living by myself gives me the opportunity to decorate and organice my house just the way I like it to be. But, in the case of living with a friend that I already know and with whom I can be comfortable enough to talk and get to some agreements, I think it is more fun sharing a home with them.

I prefer living in a house alone, but I also like to be able to invite my friends to come over occasionally.

I prefer to live alone because I don't like noise, and i'm very introverted and I have some dificulties to share my space with people I don't met a long time

I live with my family now, so i would prefer to live alone. Because i think i need more personal space and freedom.

As an introvert, I definitely prefer to live alone; however, I could share a place with other mates as long as we are respecting each other's privacy and space.

I've always lived with my family (we are an extended family), and sometimes I feel like I don't have much space. As a young teen, I want to be alone and do recreational activities on my own, but it's not frequently common here because everyone wants to know what you're doing. That's a bit annoying.
