I prefer live alone than share the house because I like having privacity and I feel more comfortable in this way. But If it was a temporary time I am not worry about to share the house.

I have the luck to have a bedroom only for me in wich I have my bed, my desk with my computer and a chest of drawers where I store my clothes.

If the person I'm going to share my house with doesn't bother me and doesn't annoy me with their behavior most of the time, then I think everything will be fine!

I prefer to live on my own. However, I still live with my parents. At the moment, I am looking for a room to move out. It can be a double room with ensuite bathroom.

Oh, it's a good question. Actually, I'm an easygoing person. I don't like to fight someone if he/she doesn't storm me. However, I have an opinion. You both have to have similar personalities. If you are very different, you likely won't get on well with. I have lived with my housemates for 4 months. So, how is sharing the rooms? In fact, it's not bad, but it's not very perfect. Because I'm an introvert person, I care about staying on my own and spending time with myself. Sometimes, I can't do these activities.

Our relationship is not bad, but generally, we can't talk about various things. Since our hobbies are differing, we usually talk about politics, sports, and news. Then, I can bored of living together.

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.
