I prefer to live alone and bring guests because I want to be social and need to have some time for mine

I prefer to live alone as it offers more flexibility and independence. Also, I am a person who thrives on routine and it is essential for my well-being to maintain these routines every day. Living with housemates can make it challenging to do so. Moreover, you never know who your housemates might be. You may find yourself stuck with noisy party animals, a chatterbox or a pathologist who brings their work home :))).

I prefer to living with my own self, of course. Because much more flexibility to get an activity. But the most important is freedom :)

I prefer living on my own because I would like to have personal space in which I can do whatever I want without making somebody else annoyed. Also, I find it uncomfortable to live with someone that I do not know well.

i don't like to share my house especially with strangers , because i can't feel comfortable or safe and i can't even have a deep sleep in their presence

I am a sociable person. I like sharing a house with others. While on holiday, I prefer to share my room with a friend as long as everyone is respectful of the other's habits.

I prefer live alone, but in case of financial difficulties, I am obliged to share a three-bedroom house in minimum , and i'll be lucky if i find a good persons to share with , because it's not easy to live with anyone in the same place , first of all , everyone wants to be free in their house and do what they want, besides, we don't know the behavior of our housemate , if he's a good man or a bad one, that's why , we should be careful in choosing our housemate.
