I prefer to live only with my best friends, my sister and my family members only. otherwise, I prefer to live alone Because you don't know the other person with whom you are going to share a room, is what type. I like to be clean, organized, and hygiene. Because I already had an experience living with one girl who is unknown to me and that was a very bad experience she was a very dirty, disorganized and unhygienic type of person. so yeah I like to be alone instead of living with some unknown.

I am from Myanmar, Rakhine State. As Myanmar traditional, we live all family members together. So, we live parents, brother, sister, my spouse and daughter at the same house. It is no problem. We feel happy and warm. At the dinner, we can share our experience and difficulties from work. I always get good advice from my parents. I have two cats; one Tom and one queen. I have also a small garden. I have some best friends, gathering and having fun. How great my life is! By the way, I don't like to stay alone. It is so lonely and boring.

I prefer to share a house or an apartement with other people. Because living alone with me is very sad. When i was a student, i lived with others 9 female house mates in a room of a student residence. The room was not clean and not big, some people were not tidy , there were 5 bunk beds and only a toillet and a bathroom for 10 people and so we were not confortable. But we were very happy , because we got on well et we shared also many things of life and they are really my best friends although we dont live in the same city now. Each year, we try to gather to remind our good memories

I definitely prefer to live alone or with people i get on well. It´s tricky though because on one side, sharing a house is cheaper, and living with others can teach you many things, but on the other side you have to tolerate many things like people being untidy or dirty, inviting other people to the house, etc.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone? Well, I've been lived alone for more than 7 years since I graduated. It'd be hard-pressed to live with other people again. I love my own space after a long day working, lying on a hammock, and reading a book or doing my own stuff

Each situation have their pros and contras. I like to sharehouse if previous I know the people and we share the same habits, sleeping schedule and values. But I think share house is good option only for a short period of time; for live a experience and enjoy it. However, If I must to choose just one, I prefer to have my own space to relax and live my life without pressure to make the convivience working.
