I would like like to live alone because I don't feel comfortable living with unknown people. Besides, privacy is another factor in sharing a room, it can happen that the housemate's like or dislikes won't be matched with mine.

Soumis par iiiirx6 le sam 30/05/2020 - 05:10

I don't have too much experience about living with someone such a housemate or friends, I prefer live alone but if I had a chance to live with someone who respect my own privacy and helpful why not it's might be funny to share our opinion and do chores together.

I prefer to live alone. Because if I live with someone I have to worry about the other person. For example, I have to be careful when taking a bath or using the kitchen. I feel that the shared space is not suitable because I have to care about the other person. Also living together is not a family, so it can be inflexible at times. And I cannot protect my privacy. However living alone can protect privacy and live without worrying about people. Actually I live alone now. It is very comfortable and I enjoy spending tie alone. You can also become independent by living alone. I have to do everything on my own, so it was sometimes difficult. But once you get used to it, it is not that hard. I think living with people is a lot of fun, but living with people other than family member is very risky. As a person who has experienced living alone, I thought that it would be easier to live alone, where you can make time in a private place.

In my opinion the sheared part of the house like kitchens, loving room its better because that help you to communicate in better way ,also to shear the idea and have more knowledge about the society specially in cuse its not your mother home land and you are in scholarship period . That help you to be wide knowledge person , and have more ideas and to stop the side affect just you can be in your bedroom but in case you live alone you will have more problem , perhaps! You will need more time to integrate with the new society and learn them traditional .

I think share is better than live alone. Because, house rent much high. Not only that if we share house it reduce household works. such as cleaning ,cooking and buying vegetables. I can learn many thinks from housemates.
