If I were single, I prefer live alone in one house. But if I can not afford a small flat or house with one bedroom, I prefer to rent a room in a house with females that also singles with shared kitchen and living room. But if I have to, it's OK also to share bathroom too. The fourth choice is to rent an ensuite room in a house with male and female with shared kitchen and living room. I ever rent a room with male and female with shared living room and bathroom. No kitchen available. The house located in calm and save neighborhood where mostly stable family live there, children going to school, father going for work and mother take care their house. My male and female room mates are going to school and day-working worker. The host live in the same house at different area. They are old couple.

I Prefer to share with friends, it’s good to help each other, and support each other. Depending upon our circumstances we can choose to stay alone or share a house. if you can afford rent, and you need more privacy better to stay alone, so when you study no one can interrupt. They both have their advantages or disadvantages, all those we need to consider according to our circumstances. Personally, I prefer to share with a house

Both to live alone and to share a house are lovely all depends just on a moment you are living your priorities and temperament. I never lived alone.  When I was young, I shared houses with my friends because I needed to study and save money. Nowadays, I live with my two daughters, and this experience is incredible.

When I study or do my homework I'd like to be on by own and it's better to have no noise around. When I have problem I need someone to discuss with, or when I feel happy, sad, frustrated, excited and so forth I'd like to share them with someone. So I prefer to share a flat or house but have my own private area to study. I wish to share with someone tidy, self-regulation and friendly.

Currently I live with my parent. So, I don't know the feeling of live alone or sharing house. If I move out from my parent house in future. I prefer to share a house. Sharing a house can get new friends, communication, experience and environment. Also you can save your money for sharing a house.
