I prefer to live in a shared accomodtion with a single room. I this caters to both my mood of solitude and company. Also shared accomodation helps on cutting down living expenses and ensures better security.

In my culture people live together and that cause some problems. One of this problems is lack of privacy and that effect on a person daily activity so you would find a people cannot perform the things that they want at the time that the want for instance some people loves playing guitar at night and others love to sleep early. The second problem is shearing duties like cleaning the shared area. Not all of the people know how to collaborate well. Pearsonaly I prefer to live alone for the reasons that I have mentioned before.

well, in my experience I prefer to live someone because living alone is not good something may happen or if there are some emergency cases you need help, but I live with my wife and everything is better.

I prefer to live alone over having housemates because privacy is a priority for me. Moreover, I am not that kind of person who can make friends easily, I am introvert to a great extent, which makes it hard for me to adapt with being surrounded by people the whole day.
IKR? If you are like me, you will probably feel exhausted by being surrounded by others for too long. And the only way to relieve stress is to be alone, just by yourself.

It is not easy to answer this question, because there are times when I prefer to live alone and others when I prefer to share with someone else. There are advantages to living alone, as my privacy is maintained and there is no risk of living with unpolite people. However, when we find a friend to share with our, life became lot of fun.

I prefer to share a house. But there are conditions. Good friends with me and not living one person and me. friends. First of all, if not good friends, I think everyone will be tough. House is rest place for me, so I don't want to be concerned about housemates in here. I'll not get tired long time. In addition, I need two or three people. Because I'm not good at being with the same person all the time and need also time to be alone. I don't want to lose alone time because I like the time since I was little. The more people we have, the less I have to worry about being alone of housemate. Share house can share housework ,divide rent and when I want to talk, good friends are nearby. I'm really longing for it. Living alone is good too, but more than that I hate loneliness. I became clear that I am selfish. Nevertheless I want to try it someday.
