Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I would prefer to live alone because I love to enjoy by myself quiet. I think that it is much more freedom to me rather than staying in a shared house. However, Living alone in foreign countries is a bit expensive. If I can not afford to pay high rents then I must stay to share a house.

If I have to choose I prefer to live alone, but now I'm living with my friend. We get along with each other so until now I still live with her.

I enjoy living and sharing in a room, especially with different and strange people.

I prefer to live alone. I don't like to share anyone my space. I feel this is my free and peaceful area. So, after a crowded day and noisy people, I met. I don't see and hear all that in my room.

If I have to choose, I definitely prefer to live alone. The main reason is that I don't like to share spaces like a bathroom with unknown people. 😀

for me, it's okay to share a house. moreover, it will be save money if you rent a house with housemates. if the house is yours, it can be your side income. but if it is about sharing a bedroom, no, I can't. because sometimes I need to be alone. I need solitude to think.
