As long as my experience, i would prefer to alone. To be alone is more comfortable than share with other even they are closefriend. That's so many drama that i had if share with my friend. LOL

i don't prefer to share my house with stranger people  because i don't know everything about them past  or what is  the way they are thinking . therefor i prefer to share  my house with someone i know him very well like my friends or my relatives and i will feel comfortable with them.

Finally, I wish everyone a good day

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?

Of course I prefer to share a house. Our apartment is too much small. The apartment has a simply bedroom, a lovely living room where we spend more time. A kitchen and a bathroom. I've been living with my wife and I love to share space with her.

Currently, I shared my flat with 3 housemates. Shared bathroom, kitchen and living room. There is parking and no pet. We all are employees so we met at night. It's ok with housemates because rental fee is high in our country. But when I get high earn one day I will live with my pets. I believe I can make it.

That depends on my income, if I can afford to rent a house to live alone, 
I prefer to do that instead of share a house, but if I can’t afford to rent 
a house by my own, I don’t have any trouble to share a house.

Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!

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.
