I prefer to live with others. To be honest, I'll feel safer with someone else living together. Of course, the housemates are the nice guys, which is the best situation. Or I would like to live alone.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
Well, I had some bad experience sharing an apartment. I rented a single room where we assumed the cleaning in common the rest of the others spaces. It was awful.
I shared the apartment with two more guys, both of them did not make the housework ; they and their colleagues ate my food, left all the dishes dirties into the sink and what to say about the bathroom, it was extremely soiled.
After few weeks, I moved into a small and lovely apartment alone.

I would prefer to live in a shared house as it would be more cost effective and in case of an emergencies i would have someone who can offer their help but it doesn't mean i will be depending on them to take care of me.

I would prefer to live in an ensuite room, however, I can share the rest of the apartment with other people, as long as they are my friends. However, I don't like to share it the people I don't know.

Previously, I shared my room with my housemates. We rent a department with 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, and 1 living room. It's a good time to experiment But now I prefer to live alone because I like privacy and silent space to study.
