I prefer live with other people, to share and to drink.... Proust.

I prefer to live alone, because I like my independence. But if I go abroad and I don't have enough money, maybe I would share the house with other people.

I would love to live alone but in London is so expensive to rent flat just for one person unless you have high-paid job. I think that is the biggest disadvantages if you live in London that you can not afford to live alone but in other hand at least you may have chance to meet and know many people from all over the world.

Both experiences are cool. I have lived in republics in Brazil, when I was at university. We shared the bills and household chores. We had a dog called Pitanga. Good times!

I prefer live in single ensuite room in a three-bedroom house with two housemate, I find it more fanny to live with other people, also It’s too expensive to rent a house alone. the only downside is that the people who lives with you must be polite persons.

I would rather live alone than share a house with other people. Even if I'd have to spend more money, it'd be worth it because I'd be buying my well-being. When you live alone, you feel free and chilled as you don't have to bother to ask people to clean or turn down the music. No need to wait ages for your turn to use the kitchen or the bathroom either, you can take your shower whenever it suits you and comfortably sit or lie on your couch in the living room watching your favourite movie all relaxed, no worry whatsoever.
