I enjoyed to share house when I was studying in a college, though currently I prefer live alone.

Actually, I do prefer to live alone in the house or with my family, not with strangers. However, I accept the fact that sometimes you have to live with strangers because of the circumstances of life. Once, I lived with a colleague in work in the same apartment.

be honest, I prefer to live alone, it doesn't mean I am a selfish person but normally I find no problem to live alone and I enjoy myself a lot when I stay alone. That's all

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone? Well, I've been lived alone for more than 7 years since I graduated. It'd be hard-pressed to live with other people again. I love my own space after a long day working, lying on a hammock, and reading a book or doing my own stuff
