I live with my family now, so i would prefer to live alone. Because i think i need more personal space and freedom.

As an introvert, I definitely prefer to live alone; however, I could share a place with other mates as long as we are respecting each other's privacy and space.

I've always lived with my family (we are an extended family), and sometimes I feel like I don't have much space. As a young teen, I want to be alone and do recreational activities on my own, but it's not frequently common here because everyone wants to know what you're doing. That's a bit annoying.

Living alone might be sometimes boring. I like to meet new people and share with them the same space, but this experience can be exhausting if one does not get along with the housemate. Generally, I used to live alone for a long time, although sometimes I feel lonely, I still prefer to live alone than sharing a house.

>Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I prefer to live alone.
If I share a house, I need to some rules with other housemates to avoid conflict. But I do not want to have any rules in private time. Because rules belong to society.
