I prefer to live alone because I just want to have a very personal place to rest in the end of the day.

When I was a student I preferred to share a house with other housemates, because that reduced my expenses. We shared the bills and rent. I had a single room, but I had to share the bathroom, living room, kitchen with three other girls. Sometimes is difficult to organize and put rules when you are living with people, that aren't your family. Because they way of living is different. Sometimes the girls were noisy and made our apartment mess. But there were moments when we prepared the dinner together, help each other with assignments, and watched movies together. Today that I have a job, I prefer to live alone or with my sister.

I prefer to live alone without sharing my home with strange people. I like to keep my privacy. When I accept a girl to live with me and shares me my home and my kitchen, here I destroy my privacy. So, l prefer to live alone and pay my bill alone also.

Sometimes I prefer to live alone. To do what I want to do. Watch movies or sports on TV, read books in silence or even play computer games. But I don't know where to send my family ))

I prefer to live in a shared accomodtion with a single room. I this caters to both my mood of solitude and company. Also shared accomodation helps on cutting down living expenses and ensures better security.

In my culture people live together and that cause some problems. One of this problems is lack of privacy and that effect on a person daily activity so you would find a people cannot perform the things that they want at the time that the want for instance some people loves playing guitar at night and others love to sleep early. The second problem is shearing duties like cleaning the shared area. Not all of the people know how to collaborate well. Pearsonaly I prefer to live alone for the reasons that I have mentioned before.

well, in my experience I prefer to live someone because living alone is not good something may happen or if there are some emergency cases you need help, but I live with my wife and everything is better.

I prefer to live alone over having housemates because privacy is a priority for me. Moreover, I am not that kind of person who can make friends easily, I am introvert to a great extent, which makes it hard for me to adapt with being surrounded by people the whole day.
