I currently live in a suite that comes with a double bedroom, a bathroom, a living room combined with the kitchen. The rent is more than 600 pounds per month including service charge for the management but excluding bills. No pet is allowed. Actually, I am not looking for housemates. Just typing here to practice my writing skill.

I prefer to share the house rather than live alone. Sharing helps to make new friends. In hard days you'll find support, and on good days you 'll enjoy together. I think life is exciting when you share it with people.

Currently I live with my parent. So, I don't know the feeling of live alone or sharing house. If I move out from my parent house in future. I prefer to share a house. Sharing a house can get new friends, communication, experience and environment. Also you can save your money for sharing a house.

I prefer to share a house to minimize the payment. But if I can afford it, I prefer to live alone.

I like to share a house. Having a housemate help me reduce cost. We can talk, share the bad stories in life.
