I prefer living alone to sharing a house cuz it gives me freedom and personal space, but sometimes it has a bit uncomfortable cuz i have to pay higher prices for food, accommodation, and transportation. Therefore, sharing a house might be a smarter solution if you want to save money and don't like living alone

I prefer live alone, but it is difficult because the high costs. So It's cheaper share a house and It's better to look good housemates.

I prefer to live alone because i would like to have a personal space where I can decorate by my personalities without needing to see anybody's eyes.

I like both! My experience living alone was great. Then i shared with housemates and it was hard but fun too. Now I live with my husband and I really enjoy it.

I prefer to live alone because I enjoy peace and quiet, and I dislike it when people turn the TV volume up too loud.

I prefer to live alone and bring guests because I want to be social and need to have some time for mine

I prefer to live alone as it offers more flexibility and independence. Also, I am a person who thrives on routine and it is essential for my well-being to maintain these routines every day. Living with housemates can make it challenging to do so. Moreover, you never know who your housemates might be. You may find yourself stuck with noisy party animals, a chatterbox or a pathologist who brings their work home :))).

I prefer to living with my own self, of course. Because much more flexibility to get an activity. But the most important is freedom :)
