I prefer live alone, but in case of financial difficulties, I am obliged to share a three-bedroom house in minimum , and i'll be lucky if i find a good persons to share with , because it's not easy to live with anyone in the same place , first of all , everyone wants to be free in their house and do what they want, besides, we don't know the behavior of our housemate , if he's a good man or a bad one, that's why , we should be careful in choosing our housemate.

I prefer to live alone.Because i want to do something my own way. I dont want who try to control and check my every steps. If i study in abroad i will definitly share a house in abroad. Because of financial situation. In my country rent of a month is aproximately 100 euro in one room for one person.

I prefer to live alone because I can't share the bathroom with any stranger. It is not a comfort choose and I would have felt like I am not staying at my home. It is like living a hotel room.

As an introvert I prefer living alone, it has its own problems but I think it's still better than living with the people I don't know who might have particular life styles and I possibly can't get along with
of course living with friends, family or people you already know is better than living alone
