Although I like living alone, I can't effort bills and other expensive thing. I am also a little afraid of anything when I am alone. And having a roommate is kind of a friend. In short, I would prefer to share .

Shared houses are common these days. To decrease the bills and rent expenditure, individuals live in shared houses nowadays. Although living alone is better than living together, sharing the bills and rent is a good choice when people don't make enough money.

I really prefer living alone in a big house. It gives me free time to do everything I want. Sometimes we have to live with other people if we move to another country.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
I prefer to live alone. Staying with the housemates have many advantages and disadvantages. If I get well-paid job, I will stay alone.

I absolutely prefer live alone in flat because I can do everything what I want. I lived alone by 2 years and I appreciated it very much, but now I live with my wife and it's nice too :)
