Do you prefer to share a house or live alone?
really, i prefer live alone ,or share a house with one housemate but i live in single room and he lives in a single room . with shared kitchen .

I prefer to live alone, I need to be in the quiet and tidy house. I don’t appreciate that things change a round me.
But it’s wonderful to receive friends and famil.

I prefer to share a house with other than live alone. But if our housemate is not satisfied with us, everything can become terrible! :)

I prefer to live alone because I am comfortable to do anything I want to do.

I prefer to not share a house because I think not safe.

I prefer share house. You can meet new people and enrich your live with differents experiences and cultures

I prefer to live alone because I think if you want to share a house with others, you have to be same behavior for your convenience.
