well, in my experience I prefer to live someone because living alone is not good something may happen or if there are some emergency cases you need help, but I live with my wife and everything is better.

I prefer to live alone over having housemates because privacy is a priority for me. Moreover, I am not that kind of person who can make friends easily, I am introvert to a great extent, which makes it hard for me to adapt with being surrounded by people the whole day.
IKR? If you are like me, you will probably feel exhausted by being surrounded by others for too long. And the only way to relieve stress is to be alone, just by yourself.

It is not easy to answer this question, because there are times when I prefer to live alone and others when I prefer to share with someone else. There are advantages to living alone, as my privacy is maintained and there is no risk of living with unpolite people. However, when we find a friend to share with our, life became lot of fun.

I prefer to share a house. But there are conditions. Good friends with me and not living one person and me. friends. First of all, if not good friends, I think everyone will be tough. House is rest place for me, so I don't want to be concerned about housemates in here. I'll not get tired long time. In addition, I need two or three people. Because I'm not good at being with the same person all the time and need also time to be alone. I don't want to lose alone time because I like the time since I was little. The more people we have, the less I have to worry about being alone of housemate. Share house can share housework ,divide rent and when I want to talk, good friends are nearby. I'm really longing for it. Living alone is good too, but more than that I hate loneliness. I became clear that I am selfish. Nevertheless I want to try it someday.

Another thing needs to keep in mind, sharing a single ensuite room with a bathroom is sometimes irritating.

I would like like to live alone because I don't feel comfortable living with unknown people. Besides, privacy is another factor in sharing a room, it can happen that the housemate's like or dislikes won't be matched with mine.

I don't have too much experience about living with someone such a housemate or friends, I prefer live alone but if I had a chance to live with someone who respect my own privacy and helpful why not it's might be funny to share our opinion and do chores together.

I prefer to live alone. Because if I live with someone I have to worry about the other person. For example, I have to be careful when taking a bath or using the kitchen. I feel that the shared space is not suitable because I have to care about the other person. Also living together is not a family, so it can be inflexible at times. And I cannot protect my privacy. However living alone can protect privacy and live without worrying about people. Actually I live alone now. It is very comfortable and I enjoy spending tie alone. You can also become independent by living alone. I have to do everything on my own, so it was sometimes difficult. But once you get used to it, it is not that hard. I think living with people is a lot of fun, but living with people other than family member is very risky. As a person who has experienced living alone, I thought that it would be easier to live alone, where you can make time in a private place.

I prefer to live with someone. I sometimes like to be alone. But I think that homemade is very important. For example; you don't pay bills alone and you can do housework together.

I lived alone for a great time and it felt nice to have my own space and my privacy. But now that my husband and I live together I couldn't imagine living without him anymore, for the company we do to each other became fundamental to me.

To live alone is much better than sharing an accommodation because you may have your own space and there will be no one to poke a nose.
