For me, I prefer to live alone for mere privacy.

I prefer to live alone as I do now, since I grew up as the only girl in the house and there was a significant age difference between me and my brothers so I'm used to be self dependent and have my own space. So yes privacy, peacefulness and being able to have control over my own living space is very important and crucial to me. But on the other hand, if I found someone that is hygienic, respectful and we have some common interests and preferences, then I don't mind to share a house with him/her and try that out.

I prefer living alone.I think it will be a new experience for me because I have never shared a room in my life. I like to try 1 or 2 months first. It will be a real challenge for me. I can't stand the light while I am sleeping . If my roomate is a night person, I will have nightmare. Furthermore, being a introvert, living with a stranger will be my most difficult task. But I would like to try and overcome my fears.

both live alone and share room have two sides. the good side of sharing room include: you have roomate to share everething, you can help, study, play video game, excercise together. but you no have private space. sometimes you can have conflictions.

I never shared a house with others besides my family. I need my privacy and I like the things clean and organised. So if in the future it will be an option, I would like to share with someone who have the same preference as me.

I don't like to share my house or even room with any housemate because a lot of them don't respect your privacy many of them don't respect your time if you need to take a rest or sleep

I do prefer living alone. I have only one experience renting a single room in a 2-bedroom house with 2 housemates, but there was only one there. He never left the toilet clean and was always dirty as f, and because of that I made up my mind next time I gotta get a flat or sth It would be a single one. But I'm always open, as long as the roomies be hygienic and worries about having clear the house without having telling them so (which is uncomfortable and weird).

I prefer to share a house. There are several reasons to support my opinion. First, I can save much money. For example, when I live with housemates, we can share electricity, water, gas bills and so on. Second, I dont feel lonely and can ask for their help when I have problems. I think this is so nice.

I prefer to live alone, because sharing is to hard, not always you find a good roomate and it will be exausting to find someone similar to us.

I love to leave alone all by myself in a studio apartment. It must be a single large space where I can do my art works without any interruption. It must be a well lit house with large windows. Kitchen and toilet should be arranged in open comcept.

I'd rather live with my bestie, it'll be wonderful. But to be honest I don't know it'll be fair or not. I'm very complicated person, I have my own living rules thus it'll be a problem to share a room with her.

As I have a family, husband and daughter I prefer to live alone. But when I was single, I loved sharing a house.
I prefer living with my close friends or my family. I think it is more supportive. Whenever I get problem, you I can ask for their advise immediately. Beside, living by myself is so lonely, I love sharing with others.

I prefer to live alone because of the quiet atmosphere and privacy, but I'd choose share a house if it's needed in order to reduce the rent.

I think it depends on when and where to live. I used to share my room at a hall of residence with one of my friends. After graduating from university, I lived alone in the town working as a librarian. Then I moved into the country and have lived with my family. Each life has upside and downside, but I love all of them.
I prefer live alone or with my family.
I prefer live with other people, to share and to drink.... Proust.

I prefer to live alone, because I like my independence. But if I go abroad and I don't have enough money, maybe I would share the house with other people.

I would love to live alone but in London is so expensive to rent flat just for one person unless you have high-paid job. I think that is the biggest disadvantages if you live in London that you can not afford to live alone but in other hand at least you may have chance to meet and know many people from all over the world.

Both experiences are cool. I have lived in republics in Brazil, when I was at university. We shared the bills and household chores. We had a dog called Pitanga. Good times!

I prefer live in single ensuite room in a three-bedroom house with two housemate, I find it more fanny to live with other people, also It’s too expensive to rent a house alone. the only downside is that the people who lives with you must be polite persons.

I would rather live alone than share a house with other people. Even if I'd have to spend more money, it'd be worth it because I'd be buying my well-being. When you live alone, you feel free and chilled as you don't have to bother to ask people to clean or turn down the music. No need to wait ages for your turn to use the kitchen or the bathroom either, you can take your shower whenever it suits you and comfortably sit or lie on your couch in the living room watching your favourite movie all relaxed, no worry whatsoever.

I prefer to share a house. I used to live in share house when I was in overseas countries. That time I was able to save much money compering with living alone and make a lot of friends. some of them became my besties. but I guess whether the share house is nice or not depends on flatmates.
