I definitely prefer to live alone or with people i get on well. It´s tricky though because on one side, sharing a house is cheaper, and living with others can teach you many things, but on the other side you have to tolerate many things like people being untidy or dirty, inviting other people to the house, etc.

Yes. I like to share house with someone. I don't like to live alone. Because it is boring to live alone for me. When I live with someone it is good for me to know new people and have new experiences.

Actually, I do prefer to live alone in the house or with my family, not with strangers. However, I accept the fact that sometimes you have to live with strangers because of the circumstances of life. Once, I lived with a colleague in work in the same apartment.

Do you prefer to share a house or live alone? Well, I've been lived alone for more than 7 years since I graduated. It'd be hard-pressed to live with other people again. I love my own space after a long day working, lying on a hammock, and reading a book or doing my own stuff

I prefer to live with my family or alone. I like my privacy. I don´t like to look at someone and I don´t like to disturb him. But shared housing is undouptedly more economical.

I prefer living alone, if I got a good housemate there is no problem with me I share it with him .
Each situation have their pros and contras. I like to sharehouse if previous I know the people and we share the same habits, sleeping schedule and values. But I think share house is good option only for a short period of time; for live a experience and enjoy it. However, If I must to choose just one, I prefer to have my own space to relax and live my life without pressure to make the convivience working.

I prefer to live alone because everybody has their own habits and preferences. I've tried to living with 2 housemates before, and it's really difficult and uncomfortable.

If I live far from my family so, I prefer to live a lone . The only case for me to resort to sharing a house with someone that I do not know ,if I found it coast me a lot for leaving alone and there’s no people I know to share a house with. Also my condition is to have an ensuite room .

The true is that I prefer live alone, maybe with my partner but never with someone that I don't know, because I saw a lot of movies where the roomie is a bad person, so i don't think to live with someone that I dont trust.

In my opinion, sharing a house can be a good idea if you are looking for saving some money and the fact of losing your privacy doesn´t bother you. On the other hand, I prefer living alone as long as I can financially support it.

I would prefer to live alone, but sometimes is difficult and expensive mainly in big cities so in this case it's okay for me to share a house. When I move to work in the city center, I usually rent a room in a house with share kitchen and living room. I like it...
