I prefer to live alone. But sometimes it's financially impossible to do so especially in big cities, that's when sharing comes handy and save us a lot of cash.

It depends, I prefer to live alone and have my own house. It would be much expensive. It is pretty good to share house if anyone single and college student. It is best suited for college students because it's much cheaper.

I prefer to live alone. For me it is important to have the order and design that I love and that I will be the landlady in the apartment I live in.

In my opinion sharing house and living alone have got own advantages. Living with housemates is never boring and always is cheaper :) Living alone gives you a guarantee for a clean bathroom and a full fridge :)

I would rather live alone or with my family in my country. If I would have a chance to live abroad, I could share my house with a foreign person. In this way, I can learn new things from him/her, for example, culture, language, or other things.

Sharing a house is a super rare option in our country as there aren't many migrants, unlike the industrialized countries. Given that, I am always looking forward to get a housemate thinking it will be a new and challenging experience.

I prefer both options, but it depends on different things. For example, if you have a funny, kind, and clean housemate share a house can be a good option and cheaper. However, if your housemate is not a good person is better to live alone. Both options are good and bad things.

I rather live alone due to privacy. Even though could be nice to meet new people and share funny-time with someone different but not yourself, i think i could be also kind of stress and more if they are all adults. In my point of view, unless they were part of your family i coudnt work. Therefore i prefer to live alone.

I have never shared a house but I think that can be nice if it is with the right people. You can socialize with your housemates and share the housework and you can have your own privacy in your bedroom.

When I was a student I preferred to share a house with other housemates, because that reduced my expenses. We shared the bills and rent. I had a single room, but I had to share the bathroom, living room, kitchen with three other girls. Sometimes is difficult to organize and put rules when you are living with people, that aren't your family. Because they way of living is different. Sometimes the girls were noisy and made our apartment mess. But there were moments when we prepared the dinner together, help each other with assignments, and watched movies together. Today that I have a job, I prefer to live alone or with my sister.

I prefer to live alone without sharing my home with strange people. I like to keep my privacy. When I accept a girl to live with me and shares me my home and my kitchen, here I destroy my privacy. So, l prefer to live alone and pay my bill alone also.

I prefer to live in a shared accomodtion with a single room. I this caters to both my mood of solitude and company. Also shared accomodation helps on cutting down living expenses and ensures better security.

In my culture people live together and that cause some problems. One of this problems is lack of privacy and that effect on a person daily activity so you would find a people cannot perform the things that they want at the time that the want for instance some people loves playing guitar at night and others love to sleep early. The second problem is shearing duties like cleaning the shared area. Not all of the people know how to collaborate well. Pearsonaly I prefer to live alone for the reasons that I have mentioned before.

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.

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 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.
