Tobe totaly honest, if having enough finance, I prefer living alone because I want my own privacy. However, it's also very great to live with interested people. I am really a person who want my cake and eat it too.
Although I am an introvert person, I'd rather live with my housemate because I think we can take care of each other also we can easily arrange our time to do housework, cooking, sometime we may help each other.

In my opinion is sharing a hause interessant as long as a ensuite bathroom is existing. One can get to know new people and makes friends.

i think live alone is might better than live togheter. but i prefer to share my house with my relatives bxz i dont enough money to live alone. in west culture; people like to live alone bxz they have jobs, earn more money and their governments must be avialabe everythings that they need. but in the development countries people try to find works to stay alive. they havent enough money to build houses or rent better places. in these country people suffer from poverty, unemployments, electricity as well violents. all governors try to earn money from their people...

I prefer to live alone so that I can concentrate on my lessons. Living alone makes me more comfortable and freedom.I can do anything that I really want to do without noise, with peaceful mind and own decision.I love living alone though I feel lonely sometimes.
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.

I like to living alone, because I don't like the noise and bustle. And also a lot of problems occur when living together. I don't like disturbing people around me too much.

Breynner 提交于 周六, 04/04/2020 - 17:06

I prefer living alone, ´cause there are a lot of aspects which can affect the living together. E.g the way how I cook and maybe the others do not like, the tv programs I watch, the music I listen to and so forth.

In my opinion the sheared part of the house like kitchens, loving room its better because that help you to communicate in better way ,also to shear the idea and have more knowledge about the society specially in cuse its not your mother home land and you are in scholarship period . That help you to be wide knowledge person , and have more ideas and to stop the side affect just you can be in your bedroom but in case you live alone you will have more problem , perhaps! You will need more time to integrate with the new society and learn them traditional .

in my opinion, being alone is much better than the share room. i prefer to live alone. i don't like share room. because in private room what i am trying to say is that in live alone in single ensuite room we can most utalize the time. whenever your want to study you can, whenever you want to sleep you can, that is why i dont like share room.

I think share is better than live alone. Because, house rent much high. Not only that if we share house it reduce household works. such as cleaning ,cooking and buying vegetables. I can learn many thinks from housemates.

When I was in college I needed to share a house with a friend due to financial issues. It wasn't easy, and I'd say a prefer to live alone than share a room or even an apartment with someone. However, I'm married now and the previous experiences helped me to understand how to live together with someone who is neither my parents nor my brothers.

In my opinion, If it is allowed to live alone in your apartment, so you will have no troubles and no headache, otherwise, if you have an unstable financial situation then you would be obliged to behave, and one of the available solutions will be getting a housemate and sharing your house with
