there's a saying no man is an island, so i prefer to live with my family and friends. We need to socialized sometimes, need to be with others and perhaps with friends to share some joys, tears, share our experiences, and some knowledge that God gave us we can share it to everybody

I like to live with friends better. I have two reasons. First because Friends as for me are the resource of comfort. I tend to exchange ideas with them,ranging from the common sense to my inner individual affairs. Without chattings with them, i will often indulge myself into endless "meditating" which once has made someone crazy. All in all, i will feel lonely if i live without any friend. Secondly, the instiction of human is intended to live with other creatures. i don't think any of us could survive just depending on his limited power. we need help when we are hunting for food ?clothes?or other activities for living. In this sense, there is no absolute "alone". You may choose to live in an island alone,like Robinson Crusel. however, you have to ask beasts or birds for help. Because you need food and house for surviving. Because you need them be companies with you when you are tired?ill or in troubled. we need friends or companions in all respect.

I prefer to live with my family. Perhaps sometimes it is nice to live alone because you can do whatever you like. But sometimes you still need to share your happiness and sadness with the people who you trust. A family is important for me. I love China

This is a weird question. We all know that no one can live alone. We need other people in this life to helping each others. If you meant the live alone or with friends is because of paranoid, then i think the problem is in yourself. Perhaps some people have problem with their psychicals, or even traumatic. But it doesn't mean those people don't need friends. A friend can changes many thing in our life. As a human, we have alot of limited abilities. There's alot of thing we can't do ourselves. But if sometimes you need to be alone, i think it's not a problem. Sometimes people want to be alone for refreshing, rethink, reflection, and even taking rest. Sometimes people don't want to be bothered. It's quite humanitarian. So don't worry, as long as still a human, everyone will be the same in this matter. Good luck and have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

Hey, Well it all depends really. I don't really like to live with my family, since they always tell me what to eat, wear, drink and what not to do. I am grown up, I don't need someone constantly behind my back yelling at me. I would rather live alone. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

For me, I think live with my friends and family is better for me than living alone. Though I love to be alone sometimes, I do not think it is a good idea to live alone. I need to have someone to talk to, to communicate with and to share my feelings. Have a nice day!

I prefer to live by myself! I lived 24 years with my family and that was more then I should of! I refuse to get a roommate! I know if I did I would end up with someone I couldn't trust! I don't want to live with someone that won't pay their part of the bills, someone that invades my privacy,and treats me like crap! I have lived with two different men over the years and believe me some of the stuff I just mentioned did happen! never again! Living alone is the way to go!

time to time , the choice changes...as when i was 16 yrs of age i wanted to be alone all the time with my mind and my life. then when i grew up...i enjoyed the company of my friends and they were like the world to me..more than my life. but when the colleges got over and friends where parted from one another.so the friendship life got finished with no friends near by to chat with. so..lastly but the most important part of our lives..family. late but right, i prefer living with my family always becoz they are always their for me at all times whether gud or bad.

Well,i want to live with family and friends.I think we can't live alone in this world,bucz i think to express some joy or some sorrow we need somebody to share.We cannot cry or laugh alone and one more thing that if we are in problem ,our family and some good friends come to help whether they like it or not but if you stay alone who will come in your need-So its better to live with family and friends not alone.

I love family and friends but i require a space of my own everyday to ponder over the events and correct myself wherever i have erred.I like a space of my own for sometime in the day to listen to music,browse,read and plan my financial investments.
