Would you rather live alone or get a roommate?

After a thorough house hunt, what’s next is deciding whether you want to live alone or get a roommate. In some cases, this is already decided even before renting an apartment.
This week, we conducted a vox pop on Facebook– would you rather live alone or get a roommate? It was not surprising that many people chose to rather live alone. We also found out that many of the people who had ever gotten a room mate for themselves had negative experiences with them.
Below are some of the notable, hilarious and insightful comments :
Apeh Mercy – Alone baby… No energy for roommate issh
