I don't know if I should believe in paranormal but I definitely get thrilled watching films and reading books about it. Maybe I just enjoy scaring myself, LOL!

But I won't mind living with a ghost provided it doesn't do nasty things to me. They are just lost souls who need our prayers so they can leave the world of the living.

It's a terrifying thought, that's for sure. But, if we put that aside, I think it might even be possible - although not less creepy. The idea of someone present without your knowledge, someone who can disappear or appear whenever they want... still, maybe they are lost souls who are still stuck on this world and need help.

It sounds like an exciting idea but the problem is, they cant be trusted, the longer they have been ghosts, the more they lose their soul/humanity and you can never expect them to behave/react as humans. ofc i don't know this for sure but i wouldn't count on it safety wise.

Well I'd be pretty concerned about my privacy being invaded if I can't see the ghost! I really do prefer being alone most of the time.

I saw an anime that was about a young man who moved into an apartment complex that was overrun by a dozen teenage girl ghosts. They were certainly annoying.

I have never believed in ghosts, so never gave this a thought. But sure, it sounds like a trilling idea. I would'nt mind as long as the the ghost minds its own business!

Paranormal or not, there are archaeologists actually finding evidence that there are other dimensions and we are experiencing those entities. Should we call them ghosts? The jury is still out for me on this matter. But it is exciting to know we may not be alone in this world. :lol2:

Living with a ghost isn't a bad thing after all. In an occasion where someone loses a loved one and his/her ghost reappears, it wouldn't be a bad thing in my opinion.

That reminds me, I watched a movie called He Lives in Me. I loved it because the ghost was friendly unless you wanted to harm him. So living with ghosts is interesting only if they are not meant to torment you.

Living with ghost is not bad, but I myself don't believe in that sort of thing.

This is something I think is definitely possible, as long as the ghost is a friendly one.

I would hate living with a ghost! I value my privacy far too much for that. I would need to trust the ghost really well to be able to coexist with them peacefully. Maybe if it was a ghost of someone that I knew in life and already had a good relationship with.

I don't believe in ghosts, so my answer is obviously no. Yet, if I were to believe in ghosts, in the way they are usually portrayed in books and movies, I guess it wouldn't be easy to live with a ghost.
