Okay so how much does it cost for you annually to live on your own? Solo, I mean. Like where do you live and how much would you say that is costs for you to live. Per month or year is fine, just those two please.

I've lived on my own in Italy and Greece, and renting a room in a shared flat in Italy ranged from 100-200 Euros monthly, depending on the zone, age of the building etc. Renting an entire flat by yourself would be 300-600 euros monthly, again depending on the zone, size etc. These are 2000-2003 prices though.
In Greece renting an entire flat in a major city (Athens, Thessaloniki) goes from 150 to 300 Euros (at least for flats under 60 m^2), and sharing flats is far less common. Even with a relatively low-wage job, one can still afford to live on his own in most cases, if he believes it's worth the extra rent (and I do ;-)
Students do share flats sometimes ofc, but it's (still) far less common among working class people.
