My first attempt at riddle.

I was there when you started.

You want me there at the end.

I take a lot of time.

And often - lots of space.

I can be used for cheating

I can be made of steel.

Can share me with stranger

But no one said you will

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ A few more lines, and a couple of rhymes might turn your puzzle into a well-received... (well...) muzzle. $\endgroup$ – Matsmath Sep 23 '16 at 11:37
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with @Matsmath, I suggest that you make your riddle at least 6 lines, to ensure that it isn't too broad $\endgroup$ – Foitn Sep 23 '16 at 11:47

    $\begingroup$ Done. But the first version had two completely different right answers. Now only one. $\endgroup$ – Barafu Albino Sep 23 '16 at 11:50

Could you be

the bed?

I was there when you started.

People usually start the day by waking up in bed.

You want me there at the end.

And most prefer to sleep at bed, when the day ends.

I take a lot of time.

We spend considerable amount of our life in beds.

And often - lots of space.

Beds range in size from infant cribs to king-sized platforms.

Let me guess......is it:

Milestone?

I was there when you started.

Yeah, you may set a milestone as the goal for everything before you start.

You want me there at the end.

The milestone can be the end, or just the checkpoint of your goal.

I take a lot of time.

Depends your visions of the milestone, it can be hardcore or easy for you.

And often - lots of space.

Also, it depends your passion and ability for beat the challenge, it will costs for a week, a month...... can stated as 'space'.

:)
