i'd say so. happier people live longer too.
i looked after a 101 year old lady once, you wouldnt have thought she were anything over 70, she was so full of life, there was this other old dear, also 101 and you could tell, all she wanted to do was die, she was pretty miserable....the difference between the two of them was that the first 101yr old had a really good social life, got involved in stuff, and had a great support network of family and friends. the other one didnt.
hence social life=happiness=longevity.

not necessarily. Sure in most cases, those with a great social life are genreally happy. However, I now people who really do have little social life, simply becasue they prefer their own company, and they seem happy to me.

Though, just to contradict myself, like the previous person says, my god-aunt is 90 odd and goes on crusies all the time! Such a flirt as well, with her toy-boys!

Definitely a +ve correlation. I know I'm always at my happiest when I'm with my friends, or have several things lined up to do with friends etc.

When I don't have anything organised or nobody seems to be around, thats when I tend to get a bit down.

id say initially it is a +ve gradient, but then i think it would stabilise and eventuly begin to fall when you reach the point when you cant remember where you live

Why is that necessary? Having friends over for pizza and a film still counts as a social life.

I talk to myself. I'm not lonely, I'm not miserable, and I have loads of friends and people to talk to. I do it because I'm mad as a hatter.

I love going out with my friends it does make me happy, but even when I'm not with them I'm talking to them on msn or on the phone. Saying that I do like to be on my own sometimes for a bit of peace and yoga
