When most people are asked to say what makes their life meaningful, they refer to their relationships. The good life is most often associated with the people that are part of it, from close family, to good friends, sometime companions, casual acquaintances and general community interactions. People need opportunities to meet lots of different people in their communities in order to build up their support networks.
