How satisfied are you with the relationships in your life? 

Relationships Australia has just released their 2011 Relationships Indicators Survey. 

One of the most interesting findings was that Gen Y, the most connected generation on the planet, are also the most likely to feel lonely. 

This could be for a number of reasons.  It could be a reflection of the quality of social networking relationships, it could be because as a generation they’re less comfortable being alone, or they may have neglected to nurture their real life, face-to-face relationships. 

The survey also reveals how Australians feel about partnering, marriage and sex and how supported and connected they feel within their communities. 

Alison Brook from Relationships Australia explains the survey findings.
