About This Quiz

If you were born between 1965 and 1980, you're officially considered a Gen Xer. This generation came after the Baby Boomers and got their "X" label for being somewhat of an unknown. They were facing a new world and were born into one that changed greatly. This generation met the internet and knows what life was like before it. Millennials, on the other hand, were the next generation both between '81 and '95 or so. These kids grew up in a tech-savvy world and have been connected to others like no generation before them.  These differences in upbringing definitely have an impact on how each generation approaches things like dating and love. Why? Because they've had vastly different experiences in relating to others, in getting to know them, and in falling in love. 

Now sure, there are a lot of overlaps between Millennials and Gen Xers — both of them are pretty well adapted to using the internet to meet and keep in touch with new people — but there are definitely differences as well. So the question is, which generation is more closely aligned with the way you view love and actually experience being in love? Take the quiz and et's find out!
