    Friendships with Millennials

    Hello!

    I wanted to ask if any of you had any close friendships with Millennials. I'm an early 90s Millennial and pretty much all of my closest friends are late 60s Gen Xers. I love them all very much and go to them for life advice all of the time, although I wonder at times how close they feel to me given that I'm the same age as their children, haha. But, generational/age differences shouldn't be a barrier to good friendship in my opinion.

    If you have any close friendships with Millennials, what do you think of the friendship?

    Generation Y

    I am a millennial (born in '86), and I have two gen X friends: a man born in '75 and a woman born in '71. Both have the typically X no-nonsense attitude to life. The woman (she is a shopkeeper) perceives me as naive and somehow childish because of my interest in aliens, outer space, transhumanism.

    I appreciate the fact that both Xers share my dislike for social media and most of 2010s pop culture.

    86 barely qualify as a core millenial, you just made the cut from being one of those old wrinkly X/Y cuspers from 1985

    Numerological debates are not fun, kids. I think of the generational boundaries as somewhat fuzzy. It's about your experiences. Many people like to mention cartoons, but remember one person stops viewing them at 10 while others view them until they are 15.

    Example: Mark Zuckerberg and Amy Winehouse were both born in '84, but Zuck is a typical Millennial while Amy had many gen X traits.

    I have a lot of light friendships with millennials, but I only count a few people as close friends. Most of them haven't been alive long enough to make the cut yet. Of my relationships with millennials I have no problems with most of the ones I get to know. I think they get far more flack than they deserve, but I suspect that's been true of most generations.

    I'm 84 and I remember when "millenial" first got used, to basically describe exactly me and my generation in the work force in the mid '00s.

    All of the "who's a *real* millenial" talk came later, which made me think, hmm, I guess I am? Since the term first came around describing... us?

    And yea, as has been mentioned. Zuckerberg was 84 and like the quintessential millenial.

    What I don't understand is why people want to be included lol. It was kinda derogatory when it started (still is really). So entitled! etc.

    I was born in '90 and I have some friends on here that are older... I think. Or that's what they say. I mean it sounds like they were born in the 70's so they are like 20 years, my senior. It has been going well so far. We just chat about our experiences so far.
    @Spacenik86 I am also interested in that stuff! Maybe its because we grew up with a lot of big alien movies. I remember people saying stuff about the 2000's going to be the years we went to space!
