Totally... I, too, was born in '84 but I can't stand most people that are only a few years younger than me. I think it also has a lot to do with the person's family. I tend to like younger kids that have either:I was born in '84 which makes me categorically a gen-y kid but I've always felt out of step with my own generation. The ethos of generation X makes more sense to me personally but I have nothing really tangible in common with you guys. I understand what drives my generation to do what it does and why living in public with your whole life digitally networked is so important to my peers but it makes me cringe. Also, I work with a bunch of adult children who were born in the late eighties & early nineties and it's terrifying how ignorant and self absorbed they are when they try to corral me into the incessant chatter. Ok, that probably sounds bitchy but I guess I mean to say that in my own way I kind of understand where you're coming from?
