For Gen X, sex has more value

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Ac­cord­ing to a new study, there are quite a few dif­fer­ences in thoughts and at­ti­tudes to work, life and love be­tween Gen X and the Mil­len­nial gen­er­a­tion.

The study sur­veyed more than 12,000 adults across 21 coun­tries. It showed that Amer­i­can Gen X’ers chose good sex (45%) as the most im­por­tant thing in a good re­la­tion­ship, fol­lowed by friend­ship (40%) and ro­mance (39%). Mil­len­ni­als chose friend­ship (58%) fol­lowed by ro­mance (40%) and good sex (30%.) The re­sults also found that al­though Gen X’ers are less likely to feel lonely than Mil­len­ni­als, over­all US re­spon­dents of both gen­er­a­tions feel lone­lier than their non-US coun­ter­parts. In the US, 52% of Gen X agree they “feel lonely” while 56% of Mil­len­ni­als agree with that state­ment. Abroad how­ever, 42% of Gen X and 53% of Mil­len­ni­als “feel lonely.”
