For Gen X, sex has more value
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.”
