There’s a lot of talk about the habits of millennials that assumes everyone in that group is similar. Keep in mind that a millennial is anyone born between the years 1981 and 1996. That means that in the year 2019, a millennial is somewhere between the ages of 23 and 38. That’s a substantial age gap. Do you know many people who just barely graduated college who have much in common with those pushing 40? Probably not. That being said, it’s common for people to date within their generation—so to speak. Baby boomers marry baby boomers, generation x’s marry gen x’s. You get the idea. But the two ends of the millennial generation are so vastly different—it’s a very unique generation like that—that there are some major discrepancies between the two that probably make dating within the group hard. I’ve seen it happen.
The older end still wants to marry
Those in their late thirties, today, still want to get married. Older male millennials especially tend to still believe in marriage. They will admit they are looking for a wife and wouldn’t mind having kids one day. Their peers still have traditional weddings where the bride wears white and the whole thing.
